The X Factor – The Final Performance Show
It is ironic that Guy Sebastian who was the best mentor of the season, and he did not have one act in the season final. No groups made it.
Tonight is the penultimate show of what may be the only season of The X Factor take 2. Where it was the last time Andrew, Sally and Altiyan had their last chance to showcase their talent to get the viewers to vote for him.
A few thoughts on the final:
- Natalie Imbruglia looked stunning and very much like Rita Hayworth in her prime also that special glow could be due to her dating Justin Hemmes;
- Thankfully Altiyan did not dry hump Kirk Pengilly’s leg when he was singing with him;
- When Andrew went back to his high school, Kyle to the opportunity to grope a school girl, Andrew’s sister;
- I am glad Ronan understands Altiyan as I have no idea what he is saying.
Also here are my thoughts on the performances:
Sally Chatfield did the Queen song which was the one she picked as being her best performance and again she rocked it.
Andrew Lawson was not a train wreck with the James Blunt song, Beautiful. In fact his voice suited it perfectly.
Altiyan Child sang the winner single which I think was called “Somewhere In The World Tonight”. He did a good rendition of a really dull song.
Sally sang her audition song it was great, but Natalie it was “note perfect”. Um no it was not.
Andrew Lawson did Heartache Tonight and it was as dull as it was the first time he sang it. But then he probably did not have a lot of choice as he has had some really dud songs. Crocodile Rock and Uptown Girl to name a few.
Does anyone else think it is time for INXS to retire? I would have thought they had made enough cash. It was a no brainer that Altiyan would do a duet with them. Kyle pointed out that the first verse had been made up as Altiyan had forgotten the words.
Andrew sang Fly Me To The Moon his audition song which was one of his better songs of the evening. But even rising up in a moon still did not give him a moment.
Sally got to do a duet with Jay K from Jaromiquie it was good, but she was overshadowed by him, and the song didn’t really suit her voice.
Altiyan – Sex Is On Fire which was his audition song, was probably his best performance of the night.
Andrew Lawson tanked it with his winner’s single. Kyle had a point when he said the single was more suited to a singer with a “bigger” voice. Also he hinted he thought the song was shite. Andrew did have a get me out of here now look on his face as he was singing it.
