The X Factor – Party Anthems
I must confess when I heard it was going to be party anthems on The X Factor I assumed it would be get up and dance type of music. The only act that made me want to do that was Three Wishez. That is not saying some of the other acts were not entertaining.
Audio Vixen – Valerie by The Zutons
Again their vocals were flawless, but contrary to most of the population I keep on getting the Wedding Singer vibe from this act. They are pimping the slimmer sister over the brother and Christina, however all are very talented.
The judges loved it and Mel B said their harmonies were flawless.
Declan – I Write Sins Not Tragedies by Panic At The Disco
Declan is the dark horse to take out this competition, I know it is all about Reece and Christina at the moment, however his performances are always fun to watch and his vocals are stronger then expected.
However the downside is whoever did his make up with the creepy barb wire mouth deserves to be sacked. Or the person who suggested it. He really did not need to look like a young Alice Cooper.
Jacquie – Heaven Is A Place On Earth – Belinda Carlisle
Mel B dressed her as the sixth spice girl – slutty spice. She did look good, however her vocals were really weak, not sure if this was all the choreography.
I did laugh at Nat Bass’s bitch slap at Mel B querying whether “if Belinda Carlisle is dirty rock, I don’t get it”.
Mitchell – All Summer Long by Kid Rock
This guy always looks nervous. The vocals were fine however not the most memorable performance of the night. Miss 7 wanted to vote for him because she liked the song, thankfully not because of the tatts.
Young Men Society – You Shook Me All Night Long by ACDC
This was fantastic, great song and really well done. These guys will be in for the long haul. Guy Sebastian is a strong mentor.
Reece – I Kissed A Girl by Katie Perry
There is a lot of love for this guy and he has stage presence, but I thought it was one of his weaker vocal performances. None of the judges commented on this. Just “you are star” etc etc.
Both he and the dancer enjoyed the kiss at the end. Thankfully there did not appear to be tongue.
Tyla – The Edge by Lady Gaga
Tyla’s vampy persona could get a bit repetitive in a few weeks. It started with a jazz vibe, amped up and then went back to jazz. Guy Sebastian was right when he said he thought it went nowhere.
Andrew – I Want To Break Free by Queen
If it was the loveable factor he would win. He is a sweetie with a great story to be told, can he go from peanut salesman to international superstar? Unfortunately I don’t think this is the type of person Simon Cowell wants to win the competition.
His voice is good but it is not unique.
Johnny – Down by Jay Sean
Hooray the vocals were stronger and the dancing was pretty funky, but he is in Declan and Reece’s slipstream. The girl vote will keep him in for awhile but not to win.
Three Wishez – Don’t Stop The Music by Rhianna
This was the performance that made me want to get up and dance. However the judges criticised that the girl singer was more out front and the boys were more backup singers. I note they don’t say the same thing about audio vixen.
Christina – Girls Just Want To Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper
Christina has the styling gods on her side as she looked cute and a little bit rock chick sexy. Again like Reece her she has good on stage presence but thought when she was spraying the cans of crazy foam her voice went all over the place. Not that it matters as this girl will be safe.
The judges kept on hinting at the Reece and Christina romance.
Prediction for bottom two – Jacqui and Andrew.
Who do you think will get eliminated tonight?
