The X Factor Australia – The Home Visits
Is it just me or is there a lack of talent in the show this year? After watching last night’s episode there were very few standout performers and all categories except the under 24 girls will be hard pressed finding three good acts for the live shows.
The only stand out in the over 24’s which Danni Minogue will be mentoring, was piano teacher Dami Im. Cat Vas who I really liked was struggling at the New York home visit and Barry Southgate will probably get chosen to go through but he does not have winner stamped on his forehead.
The groups who are mentored by Natalie Bassingthwaite only had one highlight and that was Adira Belle. The other groups were pretty shonky and Natalie told the boy band at the end that they needed to swap lead vocals to have any chance. In fact with a smart mentoring from Natalie Adira Belle might give her a win. Hopefully they will bust out an En Vogue song soon.
The under 24 boys were very thin in talent. Sure Jai Waetford is cute but far too young for this year. Taylor Henderson had a great voice singing Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder but he choked. Ronan did not look happy at all.
Redfoo is sitting with the winner in his under 24 girls. He has Vendulka, also the talented Joelle and I am not a huge Georgina Mastin fan as she is too inconsistent but her rendition of a Katie Perry number was good. Though powerhouse singer Riv Ngwenya might be a more sensible choice.
Who do you think should go to the live shows?
