Semi final

Stacey Solomon really showed the world tonight that she is a X Factor finalist.

I have to admit I was not struck by her first performance which I think was ultimately a bad choice by her mentor Dannii Minogue. There are many Michael Jackson classics that Stacey would have simply excelled at for the first round on X Factor but boy did she deliver on her second song ‘Somewhere’ . Stacey was simple amazing. I have to say though singing aside a really did enjoy her stage performance tonight on the first song as she strutted her very sexy stuff across the chairs

check out Stacey Solomon’s first performance below – Michael Jackson classic ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’

Then Stacey went on to sing a X Factor winning performance of the all time classic ‘Somewhere’

and wow this was simply amazing. You could see Simon Cowell mentally booking his next session of botox as his 2 acts where simply blown out the water – I am sure at this stage any act will we awarded a record contract but its quite clear that the winner will be Stacey Solomon or Joe McElderry

And the judges had to say


Olly Murs – ‘Can You Feel It’

Louis: “Olly, who would have thought you’d be in the semi-final, the guy from Essex. Everyone loves you, you’re talented, you can sing, you can dance, you’re an all-round entertainer. You’re one step away from the final and people need to vote for Olly because he deserves to be in the final.”

Danni: “Can we feel it? We can all feel it in the room tonight. That was fantastic. Not only do you have the whole package, because we’ve seen you perform every week, but you were grabbing the package! If you pull out two performances like that you have to be in the final.”

Cheryl: “The sound in here when you were performing was deafening. It says it all. Everyone loves you, you’re an entertainer, and I hope to see you in the final.”

Simon: “What I liked about that was you should have been a bag of nerves, because I know how nervous you were yesterday and how much this means to you, but you put all that to one side and put on a great show. You sang really well, you look like a star, you have the presence of a star and I agree with the others – I just cannot imagine you not being there next week.”


Joe McElderry – ‘She’s Out Of My Life’

Louis: “Joe, that’s a really hard song you picked but you absolutely made it your own. Simon’s right, you have an amazing tone to your voice and you’d have an amazing recording voice. If you won, if you got into the final and won, you could sell millions of records. I think you have loads of talent, you’re the most consistent performer in the competition and there’s a big gap in the market for someone like you.”

Dannii: “Joe, you just clocked up another superb performance. It’s hard to believe you ever have nerves because you sing like a dream. I can hear you all over the radio and all over records. You’re going to do very, very well. You have to be in the final.”

Simon: “It’s becoming incredibly repetitive, which is very annoying, but you’re just getting better and better and better. I’ve heard a lot of versions of that song but that was one of the best versions I’ve ever heard. It was so stripped down, and the latter part where you changed the tone of your voice was absolutely on the money. It felt like it meant something to you. I’m really proud of you Joe, and of what you’re achieving.”

Cheryl: “I couldn’t be prouder. I’m speechless. That was chilling, everything it needed to be, passionate, emotional. Honestly, Joe, I think that was even better than anything you’ve done before, if that’s even possible.”


Stacey Solomon – ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’

Louis: “Stacey, you’re in the semi-final and I’ve been a big fan of yours all along. However, I wasn’t crazy about the song. I don’t think the song really suited you. With you it’s all about the voice and I think the whole production took away from the voice. Sorry, I thought it was the wrong song.”

Cheryl: “I disagree, I thought it was absolutely fantastic. Talk about yummy mummy! You look hot, you look the best I’ve ever seen you, and it was lovely to see you moving around the stage and performing for once. I really enjoyed it.”

Simon: “Well, it was fine, it just wasn’t you. It was gimmicky, silly, and with all the Michael Jackson songs in the world which you could have really, really nailed, for me that became too cabaret. You were thinking too much about getting from there to there, and what it did was it affected your vocals. You had too much to concentrate on. So I wouldn’t have done that, but the good news for you is you’ve got two songs tonight and I know you’ve got a fantastic second song. But that wasn’t the best performance I’ve heard from you.”

Dannii: “We’ve taken everything on board the judges have said for the whole series and put it together so you weren’t a ‘candle singing in the middle of the stage’. It doesn’t look like cabaret, this look suits you and you did it well. If you were an artist out there putting on a concert, you would be doing this. Any other singer would put on a show. If anything is affecting her vocals, it’s that she’s got infected teeth, that’s the only thing affecting her vocals.”


Danyl Johnson – ‘Man In The Mirror’

Louis: “Well, Danyl, as Dannii said last week this is a singing contest and you’ve definitely got the voice. I believed in you all along, you’ve had a tough time in the press, but on the vocal it was amazing. I love everything about your voice. However, Simon, what’s with the screens, the polar bears, climate change? It distracted from Danyl’s voice. Danyl, you’ve got the voice, I love it, but I think Simon will do anything to get votes.”

Dannii: “Danyl, I love that song and it was a really good performance. You’re back to the energy you had originally when we first saw you. But I agree with Louis, I was confused when the polar bear came on screen.”

Cheryl: “It was like ‘Earth Song’. But about the performance, it was really good to see you up there and giving it some. You’ve been through a lot but still come out and give 110%. That’s what you need to do to get into the final, so good luck.”

Simon: “Danyl, that was absolutely incredible, that performance. Absolutely on the money, genuine, brilliant. Sorry, but it was. What is amazing, is that you’ve got the guy’s career in the balance here after doing a fantastic performance, and all you two can talk about is stupid polar bears. He didn’t choose the polar bears, they’re not distracting from him. It’s supposed to be a tribute to the song.”


Olly Murs – ‘We Can Work It Out’

Louis: “Olly, that was another great performance. You’re consistent every week and you have the likeability factor. I liked that you didn’t pick a very well known song, but you made it your own. You remind me a bit of Jay Kay from Jamiroquai with the silly dancing, but it was really good. Are you going to make it into the final? I don’t know.”

Dannii: “You’re always a good performer. I’m not sure that song showed the best of your vocal ability. The dancing was spectacular. But you know what, if I was at home now sitting next to the phone I’d pick it up and vote for you.”

Cheryl: “I’ve always loved you, you’re an entertainer. I could hear you making that type of record, that style of music. I hope people pick up the phone and vote for you.”

Simon: “This takes me back, because it’s Stevie Wonder, to the very first time we saw you and what we liked so much about you. You’re the guy next door who dreamt about being a popstar and I think, taking everything into account over the last couple of weeks, that you thoroughly, thoroughly deserve your place in the final, and I think you’ll be there.”


Joe McElderry – ‘Open Arms’

Louis: “Joe, some people were born to sing and you were absolutely born to do this. You’re a natural performer. I loved the song choice and I think if you recorded that song in the morning you’d have a number one. You tick all the boxes, you’ve got a great recording voice, a great personality, you’re so likeable backstage – you deserve to be in the final.”

Dannii: “You’re rushing in and just making everyone love you all around the country. That song perfectly complemented the first song you sang. With those two, you’ve got to be in the final.”

Simon: “So your mentor decides on the most important night of your life to give you a song nobody knows. And you know what? It was 100% the right decision. Absolutely brilliant. You know what I admire about you – I’ve said this before – backstage, you’re really, really polite, you listen, you’ve learnt, you’ve become a better artist throughout the process, and I genuinely, genuinely wish and hope you are there next week because you deserve it.”

Cheryl: “You know what, that was the first time throughout the whole competition I felt nervous, and it’s only because I know how much it means to you to be in the final. It’s so easy for people at home to know how consistent you are and forget you need the votes, so I pray people pick up the phone and keep you in.”


Stacey Solomon – ‘Somewhere’

Louis: “Stacey, oh my God. That was incredible. You’ve definitely got your mojo back. I didn’t like you in the first part, but that song was incredible. The diva from Dagenham. You took on such a big song. Dannii, well done.”

Cheryl: “Oh my God, Stacey, that gave me goosebumps all over my body. That’s the best I’ve ever heard you sing. You put your heart and soul into that and we’ve got to see you in that final.”

Simon: “Stacey, you are back in the game, sweetheart. What I liked about that song in particular, was I loved the first part of the song where you had the voice we heard when we first heard you. That was the Stacey I really, really liked. Congratulations.”

Dannii: “Stacey, that was absolutely a perfect, perfect performance. You deserve this so much. You’ve worked really, really hard and come from absolutely no performing experience then get up there to do a performance like that, which was world class. You definitely deserve votes for the final.”


Danyl Johnson – ‘I Have Nothing’

Louis: “Danyl, the song is ‘I Have Nothing’, and I think you, Danyl Johnson, you have got everything. You totally deserve to be in the final because you have the talent and a vocal ability. You’re a born entertainer. You’ve had a lot of negative criticism on this show but I want people to judge you on your voice. And I would buy that version of that song if it was available.”

Dannii: “It was a really, really good performance. I didn’t love it as much as the first one.”

Cheryl: “Danyl, that’s actually the first time I’ve seen you physically shaking so I can see how much this means to you, and after that performance I wish you the best of luck to be in the final.”

Simon: “Danyl, I don’t think you’ve had fair criticism so far for what you’ve done in this competition, which is to sing your heart out, take on songs… we deliberately gave you a girl’s song so it would be more rebalanced, it’s one of the biggest Whitney songs of all time, and on the most important night of your life. I genuinely believe after everything you’ve done you absolutely, 100% deserve your place in the final.”

X Factor week 8

Week 8 on the X factor final and Stacey Solomon sang an amazing rendition of the ‘Take That’ all time classic ‘Rule The World’ and yet again she amazed and showed why she should be in the final. Stacey looked stunning tonight and its easy to see why Olly Murs has been after her for weeks . She is just he most lovable genuine sexy woman a guy could hope to meet.

cheek out Stacey Solomon singing Rule the World below

Stacey’s second song tonight was Elton John’s all time classic ‘‘Something About The Way You Look Tonight’ and although I thought it was great the judges didn’t seem to all agree. One thing I do think though is what the X Factor panel have said from day one – believe in your self a bit more Stacey – you are simply amazing and have such a wonderful voice

and here is what the judges had to sayabout the performances.


Danyl Johnson – ‘Relight My Fire’

Louis: “Danyl, what a great start to the show. You’ve proved you’re not just a one-trick pony. You can sing, you can dance, and Danyl, you deserve to be on that stage. I’m glad you’ve got your mojo back and I think you’re really talented. And round one, you won!”

Dannii: “That was an amazing production, an amazing performance, the choruses were bang on… the verses were pitchy for sure. And I’m not sure about the body rolls – the dance steps were great but I’m not sure about the body rolls!”

Cheryl: “It was as camp as Christmas but in a really fantastic way! I know how tough it is to sing and dance at the same time and you made it look pretty effortless, so well done Danyl.”

Simon: “Taking everything into account – the fact that it was an incredibly complicated routine and you were foot perfect and note perfect – I honestly think you really, really proved a point tonight. You are the type of artist who when anything is thrown at you, you just do it. You proved a point and I’m very, very happy with that performance.”


Lloyd Daniels – ‘Million Love Songs’

Louis: “Lloyd, the thing is you are in the final five so obviously people like you much more than I do. I think the song suited you a lot more than last week, I think you’re much improved, and I think your singing was pretty good – I don’t think it was great. It’s up to the public now to pick the best three people – I think you’ll struggle.”

Dannii: “Lloyd, a million girls out there want your phone number. You’re always putting on a great performance, you always bounce back, and you always come out fresh. I would just say don’t complicate your melodies because you’re making it difficult for yourself, and tuning-wise you were going off in the verses.”

Simon: “Look, Lloyd… it was a very, very good choice of song. A great choice of song. The lyrics are absolutely perfect for you, it’s a teen pop song, and I thought you sang it OK. This is what I’m going to say to you, because there are two songs tonight. What you’ve got to show us is, you’ve got to have fire in your eyes to show the audience you actually want to stay in this competition, because it was a little bit mechanical. So on the second song I want to see a bit more effort and commitment. You should be the happiest boy in the world. You wanted to be a popstar, you’re on the show, and I know the difference between walking it and really doing it.”

Cheryl: “I’ve got no doubt that in the second song you’re going to come out and show us just that. These lot [the audience] absolutely loved it and so did I.”


Olly Murs – ‘Love Ain’t Here Anymore’

Louis: “Olly, I still can’t believe you were in the bottom two – there’s no way you deserved to be in the bottom two. Everywhere I go girls are telling me how much they like you. I’m glad you’ve got your confidence back and that song totally suited you. It is a talent competition and I think you deserve to be in the final three.”

Dannii: “It’s kind of getting back on your horse after being in the bottom two and starting with a ballad, which is not your thing. I admire you for getting up there. But the sparkle was not quite in the eyes.”

Cheryl: “It’s really lovely to see everything stripped away and hear you sing. Sometimes I can’t hear you because these lot [the audience] are going nuts, but I’m looking forward to seeing round two and seeing you back in your stride.”

Simon: “I’d like to start with the girl you were singing to – I think she’s cute! I thought you did a great job tonight. You sung the song well, you emoted the song very well. I don’t think it was a song where it was appropriate to have a sparkle in your eye. I think it was about believing in it. And what happened last week – there was no sulking, no complaining, you just got on with it and proved why you should be here.”


Joe McElderry – ‘Could It Be Magic’

Louis: “Joe, it could have been magic and it was magic. Every week you get better and better and better. You’re turning out to be a real popstar. I loved the whole production, the musical arrangement… but Joe, seriously, you deserve to be in the final three.”

Dannii: “Joe, you are absolutely flying high. You took the opportunity to do a hard song, and I know you’ve been nervous this week and worried about the notes, but you absolutely smashed it. And I can picture you in the final, I can see that.”

Simon: “Joe, look, this is going to sound a bit repetitive because it was brilliant. What was so impressive was the way you managed to maturely navigate your way through the dancers and the production. You looked like you were in control, the production wasn’t in control of you. That production, Brian [Friedman], was absolutely fantastic. I’d also like to say, because they haven’t been mentioned much, the dancers are doing a brilliant job. But you, Joe, you, young man, were the star of that. Brilliant.”

Cheryl: “What can I say? Listen to that reaction! Honest to God, it was flawless. I absolutely love you to pieces. I hope to God everybody at home enjoyed it as much as we did and keeps you in.”


Stacey Solomon – ‘Rule The World’

Louis: “Stacey, I like you every week and nothing has changed this week. I think you’re getting and better, and what I really like about you is you don’t believe how good you are. You’re a really good singer and you so belong in the competition. I hope people vote for you. That was a very challenging song but you absolutely did it for me.”

Cheryl: “That was a challenging song – I don’t think people realise how hard it is for you to sing a male vocal or in your case a male group vocal when you’re female. And you are the only female left so represent!”

Simon: “The advantage you’ve got with a girl singing a guy’s song is it’s not going to sound like a karaoke version. I thought it was very believable and the perfect song choice for you. I thought it was better than your song last week because it was a more interesting song.”

Dannii: “Stacey, that was an amazing performance. You’re emerging as the true star of this show. I don’t think people realise how much you’ve grown week after week. There’s incredible support for Dagenham Stace and we love you.”


Lloyd Daniels – ‘I’m Still Standing’

Louis: “Lloyd, round one you kind of won me over, round two the song was called ‘I’m Still Standing’ – you’re just about standing there. It just didn’t look like you were having a good time and it was all a bit karaoke for me, honestly. And it was nice, but we’re not looking for nice anymore, we’re looking for a star.”

Dannii: “Lloyd, lyrically you’re definitely still standing, you’re proving a point there. It was a fantastic production. Vocally, it is still shaky on bits, but it was better than the first song. Much, much better.”

Simon: “God, none of us are in agreement tonight. I didn’t think it was as good as the first song. I thought it was a silly song choice. I think what Cheryl was trying to do with you with the retro routine didn’t suit you, it didn’t suit the song. It was like something from an amateur dramatics production and Cheryl, you’re a popstar. You understand what’s right for the artist and what’s right for the song. I thought that was inappropriate.”

Cheryl: “I also know how tough it is when you’ve been criticised week after week after week to come out and sing. I’m very, very proud of you for coming out and delivering each week when you’ve been criticised so much. So I hope people keep you in.”


Danyl Johnson – ‘Your Song’

Louis: “Danyl, what I like about you is you get criticism week after week but you always bounce back. You picked Elton’s most iconic song and made it your own – I liked everything about it except the choir. I don’t know why Simon gave you a choir, you don’t need a choir. With your voice and your looks you’ve got it all.”

Dannii: “That was a really great version of a really great song, and it was much, much better than the first song. Lots of good singing!”

Cheryl: “I think we’re seeing the Danyl we first fell in love with back at the audition process. You look more comfortable and you look more confident – it was good.”

Simon: “Cheryl, it wasn’t good, it was sensational. Sorry, that was what it’s all about. It’s doing something different with the song. And Louis, don’t be rude about having kids on the show. You’re like a dark cloud who blots out the sunshine. They’re little children who want to be on the show – let them!”


Olly Murs – ‘Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)’

Louis: “Olly, I loved you in round one, thought it was one of your best performances. It was an unusual song choice for you. I like your funny dancing, I like you, but there was something missing.”

Dannii: “Scrooge, move over. Round one was OK, round two was an absolute knockout. I’m really happy the grandpa suit’s gone, but you’ve got a sparkle in your eye. The song was absolutely made for you and very technically difficult – but it was absolutely a smash.”

Cheryl: “Firstly, I don’t know how you can concentrate with all those sexy girls around you, but you did it and you did it really well. I definitely agree with Dannii, that was a knockout performance.”

Simon: “Olly, it was the Olly we really loved from the beginning back in the competition. It was a great song, a great performance, and you really added something tonight – an extra 10, 15, 20%. You put your heart into it and made it sound like the song was written for you. I was nervous about this song today but I’m very, very happy.”


Joe McElderry – ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’

Louis: “Joe, you absolutely won round one for me and on that performance you absolutely won round two. You’ve got it all, you’ve got the voice, you’ve got the personality, you’ve got the likeability. I watch you grow every week. You were born to do this and you have to sail through to the final. People have to pick up their phones and vote for you. I like everything about you.”

Dannii: “There hasn’t been a song sung in this year’s competition with more passion than that. The feeling you have conveyed through the lyrics is just exceptional. I have to see you in the final – please vote for Joe.”

Simon: “I’m absolutely gobsmacked by that, I really am. I mean, you’ve got to remember this is what I do for a living, I run a record label. And I thought, like I said in the VT, that this was a safe choice. But something happened to you in a week. You changed, almost like a boy turned into a man. What you did with that song was so simple and so beautifully sung. It really felt like you were singing sincerely every lyric. By far my favourite ever performance of yours.”

Cheryl: “Joe, you’re a little star. Honest to God, you make me proud to be a Geordie. I’m so proud of you and I pray to God everyone keeps you in. You thoroughly deserve to be in that final.”


Stacey Solomon – ‘Something About The Way You Look Tonight’

Louis: “Stacey, you’re the last girl standing, and you certainly deserve to be in the final three. I wasn’t crazy about the song choice, I preferred you in round one to round two, but I like you an awful lot.”

Cheryl: “You looked slightly uncomfortable in parts there – I would be, you did have a lot to contend with, and under the circumstances I thought you did a great job, Stacey.”

Simon: “I’m going to tell you why I didn’t like that song like I did the first song. Why I didn’t like the second song is you’re not a singer like Leona or Alex, you’re not one of those big belting singers. What I loved about your audition was you had a different kind of voice – more subtle, cooler – I think that’s why I’d use a wedding singer comparison. That doesn’t do you justice. That’s a very different performance from the first song, which was more original, so I wish you’d reversed the order.”

Dannii: “Stacey, that was a brilliant performance. I push you week after week to do more and more. I really, really loved it. I don’t know what Simon’s going on about!”

X factor week seven

Stacey Solomon was simply amazing again this week and sailed through into next weeks X Factor

check out what the judges thught below

Lloyd Daniels – ‘Faith’

Dannii: “Lloyd, that was a great opening to the show. You look fantastic tonight – it’s like a whole reinvention. You’ve definitely got something that is the X factor and we can’t put our finger on it. I’m just hoping that each week the vocals keep going up and up, because where we are in the competition you need to have a wow moment. At the end of the song the falsetto was great – you need to use that more, that’s your trick.”

Louis: “Lloyd, I know you were under a lot of pressure this week because you were in the bottom two, but you came back fighting. I love your new haircut, I love your new image, I love everything – except the voice. I think you’re a real popstar, but I think you’re out of your depth now. I think there are better singers than you.”

Simon: “Actually, Lloyd, that surprised me because it wasn’t bad at all. I’m not saying it was the best vocal I’ve ever heard, but you look a lot better, you’re starting to perform to the public and it started to feel believable. Maybe you’ve started to believe in yourself. You stepped up in a week – very good.”

Cheryl: “It’s really amazing for me to watch you grow before my eyes. I feel like you’re turning into a little man. You look adorable and I think that was your best, most comfortable performance.”


Stacey Solomon – ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’

Louis: “Stacey, last week you absolutely stole the show, and I want everybody to know you are a great performer and there is nothing phoney about you. Whatever it is, star quality, you’ve definitely got it and I think you’re definitely going to make the final three. And Dannii picked a brilliant, brilliant song for you.”

Cheryl: “What’s happened now is your voice has become as big as your personality, and that’s what we were all waiting for. It was a great song choice, you just need to believe you can win now. You need to start believing you’re the winner because you could do it.”

Simon: “You are, as it showed in the film, one of the most genuinely nice people we’ve had on these shows. You really are, and I think you’ve turned into a little star. Do I think it was as good as last week? No, I don’t. It was a little bit mechanical in parts. The last part was very good, but the first part was a little bit clumsy. But there’s no question you’re going to be here next week. I’d be amazed if you weren’t.”

Dannii: “Stacey, that was such an elegant performance – so, so beautiful. I just have to say this show is all about dreams and making people’s dreams come true, and Cheryl’s right – you have to believe this could come true for you, because they [the audience] do.”


John & Edward – ‘I’m Your Man’

Dannii: “Wow guys. You look amazing. You know what really shocked me tonight – the singing was in tune and the rapping was out of time. I don’t know what’s happening now, I’m totally confused. It was fun…”

Cheryl: “Out of all the contestants you’ve been on the biggest and toughest rollercoaster, and no matter what happens you need to be really proud of yourself for coming this far.”

Simon: “I don’t think it was George and Andrew – it was Andrew and Andrew. But look, guys, it was a perfect song choice. I do think Louis is giving you too much to do. He’s turned you into his version of Action Man dolls. Every week, there’s crazy, crazy choreography.”

Louis: “Because they can do it! They never stop rehearsing. Everywhere I go young girls are shouting ‘Jedward, Jedward, Jedward’. These guys are connecting with them. I’m having the best time of my life working with you. But I need people to vote for you guys. This year would not be the same without them – we’d have no fun.”

Simon: “What I would say is you did have quite a hard time at the start and you have converted a lot of people. I think you’ve done that just by being relentless. You’re like an unstoppable machine at the moment.”


Danyl Johnson – ‘Careless Whisper’

Dannii: “Danyl, that is one of my all time favourite songs, a classic. I think Simon did the right thing by choosing a really original version of that for you – it was a wise move and you sang it perfectly.”

Louis: “Danyl, there’s no doubt you can sing anything, but I think you tried too hard tonight. I would have preferred a different arrangement. You’re a great singer but I think you’re trying too hard and I think Simon is making it very difficult for you.”

Cheryl: “I’ve got to be really honest with you, Danyl. Parts of that were really flat. The start was exposed because the track is so bare. But I think your image and performance are always fantastic.”

Simon: “Well, Cheryl, I think we were listening to two different songs there, I genuinely do. Because why that was so good, in my opinion, was that that is what is called respecting the song. Taking it, listening to it, and most importantly doing something original with it. No doubt Louis would have had you up in the scaffolding in a T-shirt. How can you say I tried too hard? By the way, to clear something up Danyl, you are 100% right to have chosen that song. It was your decision and it was the right decision.”


Olly Murs – ‘Fast Love’

Dannii: “Olly, Olly, Olly – Essex must be going mad for you tonight. You’re always polished and you know how to rock the audience. That’s a particularly hard song to sing, because you have to tune into the bass line. The first half did have tuning problems, but once you got into the higher register you were really kicking through so just watch that.”

Louis: “I loved everything about your performance. You have the potential to be the new popstar up there with Robbie, Gary, Will Young and the others. You’re a natural mover, and there’s nothing fake about you – everything about Olly Murs is real. You’ve got the potential to win this competition.”

Cheryl: “You know what the best thing about you is, Olly? You’ve got really broad appeal. Young lads think you’re cool and want to knock about with you, girls love you, kids like you. There’s no fuss about you, you get your head down and get the job done. You always come out and deliver. I really like you Olly, and I wish you all the best. And I really enjoyed your performance.”

Simon: “You’re going to have no problems with the chicks when you leave the competition! You are turning into a really, really, really good, fearless performer. You did something original, you put that difficult dance break in the middle. I see a huge, huge improvement in you week after week, it’s great.”


Joe McElderry – ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’

Dannii: “Joe, four judges standing for you! That was exceptional. And it’s kind of weird – when you first walked out I could see you were nervous. You don’t need to be. You have such passion and a real honesty to your voice. I love you. You deserve to be here and I would love to see you in the final.”

Louis: “That was definitely the best performance of the night vocally, in every way. The thing I like about you is you show up and do your job. There’s never a problem with you. You’ve got a great appeal, like Olly. I think you could be a UK Michael Bublé. The only problem is the songs were George Michael songs and Madam here [Cheryl Cole] broke the rules – that’s an Elton John song. George Michael sang a little bit of it but it was a hit for Elton.”

Simon: “Here’s a new rule – we’re going to stop you from speaking. Because after this young kid gets up on stage, does the performance of his life and absolutely 100% nailed the song – and you’ve got the audacity to sit there with your silly, stupid little rulebook again and say he only sang half the song… who cares? Who cares what you think? I’ve got to tell you, Joe, I take a little bit of credit for this because I told you in rehearsals to give it that extra 10% and you did, so congratulations.”

Cheryl: “Joe, you just stole the show. You absolutely smashed it and I couldn’t be more proud of you. I could absolutely burst with pride when I watch you. You’re adorable, I love watching you, and here’s to the final.”

Son Of A Preacher Man

X Factor Week Five Stacey Solomon

As much as i like Stacey I can’t help but think this song was not for her, don’t get me wrong she was great as ever and looking very sexy to boot. Anyway check out the video below and also the X Factor judges comments


Stacey Solomon – ‘Son Of A Preacher Man’

Louis: “Stacey, that was a great start to the show. I love Dusty Springfield, I love your new sexy look, you’ve definitely got personality and if the show was based on personality you’d walk it. However, I did think the song lacked a little bit of emotion.”

Cheryl: “It’s lovely to see you looking so sexy, young, cool – that’s what you should be, you’re a young girl. That’s the most confident-looking performance you’ve done so far.”

Simon: “I’m going to disagree with Cheryl, because I would call that a typical talent show competition, insomuch as it’s like eating Chinese food – you don’t feel anything afterwards, you still feel hungry. I just don’t think that was a particularly good performance. I thought it was a lazy song choice, and I think, for the first time since you’ve been in the competition, I think you’re vulnerable after that. I do.”

Dannii: “All I have to say is it shows how out of touch Simon Cowell is. That’s the best reaction you’ve had from the audience and I know people at home will love it. I know you had a problem with the word ‘sex’ – you can’t even say it! – but you’re flirty, young, cute, everything the song should be. You have the authentic tones of Dusty Springfield and it was cool – it’s what Duffy or Amy [Winehouse] would have done. Thank you, it was brilliant.”


Olly Murs – ‘Twist And Shout’

Louis: “Olly, I loved your performance last week, everybody likes you, you’re definitely one of the strongest contestants, but I liked when you were singing, I wasn’t crazy about the silly dancing. I think Simon picked a really, really silly song for a great, great singer. You’re better than that. Simon, why the silly song?”

Dannii: “Olly, you sang beautifully, it was a great performance, but something looks like you didn’t believe in the song. I don’t know what it was. And why go into Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ routine halfway through?”

Cheryl: “If you haven’t seen the movie it did look random. Olly, you only have to listen to [the audience’s] reaction. That went down a storm. But you are singing a lot of retro songs. One thing I want to do now is get you singing something contemporary.”

Simon: “Unfortunately, guys, the audience are speaking, and as for your comment, Louis, about this being a silly song – it’s one of The Beatles’ biggest hits! I honestly think where all of you have been quite mean tonight is he put on a great show. It’s called entertainment, and Olly, you are fantastic.”


Lloyd Daniels – ‘Stand By Me’

Louis: “Well, Lloyd, the good news is it’s much better than you were last week. Three weeks ago you were the cute kid in the competition, but at this stage I think you’re out of your depth, I don’t think you’re good enough. There are four better guy singers than you. Sorry.”

Dannii: “Lloyd, you’re a very, very cute guy and it was a cute performance. I thought vocally it was well chosen for you because there’s a certain range you can sing in and you can’t go above it. You lost it a bit when you came off the high note – I think you got so excited you got there that you lost your tuning. It was a nice performance.”

Simon: “It was nice like having tea with your mum – which I do like doing, mum, I love it. The point is, I think right now you’re out of your depth to be honest. You’re competing against big, big singers and it kind of feels to me you’re giving up a little bit at the moment. The second part when it went young, your age group, it was okay, but your voice isn’t big enough.”

Cheryl: “That’s unfair – he’s come back, he was in the bottom two, so yes he is down on his confidence. That’s normal, he’s had a knock. I thought it was the most comfortable vocal you’ve done so far. We did make it young, it was funky, cool – I don’t want to make you cheesy because you’re cooler than that.”


Jamie Archer – ‘Crying’

Louis: “Jamie, I am so glad that you dropped all the silly rock stuff. It was a great song, a very, very emotional performance, your best performance yet and the song absolutely suited you, but Simon, I don’t know the movie it’s from (Gummo). I think you’re cheating again. We all picked songs from big movies and stuck to the rules. I loved the song but I think you’re cheating.”

Dannii: “Jamie, that was an emotional performance, it was heartfelt. It was not the pub rocker. This is what we were saying last week – that’s what we want to see. Maybe you need to choose the songs.”

Cheryl: “I think Simon did you well changing the song, because I think ‘Unchained Melody’ would have been absolutely disastrous for you – that song’s cheesy, in my opinion. I think [‘Crying’] suited you brilliantly and I think you sang from your heart.”

Simon: “I have to say, this is all about you, Jamie. You chose that song, and this performance was all about you. I think it was your best performance by a mile. Congratulations.”


Lucie Jones – ‘This Is Me’

Louis: “That was a fantastic song choice. It’s not an obvious song, but it’s very cool, very contemporary. You look like a popstar and you remind me of one of those American girls like Taylor Swift. I predict you’re going to be the last girl standing. You’ve got star quality.”

Cheryl: “I think you’ve found your niche. I wasn’t familiar with the song choice, but it could have been your song. You just need to loosen up, let it be, enjoy it a little bit more because at times you don’t look like you’re enjoying it as much as you should. But I think you’ve definitely found where you should be.”

Simon: “This is the first time, for me, that you have made yourself relevant as a pop artist, because now the song and you are working. This is where we’ve had a problem, it’s all been a bit karaoke, bit this, bit that. But that looked comfortable. It’s not a well known song, but it’s a good song and I actually agree with what Louis just said – I think now you’re the strongest girl in the competition.”

Dannii: “All I can add is I’m not the only person who loves Lucie! That was a beautiful, beautiful performance.”


Danyl Johnson – ‘Purple Rain’

Louis: “Danyl, very few people can sing a Prince song and do it justice, but tonight you came out there and absolutely won everybody over. It’s hard to sing Prince and you deserve to be in the competition. You’re a talented guy and if we’re judging on vocal ability, you’ve got it all. I think you’re going to be in the final.”

Dannii: “Danyl, I love the new look. It’s a much, much better look. That was a really, really good performance. I loved the bit when you went into falsetto at the end… I don’t love it when you scream too much at the end. Your voice is very, very good, but you need to really, really use it. Don’t scream too much – it doesn’t do you justice.”

Cheryl: “I really like your demeanour tonight. You’ve lost the cocky attitude you had at the beginning but you’re not the broken man we saw last week. You’re somewhere in between – it’s nice. I like the hair, I love the hair!”

Simon: “I know I’m repeating myself, but I’ve got to say this again because it’s important to remember the context of the real world. That was an outstanding vocal, it was. I really, really mean this. I think this show has found a great, great singer who was almost broken, who has now got his confidence back up, and we should be proud of you, we should be supporting you, because I think you could go on to have a great career. I’m very proud of you, Danyl, well done.”


John & Edward – ‘Ghostbusters Theme’

Dannii: “I have no idea what I’m meant to be commenting on. I’ve honestly got no idea about anything constructive to say. It’s a singing competition – you either talk or you rap. I’m wondering what you’d release if you won. I love watching you perform but I can’t imagine listening to you on the radio.”

Cheryl: “You know what, you bring fun to this show. Whether people like you or whether people don’t, it’s fun to watch and you know, kids from like 3 to 10 absolutely adore you so good on you for getting up there.”

Simon: “Look, guys, I think we’ve established over the past few weeks that you can’t sing, but this was actually a good song for you. You actually did choose the right song for them, Louis, because based on some of the horrors we’ve seen before this was sort of good in a very childish way. I thought it was actually more entertaining than some of the karaoke stuff we saw before, so well done.”

Louis: “Guys, all I know is everywhere I go people are talking about Jedward. Every week you come out smiling, happy, and I haven’t had one problem with you. The world is full of doom and gloom and these guys are having fun. That’s what this show’s all about – fun.”


Joe McElderry – ‘Circle Of Life’

Louis: “Joe, you’re definitely one of the best singers in the competition, you tick all the boxes. But as Simon said in the VT I think you’re more musical theatre than popstar and we’re looking for a popstar. I think the song was a little bit predictable, a little bit safe. I think you’re better, you’ve got more potential than that.”

Dannii: “Coming from you with John & Edward, we’re looking for a popstar! Joe, you’re the best male vocalist in the competition, hands down. You’re the most likeable, most beautiful guy. The only thing I would critique is your voice is strong and that’s what musical theatre is, but I didn’t like the production. It was like Les Mis mixed with The Lion King. I love it when you just perform the song and I think that was detracting from it.”

Simon: “Joe, I thought that was the perfect song for you. It’s what you’re all about. I actually liked the production. The only thing I didn’t like was you’ve got to stop this kind of stage school swaying. You’ve got to have confidence to take the mic and believe in yourself. I don’t think you’re the best male singer in the competition. Having said that, I think you’re commercial, I think you know who you are, and I think you should enjoy this moment. That was very good.”

Cheryl: “Every week I love working with you even more. You’re starting to feel like a little brother to me and I’m so proud to watch you up there. Well done.”

Stacey Solomon week3 Xfactor What The Judges said

Olly Murs – ‘Bewitched’

Louis: “Olly, you are the dark horse of this competition. I watched you at home and you’re getting better and better. I liked that you didn’t pick a predictable song, you picked an unusual song. It was fantastic. You’re the boy next door, you can sing, you can dance, and you’re very, very likeable. You’re here for a long time.”

Dannii: “My friend, that was one classy big band performance. Olly the entertainer. You’ve been working with [Michael] Bublé, who has spent years working at the craft of milking every word and phrase, and you did that as well as all the dancing. I absolutely loved it.”

Cheryl: “What I love about you is you’re really coming into your own each week and growing a little bit more. I think I’m going to thoroughly enjoy watching you throughout this process. You get better and better each week.”

Simon: “Once again, you’re back in your comfort zone. I loved the two dancers – I know what it’s like working with two witches. Joke! And you know, girls [Cheryl and Dannii], it’s not about being smug, it’s about looking after your contestants. What we’ve been able to sort out is what kind of artist you should be. The whole point in making big band work is you’ve got to have style, you’ve got to have charisma, and you’ve got to have confidence. You scored on all three.”


Lloyd Daniels – ‘Fly Me To The Moon’

Louis: “Lloyd, little Lloyd from Wales, I’m a big supporter of you. I know big band’s not really, really your thing. If I was doing a boyband in the morning, I’d put you as the lead singer, but I think you need to be in a band. I think as a solo artist you’re a bit lost. I don’t think you’ve got the confidence. And I’ve never seen Frank Sinatra do a backflip, so I don’t think the backflip was great.”

Dannii: “I totally disagree! I think the backflip was entertaining. Somewhere halfway through you hit your stride and got comfortable. But up until halfway I was looking in your eyes and you were doubting yourself a little. It took confidence to get back on your feet and big band is not your strength. You need to be filling every phrase of the song, not waiting until the big note and you get it.”

Simon: “I think your issue is you’ve got to get some confidence. It was quite obvious at the start you didn’t have much confidence. You were looking over at Cheryl for confidence. When you’re good, you’re very good. There were tiny moments in the song where I thought you were very good. Having said that, doing a backflip when singing ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ is like eating a sandwich while swimming. You don’t do the two together, it doesn’t work. I think you’ve got to sort your head out right now. One thing we don’t do is patronise and you’ve got to get better.”

Cheryl: “The criticism last week knocked you. I totally get it. I watched it back and thought you were fantastic, by the way. Tonight was about coming out here and having fun. The backflip was a bit of fun and showed the youth in the song, and these lot [the audience] absolutely loved it!”


Miss Frank – ‘That’s Life’

Dannii: “Girls, all I have to say tonight is you are back in the race! You really came back tonight with your strength and what made you unique in the first place. Shar, you stepped up.”

Cheryl: “I absolutely loved it. This is why we loved you in the beginning. You updated a classic and gave it attitude. Graziella, I loved your rap and this is what you’re about. This needs to continue, it’s what makes you original. Absolutely fantastic.”

Simon: “This is the first time since the live shows when I actually started to believe in you as a group. You look completely different to what you did last week. You look fantastic, you sounded much better and I can actually now see some chemistry between the three of you. What I like about you, particularly you, Graziella, is that you can take criticism, unlike others, on the chin. There’s no point kidding yourself, it wasn’t good last week, and you understood that and came back fighting. It was a million times better and I genuinely hope you stay in the competition.”

Louis: “Girls, all I can say is I’m really proud of you. I watched you from home last week, it wasn’t great, but you’re a different group tonight. You look like a world class girl group and there’s a big gap in the market. Graziella, I loved your rap, Shar and Shaniece you were brilliant. All I need now is for people to vote for you. I believe in you. Fantastic.”


Rachel Adedeji – ‘Proud Mary’

Louis: “Rachel, I could not believe last week you were in the bottom two. I can’t understand, you’re an amazing singer. You own the stage. I’m glad you’ve got your confidence back. People, give Rachel a chance, she deserves to be on this stage. Pick up the phone and vote.”

Cheryl: “You’ve got guts, you’ve got determination, you’re full of personality, and most of all you can sing, girl! You know what, whenever I speak to my boys about who they get on with, it’s you they’re always talking about. Hope tonight is your night and the public vote for you, because you deserve to be in the competition.”

Simon: “I’ve got no idea who you are because you’re not the person we’ve been seeing for the past two weeks. Literally, it’s like seeing a brand new competitor. The last two weeks you were acting Louis’s age, to be honest. You’ve been too serious. You’ve lost the silly haircut and started to have fun. It was a great vocal, a superb performance, and for the very, very first time I’m starting to see the person you really are. And again, no whining. You just came back and proved a point. I think you are in with a shot now. Congratulations.”

Dannii: “Rachel, that’s how it’s done! I just want to thank you for putting up with me. I don’t think I’ve got it right with you up until now. I’m listening to the criticism, taking it on board and putting it into your performance. I know you do the rest so easily, so thank you, thank you, thank you.”


Jamie Archer – ‘Angel Of Harlem’

Louis: “Jamie, I’m a little bit confused. The theme this week is big band and you come out and sing a U2 song. It’s not big band, Bono wouldn’t want it filed under big band. I know your mentor Simon changed the song, but I feel like it’s cheating on everyone else. You’re a great performer but that was like a karaoke version of a U2 song. I don’t think it’s fair. I don’t blame you, I’m blaming Simon. There are rules in the show. I wouldn’t get away with it and neither would the girls.”

Dannii: “It was rich, you’re a true pro to get up and do that. I don’t think it had the magic of last week, but you’re a great performer. You can own the stage just by yourself.”

Cheryl: “It’s really tough to have 24 hours to learn a song, come out and perform. I’ve got to give it to you for that. Parts of the song I thought, ‘Wow, it’s really going somewhere’, but to be totally honest with you it didn’t excite me as much as last week. But well done for coming out and singing it.”

Simon: “I agree with what they said. It wasn’t as good as last week, but that’s because we had 24 hours to prepare. I think I made the right decision. I think you lost your way at one point towards the end, but for Louis to sit here like someone who works for the council with a silly little rule book… I don’t think [Louis] is in a position to preach to us about musical taste knowing about the two horrors [John & Edward] who are about to come up.”


Stacey Solomon – When You Wish Upon A Star

Louis: “Stacey, all I can say is wow. What a transformation. I loved your song, I loved the song choice. It was incredible. You definitely got the emotion, and everybody loves you, Stacey. Everybody loves you.”

Cheryl: “I’ll start off by saying you look like a little princess! You look absolutely beautiful in that dress. For me it wasn’t the best I’ve heard you sing, but I still enjoyed it because I just love you, Stacey.”

Simon: “I agree with Cheryl, I think you looked better than you sounded. I really, really, really do like you. I know when I criticise you everyone boos, but I want you to do well. I thought it was just a bit robotic, but the second half was better. So you’ve got to learn to perform songs. At the moment all you’re doing is standing the middle and singing. You’re not doing anything else.”

Dannii: “I think I should explain that you had your hardest week this week. Stacey came to me and locked the door and was in floods of tears. Everybody has a week where they hit the wall. I’m so proud of you for getting up there and doing it. I know you can do it. No-one appreciates this more than you do.”


Danyl Johnson – ‘Feeling Good’

Louis: “Danyl, some people were born to sing and entertain and you’re absolutely one of them. You owned the stage and took on a really big song. I think you’re unstoppable in this competition and I think it was the most authentic performance of the night.”

Dannii: “Danyl, I have a lot of respect for you for making that your version. It’s been covered many times but that was very good. And you look hot!”

Cheryl: “You look the part, you sounded the part, it was a great song choice. It was another great performance for Danyl Johnson.”

Simon: “I think we’ve got to remind ourselves what we’re looking for on the show. We’re trying to find someone who can represent this country all over the world, and I don’t think you’ve had enough credit in the competition so far. Week after week you go out there and give 150%, and in my opinion that was in a completely different league to anything else we’ve heard so far.”


Joe McElderry – ‘Sway’

Louis: “Joe, I know you were so nervous. I want to tell everyone at home you’re one of the nicest contestants. Backstage, you’re always so nice. You’ve absolutely got likeability. You’re going to be in the competition until the very, very end.”

Dannii: “Yes, you’re such a nice guy, you sing perfectly every time and no-one makes me smile more, honestly. You managed the snake hips very well! It’s just that your other performances, you’ve taken on mature songs, and maybe with the older dancers you looked like a little boy. It’s not a bad thing, you’re cute and it won’t go against you. Please stay in the competition.”

Simon: “I have to hand it to you. Whatever’s thrown at you, you rise to the challenge. You sang very well. I didn’t think the performance was particularly authentic – you’ve got about as much Latin flair as a dolphin, because that’s not you. The important thing with you, because you are going to be in the competition next week, is you’ve got to prove you’re a recording artist and not just a cutesy performer. There is a difference.”

Cheryl: “I think you showed you can sing in the last two weeks, and tonight you showed you can perform. It was sparkly, sexy, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved it.”


Lucie – ‘My Funny Valentine’

Louis: “Lucie, there must be something in the water in Wales, because they keep churning out great performers. That was a great, amazing performance. It’s a classic song and there were no tricks, no dancing, no dancers. You did the hardest thing – it was just you and your voice. It was an incredible performance.”

Cheryl: “I have to say, Lucie, in the past two weeks something was not connecting, but tonight you absolutely proved me wrong. That was stunning. Beautiful. It was effortless, all over your face, it was authentic. Just beautiful. That’s the first thing that’s given me goosebumps tonight, well done.”

Simon: “I thought it was a very, very good vocal. Far, far better than what we’ve heard before. Having said that, you sang it like an actress. I didn’t get what I wanted to get out of it. It was a good performance, but I don’t know what it was. It’s difficult to describe. It was a great vocal… maybe it was just a vocal.”

Dannii: “Can I just say, that was just sensational. It was classy, it was the best performance, and I want to thank Cheryl for her comments last week. I don’t think I chose the right things for you before, but this was amazing. I don’t appreciate Simon’s comments – you cannot fault that performance. He’s scared of you!”


John & Edward – ‘She Bangs’

Dannii: “Well, guys, that was some performance. I mean, you are the luckiest brothers ever – those girls were hot around you! You know what, I’m really torn here because I don’t know what to say. The singing isn’t of the standard that’s going to follow Alexandra Burke to win the show but it’s entertaining. I don’t want you to take a spot away from my girls but you know, it was a great performance.”

Cheryl: “John and Edward… Right. OK. You know what, you are two of the nicest kids I’ve ever met. I think the boos are pantomime, don’t take it on board. You know what, you’re becoming my guilty pleasure. Each week I can’t wait to see what you’re going to come out with next.”

Simon: “I don’t think I can do this anymore. OK, let me try and be constructive here… and I’m struggling. Look, if you heard it on the radio, it would probably be one of the worst things you ever heard, but I give you some credit for at least putting on a show and having fun. But then I take it back to being a singing competition, and this is appalling.”

Louis: “Simon, it is a TV show. You’re never going to please all the people all of the time. Simon signed an act once called Zig and Zag, and you’re better than them! You’re getting better and it was your best performance yet. Some people are rude in the audience. Some people like them and some people are going to vote for them.”

Stacey Solomon X Factor Final

Stacey Solomon was amazing tonight but already there seems to be a bit of a internet back stabbing nature brewing – just because this is one very very sexy young lady who is a bit animated and quirky = according to them they feel the need to have a dig.

Come on leave her alone Stacey Solomon is a nice person who is just trying to pursue her dreams and to sing and come on – get over it because she can sing very well.

I wasn’t 100% convinced her new image was right for her but you know what Stacey it doesn’t matter because you have the voice.

In true X Factor style I can see Stacey in a boob tube soon to show off her amazing figure- one week this one week that, but I can tell you she is stunning no matter what they make her dress in.

I dont care what other people say about her personality – I think its great
