  • Clever scientists predict Danyl Johnson will win this year's X Factor, but who do YOU think will walk away with the title?

    X Factor sponsors Talk Talk have come up with a scientific formula to predict who’s most likely to win the contest this year, and if it’s right, Danyl Johnson will walk away with the 2009’s title.

    Researchers at Talk Talk – who are sponsoring the show for the first time – have spent weeks studying tapes of previous X Factor shows to determine what makes a winner.

    After watching epsodes going back to 2004, the clever employees studied contestants on eight different counts, including appearance, singing talent and determination to calculate who they thought would win.

    When tested on previous contestants, they found superstar Leona Lewis and singing sensation Alexandra Burke both scored highly. As did this year’s Danyl Johnson.

    But fellow winners Steve Brookstein and Leon Jackson didn’t score well at all, which might explain their lack of chart success.

    If only they had known!

    Although theory predicts Danyl will be this year’s winner, after his recent bust up with Simon Cowell, we’re not so sure.

    Who do YOU think will walk away with the title?
