X Factor UK 2012
Week 9: Semi Final
Style wars. Nicole gleaming in a sequined carpet.
You Raise Me Up – Josh Groban
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.”
I look to You – Whitney Houston
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?
Beneath You’re Beautiful – Labrinth feat. Emeli Sande
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?
One – U2
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.
At Last – Etta James
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.
Haven’t Met You Yet – Michael Buble
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.
I’m Already There – Westlife
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.
The Power of Love – Jennifer Rush
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.
