X Factor Categories Revealed

Judges Categories revealed

xfactor 2014

With the looming returning of the UK version of The X Factor this weekend we can reveal which judges have which categories.

The show sees the return of former judges, cheating scumbag Simon Cowell and overrated diva Saint Cheryl Cole. After a secret divorce and new marriage, Cheryl whateverhernameisnow (you think I got time to type all that out?) hopes to reform her flagging career after Cowell infamously sacked her on the American version for being rubbish.

Nasty judge Cowell has decided to keep the American X stage formation as well as the recently introduced seat swapping bootcamp choices, singers and viewers deemed as cruel.

Joining the panel is everyone’s favourite (?) Irish Lepparechaun Louis Walsh, who sits on the end and delivers bitchy attacks on contestants because he has no other job and has been the only original since the show’s birth 11 years ago.

Livening up the show is the stand in but very worthy Mel B, otherwise known as Scary Spice from mega successful girl group the Spice Girls. She had a guest spot in previous years where she won the hearts of the nation with her no-nonsense attitude with honest critque than the pantomime others provide.

Who got what?

Mel B will be in charge of the Boys.

Cheryl will (as always on a return) get the Girls.

Smug Simon takes the almost invisible Over 28′s.

Louis Walsh continues to get the scraps, taking the ever useless Groups once again.

Save Sam Callahan!

Save Sam Callahan!

He’s the fresh faced newest talent in the music industry making waves over on this year’s X Factor contest. Cheeky munchkin Sam Callahan, 19, hopes to win the singing contest, making it through to the fifth live week. However, the cutesy singer/songwriter is under tough competition as the X Factor bosses are said to frown upon Sam as a music act.

Image

Every week he’s also been trashed by judge Gary Barlow with fellow judges Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne attacking the teen sensation for failing to be vocally sound on the shows. Two weeks ago, fellow singer Abi Alton, 19, was in floods of tears on stage after Osbourne’s comments.

This week Sam, who set up his online shop selling his own merchandise was slammed by the show’s producers on X Factor and plan to put him in a less favourable light on the show with the judges and his performance staging.

Image

Many fear Sam will be booted out of the X Factor this week and could face the bottom two in the sing off if fans fail to vote for, as mentor Louis Walsh adds “Hardworking” Sam.

X Factor owner not a reported fan of Sam.

Sam urgently needs his “Callafans” in support of his career on the show. X Factor boss and producer Simon Cowell is not a reported fan of Sam. Cowell, who previously felt there were three contestants who could win, and two more if they really worked at it, could do. Syco Entertainment hope for Tamera, as favourite, to win, and plan to dress her excellently and produce amazing staging for her. Cowell admitted girlgroup Miss Dynamix, who left two weeks ago, where one of the five star acts. The others are believed to be Rough Copy, Sam Bailey and Nicholas McDonald.

Essex hunk Sam, who spoke to Closer magazine, spoke of negative comments from a friend about his X Factor stint. “I‘ve been lucky with the support from friends and family, but I did have one nasty comment from a friend.

heat torso sam

“He was saying I had changed now I’m on TV and I wasn’t making time for the people I used to know. I felt annoyed – I’ve been living in the house and spending every minute rehearsing or performing. I don’t have much free time but, once I do, I’ll spend some quality time with the people who matter.”

Sam thanked his fans on Twitter, on Wednesday, including supportive Westlife singer Shane Filan. “Just wanna say a big thank you to @ShaneFilan for believing in me! This means a lot to me mate x.”

Image

“Some things change but ill always be the same old kid from Essex with big dreams & my heart on my sleeve..Never forget where it began! #true”

Sam has also done charity work, stripping off into a chilly pond for the Teenage Cancer trust in some cheeky snaps below.

Image

Looks like Sam is going to need his Callafans on Saturday to vote and save his booty from the bottom two to prove his worth to the show and its producers, who seem to secretly wish to send home Callahan.

Tax evader Gary Barlow’s scathing comments to Sam included “The problem is everyone else is so much better than you.”

Poor Sam said he felt like “Gary Barlow’s punchbag.”

Many feel Callahan is likely to lose votes to second favourite Nicholas McDonald and front-runner Tamera Foster. Simon Cowell wants either of them to win.

Sharon Osbourne “You’re a Pedophile!”

61 year old oddball brands female teen a sex abuser!

Image

Sharon Osborne launched a new, allegedly, drunken tirade on live television calling a young female a Pedophile. Slurring her words including “Pediophile” she slammed a young dancer for approaching sixteen year old baby faced singer Nicholas McDonald.

Osbourne made the comment live on the X Factor singing competition on ITV1 roughly an hour ago.

Outraged fans were upset after X Factor, acted like the word had never happened with the fellow judges ignoring as if it was never mentioned. No apologies were offered throughout the show since.

Osbourne, 61, took the shows levels of over sexualisation of young people to a newer extreme branding people such abusive levels on live television.

No word has yet been spoken of her actions.

X Factor UK 2013 Results: Week 1

Ellie Goulding and Cher give some performances for tonight’s results. The results came in.

cher 1

First act through in no particular order – Kingsland Road. Joining are – Abi, Sam Callahan, Sam Bailey, Miss Dynamix, Hannah, Nicholas, Tamera, Rough Copy. 1 more is certain of a place. Last place goes to – Luke.

Mrs. O has done a great job in her comeback. It’s Over Vs Over. Excellent re-hire Mr. C. (Cowell)

One tweeter wrote “I wonder if Sharon will vote this time or strop off like the last time she had two acts in the bottom two!”

Shelley Smith

One Night Only – Jennifer Hudson

Shockingly does a very good performance and belter. But, she’s fat, erm, a big girl with talent and not popular with the kids screaming for teen boys over-sexualised by the show. You do the math.

Sharon looks down for her own contestant’s name on piece of paper in front of her on the desk to introduce Lorna. So drunk, the second evening in a row, she cannot remember her name. Anyone else would be sacked.

Lorna Simpson

There You’ll Be – Faith Hill

 

Weak. Defeatist. Teary.

Judges Vote

Shaz is now seen after being strategically told to drink a cup of tea.

Dermot went to Sharon first. Mrs. O calmly and arrogantly left her acts in the lurch once more by choosing to abstain. “No Vote.” Dermot quickly moved on after the disgrace of a judging role to vote, where ITV didn’t bother pressing Osbourne for a vote. Abstainations are not allowed, despite X Factor being too moronic to figure out what to do on a live show that goes completely wrong everytime.

After a sneaky glance and word from Shaz, who didn’t vote, Louis chose his selection. “It’s a tough vote. Sending home Lorna.”

Gary decided to even the field. “What a fantastic sing off. Shelley – if you sang like that last night you wouldn’t be here. Lorna – you got an amazing voice. Sending home – Shelley.

Decision maker Nicole sealed the fate. “That was unbelievable. Shelley, more to see from you so the act I’m sending home is Lorna.”

Lorna Simpson leaves the competition as numerous outraged fans screamed of a “Fix Factor” instead. This year no deadlock will occur so if a tie the lowest public votes leave the show. Because Louis Walsh can never make a good decision.

Lorna a goner. Simpson leaves the X Factor contest.

Xtra F*ckta!

Over on ITV2…

Ring the Alarm… Sex sirens Flack and Richardson

The calamity continued. Sharon told her recently leaving contestant Lorna to “go to the jungle. Go to Big Brother. All you have to do is sit there and do nothing.” Sharon decded not to vote and drink “tea” all night. Host Caroline Flack asked Shaz “Is that tea in there?”

“No, but that’s how I get away with it” Obourne admitted on live television.

Over personal Nicole said she saved Shelley because “I have a connection with Shelley.

Daughter to Osbourne Kelly was interviewed, briefly, in the audience. She said they were “Having fun.” Sharon recently re-opened the feud with Lady Gaga in a national kiss and tell rag on Sunday jumping in on her daughter’s losing fight with Gaga. She also predictably attacked former judge Dannii Minogue with numerous lies, including hinting at Minogue ‘stealing’ a handbag Sharon bought her for her birthday.

Moving away from disaster that is Osbourne. Xtra Factor launched a new one. Weedy plank and new unknown host Matt something revealed the “sex alarm” had gone off.

To add to this disgraceful over-sexualisation and debauchery Matt revealed his WINKI an acronym meaning World Internet Navigation Keyboard Interface. (More like BLLX) He then changed it to Matt’s Interactive News Generating Exhibit (MINGE) and then Browser Utility Monitor (BUM)in some ingenious choices to make interesting entertainment.

Tea tree oil.

Other debauchery uttered included “I’ll go through your keyhole “ to maneater Flack. Dermot was instantly appalled shouting “Oh come on?!” Matt then crossdressed in a headband and lipstick for no apparent reason.  Oh hang on, it was a guess the contestant moment. He was mimicking Abi.

Sex pest Matt then shockingly said “Love listening to your sound while being rubbed up and down by a masseuse” to Abi’s performance. Abi is 19.

Sex on the beach and twerking were also mentioned and conducted. He then blew kisses to Kingsload Road, ages 19, 19, 20, 22 and 25.

Then following with “Let’s see what’s going on on my bum.”

The debauchery soon ended as leaving contestant Lorna Simpson was asked of her time on the show. She added “I just want to get out of these hideous clothes. Its not me!”

X Factor UK 2013 Week 1

The X Factor has re-launched its series for another rough thirteen weeks for the coming year. Taking their places were the resident sponges Louis Walsh and Nicole ‘sh*tstinker’ Shezinger. Gary Barlow admitted his final series in order to tour with Take That next year. Original judge Sharon Osbourne has also returned for one year.

hopefuls 1

This year the panel attempt to remove voting politics, ratings dips and boredom whilst presenting a mixed bag of musical ‘talent’ and entertainment. Tonight is an ‘80s night.’

First up was the new age Tina Turner, Hannah Barrett. Judges said she “killed it” with a performance of What’s Love Got To Do With It? Then came the baby face Nicholas McDonald. The teen Scot, selected by mentor Louis, desperate to win, was selected over two ‘fat’ guys with talent. McDonald is bookmakers SECOND favourite to win. Louis Walsh is his mentor. If there was an official poster for over-sexualisation of X Factor, this would contribute. He’s way out of his depth. The sixteen year old sang Spandau Ballet. He was talking through most of the song.

miss dynamix 1

Leona Lewis, Misha B and Alexandra Burke thrown together at the last minute.

Up next were the first group, Miss Dynamix, who fans said look “exactly the same” and wore a fusion of bright coloured dresses. There really was no colour coming through from the girls and are instantly forgettable. Their performance was weak.

Prison officer Sam Bailey gave decent tone and a strong ballad for the first week. This one has Nikki vibes all over her. Nikki got to the final four before voted out for having strategic comedian Walsh as her mentor years ago. Barlow said she had a “gorgeous vibrato.” Sounded to many like fabroato.  No words of interest Nicole spoke “I am speechless right now.” Louis said “Love the makeover.”

sam bailey 1

Backstage, promiscuous Caroline Flack has now created a ‘green room’ come holding bay where she exclusive stuffs a microphone into contestant faces and asks their thoughts before a controller storms in to say they need to go to the stage now. Not pointless at all.

Sweetie Sam Callaghan sang Summer of 69. How original of Louis. Sam’s introduction on the musical talent show was mentioning he is single. What has being single got to do with this singing show? Callaghan gave a dreadful performance and was off pitch everywhere. No real star buzz. Girl’s might cheer, but what have you actually got to offer? Is the only aspiration of the show to get a girlfriend/boyfriend? Goodness… Go home with Louis. Calamity Sharon said – “You’ve got the whole package for me. Got *something*(inaudible) ability factor” she adds.

abi alton 1

Crazy silly females in the show continue making a mob mockery of X Factor. But, what are you expecting when you once again over-sexualise children? Barlow and Scherzinger stated with was not the best of vocals. Mentor Louis responded “Guys, nobody works harder. You’re an absolute dream to mentor. You’re like a little Bryan Adams.”

Following that where an all new boyband. The Wham rejects styled as One Direction where called Kingsland Road. They all looked exactly like each other. They sang the classic, If you’re gonna do it right. What irony. Barlow was accused of being a sell-out. The harmonies were off, they went and touched some girls in the audience frothing at the mouth and weren’t memorable in musical dynamics. Nicole complimented them on their hair. Louis said “I know you’re working really hard behind the scenes. If you’re having a good time you’ll go far.” Drunkard Shaz took the killer line “You look like Leonardo Di Caprio” she said to a Rhydian lookalike. It was from this moment on everyone knew Sharon was sozzled on the job.

Generic Studs.

Mrs.O’s fun act was due next. Shelley Smith gave a performance of Heart’s Alone. Fans were unimpressed. The hydrallic lift of musical theatre made a laughing stock of Osbourne, Cowell, X Factor and Smith. Barlow attacked her for not conforming to a notion every other act seemed to incorporate in their acts “a modern twist on 80s night. You were stuck in 80s. Need to modernise your voice.” This is the same guy who had Chris Maloney, an ungrateful fame seeker using everyone he can. Louis said “You gave it wellie. That’s what it’s all about.”

Pin Prick. Judge Walsh.

Pin Prick. Judge Walsh.

Young, flower power crowned Abi Alton sang a contemporary Bon Jovi classic. One you just don’t mess with, because if you get such a legend wrong, the audience are unforgiving. Alton lost many fans as their favourite. She was accused of being whiny with her acoustic set up. It was beyond contemporary standards to viewers. Louis said “Didn’t hear a pin drop.”

“You could have heard a pin drop” SNAP! Barlow and Walsh utter the same script.

More over-sexualisation now. Lorna Simpson was completely thrown by the buff bodied hunks she would have dancing with her. “Oh my god, naked bodies?” she mentioned. They weren’t exactly naked, only semi. Sings well, but crap and leching all over bodies.

Sexy bodies

X Factor needed to get its script in order and scheduled a commercial break before giving the comments. You got 4 minutes, GO! Gary and Nicole set the comments roll adding “pitch was all over the place” as Nicole followed saying “I agree with Gary.” Thrill seeker Louis said “I loved it. (I) remember watching Top Of The Pops in the 80s.” Sozzled Shaz added “You were a bit, like, unsure. It all took off.”

sharon sozzled 1

The X Factor producers and Simon Cowell’s “favourite” to win, who underwent a radical makeover to shake off her criminal past churned out the sexed up Tamera. Taking on a classic by R’n’B legend Chaka Khan’s Aint Nobody was a huge mistake but got through it decently with help from the auto tuning machine in the background. She span around. It was turned into a club groove watered down. Dance lover Walsh said “You’ve got all of the moves, a great look.” Drunkard Sharon baffled many with her comments once again, adding “Yes misses, you’re very exotic, you look exotic.” Tamera is black. The subordination of black females among over sexualisation continues to grow in X Factor’s favour.

tamera 1

Over-sexualised Tamera. “She looks just like Rihanna”

Audience fears over Luke Friend’s dreadlocked hair were on offer now. He combed it back and had a little bit sheared off. He looked like action hero Predator instead. He sang a song by Sting. It was a weak song filled with shouting vocals. It was a rotten choice. Sozzled Shaz began the comments off with “Luuuuuuuuuuuu-oak! Performance value, bang on. Voice not greatest but you don’t need it with that face.” (Have we got an over-sexual counter in the corner? We may need one.) Housewives favourite Barlow compared themselves next. Your voice is an acquired taste. Load of mum’s out there who want to wash your hair.”  Handler Louis spoke “Loved your energy. I don’t care. I just want people to vote for ya!” Last year X Factor was investigated after Louis who avoided it before, continues to attempt to sway votes asking people to vote, which is profound.

Rough Copy went last. After their visa hiccups and X Factor stalling they began In the Air by Phil Collins. Hazy start on first line echoey. (Gary nods) Borrowed strobe lights from TV catchphrase gameshow it seems. Eddie Murphy from Living in America in the blue get up joined the band. It felt bland, empty and boring. Nothing really there. Nicole chimed in “You might be the best band I ever seen.” Louis said  “I love the staging, the image.” More than half cut Shaz muttered “The moment is here for you.”

rough copy 1

Now all acts have performed, a new terror was approaching. Cue the doomy music atmosphere. “Ahh, ah!” The flash vote is up next! (?) The flash vote allows you to vote for the next ten minutes to save your faves then the lowest poller will go through to the Sunday results show, tomorrow night, as one of the two sing off acts. They used the Queen “Flash” music. Disgraceful. After Dermot chats to the acts lined up for ten mins, we predictably go to the 100th break in a two hour show.

The votes were in. Saved were all the Girls and Groups. Then Louis’ boys were safe. Sharon Osbourne’s glorious X Factor return from the past was about to be dented. The act facing the sing off was Clare from steps, Shelley.

Phone lines re-opened to carry over votes for the second act to join Shelley the following evening.

Wise Owl Cowell

For X Factor’s triumphant return with drama, glitz, over-sexualisation of children, subordination of women and vamping up illustrious levels of sexual connotations, the show plummeted to all new lows of disaster levels. The excellent rehire of dated Sharon Osbourne, adding no style or interest whilst being drunk on the show is unforgivable, but pals won’t deal with Mrs.O’s unprofessional indulgence. The first show is often the most crucial to encourage viewers. Tons plan to snub the show that has become an utter disgrace in entertainment, making a mockery of the music industry and plucking young children from obscurity to please a judge’s ego based on area code. Give X Factor three to five years at best before it dies completely, even if it still clings on to a TV platform. Bosses are so desperate they believe X Factor god Simon Cowell will save it, and will take a £50m payoff to return in Barlow’s seat next year. A seat Cowell has been constantly jealous of. Snob Cowell chose to snub options that would help him and his TV show survive, and now, the show is teetering on concussion. Not long now.

The tenth anniversary series of UK X Factor has decided which judge gets their categories.

After plans to host a ceremony on his luxuioris yacht in the middle of French waters, slimeball Simon Cowell aborted that idea. Cowell, who recently made waves of getting his married lover pregnant whilst she was in wedlock, phoned the judges instead.

Resident clingon Nicole Scherzinger recieved the girls category while X Factor veteran Louis Walsh was given the boys. After ten years on the show sponge Walsh was given a credible category. He added this would be his final year on the show, with aims to launch a boyband after.

Baron of truth Gary Barlow was given the groups. Barlow also plans to leave to focus on a musical tour afterward. Bosses gave him and Louis the top categories to keep them on the show, according to producers.

Image

Returning diva Sharon Osbourne, who left the show in 2007 since its birth left after launching a vicious spat towards then co-judge Dannii Minogue. She will get the Over 28s category. Boisterous Shaz was sacked by America’s Got Talent after a fallout with producers. Mrs.O earlier participated in a calculated row with pop superstar Lady Gaga, online.

She is currently on a one year trial after asking Simon Cowell at an informal dinner if she could get the job by offering to suck his manhood.

Image

Si planned to return to the anniversary bash with originals Osbourne and Walsh but failed due to US filming commitments. He will videocall in during live shows via Skype.

Image

Fans are said to be sick of the show hoping it will leave screens shortly after.

If it is clever it would add an entire new panel that connects with the format of the show. But it won’t, because stubborn media mogul Cowell won’t take direction from anyone.

Voice UK Series 2 winner crowned

After last night’s final of the second series, The Voice UK crowned its winner.

Image

Stunning the competition with her sensual and tender vocals, Andrea Begley, 27, from County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, won the contest over favourite Leah McFall, Mike Ward and Matt Henry.

Image

Final Four. Winner Andrea, country singer Mike, will.i.am lookalike Matt and frizzy diva Leah

Many instantly stated Andrea won due to a sympathy vote for being partially blind, however this is not the case. The reason she beat others was down to area code. As often shows do, they vote based on who they like, or where they are from. With a whole country behind her, Andrea shocked the show but did deserve to win as a credible artist.

It wasn’t her condition, it was because she was Irish. Now, before anyone suggests ‘Irophobia’ I have had and do have friends who are Irish, get on well with them and not stigmatising the paddy’s. I love the paddy’s and they love me. However this is the way reality TV works. Producers know that voting on one demographic will line their pockets with gold and it always happens on X-Factor, for example. Eoghan Quigg and Janet Devlin were two very bad acts but got through because of the votes. Producers specifically pick for this to gain as much money as possible on phone votes.

Proud winner Andrea

Last year Leanne Mitchell, who has since flopped on her win to no man’s land was Welsh. Many were surprised Leanne, the worst of the four in vocal ability in the final of The Voice UK series 1, won the show because of Welsh voting.

Image

Leah McFall’s mentor will.i.am allegedly stormed off the stage when Andrea was announced. Danny O’Donoghue bolted up to congratulate his winning act to maintain bragging rights and be on the show for series 3. Lord help us.

Image

Last year Danny dated one of his contestants Bo Bruce who went on to realise an album now unheard of.

Bo selector. Danny chooses duet with Bo.

My advice? Get used to it. This is how shows work and this is what will continue to happen. Your best chance of no disappointment is not to vote and accept this outcome. At least you wont be wasting the money on the producers gold cash ins.

Andrea does have more of a chance at success than Leanne but fans of the show feel it is headed the same way as before rendering the show pointless. Americans can always do the show better. The show currently airs on the ‘by the book’ safeguard channel BBC in the UK, funded by the taxpayer.

Will did this last year on the show which frustrated BBC producers. Will is said to plan to launch Leah’s career after being furious she lost the vote.

You may have seen the three hunky lads strut their musical ‘stuff’ on the most recent series of TV talent show The X Factor, where Essex based trio Scott Ritchie, 25, Staz Nair, 20,  and Luke White, 24, made quite an impression on the judges with a mesmerizing rendition of the late Amy Winehouse classic Rehab. (See video below.) The band made it through to the bootcamp stages narrowly missing out on a place in the competition, though that hasn’t halted their progress.

The guys have been busy recording their new album, soon scheduled for release in the UK.

Having gained a sneak peek of their sound from the EP, Just No Good for Me, Times Red have certainly captivated with their charismatic tone.

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.

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.

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?

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.”

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.
