Exclusively talking to omg! Conor told us that despite the criticism that Rylan and Christopher Maloney have been getting for not being the strongest singers, there is room for them in today's music industry.

He told us:  "The weird thing is, if you look at the whole Gangham style thing, it is a little bit ridiculous if you think about it- but it's still one of the biggest hits of the year so far.

"I suppose with Rylan, maybe not Christopher, he could easily release something like that and have a worldwide hit. You can't take that away from him."

We've never really thought of it like that.

Conor, we like your way of thinking.

Conor Maynard was also quick to dismiss that The X Factor should finish after gaining the lowest viewing figures in its nine year history.

He explained: "There is always new talent. Maybe the way the show is structured could change; maybe that's what's dated about it and making people think that the show is over.

"There is always talent out there so maybe having different ways to find it will be cool."

Well spinning chairs didn't seem to work for The Voice so the X Factor bosses might need to put there thinking caps on ahead of next series.

Conor live streamed a gig on Tuesday via Youtube. Ah, the wonders of the internet.

On Tuesday Conor Maynard played very special gig for BT Infinity which saw him go back to basics, performing a set that was streamed live on Youtube.

"I think it's always cool for me to do a show that relates to me as an artist, so obviously doing the BT Infinity show which is all about fast broadband made sense," he said.

He continued: "How I started was online so the fact that I get to stream live back on Youtube is getting back to my roots and showing first hand to my fans how I got to where I am now which was posting covers online from my room."
