So this week was the third of the live shows. The silly waste of time acts are slowly leaving the show. Diva Fever, Storm Lee. Who on earth is voting for Wagner? I mean, seriously. It’s the Jedward syndrome. Guilty Pleasure week, which means another sing-whatever-you-want week.
Belle Amie gave their best performance so far, but they are weak. And they are not a group, you can see it in their eyes and the way they hug each other during the song like saying “look, we’re good friends”. We’re not stupid girls. So Simon’s only bet is the other prefabricated boyband, One Direction. Or shall I call them Liam and his “pussycat dolls”? These five little Biebers will get far in the competition, but their rendition of Pink’s Nobody Knows was so messy!
Aiden is still creepy. I mean, really. It’s ok to put your own stamp on your performances, as Ms. Minogue would say, but for me he’s getting too bizarre. TreyC Cohen is one of my favourites, but her Led Zeppelin performance wasn’t good. Her vocals were great, as always, but it was another mess! Rock is not her style, I like when she brings out the soul in her voice, like last week singing Purple Rain.
Tesco Mary is starting to get boring. I do love this lady, but she cannot do the same every week! And no matter how good her vocals are, for me, she ain’t got the X Factor – She has the Britain’s Got Talent Factor! Cher put on a Ruth Lorenzo wig and did as usual. I’m trying hard to like this girl. She’s current, yeah, whatever Simon, but last year there was Graziella who also rapped (and quite better), and you didn’t put her through – as a solo act, at least.
Rebecca. Oh Rebecca how much I love you. As usual, flawless. Her voice is so Amy Winehouse-ish. But I think she should start stepping up her game and choosing some more risky songs.And Katie Voguel. I mean Waissel. Or was it simply V? Now seriously, she’s starting to grow on me. For me, she was the best of the night, and King Of The Swingers is certainly a guilty pleasure! I liked the 20s Chicago-like transformation. And she’s a funny girl. (Ok, that’s enough for Katie!)
Oh, I forgot about John and Paije. They both have really strong vocals but man, they’re so forgetful!
So, after another mimed group performance, Cheryl’s great act and an easy-to-forget Michael Bublé appearance, it was time for the results. Can’t believe TreyC was in the bottom 2. And John, well, that was an easy bet. Bye John. I think he could have done much better (maybe some more exciting songs, Louie?), but anyways, he was never going to get to the final.
