X Factor 2012: Chris Maloney and Kye Sones - Rylan isn't like Jedward!
MSN Entertainment's Kerri-Ann Roper and Lucy Mapstone with Kye Sones and Christopher Maloney
Gary Barlow's Overs category on the X Factor 2012 is certainly generating a lot of buzz and we sat down with Chris Maloney and Kye Sones to get all of the latest gossip from the show. From the notorious Rylan to being covered in soot, you can see what the guys had to say in our webchat below...
Cat: What do you guys think of Rylan, as I think he fab and is unfair how people treat him.
Kye: He is fab, he's brilliant and he's a star. If you think his voice is good or not he's full of star quality. You can hold a conversation with him, he's not like Jedward...
Chris: It's like, with Rylan, people forget even though this is a competition we're all normal people that have come into this competition and we've all still got feelings, it's upsetting to know when people do say nasty things about anyone it's hurtful and we all try and support each other.
MSN Entertainment: If you were to take a fellow contestant, a judge and a presenter (Dermot/Olly/Caroline) on a holiday, who would you take, where would you go and why?
Kye: Tulisa so I can see her in a bikini.
Chris: I'd take Gary to Disney World I think we'd have a scream on all of the big rides.
Kye: For a contestant I'd take George because he's like my little brother.
Chris: Contestant wise I'd take Union J to make sure I looked after them from all of the screaming girls. I would also take Caroline Flack because I think she'd be a scream on holilday.
Sally: What's it like getting to known Gary?
Chris: It's a dream come true for me, it's a pleasure to work with him, he's so hands on as a mentor and I'd class him as a friend now too.
Tasmin TW: Who have you gotten closest to out of all the contestants?
Chris: We're all very close but the closest friendship is with Kye, we've shared a room since boot camp.
We've more of less been together for nine months.
MSN Entertainment: How are you finding all the attention on you? Does it feel like you're living in a bubble?
Kye: The longer you stay in it the more it becomes larger and larger. But it's fun; I'm not complaining at all.
Chris: All of the love and support and help from our supporters has been amazing, without them and their support we wouldn't be here.
MSN Entertainment: Chris, there's been lots of rumours that you are a diva - are you a diva and if not, where do you think these rumours came from?
Chris: Right, I'm the furthest from a diva, Louis made the comment and it was, when the question was asked on Xtra Factor, the first person that popped into his head was my name. So he said that I was a Diva. I asked him afterwards and he said; 'Chris, you just popped inot my head.' No hard feelings, I love the guy, it's just unfortunate he picked me. I'm far from a diva, when I go and look after me nan, I take her shopping and make her tea and I think that if I was a diva, I'd get someone in to do it for me...
MSN Entertainment: You've been getting the VIP treatment in a luxury hotel - getting manicures, pedicures and facials - have you changed your everyday beauty regimes because of this?
Chris: I haven't had a chance all of my beauty products are still in the bag unfortunately I'm still just using my Lynx and stuff...
Kye: My beauty regime was non-existent before this. I was used to getting in covered in soot at work so now it's all of a sudden we've been given all of these face creams! It's amazing being put in an environment like this that you're not used to. We feel really spoilt!
Amy: What would you call your album?
Kye: I'd call it Never Give Up, because that's my motto.
Chris: I'd call mine Don't Lose Your Dream.
XMaloneysCrewXL Chris why are you so perfect and when are we getting married?!
Chris: I'm very flattered but aren't' we supposed to get engaged first?
Fedrica: Kye, when was the last time you cried?
Kye: When Melanie was singing her saving song last night. I'm not a big crier either, it takes a lot for me to cry.
Beth: Do you get overwhelmed by the support you're getting?
Chris: Yeah, totally overwhelmed, the support from the general public has been absolutely overwhelming to a point where it's sort of surreal, and it's such a, I feel so, heartwarming to know people like me and enjoy me singing and who I am. I'm quite insecure about myself but it's so nice for people to like me and I just want to thank everyone.
Kye: Definitely, I think every time the results show is on and especially last night getting called out third to last, not that it's in that order, but after your name gets called out, it hit me last night. I'm really grateful that people picked up the phone and voted for me. It makes you think you want to buy every single person and buy them a drink; you can't express what the feeling is. It's very humbling.
Sophie: Would you ever date a fan?
Kye: Why not? I'm a fan of all my ex-girlfriends. (Smooth!)
A final word from Chris...
Chris: Can I just say throughout my X Factor journey all of my supporters have been with me, so I just want to thank everyone, picking up the phone and to keep me in the competition, I just want to thank each and every one of them, I think they're fantastic.
