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?

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 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 5: Goodbye Mr.Kye!

Goodbye Mr.Kye!

Last night contestant Kye Sones was voted off the X Factor in another shocking decision to date that has seen all the talented acts leave the show every week for those who cannot sing, according to the public who have decided enough is enough and chose to switch off. Simon Cowell’s X Factor lost yet another 1 million viewers roughly, after the following two weeks back to back lost 2 and totalling 4 million according to reports.

Kye faced novelty act Rylan Clark in the bottom two, where the vote went to Deadlock once again.

Ry beat Kye, in another controversial decision that has neglected more viewers to boycott the show next week.

Kye is the first man to leave the contest after all elimination before him where females, except for male/female duo MK1.

Notice how all people left are Women…

Only teen girl Ella Henderson remains. Reports claim Simon Cowell is seeking a male soloist to win the show.

Nicole has all three males in her category left.

The votes

Louis said he would “do the right thing” and save Kye after controversy with Rylan and Gary’s act Carolynne Poole which sparked the mass decline of X Factor from its first live shows.

Nicole and Gary both save their own acts, Rylan and Kye, respectively.

Last week Judges sent Tulisa’s act home. This week Tulisa sends Gary’s home.

Juvenile Tulisa Contostavlos caused the controversy again, voting “with her heart” than a professional option she is payed to judge for, opting to save Rylan. She said it wasn’t just a singing competition. Inconsistent Tulisa two weeks prior stated it was “a singing show.”

Many believe this was “Tulisa’s revenge” for Gary’s “Fag Ash Breath” comment last week, a joke immature Contostavlos could not take.

Detailed show analysis and review to follow.

I have a life somewhere among all this disaster, you know.

X Factor UK 2012 Week 4 Results

X Factor UK 2012

Week 4 Results

Sunday’s Results show became yet another controversial decision with the viewing public.

Tulisa marching with a purpose, making a tiresome statement to show off a cigarette patch as the judges entered was just daft.

Group song

Without You – David Guetta feat. Usher

One member of group Union J begin. Rylan and Jade mask one another. Kye picks tempo and vocals up. Low pitch from Union J, Jahmene warbles in, Christopher gives it some wellie. District3 come in from nowhere like hopping bunnies, James and Ella come in strong. District3 then shout off key into the mic, as Union J add into the contrast terribly. Everyone joins together which proves disjointed overall. Group songs used to be outstanding. Not any more. Kye and James stood out.

Last night’s drama was replayed with the acts before the first musical guest took stage.

Do remember, this was the exact same song in the same group collaboration last year. Unique.

Fun

We Are Young

Described as “Power pop and Indie Rock” multitasking with a drum beat to strong setting and charismatic tone, Fun proved how to be a professional group on stage with heightened, cool vocals and a crisp ensemble  sound as a group.

Judges Worst of the evening?

Nicole – District3 and Jade.

Gary – Agree with Nicole.

Tulisa – confident about my girls. Christopher, but I know he’s got a strong following.

Louis – Union J won (last night), Jade is at risk.

Robbie Williams

Candy

“Britain’s finest global superstar”

Everyone loves the “one and only” Robbie Williams. I do , too. However, I am a professional, and that song, was not one of his best, especially as a comeback single. The beginning of the song has a catchy beat and makes you want to get involved initially, though slightly dips in the middle and lacks lyrical power. Sorry Rob.

One thing Rob does do is perform, and made up for it giving it some, though he did drop a “vote Rylan” mention. A pleasing thing for some, though losing credibility from others.

Working the crowd, Rob even straddled Louis with a hug making tons of people Jealous, and even placed himself on the knee of a guy front row in a comedy moment for a serenade, to prove X Factor has some blokes in its audience.

Red or Black balloons showered the stage with pink ‘candy’ confetti.

Everyone still cheers for Robbie, so no worries. Oops, Gary co-wrote that.

“Who impressed during masterclass” Dermot asked Robbie, who answered “Ella.”

The Result

The acts were now announced in “no particular order”  who would return next week – Ella, District3, Jahmene, James, Kye, Rylan and Christopher.

The Sing Off

Union J Vs Jade Ellis

Leaving the two left to battle, the group went first.

Union J

Perfect – Pink

Trying a low, acapella esq, with light backing sound to acoustic tones, took an easy performance to plea with “Pretty Pretty Please” which highly exposed their awful singing. They could not safeguard themselves and the “harmonies” were all over the place jumping from one to another which rose their sound with near shoutish yells of sob story.

Jade Ellis

White Flag – Dido

Put the willies up Union J for a moment

“The very beautiful, very talented” A strong vocal to begin with an evangelic Dido performance receiving praise from the audience in attendance, Jade’s smoky, sweet voice had Union J worried in the background assuming they would leave the contest. Jade’s rising vocals lifted the crowd, mood and tone of the song with a unique style for a new age. It was a classy performance from Ellis, deserving to stay and defeated competition vocally.  But, how will the votes go?

The Vote

Now in the hands of the judges, Louis save his group Union J as Tulisa voted to keep her act Jade, naturally keeping ego in place.

Louis was loudly booed for “sending home Jade.”

Nicole voted to send home – She said of Jade- “strong young woman, one of my favourite voices with a tone. You’re a recording artist and a brilliant one” Union J – you boys, your work has proven yourself to me” Nicole saved Union J.

Loud boo’s for Nicole.

Gary has casting vote. Of Union J he added – “not been exceptional, excited to see what you do next,, seen commitment and ambition in your eyes. Some place to go with you guys.”

“Jade you’re a phenomenal vocalist, I wonder if I want this more for you than you want it.”

The act sending home was, Jade.

The audience were miffed. Jade became the next contestant to be voted off the show. Gary’s integrity came under question about how much pride he had to possibly swallow to keep his judges and show bosses on side to protect his own acts. Already in the doghouse with Mr.Cowell for being honest, some felt he had no choice but to cave in to the status quo.

Nicole was seen as a contradiction who has no levels of star judging and only as an over sexual elder woman suffering a mid-life romantic crisis desperate for teenage boys as eye candy.

Jade remained a professional about the decision humbly stating – “Thank you for all your critique.” “Now my life begins.” Mentor Tulisa took it on the chin – I apologise if it’s my fault. Maybe I should have given her (more) ballads. Ballad’s would not have helped. Everyone assumes a girl should do a ballad, like the groups, which is another safe and easy option that shows no star quality to win. Unfortunately, certain judge’s behaviour causes acts to leave instead of the talent on show, as well as backstage politics.
