X Factor UK 2012 The Final: Part Two

X Factor UK 2012

The Final: Part Two

xf 12 nicole jahmene james final

X Factor finalists perform one last time. X Factor shunted Christopher Maloney from it’s stage and wasn’t in the show after they gave him one line to sing. Maloney, who won all shows until week eight of ten, came third in the final.

Union J started dismally. Carolynne Poole, bit off. Melanie Masson a cracker once again. Yeahhhhhhhhhh! Jade provided good musky tone. Ella produced sound but no one was shown. Kye Sones and two babes. District3 terrible. Union J again. Overkill. Ella warble. Rylan party theatrics in a sleigh and catastrophic sound with sparkly fur coat. No singing whatsoever. Backing singers strong. Other acts mime along, as does headbobbing Tulisa. District3 and Union J back again. Then girls and Rylan and Kye. Ella ending off. James and Jahmene enter and end with traditional scream.

Please no more.

Rio Ferdinand alert. Oh dear.

Songs of the series (which weren’t many) were going to be the starting premise for the show.

Jahmene Douglas

Angels – Robbie Williams

jahmene angel 12

Acapella with elevated box staging. All linger and easy talking through song. Rather timid performance once more. Still extremely fragile. Lingering yell once more, that distorts melodic composition. Still all over the place, hasn’t found placement of tone, and all a show off nothing song.

Louis said of Douglas “Jahmene you’re in the final. You’re a fantastic role model. You move me because you got so much soul. You’re an incredible role model. Please vote for Jahmene I want him to win.”

Tulisa supported with praise “Outtuve all the songs, I’m happy you chose that one. One of my fav’rots from you. Congardulations.”

 Gary think it’s been quite tough. Been in too comps battling with past and fighting for your future. Dignity and grace. Another stunning night for you.

Once again teary Nicole said of her baby “I gotta keep it together. You bring spirit and hope to this show I feel safe. Greatest love of all. Your my greatest role model. Like a beacon of light.”

Dermot asked Louis why he praised someone out of his category for once. Louis added once again “I want him to win.”

Dermot’s lame joke telling us we can keep Scherzinger from Barack Obama for Louis Walsh and cash was plain daft. Britain doesn’t want either kept.

James Arthur

Let’s Get It on – Marvin Gaye

james arthur nicole romance 12

More of a dubstep bass theme ruined it instantly. His vocals was instantly too off from the style of aiming to be a grimy star, then shifting his sound back to his ‘self’ vocal that he has usually sang in over the weeks prior. Schmoozing Tulisa with a kiss making his way to the stage, take pauses in between seemingly lost and filling time with lack of confidence  Still needs to climb massive mountain in that respect. Ended with a bevvy of beauties surrounding him. Was bit simple and safe.

Louis – Ready-made artist. Original, honest. Nicole you’ve been best mentor ever in final.

Tulisa – “I know I’ve said it a million times over the live shows that you’re an artist, you take songs and make them your own. Feel like were at James Arthur concert. You take untouchable classics and make them your own. You are an artist James Arthur.”

Gary “You’ll go off and get developed. You don’t need that you’re ready. Ready to download your album right away.”

Nicole – “I’m humbled and feel so blessed to work with you.”

Dermy tells us of two competitions going on, and informs the public of the shady behaviour of the ego manic panel of judges aiming to secure a win over the course of the show, then highlighting Nicole’s two acts in final success. We then saw a clip of the journey from the “Mighty Mentors.”

No we are treated to the civil servant auditionee who clearly saw the future before us all. “It was that f***ing Tu-liss-ia” Give that man an OBE!

Louis got two lapdances from Robbie (Williams) and Lorna Bliss, the Britney double, remebered by c’est moi on BBC show The one and only.

Gary and Tulisa’s explosive nature to the minor comments. Nicole’s dictation of unscribeable words formed in her alien language.

X Factor chose to flaunt its dwindling reputation once more with Leona Lewis returning from the ghost archive, likeable loser Olly Murs, short of the top boyband JLS and the first winners as a group thanks to in house bullying lies Little Mix. Mini Cheryl Cole Cher Lloyd even featured. The winners Joe McElderry and Matt Cardle were invisible to all of mankind. They do NOT exist.

Here they come….

One Direction

Kiss You

 one direction xf final 12

The spritely boys started with an Atari themed computer game. Zayn Malik’s start had an audio problem, his mic wasn’t on. Whoops! Again? But, but, sound came out of the stereo when his mic was off.

It was rather weak and lazy and the sound when going live for a portion of song was not continually working. Either that or they simply can’t sing. Miming galore, the boys then ran into the audience like maniacs. Liam check his earpiece and then they all rush back to the stage. Okay, then… Yo –yoing back and forth clueless and mic probs, it was then ‘Game Over.’ Goodness… That was tough.

dave cam xfactor

Hypocritical Prime Minister David Cameron gets in on the act, mentioning “Jahmazing” to spawner Nicole.

If it wasn’t bad enough, David Cameron got in on the act. Turning on the Crimbo lights with the kiddies around for the charity Together with short lives.

Chancellor won’t take the VAT off the single. Let’s all praise George and Dave.

Emeli Sande

Clowns

em sande xf final

A perfect piano position with pitch perfection sound. Sande looked a glamourous, gorgeous superstar among the violet lava lamp TV screen. It was a powerful, sweet and charismatic outing with mass star appeal. Sheer perfection.

The winner‘s singles performed, which were recorded months ago, are up next.

rio ferdinand audience fottoie final xf

The local soccer stars were in the arena as Manchester City and Manchester United squads were shown. Quizzed about Rylan and James, Rio Ferdinand and the other footie stars were thanked for being INVITED. They also chose to show up. Which one is with WAG Tulisa?

Jahmene Douglas

Let It Be

JAHMANE FINAL

That’s right, the outdated, slow classic that should not be given an overhaul would be Jahmene’s winner’s single if he wins tonight. Just when you thought the hysteria around the show couldn’t be any more stereotypical, cheap or tedious, X Factor pulls it right out of the bag. This is just one of many reasons viewers are fed up with.

Filled with a gospel choir backing him up and screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeches of outburst to a musical composition of 88 keys and tender moments destroyed with overkill of yells and thumping bass in the wrong places with an intolerable sound was outlandish.

Repetitive Louis began “What more can I say? You’ve got so much soul, and passion. People at home I wanna change this guy’s life. I want him to win the X Factor, please vote!” Walsh yells in another attempt to rally votes.

Tulisa was pleased. “I am so happy you’re in final. Couldn’t be two better people in the final. Sang your little heart out. Deserve to be here.”

Gary said “Really simple actually. You have an unbelievable voice and talent. All you gotta do is sing the song and make people feel something.”

Nicole ended “Thank you so much for that honest beautiful performance most relaxed you’ve ever been. That was a jahmazing shamoment. You’re greatest blessing in this show for me.”

James Arthur

Impossible

JAMES ARTHUR IMPOSSIBLE

James sang without his guitar; however is playing guitar in his record. Absolutely laughable. In order to protect his image of constant guitar, it features highly in his performance. Terrible production. As for the sound, was a lot of bass and vocals felt off with the kick in, seeming lost at points. Still isn’t fully ready in the limelight. Needs careful handling. Though playing safe and easy won’t sell records. After a slow and vocal rendition, the shouting came at extreme volume, which destroyed the whole atmosphere of the song and its drive. Backing track with the guitar outdid Arthur on stage. Was all over the place.

Louis “you’re both winners with me.”

Mundane Tulisa spoke “I know you gunna understand what I say when I say this. From moment I saw you, I got you. I get you. We’re the same people. You know wot I mean? And you have been to the depths in life. The deep dark depths, you came back out and you came back out. You are an inspirer. People this is your last chance to pick up, and vote, for James, Arthur!”

Gary offered realism “You came to this competition as an artist. Proud on stage tonight. You know best.”

Cliché to the stars Nicole said “You’ve proven anything is possible. Hunny, your life is never gunna be the same after this.”

Arthur needs a lot of fine tweaking, the sort that X Factor chiefs wanted but couldn’t figure out how to do because it was biased in how to approach.

Rihanna

Stay/We Found Love feat. Calvin Harris

rihanna xf final 12 white

She’s back. All of them were. Rihanna always has star appeal, however this was a rather meek outing per se. A ballad which was a tad cheap, easy and half hearted, still sang well, but didn’t fully enthuse people as it should have. It was all very ‘nice’ wasn’t it? Good for her. Her attire was classy and striking of a white laced Egyptian goddess. She then got the crowd going with her dance hit We Found Love.

rihanna xf final 12 sparks

With just over thirty minutes left to crown the winner, we now hope Louis Walsh can figure out how to bring the vote to deadlock again.

Winning result

cd factory

While the manufactured production line of production “hot off the press” CD’s (bit old now, those things) of the winner’s single not available anymore, and no sight of washed up TV presenters shamelessly telling us to buy it by holding up the album artwork of one word in black boring font and one picture of artist just standing there doing nothing exciting, the result loomed.

The winner is…

Silence beckons. Tension mounts. Suspense continues.

James Arthur!

james arthur tats

Matt Cardle version two was crowned. James Arthur has won the show. Nicole was ecstatic. Once again, it was all about her in James bask of glory. Overcoming hardship, the ugly duckling into sweet swan song story delivered us a new duckie for the future to rinse our water of the back of. It was set in stone from the beginning shows. This is what X Factor wanted, as did Mr. Cowell.

matt cardle blue mic

Singing sensation, Matt Cardle

We arn’t without praise for James, but we keep reality real. He will struggle if not careful thought out. At this time, and on X Factor performances, he was still abundant in showing his true potential. All safe and no qualities of interest outside of a few “off the hype” singles could cost overall reputation. Steve Brokestein, sorry Brookstein, is written among James’ stars if handle wrongly. After the first few singles, fans will want to be defiant now, as always, though after the bubble bursts, no one has thought on how to preserve their longevity.

Well done James, you weren’t the worst star on the show, but not the best on performance and heightened sympathy to derail the real winner, Christopher Maloney.

We’ll have one last X Factor post coming next week. It will be the one Simon Cowell should read. It’s how to sort this whole mess out. You really should take a meeting in London over January 2013. What do you have to lose? 5- 10 mins or millions of viewers? This isn’t an ego trip, but, who was the only person to see James Vs Ella coming?

All profits from the single will go to the charity for children, Together with Short Lives.

james arthur win all on stage 12

All the acts then showered James on stage with adoration for his victory. Not exactly Leona Lewis, but, congrats! People just couldn’t bear the sympathy and hypocrisy stories this year.

Thank god it’s over, for now. It was the toughest watch possible.

X Factor UK 2012: Week 8 Results

X Factor UK 2012:

Week 8 Results

Alliance remains.

Group song

Viva La Vida  – Coldplay

James Arthur starts fair but still standard. Whining Rylan, Jah-diva-mene, Maloney getting into mood with good note. Jahmene walking on with mime of song seemingly uninterested. Lazy. Union J harmonies all over and off. Quiff guy bad, George incapable. The other one sings. Jahmene nothing words. Ooooohhhh moans of Uinon J, joined by Rylan and James, Union J add worse tone to it, to ruin. James attempts to save it, as song given is more his style. Funny that, huh?

Bruno Mars

Locked out of Heaven

Prince and the Revolution meets Blues Brothers in Motown era.

A dazzling jazzy blues number with a cool RnB tone. Energetic band, charismatic vocals and proof of a real singer without over doing it vocally. Less is more. Great dance moves too with a sway and stylistic swag on.

Tulisa is not singing as scheduled last week. X Factor could be sued for false advertising if there aren’t careful, though it felt Tulisa would be blown out of the water up alongside Rihanna or Bruno.

Asked who impressed, of the other acts as judges usually asked are to answer in an ‘unspoken word’ of knowing format, Louis Walsh entered a biased approach. “Union J improved” he blared at high volume. He added “Weird dancers of Fernando” in relation to Christopher Maloney’s performance in a pre-determined attack once more. Parrot puppet Tulisa added he favourite was James also stating “Fernando creepy” after claiming it “wasn’t her style” to cruelly defame and abuse someone personally. Gary Barlow gave a clear, consie answer “Rylan” as Nicole opted to select her own once more ”James Arthur was ***** Buddha or butter? Computer nor English language can compute.

Rihanna

Diamonds

Water raining, stream around, keeping Ri-Ri dry-dry. Beaming sun strobe lights and mist. A real artist on the stage.All are inferior. Funny how the judges disliked Chris Maloney’s performance, yet some similarities in staging were apparent. Yet all judges cheered for the RnB popster Rihanna, whose vocals infused with performance can hardly be challenged.

The Results

In “no particular order” the votes to reveal the first act saved and returning next week is – James, Christopher and Jahmene.

Union J Vs Rylan

Hacks sucking up to the show to gain popular press attention for their own egos saw once more the Antichrist of ‘journalism’ running amock of the profession as celebrity gossip gabber Dan Wooton believes Union J were better vocalists than Chris Maloney. Whether you like em or not, Maloney is certainly better than Union J and Rylan. Many other ‘downgraded’ forms of media are doing the same, proving all puppets and not an actual “journalist.” Hire a real one. I’m right here.

Come on, you odious hack! Union J are terrible. Shows how a random person built on fandom blagged his way into the ‘field’ and still has no journalistic intent nor charisma.

Rylan Clark

Wires – Athlete

Rylan works the stage and walks around whilst giving a sweet kiss to Gary. High notes terrible. Can’t reach them so has to breathily sing vocals. It was an improvement for Rylan in grounds of singing yet was credible of a Week 1 performance. He had slick hair.

Union J

Run – Snow Patrol

Sympathy song bearing the lines “do we have to go?” from the pupping cutie eyes.

The quiff guy singing all the time as lead is wrong choice. His look, the look of desperation and pity on his blank face is dreadful. The two bookends on the end Jaymi and the other one can actually carry the group if there was actual direction on this group, but they have Louis Walsh along for the ride, as well as being utterly clueless among themselves to figure out what to do. The guy in middle killing everything with his over indulgent, egotistical, assumptive bighead attitude acting as the “leader” of the group marring all progress possible. Learn to take a back seat or leave.

Nicole said it was “passionate and emotional” though opted to send home Union J.

Louis Walsh said of Rylan “fantastic guy, great fun, role model, performer. Amazing career” though felt in the sing off “the boys totally won” thus sending home Rylan. He said that quite quickly didn’t he?

Gary added “great sing off and last night” Union J were the “band everyone wants to sign” (hardly.) Rylan had “best vocal performance (and was his) best song choice.” Among the great fun and “none personal, in good fun” honest Barlow sent home Rylan.

Tulisa had the final vote. With no acts of her own, she spoke of the group, mentored by friend Louis Walsh. “Union J – four amazing lads on and off stage. Ryland you’ve entertained. Admire your strength while having to put up with what you’ve had to in this competition.” The noble Constostavlos decided her vote on “most potential to sell records. Pains me to say, act sending home is Rylan.”

Tulisa is fighting for her job, manages to praise non-bullying methods and managed to correctly say Rylan after speaking Ryland in the same sentences together.

Rylan officially called time on his X Factor stint. Upon leaving he had this to say of his time in the competition “Feels so right, had a massive seven weeks.” His highlight came at judges houses. Singing Emeli Sande’s hit Read All About It with all the finalists.

On sister show following the results, Nicole Sherzinger said it was “Not my style to put anyone else down in this competition as mentioned last week by Tulisa” in response to a caller on other contestants in the competition judges felt shouldn’t be there. This of course is the same Tulisa who has done so to Christopher Maloney at full force last week in her upset at controversial decision of Ella leaving to low votes and having her puppet string pulled by producers and Simon Cowell to purposely insult and victimise Maloney on stage, to which she complied. Sherzinger, who has constantly mentioned “cheese” to subtly attack Maloney and vamp it up towards the last few weeks as per Cowell’s request along with bitchy Louis Walsh, who attempted to insinuate and out Maloney’s sexual orientation on television in a derogatory manner broke their integrity foremost. Nicole said yes without saying yes.

Gagging his mate, Si.

One thing is certain. The judges have forgotten what their role on the show is, and the levels of abuse have driven countless viewers away as a result. If judges cannot do exactly that and use the show to bully based on their own preferences than being a professional, to which Gary Barlow has been, then the show is a false façade that needs to be highly investigated by regulators and bullying groups, as well as possibly fined and even removed from television altogether. Should we condone abusive programmes specifically designed to run a production to mentally abuse members of the public?

Childish Tulisa barked “No!” after a caller asked if Gary would complement Christopher if he was not his mentor. Everyone knew this was an inaccurate truth from the 24 year old girl on the panel. Tulisa did the exact, ‘pretend I didn’t hear you can you repeat the question’ moment to create bad tension with the public in a feeble attempt to manipulate their votes. She heard very clearly again.

Barlow added the “public already answered” when explaining they selected the people’s vote into the show.

Louis, who glanced down, and many already know anyway, the judges have the question written down, on their cue cards in front of them which Tulisa checked beforehand.

Tulisa then chose to laugh and point at Gary with Louis when his back was turned. Children on a panel, low voters, and low audience ratings. X Factor wonders why it is in such chaos? The fact they allowed that to go out, without a professional production is just shambolic.

Got a cupcake, somewhere, presumably.

Ella Henderson later called in as Tulisa did some promoting on TV. No Product Placement endorsement was acknowledged. Ella was aksed who she thought the competition was between. “Chris and James” she said, as Tulisa snubbed that comment with attitude. Ella soon retracted her speech when realising a frosty atmosphere from the studio production. She wasn’t supposed to say that name…

Tulisa and Ella continued they had “missed our girly chats. Cupcake.”

Tons of plugs were mentioned at Olly Murs with his new single last week reaching number one in the charts. Olly cannot fathom why he isn’t nominated for BRIT Awards’ Best Male for 2013. We’ll give you more detail later.

Until then, the show is further into chaos with its de-humanising and victimised bullying of one star, as Cowell is “desperate” for a male to win so he can have a new ‘Matt Cardle’  who has been sent to the realms of obscurity since a new record label had esteemed faith in him. He has, and remains the only male to remain strong with a career out of X Factor and stands tall among the charts.

X Factor UK 2012 Week 4: Fag Ash Frenzy!

X Factor UK 2012

Week 4: Fag Ash Frenzy!

Dermot gave a spooky entrance as the show soon started. Robbie Williams was in the same hotel, per chance, and gave the acts some tips as a guest mentor testing the water for the panel by Cowell next year.

Kye Sones

Let Me Entertain You – Robbie Williams

Opening the show with a ”never covered before” as a Robbie only song, Kye, looking very much a star with hair and make-up like a breath of fresh air, sang in unison able to hit the high notes belting out the tune powerfully and maintained tone of the original song, while adding a new spin on the track with his own style. Being in Robbie’s shadow will always be compared initially, though this performance was showing of Kye only and not one thought of Robbie’s version rang through until afterwards, if at all, which is a rare feat for a performer to do, especially early on in the series.

A unique quality to a star singer and performer with potential X Factor. Class act. People still need to vote for him, though, as his age group might not necessarily be remembered in the wake of untalented ‘competition.’

Louis – “not sure” ? Of what? No explanation.

Tulisa – Even better. Is that it?

Dermot O’Leary would ask Louis “what do you mean?” LW – good, but something missing. Louis, booed by audience, said there was no “X Factor”, seen as another attempt to sabotage rival acts outshining his to leave after witnessing potential competition.

Union J

Sweet Dream – Beyonce

No Direction, look at the eyes.

Stood on a car for no apparent reason, once again in a Louis Walsh no direction centrepiece, it failed to mask Union J’s inadequate vocals, where half weren’t even trying to sing, carelessly. Attempting another song way too big for them and in a dynamic that was not a group song, reliant on one word alone, as always, and making sure teen females were placed at the front row pit so they could cheaply touch girls hands like last week, which also detracted from performance, was terrible. Disconnected. You won’t get with them girls, plus George is dating Ella.

Tulisa – up your game, two weeks improvement, easy.

GB – seen it before. Change it up.

NS – absolute perfection. Understatement of the week to protect her own acts and favour to Louis saving Rylan. Harmony and energy we asked, and they gave, she added. It is hard to fathom that Nicole, a singer and a group member makes outlandish claims as such.  They never moved with energy, they walked around minimally, as with their vocals on the pre-recorded studio sound system in rehearsals.

Louis Walsh – I believe your next group and that’s it. A shock come when you leave X Factor bubble and it all goes to pot. Ahh Louis, always a Simon Cowell shadow two years late missing the boat.

Rylan Clark

Toxic – Britney Spears/ Horny – Hot ‘n’ Juicy feat Mousse T/ Poison – Nicole Sherzinger

Rylan, with a Vajazzle on his face

Kylie and Robbie gave their celebrity endorsements.. X Factor’s goal to get exposure from celebs to boost the show profile through de-humanising Rylan had its moment.

Nicole as Deetah von tease in leather bodice surprised Rylan and all the boys at his birthday bash. The new Sinitta arrives. She looked like a curb crawler from Stringfellows or Spearmint Rhino. No surprise she snogged Chris Brown months ago, when still with F1 racer Lewis Hamilton. Rihanna is supposedly back with Brown.

Rylan came down on an elevated platform as the glass ceiling. Nice try at subtle messages Nicole.

Ignoring any performance vocally halfway through lost the song, then turned into ‘horny.’ Tarts. No reaction. Lifted on stage. Unleashed Poison unto us, then touching Gary. Rylan’s vocals were soon tired. Needed female backing dancer to sing for him.

Welcome into the asylum. Mash up every week highlights deep inaccuracies that can’t be erased.

LW said Rylan reminded him of fashion designer “a young Jean Paul Goutier” on a singing stage. Party girl Tulisa felt it was “like Mahiki on a Wednesday night” and said he tried to “deliver to best of your ability.” No ability involved.

GB – Giving an honest critique. Not worse than last week. Music loud, couldn’t here sing. Dancing good. Is that enough?

Over sexual mentor Nicole added – little devil, you’re horny, were going to bed tonight. Favourite performance so far. Beautiful job. Slipped in a “Team Robbie” for exposure comment too. What a crawler.

Ella Henderson

Bring Me To Life – Evanescence

One of my favourite tracks. Bit off in vocals to begin. Slow/low pitch to rise up with. Too big a song despite effort to shake it up. Needed much more of a song to project her quality capabilities to audience. It was another safe, stand and sing performance with a cute, dainty outlook. It was lacking of an “X Factor” quality. Holding back won’t cement a future.

Gary mentioned about using her age as a bargain tool in previsous weeks used by Tulisa, saying “you an adult competing with adults, using 16 is disrespectful” while ending she had a “good chance” to go further.

NS – least favourite performance. Wrong Key. Chorus is epic, (felt) anticlimactic. High note at end. Finally Nicole speaks a minor piece of sense.

LW – take a chance. Versatile.

TC – glad you had fun. It’s Halloween. Different from original makes songs your own. (It didn’t it was off) so therefore wasn’t making it her own, juvenile Contostavlos comments, exposing her piffle inadequacies with repetitive claims of other judges and same words each week.

Ella needs to take risks. She’ll be leaving the show in a few weeks if not.

Christopher Maloney

(I Just) Died in your arms tonight – Cutting Crew

Looked like a star for first time in attire. Song vocals were strong. Not lively enough for young audience and current projection will be his possible downfall. Tulisa evil eye mid performance. Wait for her comments 😮

NS – fun. Stance and rocking moves. Good jobs on vocals.

LW – looking for future recording star. Claiming it was like Panto, reminded him of Tony Christie. Bitchy Walsh strikes again. Maloney was mature in the abusive comments hurled subtly. Louis Walsh’s pantoMIME continues every week.

TC – I want tostop blaming you and go to your mentor. How many 80s classics are you going to let him destroy Tulisa barked when attacking Gary.

So, Tulisa doesn’t want to be rude to Christopher, then tells him through Gary with her outburst that Maloney is “destroying” songs. That’s not being rude to the artist as he waits on stage after this catty judge dominance is over, standing there like a sap to the drama of a child?

It’s not fair to say offensive comments Tulisa added. Again, juvenile behaviour on the panel. Tulisa also does the same thing with her acts. Talk about double standard. Think before you speak? But, she cannot, because she is, a child.

#ChristopherMaloney looks and sounds like a star, but teen audience will ruin the voting process. Shame on talent @GBarlowOfficial #XFactor

District3

Every Breath you take – Sting/ Neyo – Monster

Clockwork orange inspired in their costumes, District3, who may not be aware that the film has a sexual abuse connotation with the image, and in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal AND the over sexualisation of females, which even Louis Walsh and other ‘grown-ups’ on X Factor are aware of, dressed them in the three rapist costumes.

Also given to us as an anonymous tip off, though unconfirmed and currently “alleged” of Dan’s self-harming issues the three looked like extras on set.

Auto tune exposed from mic pull away again. Not really singing. Break into ‘Monster’ mash up. Why? It did nothing for the song. All about antics jumping around on stage. One word reliance. Since you gone then bellowed. A third mash up? If you need three songs in one, you detract from the song, have no actual level of tone and ruin every form of credibility you hope to achieve, and the Clockwork Orange suits had nothing to do with the song.

TC – On point. This isn’t a dance show, luv. Cor, its wafting in here… (passes ashtray)

GB – fed up of mash up’s. Backward.

NS- agree with Gary. Harmonies. Monster – wrong key. What is the costume about?

LW – admitted they were “not as good” as last week. Potential is fantastic. Give them a chance plea.

Start and finish a song. No risk.

One of the group added – “appreciate your comments” then adding it was a “monster mash-up, so…” in an unappreciative speech of disregard.  Adolescent arrogance of the youth today. This is the problem. Mass disrespect.

Jahmene Douglas

Killing Me Softly – The Fugees

Last saturday was emotional, Jahmene squeaked. Emotionally drained, he confessed. Not enough in the tank.

Killing me softly was appropriate. Timid every week. No star quality as fretting little boy begging for sympathy votes with his shy demeanour. The act is already outdated. When is he actually going to sing? Warble, Warble, Warble… A nothing song. Forgettable. Meek. Nothing exceptional. Expects to be carried.

LW – World class. (again)

TC- Little muffin. Gunna call you the Man who can’t be moved. She said. Donating her “Urban roots” to a new act this week, Tulisa reminder band MK1, voted off last week sang that very song in the sing off, see Week 3 results in previous post. Contostavlos – Can’t find one negative critique added. Hmm..

GB – Simple and effortless. Gorgeous. Talked about American singers being great, then added Jahmene could add contrast to them in competition. Might work in USA but not UK. Shouldn’t that also be your focus?

American mentor Nicole sexpest added – understated. Serving his musical appetite, Nic wanted him to  “Taste, feel, enjoy, and have meaning” in his culinary musical serving. Hire Gordon Ramsey instead. “Everyone will talk about it” she believed. Nope. Back to clouded and deluded again.

Jade Ellis

No Lucy’s were harmed in the making of this statement.

Tulisa introduced her act with a public statement as if someone had died, or was gravely ill.

“Lucy I’m thinking of you, in my thoughts and get well soon.” Lucy Spraggan received a “bye” (might be a bigger bye soon) to next week. She wasn’t dead or anything, just vocally damaged, which viewers felt was distasteful. She should have either been thrown out, or left, they felt. Feeling the show has lost its core motives, and unknowing what to do in any crisis after it only seems to seek mainstream bright lights attention and no bad publicity living in a happy bubble of exposing others and not being caught in the sparked flames of contradiction, the answer is very clear.

She should not have performed and still been up for the public vote. If people felt that was unfair, she always has the option to ‘sing.’ It’s not like many of them are actually singing to a pre-recorded rehearsal track anyway, is it?

What a way to ruin Jade Ellis’ performance. You all forgot about her.

Jade Ellis (Take Two)

Freak Like Me – Adina Howard

Look good. Sang great, but still slow tone and talking through song than singing. Tone of song with drum/bass kick in was awkward and did not work together as an arrangement.

Watered down, where it could have been electric. Tulisa playing safe with girls again, hiding how great they can be to try to stay in competition. They would stay in competition and be propelled to the front in high value if they burst out excellent performances, with dance and style, instead of a stand and sing and move a little bit around. A couple of stationary sways does not constitute as “dancing.”

GB – Love image. Look like pop star. Weaker vocals. Worried for you.

NS – frightening. (No reaction to that comment) Didn’t get it. Reminded Nic in auditions of Gabrielle. Energy and non-belief.  You were awkward.

LW – Not the girl we saw in auditions. Better than that. Style than substance.

Tulisa claimed more hypocritical lines – Everyone’s forgetting themes. (See Week 1 show , where Tulia granted Spraggan an opportunity to break the rules and perform her own song disregarding the themed week.) Chance to grow and change up in weeks. Learning along. Try different things. Trying to dance and do something different. (Making sure she slipped in a sympathy vote) Lost voice and confidence, last week (in case we all forgot, or simply weren’t watching). Louis chirped in it didn’t help this week in song choice, where Contostavlos snapped  instantly “I disagree!”

She can be good, but wasn’t this week as she could have been. No time for confidence to come in a voting public who do not care for confidence and only look. Surely you figured that out in the ethos of the show since making unspoken alliances with Louis and keeping Nicole ‘on-side.’

James Arthur

Sweet Dreams – Eurythmics

A second sweet dream song. Though this was more of a Muse track (which they covered) , having potential to be exceptional.

Intense beginning with gothic underline. When major kick in came, didn’t elevate notes as higher than level pitch, which should have been launched.

Aiming for a dark, enriched outcome, was slightly stationary and missing the ingredient to excel further. Held back. Pleasing overall in light of rest of acts filled with hypocrisy. The arrangement was clearly guided at Muse than Eurythmics.

GB – brilliant.

Ghetto diva Nicole said of the Caucasian James – difference. An International recording artist. Brought soul and blues. Girls be having sweet dreams about you, that was dope, dude.

While James is a powerful option to have a future and one of the few with immense talent of the pack, these statements are too farfetched and placing on a pedestal that will eventually crumble beneath him with pressure placed. It was good, but in no way an “international recording artist” yet. Not even one album released. Lose the ludicrous statements and offer reality and constructive advice. It was capable, but needs more foundations laid first to build that platform to rise above on.

Christopher Maloney, Rylan Clark and Kye Sones are the three odds on to face the danger zone.

Sources also report Simon Cowell ordered all judges to attack Christopher Maloney with negative comments, despite performance value. Louis Walsh continued that tradition as puppet to Cowell. Sherzinger didn’t help. Cowell plans to name Scherzinger head judge next year in a u-turn despite initially planning to remove her from the show, and is now aiming for Gary Barlow to suffer his beefy wrath. X Factor is ever more political than it ever has been, fans feel. Most have switched off as a result.

Earlier in the show, humour spread its way through in a light hearted manner, which Contostavlos childishly reacted to in a negative, pitiful manner. Barlow who joked that he did not wish to feel the force of Tulisa’s “fag-ash breath” irked the twenty-four year old, with an open mouthed reaction who bit back with claiming Barlow was an alcoholic drinking red wine before the show. Tulisa couldn’t take it. (A joke, that is.) X Factor neglected to mention this time that fag ash breathe trended worldwide. Usually they can’t wait to inform us on Twitter status. Tulisa was previously called a “chav” by judge Louis Walsh.

Over on Xtra Factor, directly after the main show for some sisterly gossip, the magazine show saw moody Tulisa ‎say “its fine” when asked then responds “Dont apologise to me on screen!” as Barlow attempted to right a wrong in an adult manner after aiming to have some banter on the show. Barlow admitted he had “a sip” of red wine only. Sitting next to a smoke screen, perhaps he needed it.

Playing the victim, Tulisa said people had to attack others when their acts couldn’t cope. Tulisa last year created an on air storm when claiming artist MishaB was a bully to other contestants backstage engulfing a media storm that caused the audience to bully Misha, thanks to Tulisa’s comments which she later admitted shouldn’t have been mentioned, question the validity of those claims. Seeing B as competition as favourite to int he show, as she was, B was voted off before the final. Tulisa won the show last year with a girl group, Little Mix, which she became too personal with, to feed her ego a victory among the judging panel.

When X Factor is ready to grow up and removal all its problems, Tulisa, Walsh and Sherzinger, which won’t likely happen in defiance, the show proves to be a tiresome format that has lost its edge, humour and fun. Ego driven adolescents and ludicrous statements jumping off one split second to the next with every performance, acts are simply forgotten and the judges panel is in turmoil.

Louis reaction to “Fag Ash Breath”

Within three years X Factor may truly have its fag end stubbed out.
