The X Factor – The First Elimination And It Was Not A Good One
Well my prediction that Andrew Wishart was going to be the one to be eliminated turned out to be very wrong, good to know I am starting the same way I left off last year….
The bottom two were Cleo and Jacquie. Does this prove that girls do all the voting? However no huge surprise they were there neither gave stand out performances last night.
Cleo has the most potential out of Natalie’s group but flubbed the opening of her song last night. Jacquie got caught in the cross fire of the judges and she was asked what sort of artist she wanted to be.
Cleo Howman chose to sing Chasing Pavements by Adele in the sing off tonight. She was extremely nervous and looked resigned to her fate. When she hit bum notes she rolled her eyes.
Jacqui Newland sang came out and really performed and that is what made her safe.
The question is do you want someone who has a really interesting voice and look or do you want the generic singer with the generic look. Jacquie has a good voice but it is nothing new.
Guy admitted he was going to vote for Cleo prior to the performances but he changed his mind because Jacquie performed with hunger, and voted to send her home, as did Mel B and the casting vote went to Ronan who also sent Cleo home.
Natalie Bassingthwaite needs to study her American Idol alumni better when she was comforting Cleo by saying Jennifer Hudson was the first person to be kicked off Idol. I think she came seventh.
Also why does everyone always use Jennifer Hudson as an example? There is one of her who has made a mega success after being punted off a reality singing competition show, but there have been hundreds of others who have gone back into obscurity.
Do you think the correct decision was made?
