Single Review: Jedward – ‘Bad Behaviour’

  • Published in: Music

“It approaches – and frequently bulldozes through – the point at which it becomes parody” 1 STAR Digital Release: July 3, 2011 Physical Release: N/A It’s hard to imagine quite how an act whose foundations and, ultimately, their time in the media spotlight, are kept half buoyant by their partiality for overwrought gimmickry and the…

Single Review: Wonderland – ‘Starlight’

“A more sophisticated effort. It recalls the sound of girl bands from the 90’s, perhaps a little too much” 3 STARS Digital Release: June 5, 2011 Physical Release: June 5, 2011 Louis Walsh’s and Kian Egan’s “Next Big Thing”: a talent search that called for “real, undiscovered talent”, and the fruit of said talent scouting…

The X Factor Final Weekend

  • Published in: Uncategorised

After months of auditions and live shows, The X Factor 2010 came to an end with Matt Cardle being crowned the winner of this year’s series.


The Essex boy thoroughly deserved to win the competition and this is just the start for him.


Rebecca Ferguson finished runner-up to Matt but the Liverpudlian beauty can hold her head high and be proud of what she has achieved.


One Direction ended up finishing third and even though the boys did not win the competition, they are the next big boy band. Just look at where JLS are now despite not winning the show.

THE X FACTOR Semi-Final Week

  • Published in: Uncategorised

Mary Byrne’s X Factor road to the final came to an end after losing the sing-off to Cher Lloyd in the semi-final week.


Simon Cowell, Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole decided to put Cher through to the final which meant Mary had to leave the competition.


However the Irish singer can hold her head high and be very proud of what she has achieved on The X Factor.


Cher will be in the final alongside Matt Cardle, Rebecca Ferguson and One Direction. The final itself is too close to call and any of the four acts can win this year’s series.


Here are my thoughts on the semi-final performances.

The X Factor, Week 9 Review

  • Published in: Uncategorised

Woah, it’s all been kicking off in the X Factor household hasn’t it!? Cher’s had yet another strop, this time at a camera woman, just because she kept forgetting the lyrics to her song during rehearsals, then she has a bigger paddy and refuses to go to the Narnia première (and turn down a chance of meeting Joe McElderry!? Silly thing!), then Rebecca only goes and begs Louis to be her mentor because Cheryl’s favouring Cher; Simon get’s a bit of a nasty cold (don’t everyone rush into high alert) but fear not, Lemsip was at the ready and he’s on top arrogant form tonight, ladies and gents.

X FACTOR (ROCK WEEK)

  • Published in: Uncategorised

 


The X Factor journey came to an end for both Katie Waissel and Wagner as both acts failed to make it to the semi-finals of this year’s competition.


Katie received the fewest votes and Wagner was beaten comprehensibly by Mary Byrne in the sing-off.


Mary now joins Rebecca Ferguson, Matt Cardle, Cher Lloyd and One Direction in what should be a cracking semi-final.


It’s fair to say that both Katie and Wagner received a lot of attention from the press and they were at times at the centre of controversial issues. But both acts battled on bravely and I’m sure we have not seen the last of them.


Here are my thoughts on the weekend’s performances. My prediction as to who will win this years competition may just surprise you.

The X Factor, Week 7 Review

  • Published in: Uncategorised

FORE NOTE: Yes, I realise Aiden Grimshaw has since been eliminated but in my eyes he was still the star of the show, next to Matt. SO THERE. Please don’t tell me I’m the only one who found last Saturday’s X Factor utterly un-engaging from start to finish? Maybe it’s because I wasn’t keen on…

‘The X Factor’, Week 6 Review

  • Published in: Music

I know you all hate him here, but I love him s here’s my piece on aiden Grimshaw’s departure:


X Factor just lost it’s most real contestant since it’s inception. Aiden, I’ll buy you that beer. You were the most hardworking contestant with the most unique voice. But we should know by now, someone unique will never win The X Factor: Simon wants a tasteless, unoriginal copy of a greater popstar than anything his show will ever produce, just so he can sell a couple of million records while they’re hot. Don’t waste your time Aiden, get out there and get writing and recording. One thing is for sure: it’s going to be plastic, 2-dimentional pub singers and puppets from here on out for that vile exploitation of glorified karaoke.
