Rating The Acts!
Before I get into my final blog, I would like to welcome another addition to the X Factor family. We've all obviously had glimpses of this arrival, but it really was last night that this very odd individual entered our screens. Enter the applause for Bitchy BarlowTM.
Week nine is semi-final night on The X Factor. 4 acts need to become 3, to enter the BIGGEST FINAL EVER ! on the X Factor. Yes, we get that the production will bring the Final to Wembley. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't buy a ticket to witness the singing live of this sorry bunch. However, the show must go on, and the show must have a winner.
Hello everyone! It's Week Eight on the X Factor tonight, meaning, there are just TWO more weeks until the winner is crowned. I know I should be sad, but in reality, I couldn't be happier that this season is coming to an end. Maybe with the new year we'll get a new judging panel. Or something. Whatever.
Am I being too dramatic if I say that this was the most blessed week in X Factor history? I believe not. Mid week, reports emerged that Frankie was kicked off the show for inappropriate behavior, which, is, expected. I was not surprised. Some days after, he said it was because of drugs. Again, no need for a poker face. The second good thing was that the first acts to be eliminated, the ones the judges kicked out of their team, because they were lacking in potential, or because they had better people in, one of these acts could get into the competition again. The lucky winner of this opportunity was Amelia.
Another week has gone by, and this time, thankfully, without much gossip. Kelly returned, apparently holding no grudge (yeah...) towards Tulisa, Gary summoned the judges to talk about the contestants (yeah...) and themes were changed mid-week. I am not entirely clear what it is now, but with this panel, the theme really doesn’t matter. With this covered, let’s get to the performances now, shall we?
First of all, I’d like to say that this week was inconsequential. I did not see any progress, any shocker, or anything out of the ordinary. Just a week of performances, like a cup of tea after a boring morning. With that in mind, I’ll rank the acts.
Wow! Wow wow wow! After a week of drama and sensationalism, I really though this week's live shows would be terrible. I mean, was I wrong to assume this? To get everyone up to speed, Kelly left for the US following Tulisa's bully accusations towards Misha. While there, she got a viral infection on her throat and the doctors prohibited her from flying. So Alexandra Burke, winner of the fifth series, stood in her place. In other news, Rythmix changed their name to Little Mix, and The Risk lost Ashley and gained Ashford, from Nu Vibe. He was the one that could sing. That's about it, I think.
Hello and welcome dear readers. This is Silvio R writing about the most disappointing night of X Factor live finals since I can remember. So, to shake things up, I am still going to rate the acts, but not based on singing ability, rather on their ability to keep me awake and maybe give me some kind of emotion, like laughter, sadness, or any sort of excitement. Remember, vocal performance will add points, but the focus will be on the performance.
Last night's theme was "Love & Heartbreak". Oh my. When I heard about it I though of getting a box of tissues, but on second thought I didn't. We don't have Rebecca and Matt this year! We have Johnny and Misha, so the box really is unnecessary. Without further ado, let's get to the chart!
We're finally there. After 7 Audition shows, and 2 weeks of pre live shows, they're here. The live shows of X Factor. The Next Generation of Judges. 16 contestants. There was a lot happening last night on the X Factor, and the 2 and a half hour duration of the first live shows, certainly allowed everything to be showcased. The viewers might have had a lit case of fatigue after the programme, but what the hell, right?
