Can Google Predict X-Factor’s Winner?

Who knows, I thought i’d find out.

I did a systematic Google Insights search for each contestant and compared their search popularities, removing the least popular to find myself with a final five contestants.

Here’s what happened, with % share of search:

Lucie Jones:20%
Lloyd Daniels: 22%
Olly Murs: 10%
Miss Frank: 8%
Jamie Archer: 8%

You can see the live changes here.

So, i’ll put my faith in the Internet and say that Lloyd Daniels will win.

It’s interesting to see that the searches peak each Sunday night, this could be as people look to decide who to vote for and then after the show, people Google their favourite.

I should make it clear I am not a fan of X-Factor, I want to see if Google can predict the future :-)
