One Direction take Pink’s Nobody Knows for a spin on tonight’s [[The X Factor 2010|X Factor]]. Liam Payne kicks off on lead vocals. He’s much better than last week.
I hate myself for saying this, but this is One Direction’s best performance so far. Brilliant song choice. Straightforward boyband staging and brilliant lights in the background. Liam’s vocals were spot on, where previously there have been tuning issues. The vocal harmonies weren’t particularly taxing, but the guys got through them without any problems.
And of course, the girls are already loving One Direction. But it helps that they’ve tidied up the singing this week at least. Definitely their best this far in the show.
- Louis Walsh: It’s like five Justin Biebers. Liam brilliant lead vocal from you. This band, you’re really getting your act together.
- Dannii Minogue: Being a band, everybody wants to live the dream with you. And it seems like you’re living the dream…another great performance. I’m not sure why Pink’s a guilty pleasure though.
- Cheryl Cole: You are my guilty pleasure. When you watch the VT and you see all the hysteria you caused this week, that’s what it should do. That’s what boybands should do.
- Simon Cowell: With regards to the song. We chose the song, didn’t work. But the good thing about you guys is that there’s no bleating on about excuses. It’s just a song, you grab hold of it, within 24 hours. Apart from being a great performance, vocally you’ve made some huge performances.
