Matt Cardle - General Discussion

Nope, it's fairly common to happen, Olly released before Joe, JLS released before Alexandra, they've always held the winner over until the live shows, ever since Leona.
I think it's a bit odd that he doesn't seem to be getting the attention from Syco that Cher and One Direction are. When We Collide was a big seller and he dominated the voting on the show. It's possible that they want to market him as a "serious artist" and so are keeping him out of the tabloids etc.
