Save Sam Callahan!
He’s the fresh faced newest talent in the music industry making waves over on this year’s X Factor contest. Cheeky munchkin Sam Callahan, 19, hopes to win the singing contest, making it through to the fifth live week. However, the cutesy singer/songwriter is under tough competition as the X Factor bosses are said to frown upon Sam as a music act.
Every week he’s also been trashed by judge Gary Barlow with fellow judges Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne attacking the teen sensation for failing to be vocally sound on the shows. Two weeks ago, fellow singer Abi Alton, 19, was in floods of tears on stage after Osbourne’s comments.
This week Sam, who set up his online shop selling his own merchandise was slammed by the show’s producers on X Factor and plan to put him in a less favourable light on the show with the judges and his performance staging.
Many fear Sam will be booted out of the X Factor this week and could face the bottom two in the sing off if fans fail to vote for, as mentor Louis Walsh adds “Hardworking” Sam.
Sam urgently needs his “Callafans” in support of his career on the show. X Factor boss and producer Simon Cowell is not a reported fan of Sam. Cowell, who previously felt there were three contestants who could win, and two more if they really worked at it, could do. Syco Entertainment hope for Tamera, as favourite, to win, and plan to dress her excellently and produce amazing staging for her. Cowell admitted girlgroup Miss Dynamix, who left two weeks ago, where one of the five star acts. The others are believed to be Rough Copy, Sam Bailey and Nicholas McDonald.
Essex hunk Sam, who spoke to Closer magazine, spoke of negative comments from a friend about his X Factor stint. “I‘ve been lucky with the support from friends and family, but I did have one nasty comment from a friend.
“He was saying I had changed now I’m on TV and I wasn’t making time for the people I used to know. I felt annoyed – I’ve been living in the house and spending every minute rehearsing or performing. I don’t have much free time but, once I do, I’ll spend some quality time with the people who matter.”
Sam thanked his fans on Twitter, on Wednesday, including supportive Westlife singer Shane Filan. “Just wanna say a big thank you to @ShaneFilan for believing in me! This means a lot to me mate x.”
“Some things change but ill always be the same old kid from Essex with big dreams & my heart on my sleeve..Never forget where it began! #true”
Sam has also done charity work, stripping off into a chilly pond for the Teenage Cancer trust in some cheeky snaps below.
Looks like Sam is going to need his Callafans on Saturday to vote and save his booty from the bottom two to prove his worth to the show and its producers, who seem to secretly wish to send home Callahan.
Tax evader Gary Barlow’s scathing comments to Sam included “The problem is everyone else is so much better than you.”
Poor Sam said he felt like “Gary Barlow’s punchbag.”
Many feel Callahan is likely to lose votes to second favourite Nicholas McDonald and front-runner Tamera Foster. Simon Cowell wants either of them to win.
