After their shock exit from X Factor one time bookies favourites Diva Fever (69) are laying the blame firmly at Simon's door. They believe it was his choice of song that led to them getting booted off on Sunday.
Craig Saggers, one half of the Diva's said: 'We wanted something that could show off our vibrato, after all I am classically trained and my fans haven't heard the real me yet.'
Bandmate Josef Al-Smadi added: 'I'm smadi as hell! We begged Simon for a Nessun dorma or La traviata tune but he gives us I will survive, but we didn't did we!'
The Diva's have vowed not to give up their plight for fame and stardom and they have already secured a tour of their home town's old age people homes.
