X-Factor Voting Figures

I don't normally comment on these sort of things, but the voting figures from this year's X-Factor (2012) have been released and make interesting reading from a behavioural perspective.

Although Christopher Maloney was massively in front from week one he lost his lead in week eight after Ella Henderson was knocked out. Her vote seemed to entirely transfer to James Arthur along with bits of everyone elses.

So does this mean that viewers were voting for who was the best singer or who was most likely to win? I suspect, that like political elections, there is a strong tendency to want to vote for the winning candidate.
