X Factor Semi Final 5th December 2009: Olly Murs 'Can You Feel It'

Olly Murs opened tonight's X Factor show with the Michael Jackson classic 'Can You Feel It.'

Whilst Olly isn't as strong a vocalist as some of the other remaining contestants and was a bit pitchy at the start of the song, luckily he has more than enough charisma and energy to make up for it.

I was a little concerned about this song for Olly tonight as it is soooo fast paced. However Olly managed to integrate all elements of the routine perfectly. The crotch grabbing was a fitting tribute to MJ and he didn't even topple off the tower of steps in the middle of the stage, an achievment I think you'll agree.

I loved it, what about you?

Louis: You’re an all-round entertainer, you deserve to be in the final.

Dannii: Can you feel it? Yes, we can all feel it in the whole room tonight. You have the full package! You have to be in the final next week.

Cheryl: Everybody loves you – you’re an entertainer and everybody loves you.

Simon: Once again, you put on a great show, you sang it really well, you look like a star, you’ve got the presence of a star. I hope people vote for you.

Didn't you think it was

Didn't you think it was uncomfortably slowed down? It was a good performance, but didn't have the energy or excitement of the original.
