X Factor 2012
Week 3 results
After judges introductions and the satin shimmer of dresswear from the ladies, no patch on Cheryl/Dannii Minogue’s style wars, despite Tulisa and Nicole’s attempts.
Ella tough start. Ryan over trying, Kye good. Jade strong , The groups all sing together one line to protect all flaws in union J and District 3. James pleasing. MK1 fair. Jahmene handled a couple of lines OK, though still anxious. Christopher sang confidently as Lucy looked naked without her guitar. That’s why she needs to find her feet without it in the group song.
Labrinth feat. Emeli Sande
Beneath Your Beautiful
With a smooth, crisp sound from the 88 keys and duet with Emelie Sande, Labyrinth provided another corker of a tune. Sande was equally important to add perfect tone together with a stunning backdrop of a snowflake lavalamp on screen staging.
Asking judges who faced danger zone, Gary and Louis agreed Jade may suffer from her vocal difficulties due to illness. Nicole said Christopher Maloney as Tulisa abstained in another pointless decision having her as a judge who cannot give a decision.
Dermot then introduced JLS with their new single. Neglecting to announce their “new single” title…
Hottest Girl in the World
Homegrown band JLS returned to perform a good stage presence to show how it is done with style. When quizzed Aston and his bandmates felt their favourite act so far was James Arthur.
Announced in no particular order who made it through to next week were – Union J, Ella, James, Rylan, Christopher, Jahmene, District3, Lucy, Jade.
Everyone focused on protecting Christopher, favourite to leave, meaning they forgot about Kye also. Both should have made it through but it is clear, many are not voting in the overs group which therefore now deems the show pointless and childish as X Factor have lost the elder market. Seeing mature people with talent leave week in week out shows that X Factor’s audience, based on teens alone, means there is no place for the show anymore.
Welcome back the Mickey Mouse club!
The sing off
MK1 Vs Kye Sones
The man who can’t be moved – The Script
Fair but pitchy. Very off in vocals together after the rap segment. Over singing one another and didn’t work together as they had hoped.
I can’t make you love me – Adele
Battling the flu, not revealed in his Saturday show as a cheap method to remain in the show, Kye gave a smooth, charismatic and beautiful tone to his vocals from the offset showing what a singing star he is. No one knew of the flu, because he still sounded decent with it. Now that’s talent in abundance.
Louis sending home Kye. He managed to say this very quick this time.
Gary – one of the best sing offs in the show. Sending home MK1.
Now the real votes once more. Nicole votes to send home MK1 based on sing off performance.
Tulisa – MK1 reminded me of NDubz, connected with you, Kye amazing performance. NDubz song, “if I don’t stick up for my roots.” Opts to send home Kye in another travesty of misjustice. Voting on a personal feeling once more and not a professional vote highlights how inept the juvenile Constostavlos is on the panel that is supposed to vote based on singing not feeling. Has no place on the show, and highly devalues it.
Deadlock comes the THIRD week running.
Act with the fewest votes leaving the contest is MK1. They were on borrowed time, as are all of Louis acts.
