The X Factor – The Penultimate Episode – The Final Three Sing
The final three sang tonight with the hope that their voice and their fans would get them over the line.
You wonder if fans are set on the one singer or whether the performances tonight by Samantha Jade, Jason or The Collective will tempt the viewer to vote for them?
It was home visits time and it did confirm there was smoke and mirrors with Samantha Jade’s and Jason’s back story (see previous blog post here). Jason went to Albert the little town of twelve where they insinuates he lives, and then he is at his parents house which is definitely not in Albert!
Again Samantha Jade went to visit the factory where she worked in Perth. Yes her father was there as he owns it however they never told the viewer this. Also just in case the viewer had realised that they made sure they told and showed us the house where she and her family currently live and saying how small it was!
It is all rather amusing, but shows how a back story is so important to the producers of the show and the contestants.
Jason’s winners single was surprisingly good, as was Samantha Jade’s however it did remind me a bit of a Ricki-Lee number. The Collective’s was OK but suspect they are aiming it at a much younger demographic.
All singers performed well tonight, Jason did his usually pop/country lite schtick I am not seeing an international artist there but he does have an engaging personality.
Samantha Jade sang well and could be the favourite to take out this year’s title as she is peaking at the right time. Whereas the other hot favourite to win is The Collective but they have plateaued in the last couple of weeks.
Which performances did you enjoy? And who do you think will win?
The X Factor Finale on Tuesday night at 7.30pm.
