Stacey Solomon out of X Factor

Gutted, tonight Stacey Solomon finished third place on this year X Factor but she really does have the xtra factor and I sure we will see much more of her.
Stacey performed ‘Who Wants To Live Forever’, ‘Wonderful World’ and ‘Feeling Good’ but received the fewest amount of public votes
After hearing the result Stacey said: “I came third, that’s really good. I’m really proud. I’ve had the time of my life. Thanks to everyone who kept me here to the final.”
Dannii Minogue added: “It’s been an incredible journey. I’ve made an amazing friend. I’d just like to thank everyone who supported her – she’s an absolute talent and a star.”
Tomorrow Joe McElderry and Olly Murs will battle for the X Factor title tomorrow
I am sure Stacey will have a bright future ahead of her

and now what the judges thought


Stacey Solomon – ‘Wonderful World’

Louis: “Stacey Solomon – what a transformation. Who would have thought you’d have come all that way from the first audition? I love everything about you, I love your voice, I love your personality, you’ve got everything and people love you. You so deserve to be in the final three and I can’t believe you don’t know how good you are because you’re great.”

Cheryl: “I’m so happy to see you up there in the final three. It’s amazing because the pressure is on tonight but it’s lovely to see you enjoying yourself the most ever, you look so comfortable.”

Simon: “I totally agree with Cheryl. You were sort of turning into a nervous wreck over the last couple of weeks – now you’re a calm nervous wreck who’s singing beautifully. I’m so happy you sang that song again because it takes me back to the first time we met you. You surprised me then and you continue to surprise me. And you thoroughly, thoroughly deserve your place here tonight.”

Dannii: “Stacey, it’s just been the most emotional week ever and I’m very, very, very, very proud of you. From the girl who walked on stage in a little pair of shorts… it’s great to see you smiling and enjoying all the support you’ve had, so well done.”


Olly Murs – ‘Superstition’

Louis: “Olly, oh my God! Not many people can sing Stevie Wonder. You’re the boy from Essex with the silly dance we all love. When you watch that VT it just shows you’ve definitely got the X factor. You can sing, you can dance, you’re likeable – I love it.”

Dannii: “Olly, what a fantastic performance. That’s just such a great song for you and it’s so good to see you singing that again. And Brian [Friedman], that was spectacular. Brilliant.”

Cheryl: “There’s something in the air tonight – everyone’s that little bit calmer and more comfortable. That was something you’d see at a concert. You’re an entertainer and you thoroughly deserve your place in the final.”

Simon: “Olly, I said in the beginning I took a risk on you. It was the best risk I’ve ever taken in my life. I’ve got to tell you, on the biggest night of your life you just pulled out the performance of your life. Congratulations.”


Joe McElderry – ‘Dance With My Father’

Louis: “Joe, I remember that first audition so well. You came out and sang Luther Vandross and you absolutely got me there. Since then you’ve got better and better and better. You’ve got an incredible voice – this competition is about finding someone with the voice and you’ve got the voice. I predict your future is going to change – you’ve got it all, man.”

Dannii: “Joe, you’re a brilliant performer, you’ve got an amazing voice. What an adorable young man. It’s been incredible to see you throughout the whole competition – you never let us down.”

Simon: “Dannii’s right – you don’t just deserve credit for tonight, you deserve credit for everything you’ve done. You’re a great example of someone who can be talented, such a nice person, and I really, really want you to do well because I like you, Joe, and I think you deserve to be in the final tomorrow night.”

Cheryl: “This is the moment you stole my heart, the first time you sung this. And meeting your family… you’re an absolute testament to your mam and dad. They’re some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and for them and for you, Joe, I pray you’re in the final tomorrow night.”


Stacey Solomon – ‘Feeling Good’ (with Michael Bublé)

Michael Bublé: “Can you not tell how much fun we just had? You were great, beautiful.”

Dermot O’Leary: “And do you think Stacey deserves to be in the final?”

Bublé: “Oh, absolutely. Absolutely.”


Olly Murs – ‘Angels’ (with Robbie Williams)

Robbie Williams: “I am a massive fan of Olly. I’ve been watching every week, he entertains me. I love his voice, I love his character. I’m a big, big fan of Olly. I can’t believe how confident this man is, he’s like a quiet storm. It’s unbelievable. I should be taking tips from him. He should give 110% tonight, maybe 111%, if at all possible 112% but it’s never been done on television before.”


Joe McElderry – ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’ (with George Michael)

George Michael: “I think you rose to the occasion, I would say – fantastic. I think he’s got a great future. I think I’d like to say also that I wish good luck to all three contestants. It’s an amazing amount of pressure they have to deal with and they have to meet people like us on the same night. Good luck for tomorrow.”


Stacey Solomon – ‘Who Wants To Live Forever’

Louis: “Stacey, that was vocally incredible. It was definitely your best song from the whole series. Very few people can sing Freddie Mercury so well. You’ve been consistent right through the series and I hope you’re in the final tomorrow.”

Cheryl: “Stacey, you look incredible, you sounded incredible and I’ve got my fingers crossed you’re in the final two tomorrow.”

Simon: “As Cheryl has said frequently in this competition – you smashed it.”

Dannii: “Stacey, that was another incredible, incredible performance. I’m so happy for you, so proud of you, and I definitely want to see you voted into the top two tomorrow night.”


Olly Murs – ‘Fool In Love’

Louis: “Olly, that was my favourite song of yours from the whole series. You’re sexy, soulful, a showman, you own the stage, you’re a natural talent… I don’t know how the people at home are going to pick tonight. I hope you’re here tomorrow, Olly, because you’ve got it all. I think you’ve got the X factor.”

Dannii: “That was definitely your best performance from the series, it was so good to see it again. I loved it.”

Cheryl: “It was amazing to see the improvement from the first time you sung it – and that was only a few weeks ago. You sang that like it was your last opportunity and I wish you the very best of luck.”

Stacey: “Olly, I would just like to say I really hope it isn’t the last time you’re singing. Three months ago you were working in an office, you dreamt about being a popstar. I’ve got to know you really well, I’ve got to know your family, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with you. As a person I’m so proud of you, Olly, for what you’ve achieved. I’m really happy I chose you to be in my top twelve, so thank you.”


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

Louis: “Geordie Joe, you never, ever let us down. Joe, you’ve got the voice, we’re looking for a voice, we’re looking for someone who’s going to be a recording artist. I love everything about you. When I meet you backstage you’re so humble, so nice, but you’re still a popstar. I think you’re a natural popstar and of the three people left I think you deserve to be here tomorrow night.”

Dannii: “That was an absolutely stunning performance – you don’t need to be nervous at all standing up there. I’m so proud of you and you definitely need to be in the final two.”

Simon: “We’ve said all through the competition that you are, I think, really special, Joe. And you chose that song as your final song, to prove what a great singer you’ve become, and that you could be a potential popstar. You’ve had an incredible night, Joe, and I’m very happy for you.”

Cheryl: “I just want to take this opportunity to say I absolutely adore you. I’ve loved getting to know you and I feel we’ve really made a strong bond. I can’t bear the thought that that could have been your last song, and if there’s any justice in the world you’ve got to be in the final two. There’s been a lot of talk about you being the favourite and the bookies saying you’re the one to win, but I just want to let people know that if they loved that as much as I did, they have to pick up the phone.”

Stacey Solomon is was seen with her mentor Dannii Minogue buying a McDonald’s and there is even rumours that she will be playing a secret gig some where in the town.

Joe McElderry returned to South Shields and was mobbed by hundreds of his fans. He went for a tour around the North-East yesterday, Cheryl Cole accompanied him as he met his old friends at Harton Technology College.

Olly Murs – not much news on him but he is expected to spend time this week in Witham, Essex, . Olly used to work in a call centre there as an energy advisor.

I also stumbled across this on the net which i though was rather amusing, Simon Cowells first television in on appearance on crappy 90’s TV quiz show “Sale of the Century” – enjoy 🙂
