The X Factor – The Top 12
The top 12 was announced and there were some bold decisions by some coaches.
First person in for the under 25 boys was Audil the life guard and Jason from the small town also made it through. Jason has a high likeability factor and he is different from the other boys but not sure he will be up to the live shows.
It was also surprising that Mel B decided not to take Matt Gresham as he has had some amazing performances. It was Josh who clinched the last spot in the top 12 for the boys.
It was no surprise that Guy Sebastian selected Samantha Jade over Danielle. She can sing what he may need to do is de-professionalise her. He also took through Justin Standly the prison choir singer, who has not seen his kids for years, which was another interesting choice. Guy must think his back story and different singing style will get him votes. The last person he took through onto Guy’s team was wedding singer Nathanial.
Nat B took through Angel Tupai, Bella Ferraro and Shiane. How the hell did Vendulka NOT make it through she has been flawless and composed throughout the whole process. She should have been in there ahead of Shiane. Shiane has a great voice but she just is too young when it comes to performing and maturity.
Ronan ended up putting through all the boy bands, Fortunate, What About Tonight and the boy super group. Not sure about that strategy as they are all similar and might split the group. Also Ronan did not have a lot of choice, the girl duo just were not strong enough and nor were the twins.
