Last night X Factor chiefs revealed that every act gets ‘technical support’.

But it seems that some get more of a helping hand than others.

A show insider said: ‘Every week session singers record backing tracks to some songs.

‘But soundmen are told to turn down the levels of the twins‘ mics so their vocals are mostly covered by the backing singers. Often mics are so low the twins‘ singing would be barely audible.‘

The source also added that Jedward’s Saturday performance of Queen’s Under Pressure was lowered to a ‘ridiculous level’, only being raised for the rapping part.

No doubt this news will leave fans angry, after thousands complained when the public voted to keep the pair in.
