Week 9 Results

Eccentric Scherzinger telling everyone to “Kiss It!”

Pretty doily Tulisa

After the glam entrances in the downgraded ‘style wars’ of dress sense, and a re cap of all the previous night’s drama the acts took to the stage together once more.

Group Song

Merry Christmans Baby – Three Blazers feat. Charles Brown

James and Jaymi sang well. Josh ruined it once again with his blues brothers humming along. Jahmene adds some sound.

Rod Stewart arrives!

rod auditionee

Why, oh why, didn’t this Rod hopeful get through?

rod and finalists 9

Rod and the lads sing a jolly jingle tune

James serenades Rod. Maloney given no lines at all seemingly.

At least you can’t blame him for anything this time. So, if the song was rubbish, then it’s not him your diverting your concern to. Think about it. Blatant James Arthur plugging as hot favourite from X Factor inside production crew. They and Cowell want Arthur to win. He’s gaining the lowest votes.

Tulisa

Sight of You

Covered up her urban roots whilst performing new single.

Covered up her “urban roots” whilst performing new single.

From afar zooming in and out, in a hoody and a prism spotlight shining down, Tulisa entered a level vocal of minimalism to a backing track. The X Factor judge, who critiques other acts on the very stage entered what was a rather standard performance with no mass impact nor emotional connection having no key expression, all clad in leather. Felt off in key towards end after most took their attention elsewhere or made a cup of tea.

Charity Together for Short Lives, which helps young born children with difficulties was shown next. Proceeds going to them from a charity single by X Factor, which wasn’t fully explained. Did we forget in the mass bubble of manipulating the shows audience to vote a certain way?

On Wednesday 28th December after realising that Christopher Maloney may win the show, Simon Cowell announced the charity will receive 100% of the profits from the single, shunting the winner in the hopes Cowell reaches a number one single in order to save the flagging reputation of the show above all else in a panic over the ratings and production crisis unfolding. Previously there has been a separate charity single featuring all live show acts.

P!nk

Try

pink resplendant 9

Resplendent, class act once again.

With an elegant ensemble of violins, electric guitars, drums and a smooth resplendent tone Pink instantly added her attitude to the song and maintained star quality never overdoing and ruining the track. Yet another flawless performance with all external factors and pure quality with gorgeous glam for the star who still contains attitude in the industry. Pink will be touring the UK back in April.

The Result

Dermot O’Leary informs us that in “no particular order, first act through to the final is” – James Arthur. Joining James is – Christopher.

The last place in the final goes to – Jahmene.

Union J have been eliminated on the public vote as the judges cannot save anymore. They were in the sing off an astonishing three times. We were treated to one last performance.

Union J

Love Story – Taylor Swift

Jeffrey, George, Zippy and Bungle

Jeffrey, George, Zippy and Bungle

Repeating the same song from earlier in series again, began with tough vocals from Josh then JJ following through. Jaymi consistent. Following with strong sound, the backing group still awkward. George still the odd one in the group doing nothing much except an extra. Many a missed opportunity.

rainbow

The placement of the band is highly disjointed, and if they re-affirmed their structure they might be interesting for once in the right aspect. They were on borrowed time for many weeks as voters voted in defiance, not respect.

Union J boldly stated publicly they can be bigger than One Direction and plan to take them on and destroy their market. Speaking to tabloid newspaper The Mirror, Josh Cuthbert added: “We want to do better than One Direction.”

Can Union J defeat One Direction before they've even begun?

Can Union J defeat One Direction before they’ve even begun?

The three finalists burst out from the opening doors behind to cuddle host Dermot to celebrate reaching the final stages of the competition.

Emotional Jahmene cries, as James and Christopher thank fans for their support.

Star Sande set to perform at the final next week

The final looms next week with acts like Kylie Minogue, a returning One Direction for an astonishing third time, as well as Emile Sande and Rihanna, who performed last week.

Style wars. Nicole gleaming in a sequined carpet.

Pretty Tulisa

Christopher Maloney

You Raise Me Up – Josh Groban

chris maloney 9 mike

Louis agreed with Nicole and added Maloney was still “karaoke” act. Louis who could not resist stating that Westlife made this song. Josh Groban had released it earlier and Westlife covered it, as many are aware of. Catty Walsh went further to abuse Maloney adding a sly dig. Claiming Andrew Lloyd Webber, actually pronounced Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, of which Louis has slated in the past for his ITV show Superstar achieving low ratings felt of Maloney “ I could see you in the west end as Phantom” in yet another derogatory form of defamation and slander to Maloney with personal features and attacks after Walsh recently won a defamation case over The Sun newspaper for publishing a false story.

Nicole Sherzinger also chimed in which weeks ago claimed it “was not her style” to cut someone down, said “Christopher, that is a very hard song to sing. And after that vocal performance, you have proved that you have earned your place here.” And added a sly dig at the end.

Shocked Tulisa also stated “really enjoyed that performance, no buts. Everything about that was very you and I think you’ve done everything you can to get into the final.”

Jahmene Douglas

I look to You – Whitney Houston

jahmene 9

Another sob story literally.

Speaking in song lyrics tenderly then into a shouty noise only. Three quarter way through timid warble. Highly unstable. Completely attempting sympathy votes. No actual song sang yet again. Emotional wreck, if won would break in months.

LW – got your confidence.  TC – always sing beautifully. That performance was the next level monotone Tulisa adds. Speaking as a medium, physic Contostavlos adds “I know your brother watching other you and he would be very very proud.” Glad to know she knows… How disrespectful.

GB – courage to do song like that with so much meaning personally. Congratulations. (shouldn’t be attempted)

NS – keep it together, I surrender an emotionally teary Nicole speaks. That’s what’s special about you. Baby Jesus came up in that song. A little angle.

If you had respect for deceased you would not use him as a ploy to win a show.is nothing sacred anymore?

Union J

Beneath You’re Beautiful – Labrinth feat. Emeli Sande

union j 9 guitar

All in matching outfits, again.

The boyband who are all out of reach to girls and have paired up with partners in their lives, (sorry girls, you can’t have anyone of them) how duped do you feel now, wasting your money votes?

Mimer Mohawk baby begins. No sound. Shifty eyebrows beady sympathy eyes. Ruining Emeli Sande. JJ not singing. George on guitar, too much going on and drowning each other out, a load of noise and no vocals coming through from the pre-recorded rehearsal backing track with the miming boys. Not one stood out and everyone was boring, off in key and timid. No powerful or interesting vocals at all. Completely destroyed that song. You may remember this new single was sung by Sande and Labyrinth just weeks ago on the live shows. Union J really do believe their ego tackling monumental artists is above everyone else, which is what ruins their chances. Everytime, they never listen. The end result is a loss. No record exec’s will be looking to this band. Bargin bin.

TC – well done.

GB – good song choice. Calm on stage. Labels will be fighting for you guys.

NS – cool, individual, cheese free. Josh that was a beautiful start to the song.

LW – everywhere you go is hysteria. JLS and One Direction, Next boyband is Union J.

Will you abandon One Direction for Union J?

James Arthur

One – U2

james 9 busker

Circling camera following Arthur around on stage as he stays in one spot and doesn’t move and lost his vocals in focusing on where a camera is. Couldn’t look more like Professor Green in staging. Boring, sounds nothing like the original in any respect to re-format own style.

LW – massive future in music biz. Nicole grate job smirk on face.

TC – why shouldn’t you win? Why shouldn’t a credible one. You representing Britain. Britain vote for James.

GB – come out for attack every week. Finalist for me.

NS – only northerner left. Chris Maloney is from Liverpool.

Jahmene Douglas

At Last – Etta James

jahmene titaic 9

Struggling to get through this, all whiney warbles and off in pitch especially in the last notes of shouting screams.

LW – after that performance you are sailing right through to final.

TC – consistent. Held back vocally. Time to pull out those massive notes. Done that tonight. Wanna see Jahmene bringing it.

GB – that was jahmazing. Incredible.

NS – That note, dot dot dot, get outta here.

Christopher Maloney

Haven’t Met You Yet – Michael Buble

chris maloney 9

Showing Maloney’s old dated reel to sway opinion to abuse and eliminate Maloney.

Making an old style of technique credible and current. Nicole preparing to unleash assault with a worried look that Maloney could contend the crown. Strong vocals, and great end linger.

NS – Oh Chris, it is semis I don’t think that was strongest my love. Gary why give him this song. It was best you could do.

This type of artist. GB

LW – agree with Nicole back to karaoke thing to me, you are what you are do your own songs. Gary picked wrong song.

TC – definitely not strong as first. Showing us different side.

Gary – versatile.

Maloney was blamed for doing old songs, Jahmene did ‘At Last’ from 1960.

Union J

I’m Already There – Westlife

union j 9 beanie

George starts rather shaky as ego maniac Josh looks at him, then takes the reigns to over sing and mess harmony up. Others join in as forgotten identities. All looking lost again. Miming in background Jaymi. No big impact on moment to go forth. Missed key note and shouted it out in mime once more. All painfully boring and no interest. Just walking about lethargically.

Safe on song choice TC. All about hard work put in. X Factor is not about hard work put in thick bint.

GB – nice song choice, extremely safe. Had a chance to win night last week on motown. Think you’re a risk now. Too safe.

NDS – I loved it. Bomb diggity mentor to Louis.

James Arthur

The Power of Love – Jennifer Rush

james a 9

Someone didn’t iron his shirt…

Shouting over the staging to keep up, and all a linger howl only towards the end. Nothing more to say. It was near empty other than linger.  Won’t be a star when/if gained a contract. Would fizzle out in six months at best.

Another boring piece from James. Come on… terrible with no star qualities outside of this X Factor bubble, always so monotone and depressing. All staging only carries him. Out of this, won’t have a good carer at the rate he remains.

GB – performance of the series. Bring out emotion in people.

NS – Great Britain come on, what am I doing here? If James Arthur isn’t in final. It was transcending.

When X Factor isn’t busy ripping off the crematorium, adding depressing vocals and monotone judge comments with repetitive output and family influence for cute boys to win to bully others with backstage politics, X Factor proved another car crash TV hit.

Booting out Tulisa for Saint Cheryl Cole will not be the correct move. We will have more on this later.

Results to follow with Tulisa and megastar Pink performing on Sunday’s results show.

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 8

X Factor UK 2012:

Week 8

 

This week’s theme is to ruin classics from ABBA and Motown

as acts sing two songs each.

Rylan Clark

Mamma Mia – ABBA

Alice in Wonderland meets the asylum.

Louis claimed Rylan was “not a joke act. Brilliant song choice Nicole. Your people’s champion” in another dig at Christopher Maloney.

Tulisa spoke “Loved staging. Well deserved. My kind of cheese. Love you Rylan.”

Gary –  “officially declare check mate. Respect you for getting to week 8. Their choice whose here” speaking of the public.

Nicole – “that’s the way how you open the show. Looking so fine. Sung amazing, so proud of you.”

Well done for X Factor allowing Women bishops into society on the chess board.

Union J

The Winner Takes It All

Stereotype song. Still won’t learn selecting song that is over their assumption is a mistake. Tulisa most inconsistent judge forever if ever there was one follows.

Simple.

GB – best of luck to you think you’re on a roll.

NS – that’s what your future looks like up on stage. Courageous and strong and Josh such ease.

Ease = lazy.

LW – everybody sings. Please vote, as Louis ASKED for votes live on air as he has done years on end. It breaks certain ruling and code in media law.

Sob story Jahmene’s was ramped up to scale 10, this time with his mum involved to gain votes.

X Factor’s sympathy propaganda abusing regulations struck again.

“Child survivor of the year award” which had NO relevance on the show was presented to Jahmene and not one piece of singing aspiration was mentioned. Should a person who needs a singing show who hasn’t fully sung to win just because he is lost in life and needs confidence? Because no one else in the world has a hard life?

Jahmene Douglas

I have a dream

X Factor stooped to a new all-time low with the bulls**t ometer.

Breathy, no vocal singing. Just airy talk through words, with one blaring pitchy noise on big notes, still cannot sing a whole or even part of song, just noise.

Could not have been more boring.

LW – don’t think really suited you. Incredible role model. (didn’t he just say that to Rylan?) On a podium, like lewis Hamilton, Nicole he laughed. Well, she likes a Lewis lookalike, doesn’t she? Though not that Louis anymore, perhaps?

Wot a beautiful, beautiful performance repetitive Tulisa adds. “ I said it last week and I’ll say it again, running outta ways to kiss your butt, strongest voice in competition.”

GB – another great performance. Slightly rushed ablibs. Well done.

NS – don’t think it was a great performance, it was the performance, the American adds, to no reaction of her Americanised audience playing.

James Arthur

SOS

There’s James Arthur, with his guitar, again.

Busker esq. Uninteresting and just standard. Hard to see albums sold should he wins at this rate of downplay. Has the wrong mentor. Has been shelved by about twelve professional years’ worth. It’s a shame, had the most potential of the top two.

LW – travesty without you in show. TC – that is what is so amazing bout you, take a classic to point I barely recognise it. (That’s called uninteresting.) I want either you or Jahmene to win competition. Propaganda.

NS – make that song better.

Christopher Maloney

Fernando

Another classic look and a sound of a star.

In middle of dancers flapping to make him seem ignored, smothered or forgotten. Diversion tactic.

Very good change in the vocals. Maloney has improved drastically. Charismatic, tender.

NS – lovely theatrical piece, very good vocals, (pause.) Little bit of a snoozer, can’t knock you for working very hard,

Contradiction.

LW – Abba the musical. All the guys around you with tops on. Walsh strongly implies trying to cast insinuations to Maloney’s sexuality which is high level victimisation.

This, of course comes from Walsh, who has never had a mention of his romantic liaisons, never had a female in the press or linked to any in sight, and has been involved in homosexual scandals in the past.

TC – in underwear, staging creepy, stop myself giggling,. Vocally very good.

GB – sorry bout comments should be focusing on vocals of yours. Very good.

Rylan Clark

Baby Love / Stop! In the name of Love / You Keep Me Hangin’ On – The Supremes

OMG, like, look at feet, not so well gel!

Another clouded confusion of songs ruing the essence that once was The Supremes. How could you Nicole? You should be ashamed.

Union J

I’ll be there – Jackson Five

Look kids, they’re all wearing the same clothes! Plaid or what!

Typical Louis boyband slecetion of the teeny bopper Jackson Five for a teeny bopper bundle of cuties to look sweet on stage.

What about the singing? They wasn’t any. All minimal, all this spikey haired ruiner of the band, apparently he’s called Josh, destroying song from front of house aiming to be the star of the group, neglecting that “the gay one” can actually sing the best. The one on the end, and the other bookmark on the left, couldn’t have less direction if they tried.

James Arthur

Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye

Yearning to Scherzinger for guidance.

A classic from Marv, James tackled it with grace, well placed once he rebuked his trademark guitar and sang a bit of soul the judges have been harping on about for weeks. Only now he gets a soul number. It was a fair vocal with a not so engaging stage presence and lacked anything near Marvin’s classic. Note the word is classic. You should consider not attempting a classic, because, you will never compete with that, and look ever inferior. It can harm your reputation.

After Louis stated best vocal performance of the night, James’ ego is highly going through the roof believing he is better than the rest.

Jahmene Douglas

The tracks of my tears – The Miracles

Ella was voted off because she was boring. James was in trouble because he was, boring. Jahmene is boring.

The vocals were as we continually repeat, which should ring volumes to X Factor, the process isn’t working, and Jahmene, who needs to “win” for personal development to feel like a human in a mass sympathy vote, who would also then be ruined by the business, is a massive sigh of tedious exhaustion.

Christopher Maloney

Dancing on the Ceiling – Lionel Richie

Got the party groove going upbeat and another good vocal performance.

An upbeat motown number instead of all the boring, mundane tracks before him from the rest in the competition, Maloney entered yet another good vocal performance. The vocals were sharp, crisp and fitted the tone of the song, which is ever essential. Remember when everyone used to say song choice comments, notice how, none have mentioned these when their acts can’t do well in that critique of commentary. That should tell you enough of the competition, surely?

ABBA should gain a knighthood for the musical donations to this country only to be obliterated. They’re probably chuckling round their fires with a cuppa! Motown was also a chance to shine for all acts and X Factor producers had hoped James and Jahamene would topple Christopher as feeling they had more soul. Truth be told the double J’s failed to deliver to their fullest potential, begging the question, are they all out of steam now? With boring performances and no real outlook even should they have a record deal. With a “poor man’s Professor Green and Edwin Munch’s famous painting screaming to no sustainable effect, what more can they actually offer in spite of Maloney actually looking, sounding, and receiving praise for his vocals, on a singing competition, as a star? If X Factor were clever they would realise if Maloney is polling most votes, Cowell would be “quids in” either way.

Cowell has never really cared about the show reputation, has he? This year the act will not be chasing the Christmas number one single race as in previous years, after Rage Against the Machine toppled previously disallowed to be mentioned victor Joe McElderry, who has also signed to another label akin to Matt Cardle. Cowell is said to have been championing a boy (James or Jahmene) from the start, and plans to make Scherzinger head judge after intending to dump her initially. Many feel this is why she was given the strongest category and fixed to make “X Factor history” as first judge with all three acts in the quarter finals.

X Factor UK 2012 Week 7: Results

X Factor UK 2012

Week 7: Results

All smiles…

Group song

Young – Tulisa

Union J began with a fair start from singer Jaymi. Jahmene standard. Rylan getting into party mood. Christopher given some rubbish lines to look weak. Ella voice didn’t match the style of song.

All together sounded like a watery cheap back alley performance. James enters with the musky tone well. Rylan shimmy’s to some words. Union J guy aiming to be front member with terrible vocals. Group re-join. Arthur looks highly uncomfortable. Jahmene a lost, non-entity. Rylan at some party not bothered about the song, in a karaoke manner. As a group and the song, it was run down and should have been avoided. All a caricature gimmick.

When asked on the performances of acts biased Tulisa said of her act Ella, “one of her best performances.”  Pass her a new script. Host Dermot O’Leary said Nicole would be the first judge to have all three acts in the quarter finals for an ego boost. (Yeah, but it doesn’t actually mean anything, does it?) Careful on cont-sa-nants Dermy.

It was reported earlier in the week stubborn Jahmene Douglas refused to sing the scheduled TGIF single by Katy Perry as it disagreed with his morals for including lines regarding drinking and partying as he is tee-total. He also added he wanted to be in the sing off, for a laugh, highlighting how much the competition doesn’t mean to him. He added he needed to win to “grow as a person” for personal development.

Olly Murs

Troublemaker (feat. Flo Rida)

Crowd pleaser Olly Murs enters from opening doors walking down light up stairs. Careful how you approach those stairs. Is this the new version of Michael Buble come Jersey Boys? Braces were a good look but didn’t fit his body and way too loose. As for the track, we like Murs as an individual, though his music of that different style doesn’t instantly appeal or grab us as we would like to. Bear in mind one enjoys this ‘type’ of music, but Murs is a bit too easy with it. Not much lift up in the lyrical approach, however, we do like the beat and style of this track and are pleased to say we do like it. There is always one song of any artists that you do like despite the main one’s missing the point beforehand. Has a strong following and enjoyable chap. We wouldn’t turn down a pint int pub and a good ol’ chat, put it that way. He’s cool and this tune was pleasing., but repackaging is crucial to success.

Flo Rida did not make an appearance.

Alicia Keys

Girl on Fire

Dark ninja gothic queen with a Chinese dragon following her proved to be another epic, class act, with an exquisite and powerful star that blew everyone out of the water and stamped a statement on the musical industy. Standing tall on a very powerful and sturdy star pedestal. The performance was outstanding and the musical tone was enriched. How can you contest that?

The Result

Nicole thrilled for Rylan, forgetting her real acts…

Announced in “no particular order” the first contestants to survive till next week’s quarter final are revealed.  Those through are – Union J, Rylan, Jahmene and Christopher.

X Factor once again left Christopher last to be named so that the audience will boo and assume it is his fault, it isn’t so don’t be so easily manipulated. He polled the most votes, according to sources inside.

One hates to say it and it isn’t gloating, but, I told you so. One day, someone, somewhere, will listen, for once and take note. Last week we clearly stated Ella V James would happen. Union J and Rylan are sympathy votes, and Maloney is the most popular, yet X Factor are doing everything in their power backstage to mar Maloney’s potential win which is again, victimisation and a form of bullying. It wasn’t his fault, but announcing him last is meant to manipulate you. Open your eyes, instead of being played. Aren’t the British public “cleverer” than that?

The sing off

Ella Vs James

How will the vote go? Will there be a decision?

Tulisa bullishly introduced her act as “A girl who does not deserve to be in the bottom two tonight, it’s my little star Ella.”

Ella Henderson

If you’re not the one -Daniel Bedingfield

Her voice isn’t fitting the style of songs. Song choice is the most crucial lesson Ella can learn. It is the wrong songs selected. Her range cannot control the notes. Everyone has to make the song their own in some way, sure, but, don’t take on a song that cannot carry her tone. Choose something specific than a “yeah, that will work” in a rushed five minute decision without any thought process.

Ella gave a good rise in the high notes, but still off in parts and can only produce the high notes, which comes off to the public. Hard to see mass albums sold afterwards.

James  Arthur

Fallin’ – Alicia Keys

Distasteful Nicole exclaims with borderline swearing upon introducing her act – “One of the greatest talents to grace this stage, this is James E’ff’n Arthur.”

James loudy shouts with his trusted guitar. Claims of a Professor Green with a guitar, Arthur is ruining the rise and fall with notes with his attempts at intensity coming through to showcase his talent, which is highly ruining it. Strained, awkward and a little sloppy.

Hmm, it’s a conundrum, but we never sit on the fence. We would save, thinking hard on it, James, slightly tipping it.

The Vote

Infuriated, volatile adolescent Tulisa adds “People are voting for the wrong people. Ridiculous. People not voting for who they should be” going off on a personal tangent to insult the public’s integrity.

Nicole’s resolve faded to a sour note mentioning “Tragedy for the show that you two are in the bottom two” as most talented.

Bookend Louis added “I’m in shock. I hate seeing these girls (Tulisa and Nicole) upset. Ella, so much potential. James, amazing, a ready-made act for record deal.”  Louis opts to send home James. Tulisa alliance is always strong.

Gary – “Finally. It’s a singing competition. The razzmatazz and staging, put behind you,  it’s about the vocals. Act sending home is Ella.”

DEADLOCK arrives! The public vote now boots out the one with the fewest votes. Who is it, Dermot?

Leaving the show is – Ella.

Stroppy Tulisa released a boorish onslaught after failing to get her way. The audience were in uproar on Twitter adding “Who does she think she is? Not going her way, she throws a tantrum!” The mass hypocrisy of Rylan and Union J praised from Tulisa’s own mouth in previous show comments has cost her for trying to build alliances with judges when Ella faced this situation. Tulisa CANNOT blame others when SHE praised those comedy acts. This is what happens when you lose your mind. It is inevitable.

The recent WAG joined her departing act on stage repeating “It is ridiculous. People thought she was safe, nothing wrong with her performances.”

Didn’t see that one coming, did they?

Come off cloud nine and realise that people didn’t vote for her because they didn’t like her performances and safe play in the competition, running out of steam, coasting along with no risks taken.

Union J were saved by teen girls because they fancy them to save from last week’s sing off. Jahmene is a mass sympathy vote, and Christopher is most favourable due to his journey and progression as an artist, as the show ethos pertains to. James and Ella were both boring performances. Once realisation from own personal ego, one may learn to be a little more dignified and mature while understanding how it works.  No one is voting for a girl, because all the girls are busy throwing their knickers at Union J and Jahmene with sympathy and adoration. You’ll never be with them, but public like to think they could have a chance in their warped version of reality. It is the way the show and the pitiful audience allow themselves to run.

Receiving torrents of judge/backstage abuse for singing and being popular on his musical transition.

“Im close to Tulisa. So sorry for my…” Nicole adds after the result on sister show The Xtra Factor, admitting personal connection clouding judgement calls, as well as apologising half-heartedly for her obscenities.

Tulisa further implied aggressive aspersions “I’m back to my urban roots, don’t ask me any question!” Angry, juvenile, emotional children on the panel are the biggest risk possible. After receiving mass amounts of wonga as a panellist having all on a plate, Contostavlos choose to slate the very shows format and the public’s integrity.

Tulisa would not stop her torrent of misunderstanding by continuing on “If you like an act pick up the phone and vote” she added in the most inconsistent display of language possible. That’s exactly what the voters did. It just happened to be that they did not like Ella nor the mentorship of safe and boring performances.

One caller rang in and said “her song was slower.” She added “Love Ella, but was slower.” Defiant Tulisa chose to place another  calculated personal  attack on Christopher once asked by co-host Caroline Flack, yet the audience boo that Rylan got through, when asked if Rylan should have got through also. Tulisa only blamed Maloney for gaining votes on his credibility, as comedy goof Rylan, whom Tulisa constantly praised, sailed through. She felt Rylan was OK to go through.

She slammed him being annoyed with “That Christopher’s through” with a slouched, bratty face beamed to the nation live on air.  Twitter users instantly wrote she was “Proving Twitter right that she is a chav” as Louis Walsh branded her. Louis said he thought Rylan would go.

Tulisa encouraged a caller to repeat his comment when debating if Christopher should go through having heard it correctly first time. Unable to handle rejection and hopes of winning the X Factor, Contostavlos sails out of the quarter finals and as the first judge to have ZERO acts in the competition.

At least she can “sit back and watch it” as she mentioned on Saturday’s main show.

The audience cannot blame Maloney for Ella’s departure when Rylan and Union J are two of the worst singers in the show which forces a double standard on the show and its whole backstage victimising production after failing to realise that the act’s they personally asked to audition to go through to live shows were not as popular or talented as they once previously thought.

Twiiter users claim Tulisa was “Vexed”

Most added they would turn off their screens again, not because of Ella, but because of the bullying to Christopher and Tulisa’s scathing attacks, whilst Nicole’s annoying catchphrases of no sense and distaste removed them from the audience of watchers.

You can see last week’s results show where we clearly saw this one coming! – https://falsefabs.wordpress.com/2012/11/13/x-factor-uk-2012-week-6-results/

X Factor UK 2012 Week 7: Guilty Pleasures

X Factor UK 2012

Week 7: Guilty Pleasures

After a pathetic, 24 TV drama style recap of last week’s drama of Louis Walsh failing to vote, the show, which showed no follow up nor point to this recap on screen was a waste of production time. It had no speech, no engagement and no relevance. How far backward are the show producers? Hire someone to fix it, i.e, me. What else have you got to lose, except millions of viewers? Alas, beginning the show were last week’s bottom two stars.

Union J

Call me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepson

Not exactly a “guilty pleasure” seeing as it was a massive hit in its own right for Carly Rae Jepson, however Union J felt they were big enough to tackle another epic song, recently released over the last year.

The performance was utterly dry and absent of any singing with vocals highly strained in a terrible fashion and uninteresting whilst adding a batch of boring context to the mix. There was no star buzz, intrigue or quality in talent and song power. Do them a favour tonight and let their bubble burst. Stood on a box again.

It was revealed on Xtra Factor afterwards that Union J already have a manager, which means that they have a manager. They firstly didn’t sing well for votes and secondly are conning the system of the show as they will have some bookings in their “career” afterwards, proving they are cheating the show. One Direction last year were signed by Simon Cowell when there were four acts left to the end, which now saw them go on to have a career despite ego of said judge wanting to win as the first group and with them. They came in third on the show of their year.

Lame.

Ella Henderson

You’re the one that I want – John Travolta and Olivia Newton

Calling her song on a stage at Disney World in Paris a “gig” which was actually a performance on stage, was not her fault, as the show told ‘em all to say “gig.” Starting with a slow one word linger for long time and safe vocal speaking in tune, the acapella version with piano keys behind was rather dormant and more speech than song. A transcribed tune. You might say. Brief melody and a big shout moment near the end over halfway through which was just a shout and no actual interest, until a long lasting one note held at end for the ‘big’ finish. It was simply a nothing performance.

Nicole – didn’t touch me. Didn’t like song choice but you made it work. Slowed down then picked up. Voice sounded glorious. You have so much fire.

There was no spark or up tempo.

Also, did someone forget that this was a duet song? Ella, was alone.

Louis – that was electrifying for me. You’re gonna sell millions and millions of records Louis continually adds. Whilst talking to his co-judge “and Mrs. Wag” as Tulisa interrupts with “WAF- was already famous”, Tulisa says. As long as it wasn’t waft from the fag ash breath. Whew!

The young judge added “take a cheesy classic and make it a classic. Little star.”

Same old words every year. Get a new script, but, that won’t change anything. Some of these judges are warped in their own principals of ego and “their acts” and not the music.

Boring.

James Arthur

Can’t take My Eyes off of You – Andy Williams

There’s James Arthur. With his guitar. Again.

Another acoustic sing through with vocals more than an actual beat or sound of music and just vocal with guitar made it ever more boring and lacking in star potential, despite glowing reviews, there Is no standout spark as Nicole, playing it down to ‘hold something better for next week’ may indeed cost in the long run with sustained longevity. At this rate will have one year in the business at best. Needs to procure longevity than reliance on survival on a show.

LW – song was a bit safe, you’re already gonna get a record deal, because you deserve it.

TC – one of your most cool-est credible artists. Like going down Camden to find the next cool-est, credible artist.

Yes she did just say that twice.

Gary, who said “putting my act aside” meaning other than his own act, choosing someone on the flip side of the other categories, rather than being biased. It wasn’t a trip of words but the audience at home are uneducated at listening and understanding, whilst caught up in the mass distraction of the show to think for one iota of a second.

He said of James Arthur – “I want you to win this competition.” aside from his act. No other judge is willing to play ball and be honest of picking another category member. Respect him for that.

NS – Cliché Nicole said “we can’t take our eyes off of you,” mesmerizing.

Boring.

Rylan Clark

Girls on Film – Duran Duran / When will I be famous –  Bros

A picture paints a thousand words.

Rylan enters in what looks like a trashy, cheap salon, come back alley house in the red light district for a 2012 Blade Runner installment. Only problem is this wasn’t a Ridley Scott production. It looked terrible. Cheap and tacky, but what of the singing or even the entertainment on offer?

Dead crowd.

Entertainer Rylan, whose real name was revealed last week actually as Ross, failed to enthuse a quietened crowd and couldn’t barely encourage them throughout, even when pleasing for their help mid performance.

If you can only ever do a mash up every song, it proves you have nothing to your repertoire and need cheap gimmicks to carry you #XFactor

TC – not one of my favourites. Comedown from last week.

GB – good news is you are famous, bad is give it a couple of months. This is going nowhere, for me. It’s getting worse, vocals not improving, got to be over now surely.

NS – Every week you’ve taken risks. I want everyone to pick up the phone and vote for Rylan.

Time for OFCOM to investigate!

RC – never ever said I was best competition. This is a live performance. Most people “mime” that was just a pitiful comeback. You are not a star. You won’t be Madonna or Carly Rae Jepson. I was in the sing off two weeks ago where I proved I can sing.

Two weeks ago, Rylan, in the sing off did NOT sing and only produced SOUND with NO vocal singing and a couple of words only.

Lippy Rylan, who bit back at Gary, who was a charming sport about the matter, did prove the childish behaviour and being a ‘rebel’ is what, according to voters, causes him to remain in the competition only.

Makes it a shameful disgrace to Britain and everyone in it. It just makes you sigh, switch off and feel depressed about Britain’s legitimacy, or “legacy” if you will. It is just tedious.

Sha-maze balls. – NS.

Tedious.

Christopher Maloney

Total Eclipse of the Heart – Bonnie Tyler

Rockin’ those coats AND looks a star.

Strong opening, rising further in vocals. Has made the greatest transition and improvement and kept his vocals collected towards the end to prove a romper stomping force to all in the contest. Louis ready to pounce with attack. Tulisa jotting down a few notes.

Nicole, (as is Simon Cowell, who wants a boy to win the show this year) realising potential threat to her X Factor ego crown, said of Maloney – “Wow, that was a, lot, to take in.” “Life sized portrait of your face and laser of your eyes shining through. Really creepy. Other than that you sound nice.”

Wow, nice…

Louis – cannot knock you. Must be doing something right. TC – all established I won’t be buying the album (loud boos) for genre you do, consistent, vocals consistent. Admit defeat, sit back and listen to the song.

Gary said – Glad everyone’s talking about what’s going on behind you. Not your fault, not mine.

Someone’s over inflated head may have put Maloney’s up there. Everyone understands in showbiz expanding images of one is a tactic to sway opinion in a positive or negative context by choosing “creepy” images to attempt a derailment of someone who is silencing critics, despite their reluctance to acknowledge.

Backstage politics to ruin Maloney from winning as Cowell wants one of the three Boys to win for mass exposure. Can’t fault his voice so try to cut his performance down with staging, how the song was cut in parts to try and throw viewers off and downcast his popularity. Show insiders have been plotting to find ways to prevent Maloney from winning, which is also borderline victimisation which should be looked into by regulators.

Credible.

Jahmene Douglas

Don’t Leave Me This Way – Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes

Wa-hhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Is every song acapella and boring tonight? Stood on raised podium was highly uncomfortable and exposed. Lingered on one and another big notes and didn’t shoot them that high to be honest. And the burst into party flowing theme did not even happen, despite the attempt of making this a song of such proportion. It was timid, plain and boring. It was just a performance and not that at best. There has been no stand out qualities shown over the course, which is just shocking.

TC – running out of ways every week to kiss your butt.

GB – your talent is ridiculous, you’re a great singer.

NS – call those ad-libs, Jah-jazzles. Fought through it like every week.

Theatrics.

There was no fight, it was a stand and sing and just get the key notes out only.

Strictly goes Wembley, X Factor goes Disney…

Dermot keeps calling him Ryland, while Tulisa and Walsh have a personal joke that failed to please anyone else at Gary Barlow’s expense. Grow up.

Jahmene’s screams of sound are not thrilling in the slightest. Leading them down the wrong path is not something a mentor should do because then that shows the mentor has lost their own understanding of what to do and only in it for a glorified purpose. When there’s a doubter, the show used to figure a way of silencing critics, now its approach is if you don’t like it leave, well viewers have done exactly that.

Has a hand in running things, but how much tonight?

Empty words from Tulisa. No star quality nor special appeal from any one. Barely any standing out. All been carried, and those are the ones the X Factor show specifically hunted down and ASKED them to audition for the show. Half of the 12 contestants who made the finals at Week 1 of live shows were hunted by the show and asked to come to auditions, with an underlying ‘guaranteed’ continuation to live shows. Christopher Maloney was not one of them and voted in by the public.

X Factor UK 2012: Week 6 Results

X Factor UK 2012

Week 6 Results

Group Song

Beautiful Day – U2

Bono must be livid. Share a cuppa with Sting.

Were told this one is “live.” James started the song to no impact as Rylan ruined as usual. Christopher added a deep, musky beautiful tone. All the rest pile in drowning out the sound. Ella was ok. Not amazing. No opinion on her from anyone. District3 way off and shouty all over every time. Can’t maintain level tempo of composition. Union J sang woooo hoooooooooooooo. That was it. Jahmene chimed in, always having to shout at the end with one note only. That’s the only thing he can do, can’t hold a full song together. Won’t have a future after the X Factor bubble bursts at that rate.

Nicole mocking Britain. Why are you here then? Go “home” if you feel uncomfortable here. Louis gave a humourous quip about urban roots on Tulisa’s hair. Ooooh! But, then, that’s what the show is, unwitty, childish antics of namecalling.

Little Mix

DNA

I have succumbed. There is always an artist/group that you dislike for whatever reason, though has a least one “guilty pleasure” you can’t help but like.

This single shows attitude and slight sense of character, but lose gimmicks and the Tulisa hand DNA sign jewellery accessories. Accessories added will destroy your look and view will become labelled as lame instead.

Way too many ‘hunky’ dancers. Struggle to get those notes out. Bit watered down, singing live. Still learning. Wonder if Misha B will get a performance call?

Sexual crotch on display. Record biz does require you to change though, yes, but, damn… Tulisa full of her own inflated ego. There not yours anymore…

“So funny. All grown up now.” She mentions. “Why you meant to do this. So on point and confident now.” She continued. On-point… Anyone would think this a dancing show…

What artists get signed when un-confident in the business? Ah the “beauty” of X Factor and a multi-millionaire music mogul to bail us all out. Won’t take my calls though will you..? Contradiction. Double standard.

Ed Sheeran

Give Me Love

Ed Sheeran gave a pre-recorded performance as he was busy with a Newcastle gig. We don’t blame him; we wouldn’t cancel a music gig for a tele show that can’t be bothered with music.

The Result

Five acts through in “no particular order” are – James, Rylan, Jahmene, Ella and “you’ll find out after the break.”

Wow, X Factor are really mixing it up…

The final place safe for one act next week is revealed – Christopher.

The sing off

Union J Vs District3

District3

Amazing – Bruno Mars

Off key too fast into it and rushing through the song. Tripping over everything. No harmonies. Terrible. Guy in middle tries to save but so wayward off key. Near crying. Can’t hold it together, none can handle pressure, should not be put into spotlight. Louis concern.

Union J

Set Fire to the Rain – Adele

All over one another worse than District3 then shouty linger out guy who thinks is lead man. Terrible alignment. Too big a song, they NEVER learn when a song is too big for them. District3 crying realising they are out on the sidelines.

Union J too aggressive and shouty. All for show, absolutely terrible only the guy in teal is trying to save it. Louis looking solemn, realising both groups were just as bad as one another.

Was it not Gary who said only James Arthur should perform Adele songs? Union J still doesn’t learn, and with that attitude, you won’t make it in the business lads.

The Vote

Louis is going first. Will he take forever to decide?

As mentor to both, Dermot O’Leary asks for “one name to send home.” Here we go again, Cowardly Louis bellows – “I’m not voting.” Fire him on the spot.

It’s happened before, Dermot blasély points out dismissing it, in reference to when saint Cheryl Cole chose to abstain her vote in a disgraceful manner. You are paid tons of money to be on the panel and make a decision, even when your own acts come up against one another. It should not be allowed to be dismissed and anyone avoiding should be fired on the spot!

Gary thought this choice would be “quite simple seeing these two in bottom” initially thought. “Shame, is one of the worst vocals to date” and opts to send home District3.

Nicole said “bad day of harmonies” of District3. On Union J she spoke – “Boys, you have my heart. Group I think is more mature and a little bit more ready is Union J.” Screams of audience are pitiful. Nicole sends home District3.

The vote is over at 2 out of 3 votes due to Louis cowardice.

Tulisa – “think the performances were in different ways, ya know? Have a deep connection with District3 so I would’ve saved District3” Tulisa claims. Good to see her “heart” is in it when judging a music competition based on “singing” as she once expressed weeks ago.

Louis Walsh returns to say they are a ready-made pop act. On their downfall he adds – “I don’t know, maybe two boybands?”

Wait for next week when Ella will be facing James in the sing off.
