The X Factor – Blockbuster Movie Night
Andrew Lawson finally got a decent song to sing with Love is All Around, or maybe I just don’t hate it as much as last week’s Crocodile Rock. Everyone was hinting it, but maybe Kyle Sandiland’s not mentoring Andrew this week was an advantage. Kyle tried to claim the song choice was a collaborative decision between him and Brian McFadden, but somehow I doubt it.
Maybe I was imagining it but was Kyle looking a little sheepish when Andrew was getting gushing compliments for his performance tonight.
I thought Natalie Imbruglia looked stunning tonight, and would love to know the colour of her lipstick. Luke Jacobz has really grown with the show, and is fitting into his role well.
But gee didn’t they milk the Altiyan Childs going off into a cave and disappearing. If you listened to Ronan Keating tonight, being emotionally unstable is one of the criteria to make you a certifiable rock star. Altiyan’s performance was good tonight, but I won’t be surprised if he is in the bottom two.
Disappearing for 24 hours is not too strange if he went to a hotel or friends house, but going to a cave well that is another thing entirely. And if anyone knows his former fiancee contact me as I would love to know what she is like, considering Altiyan has taken nearly a decade to get over her.
However maybe girls dig the rock star bad boy, as Shelly Horton on The Xtra Factor biological clock was clanging or she was going through early menopause when she was gushing about Alytian flirting with her in the make-up room. She was looking very flushed indeed.
Onto the performances:
India-Rose Madderom – Fame
Can someone do something about this girls legs, she cannot seem to move them. She performs well from the waist up, but she always looks unco-ordinated once we get a shot of her legs. Ronan thought it was one of her best vocals, and it still wasn’t great. Must be on her last life line soon.
Andrew Lawson – Love Is All Around
As they all said best performance by far, and Brian McFadden showed how to bring the young crooner into the 21st century. Also added some sex appeal for him. With Mitchell taken out last week, Andrew should have a clear run with the teen voters.
Luke and Joel – Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing
Not a high impact perfomance, but they are gaining a lot of fans. This song did not sit naturally with them and did show up their vocal weaknesses. I really wish make up would do something about their Aggro eyebrows.
Sally Chatfield – All By Myself
I really cannot see Sally losing the competition, unless she suddenly gets nodules on her larynx ala Cosima, however I must say she did look worried during the first half of the song. This must have been because she was losing her voice and had no idea what was going to come out. But still a better vocal performance them most tonight.
Hayley Teale – Queen of the Night
That coat she was wearing was amazing. I think each week they do a great job styling Hayley. Liked the performance and I am a fan. She reminds me of a young Vanessa Amorozi in looks and voice. I think Kyle needs to get over the fact she is gay, he keeps mentioning it.
Alytian Childs – Eye Of The Tiger
He has the advantage over everyone is that is stage craft is so much better then everyone elses. I don’t know if this is experience or talent. I think he makes the show much more interesting. But the ability to become an international rock star, I am still not convinced.
Mahogany – Say A Little Prayer
I thought Guy Sebastian really stuffed up on song choice for this group, one of the few mistakes he has made in this competition. It just dated them and made them seem even more like the corporate group they are. The song, and outfits made me think of them performing at function after a company’s annual golf day.
Bottom two predictions – India-Rose, and Mahogany.
