From 8 to 7. The X Factor contestants gave their shot with their performances last night. And although, some performances did stand out, it was an average night over all. Movie week did not turn out to be as grand as I had expected. Louis kept on shouting about him being the judge and also boasted about his limited movie knowledge. Simon kept on nagging about Lloyd’s performance and Cheryl. And actually, in a long time, John & Edward actually evolved into being likeable. Phew! Danyl has emerged from the shadow of being cocky, then broken, and gave a heartfelt Prince performance last night. Stacey shed off her non-mobile skin and took on a sexy image, and Olly felt as comfortable to do the Twist and Shout. As for Lucie, I think Miley Cyrus would give her an intern position, and Joe just seems at home with theatre. But the winner of the night for me was absolutely Jamie Archer. He is born to be wild…I mean..performer 🙂 I can totally see him performing at Wembley or any world class stadium.
Talking of which, I am very very sad today to hear that Steven Tyler has quit Aerosmith. And more sad so, coz Joe Perry says that the remaining band is searching for a vocalist to replace him. IMO [ and the millions of Aerosmith lovers ], Steven Tyler is the voice of Aerosmith. No matter how good a song is – if it is not sung by Steven Tyler, it will never be an Aerosmith song. Tyler is the face, the voice of Aerosmith. If there is no voice, there is no music. Period.
Back to the competition. My predictions for the night.
Bottom 2: Lloyd Daniels and Lucie Jones / Jedward
Eliminated: Lloyd Daniels.
We have to find out when the curtains go up as the Live results are announced in just 2 hours from now.
Performers of the night: Black Eyed Peas and ex-X Factor winner – Leona Lewis.
Join us for the Liveblog and discussion of tonight’s result night – Live at 8pm London time. Cheerio!
Live from London, we are here for the Live results. Performing tonight are: Black Eyed Peas and Leona Lewis. Lines are still open, but only for a few more minutes. The judges have entered the arena – and yes, it is the Superman theme being played. LOL. BTW, they haven’t told us what the judges get if their acts win. Could be like for the judges’ act win, a charity donation could have been arranged.. Donno. Just saying as a suggestion to the X Factor producers.
Back to the act ensemble – They are singing – Katy Perry -Hot n Cold. Was that in a movie? That was well choreographed, and Stacey is really looking hot. Even in the ensemble, Joe’s voice can be clearly heard. But Jedward were very much miming. A quick recap of the performances of last night’s performances.
Stacey from Dagenham – We Love ya!!!
Olly – Always fun to watch him. Olly Olly Olly Oi Oi Oi!!! Cheryl sez: Olly is the one to watch
Lloyd: Pffft. Go Home. Cheryl wishes Louis all the best for Jedward 😛
Jamie: Cryin’ ..That was spot on. Louis go home and rent the movie.
Lucie: Miley Cyrus stuff. Not my kind. That’s SOOOOO Disney
Danyl: Purple Rain, and Danyl is back. Hit the homerun with that one.
Jedward: It’s actually fun to watch them. But Louis is promoting them as an anti-recession depression mascot.
Joe: Musically spot on! Whatever happens, Joe has a bright future at the West End.
But next up, is Black Eyed Peas performing live their latest single – Missing You. I love this band. Their songs. But it’s a bit weak I must admit. The performance is a bit lack lustre. I don’t like the song either. Nothing great in terms of melody or the pyrotechnics. Nothing wow about it, but Fergie has killer vocals though. And wtf was that note at the end. That was a long ass note. But that song – wouldn’t buy it. And no Dermot – that was not fantastic.
BEP gave some tips for the contestants and Fergie thanked Cheryl for letting her borrow her shoe 🙂 Ok, time for the first break. After the break, the voting lines close, and Leona Lewis performs. C u in a bit.
Back from the break. Voting lines are closed. Judges are being questioned about their pick for Bottom 2. No one says a name. Simon picks Lloyd and thinks – one of the girls.
Time now for Leona Lewis’ performance of her latest single – Happy. The new single is live on her website: http://www.leonalewismusic.co.uk/gb/
The sound is so much generic. Its hard to please me with such a song. I do like Bleeding Love. But this one is just looks like a compromised sub-edited version of that. Nothing great about this. But her vocals are definitely great. She is the greatest Diva from this show so far. 6 acts will be safe, 2 will be in the bottom to sing for their survival – One act goes home- After the break. BRB!
Back from the break. Heart beating. Nerve wrecking. Results time. Judges enter with their respective acts.
The six acts who are safe this week, and for sure singing next week are:-
Lloyd Daniels [ WTF? Simon is worried]
Jamie. [ Phew!]
Bottom 2: Jedward [ finally] and Lucie. So Dermot says – one will stay, and one will go home. Err… two could go home. So, if it comes down to the judges, Jedward can go home. Or if one of the judges turns out to be a pussy like Simon did last week, Jedward could still be in the competition. Oooh. The drama is definitely building. All of Louis’ acts can be gone tonight. I’ll be so happy to see that. Be back from the break.
So we are back from the break. Lucie takes on John & Edward. Simon promises that he will be judging on the basis of the performance tonight. Louis knows only one word – Fun. Anyway, time for the sing off – Lucie Jones.
Oops she coughed. She is singing Whitney – One Moment in Time. She is definitely in a totally different league from Jedward. She CAN sing. Love her vocals towards the end, but the beginning was a bit dragging. But overall she gave her best to save herself. That was definitely the performance to save herself.
And then Louis says, Jedward will perform – Rock DJ. How lame, how predictable. And the crowd in the audience is booing. Silly choreography. And a repetition. Very weak. Out Out Out..finally!!! And lemme say it for the last time..Booooooooooooo.
And no Dermot. 2 will be going home tonight. Over to the judges.
Louis: You should not be in the bottom 2. But I HAVE to save the boys.
Danny: The act I am sending home is Jedward
Cheryl: Tonight, I’m gonna send Jedward home.
Simon: [ Don’t be a pussy tonight] Tricky one. I am not surprised that you two are in the bottom 2. I don’t think that either of you can win. Who’d I rather see again? – I’d probably see the boys. Booo Simon.. Booo Simon. I’m going to let the public decide. Seriously Simon, after all you said about the boys, now you’d see them again. Efffffffffff you. No, actually FUCK YOU SIMON.
Booooooooo Simon. The act leaving tonight is Lucie Jones. This is WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. Simon..what a pussy, hypocrite…deadlock..Lucie is eliminated. Jedward safe. WRONG. Effin WRONG.
Danny wishes all the luck to all the good singers in the competition. Two of her acts eliminated in two weeks.
Next week – Shakira performing.
I will be on a holiday next week. So I am not sure about the liveblog of the performance night as I am not sure of the internet connection. But I think I will be at least able to upload a whole post after the performance show [ not a liveblog]. But I will be back home on Sunday to liveblog the results night.
What happened tonight was just wrong. I am over ITV2 now for XTra Factor. Fuck Simon!! He has lost all credibility.
I am still shocked with Lucie being voted out. Lucie’s Whitney vs. Jedward performing Rock DJ. Simon had promised that he’d pass judgement based on the performance. Seriously Simon, check your effin ears. I am extremely annoyed. Totally unfair. Jedward vs. Lucie is no competition. That was horrible.
Danny: Lucie did a great performance.
Simon: I didn’t put these in the bottom 2. I wasn’t expecting this result.
Maz from Fife says she is very annoyed at Simon. Lucie was the better performer. Simon says – Let the public speak. I think Simon is strategically eliminating the stronger singers for his own benefit.
Tony from Essex asks Louis – Are Jedward the new Ant & Dec? Pfffft!!! Louis is doing his voting face 😛 Someone call Harry Hill for – The Many Faces of Louis Walsh.
I am soooo angry. All of Louis’ acts could have been eliminated. I believe secretly Simon has a secret pact with Louis.
Amanda from Manchester praises Danny for having composed herself professionally. And she says to Simon – You should be ashamed of yourself.
Simon replies – I wasn’t expecting for this result. What can I say?
Amanda- Nothing . ROFL. In yo face Simon!!!
Angela from Shropshire – We still love you Simon. Why do all contestants listen to you above other judges?
Simon: Whoever wins, we will all give them our support. [ Such a smug]
Sarah from Preston – Predictions of the Winner?
Louis is happy for the one he picked. And so Cheryl says, is it one. So it’s not two.
Kim – Dermot vs. Louis – Simon Effin Cowell says – Louis, you cannot upset the nation. Bastard. Anywho, we’re outta here. Catch you next week for the Liveblog. See yaa!!!
