X Factor 2010: Mary Byrne gets her Shirley Bassey on for a second time

Yes, reprising her original audition song, Mary Byrne unleashes her inner Shirley Bassey with another rendition of I Who Have Nothing. This should be good.

Looks like Mary is always going to be styled in slimming black throughout the live shows. This is the third week running.

Oh dear. I wasn’t expecting this, but Mary’s performance tonight was ever so slightly half-hearted. There wasn’t anything overt, but after a storming performance last week, I just felt that Mary was a little bit under par tonight. We know she can belt out the big notes

Judges’ Comments

  • Louis Walsh: We did change our song. Everybody loves you. Everybody I meet on the street. Mary, you don’t use any tricks, there’s no dancing girls, it’s all about you and your voice, and that’s what [[The X Factor 2010|The X Factor]] is.
  • Dannii Minogue: We know how nervous you’ve been this week. You only have to listen to the cheers in this room to feel that love. When you sing best is when you don’t leave any gas in the tank. You make us believe that we can do anything. To go from working in a supermarket to performing like that, it is world class. You perform like you have been on that stage for years and years. Please sing a current song, because I think people old and young love you.
  • Cheryl Cole: You represent real women with real life experience. It’s actually amazing to watch you pull everything you’ve got into it. You draw us all in. 
  • Simon Cowell: I agree with the girls, there’s an awful lot of people who are going to be relating to you. However, I do actually agree with what Danni said, which is you can’t come out here every week and do pretty much the same song, Louis. You’re going to be around for a long time, Mary.
