"I love being on twitter. Thank you for allowing me to beat the other 3 in the popularity poll. Paula looked like she'd sucked on a lemon! [sic] "
He also went on to claim that the female judges were threatened by one of his acts, 14-year-old Drew Ryniewicz.
"Drew was amazing. The girls @PaulaAbdul and @NicoleScherzy are threatened by her. "

Morgan tweeted: "At last! Bring. It. On. love #iampiers. Save your breath @SimonCowell - nobody's watching X Factor, my show's about to start #CNN @PiersTonight. "
