So everyone zoned into what was the most nail-biting part of the X-Factor quarter, the judges houses, and for me I got 2 out of 3 contestants in every category!
What you must remember is that the judges all have different meanings and priority in finding that “star in the making” so as much as we all screamed and shouted at our screens last night, I actually am not surprised by their choices, except the girls-maybe!
Simon and the groups.
FYD– very expected for me. They deliver in all three areas of becoming a star- Singing, Dancing and Appearance Ability- as in the words of Mr Cowell and in my opinion, a very good choice!
Belle Amie– I was very impressed with their FIRST and only audition and you could hear that they practised as it did pay off- well done girls!
New Direction– Ok so the voices and the harmonies are there in the bunch of puberty busting good lookers. However I think maybe 1 or 2 could disappear and we wouldn’t notice. On the whole I would have gone with Twem for the entertainment aspect but Simon is Cowell and can’t help be smug with his “know it all” aura
Cheryl and the Girls
Rebecca Ferguson– A 2010 Etta James in the making! Sprinkle of Leona’s innocent magic has created a loveable character that I hope flourishes into the potential she has that could carry her all the way…
Cher Lloyd– I know everyone did not expect this, and for me I thought it would have been a toss-up between Gamu, Cher and Kate. However you cannot deny the “little sister” bond between these two, and for Cheryl I feel that Cher could become a personal project to reboost both of them… watch this space!
Katie Wassiel– The contemporary new Madonna, Gwen Stefani also known as Katie has arrived! Apart from the drama that you should expect to see on a regular basis, she offers a unique sound and appearance that I hope everyone will begin to warm too… that’s if you want to though!
Dannii and the Boys
Matt Cardle– OMG! So happy for this amazing and most beautiful voice! Matt totally deserves this and my cards are on him and Rebecca making it to the Top 2, yep I said it!
Aaiden– His first audition highlighted that he had the whole package, and songs after only showed Danni and the others that he was here to stay. Well played!
Nicolo– A very good-looking Diva that is aware that when he gets to the live shows he could become a love him or hate him artist his voice is cool, however will that be enough? Thank you to Danni and her abstract choices lol!
Louis and the Groups
Mary– Who doesn’t love her? I hope she has a pinch of the infamous Susan Boyle’s success as it would only fulfill her dream. i think of her first audition and all I get is goosebumps. We Love you Mary! xx
Storm Lee-You know what, I was a little bit hard on the guy, but you have to admit that he can belt and hold a few notes! Good on Louis for relighting his fire
John– What can I say, he has it all and if he is able to go with reviving the old skool classics, John could be the one to put together a whole new target audience who also love similar music
So that’s it. It now will be up to us, and for me I am not the one to always vote but this being the last of the UK X-Factor I think we all will have to hold on to our seats, as the ride will keep us stunned right to the end! xx
