The Brazilian crooner has picked up some unlikely celebrity supporters...
Wagner Carrilho may have been heavily criticised by the judges and fellow finalists on this years show, but he appears to have picked up some unlikely celeb fans in the shape of Justin Bieberand Katy Perry.
Speaking of their spat, Justin defend Wagner, telling the tabloid: "I thought she was a little mean to him. He just seems humble and happy to be there."
Former guest judge, Katy Perry, agreed with Justin, adding: "He's fun. He's taking the criticism the judges give him really well. The public are crazy for him."
Bookies have since slashed odds on Wagner winning the show from 100-1 to 10-1, with Louis Walsh's act, Carrilho could find himself in trouble this weekend, as another double eviction rumour has surfaced, meaning he could be in the sing-off for the first time.
Meanwhile, XF favouriteMatt Cardlehas admitted that there are tensions between himself and Wagner, claiming that the Over-28's contestant moved out of the hopeful's house in North London after they had an argument.
Speaking to X magazine, the Essex boy stated: "I just told him what I thought of him. The contestants are in a position where they feel they can't necessarily say what they want."
"But I can. And Wagner annoys a lot of people. So I went and told him exactly what I thought."
He added: "I swore at him. Yeah I was rude to him, but he's rude to everyone he meets. That's the way it is."
