Kandy Rain were not booed says club manager

Reports that Kandy Rain were booed when they made a live appearance at Kingston’s McCluskys nightclub on Saturday have been denied. The manager Mark Byford came to their defence saying They weren’t booed at all.

"They were really nice girls and sang four songs. They were on stage for about 15 minutes and went down well.

"I thought we’d have loads of guys turn up to see them but there was actually lots of girls."

Well let's hope it true cause Miss Frank are heading down there shortly as as part of a deal secured by the club’s group where X-Factor contestants will each perform there the week after leaving the show.

Mr Byford said: "The X Factor is great for us, especially in the run up to Christmas and during the recession. It’s just great entertainment."

Kandy Rain's tour gets off to bad start

Oh-oh it looks like Kandy Rain's much touted "global" tour is getting off on the right footing.

Heat Magazine reports that their outing at McClusky's club in Kingston, Surrey ended in disarray as the girls were booed so badly by the audience that they were forced to flee the stage.

That's a damn shame, I bet they never got that at Secrets.

Kandy Rain are unhappy over their treatment on the reality TV talent show The X-Factor and claimed the show is fixed. The girls who were the first performers to be kicked off last weekend have claimed their past as strippers was unnecessarily being brought up and this hampered their chances in the show.

Kandy Rain are first out. on X-Factor 2009

Girl Group Kandy Rain were the first performers to be voted off X-Factor 2009. The girls along with Rachel Adedeji received the fewest votes after Saturdays night's performance by all twelve acts.

Kandy Rain had performed Robert Palmer's Addicted To Love

The Judges were split on the performance with Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh happy but both Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue focused on the girl's styling claiming it detracted from their music and focused on the past that Kandy Rain wanted to leave behind.

However the fate of the girls was not in the hands of the Judges but the voters and the voters sided with Cheryl and Dannii and voted Kandy Rain in the bottom two.

It was now Kandy Rain versus Rachel Adedeji in the sing-off battle to survive. The girls were free to sing their own choice of song to sway the audience and they chose Christina Aguilera's Fighter

With Louis away in Spain following the death of Stephen Gately the only Judges on Sunday's result show were Simon, Cheryl and Dannii and if majority agreed on an act to send home that would be the end.

Louis's vote in his absence went to Kandy Rain as their mentor, Simon also voted for the girls while both Dannii and Cheryl voted for Rachel. With the Judges split equally the decision went back to the public and the public decided it was the end of the road for Kandy Rain
