Belle Amie decided to channel another iconic girl group this week, singing Bananarama’s Venus. Except they bounce out of four coffins and miss their cues, sounding awful from the get-go.
They’re styled brilliantly, and they recover from the early faux pas pretty well. Still, there’s something a bit dead about this girlband – I don’t care a lot about them, and their performances are something to be endured rather than looked forward to.
Is it just me folks, or are Belle Amie boring for you too?
- Louis Walsh: You’re getting your act together. The styling and the staging look absolutely great. We need a bit of girl power on X Factor and I think that’s you guys.
- Dannii Minogue: Girls, it was fun but I think when you hear it back, the vocals…if you’d put as much effort into the vocals it would have come across really good.
- Cheryl Cole: You seemed more excited, which was refreshing. It was probably the most confident performance yet. But I would like to see you do something that isn’t girl band does girl band again.
- Simon Cowell: I don’t think you got enough credit actually for what you just did. It was great fun. I loved the whole costumes, the whole creative, I loved the fact you actually aren’t taking yourselves too seriously. And I think, genuinely, that it was your best performance so far.
