The X Factor – The Final Four – Fight It Out For The Finale
There were allegations in Woman’s Day this week that The Collective have already got The X Factor sewn up, and it looks like they have.
To be fair they probably should win however they have had a lot of help. Not only have they had far more publicity than than the other acts but they have also been in the lucky last spot three times, and tonight was one of them.
Also to note that I am a hypocrite I did write a blog post saying it was difficult for groups to win these competitions, The Collective have clearly gotten over those obstacles.
Also no surprise that Jason was given the first spot in the show on a night they had to sing two songs. They must be desperately hoping he does not make it to the final next week. After his first song, Life Is A Highway, the judges were positive about him but mentioned nothing about his vocals. When they were praising him it was all about his journey and transformation. His second song of the evening, Leanne Rimes’s How Do I Live Without You? , did not hit great heights either.
Conversely Samantha Jade is peaking at the right time of the competition with her two songs probably her best of the series. The Rhianna song was the best performance of the episode with a powerful vocal performance.Does she have the fan base to push her through to next week? Hopefully.
Show favourite Bella Ferraro was a bit shaky on both her songs but particularly her first one Bulletproof. – Guy thought it looked challenging and applauded her for giving it a go. Mel B thought her voice is better than that and did not think it was very Bella. Once Mel B was critical Guy jumped back in to be a bit more terse. Nat B had to sit there and listen to them bitch about how bad the song choice was.
She did manage to redeem herself a bit in the Kate Miller Heidke song Last Day On Earth however Guy thought she struggled with the high notes. She is in definite danger of going home tomorrow.
The Collective sang both their songs well and showed why they should win. What was amusing in their first song Apologise, the boy band member who sang a solo at the beginning has barely been sighted before.
One of the judges will lose a singer tomorrow night and won’t have an act in the finale. Jason should be the one t go but he has never hit the bottom two, so chances are it will be Bella who will be eliminated.
Who would you like to see in The X Factor finale next week?
