Despite all the critique he gets for being "dated" and "cheesy", Christopher Maloney is still often praised for the strength of his singing ability.
However, pitch-perfect analysts from 63336 have revealed that he turned in the WORST vocal performance on last night's show, hitting more bum notes than the heavily-criticised Rylan Clark and District 3.
In fact, in joint second place is Kye Sones - meaning it was both of Gary Barlow's acts who failed to keep their vocals in tune.
Heavily praised Jahmene Douglas is also in second, along with Rylan.
Ella Henderson was apparently the best performer, hitting only two bum notes. Jade Ellis, despite being savaged during her judges' critique, is the second best, with three dodgy notes.
The list in full:
1. Christopher Maloney - 10 bum notes
=2. Kye Sones - 8
=2. Rylan Clark - 8
=2. Jahmene Douglas - 8
=5. District 3 - 6
=5. James Arthur - 6
7. Union J - 5
8. Jade Ellis - 3
9. Ella Henderson - 2
"Each week everyone likes to debate if the judges got it right or wrong with little real analysis of the performances,” explained Helen Wright, General Manager of 63336.
"63336 used dedicated researchers to analyse each act and found that Christopher Maloney really struggled the most this week, missing notes in both the high and low registers. He was surprisingly even more out of tune than Rylan, whom many people discount as the show’s weakest singer.
"In reality Rylan sang fairly well in tune, hitting the same number of flat notes as both Kye and even show favourite Jahmene."
