So, these themes they have each week to prove the contestants versatility – they’re all pop songs pretty much aren’t they? George Michael this week, the diva songs etc – why don’t they keep to a genre, ie. the big band week, rock week and include country and western, r’n’b, reggae, show tunes and so on – that’d sort them out, wouldn’t it? I’m watching these backwards, by the way, in case you’re wondering.
Joe does the Elton written, almost film theme, showtune which is wonderfully done; the sun won’t go down on him tonight; Olly does groovy George, Fast Love and its another whole performance by the most improved of all. Danyl gets the definitive George, Careless Whisper – it’s my favourite performance by him, and his most understated. Dannii agrees it’s perfect; Louis says he’s trying too hard and Cheryl says it’s flat. Can someone tell them it’s not about them, please! Jedward the only ones to do an actual Wham song, obviously, I’m Your Man mixed with Wham Rap. Simon’s face when they start the rap – ROTFLMAO. Stacey’s best for me so far, found myself disappointed on other weeks, but her body language and facial expressions when she stops singing I still find so off-putting. But she’s got the whole of Essex voting for her, so she’ll be ok. Lloyd sings Faith, not bad, but not good enough. What was that note at the end? Was he supposed to do that? Oh.
I enjoyed them all tonight, must have been the enforced break!
