Instead, street dance troupe Diversity were crowned that year’s champions. Hollie has now taken to TikTok to open up about her time on the show, leading to many questioning whether the talent competition has been fixed the whole time.Hollie sang the song Eidelweiss from The Sound of Music during the semi-final, but she broke down in tears mid-song in a heartbreaking moment.Hollie has since made shocking claims that she was set up to fail by producers of the show who dictated what she could and couldn’t sing.Speaking about being made to sing Eidelweiss, she said it “wasn't a song I'd ever heard of before”.She claimed: "I wanted to sing Nessun Dorma [by Italian composer Giacomo Puccini], like a massive opera song, like BAM, I'm here."She continued: "I knew I could sing it, I said I knew I was strong enough and they [producers] said no."Hollie believes that show bosses didn’t want her to win the competition, and that’s why they wouldn’t let her choose her own song.She said: "They were like, 'no, you can't sing that' and the only reason why I think they said no - because I was definitely able to sing it - was that they didn't want me to win."Despite her loss, Hollie doesn’t believe that the entire show is a fix.Read more on dailystar.co.uk
