Stacey Solomon Future dreams

The X Factor may be over but Stacey Solomon has revealed its still her dream to be a success

Stacey as we all know came third and stated she has a backup plan in case there are no record deals

“I don’t know why people are interested in me – I mean, it’s not as if I won, is it?” she told the Daily Mail. “I want to be a successful singer, and if I work hard, with luck maybe someone will offer me a recording contract, or the chance to do some singing.”

She added: “If, God forbid, nothing comes out of this then I will just have to go back to college to learn how to teach people to sing. Then at least singing will still be my job.”

Stacey previously admitted she was scared of fading into obscurity, its hard to imagine when she can put on such performances as the one below

She went on to talk about John and Edward aka Jedward, and added”I love Jedward,” she said. “There is not one bad bone in their body, and I just think that good things should happen to good people.

“Everything they say is completely honest and just the first thing that comes out of their head, and I am the same. I just say what I feel, I don’t think about what I am saying, and I wouldn’t want to be someone who did.”

She added: “John and Edward are so refreshing, so clean-minded, so innocent.”

Jedward have recently confirmed rumours and they are making a debut single.

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.”

Queen Week 6

This week was Queen week on the X Factor and Stacey Solomon  is also feeling under pressure as the only girl left in the competition! But with a huge song where she can exercise her voice and really show off her talents, this week Stacey was simply amazing and easily the best performance in the X Factor, Stacey Solomon sang the Queen classic  “Who Wants to Live Forever”. Original Queen members guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor who had been mentoring this week where simply blown away by Staceys performance.

I also Though you might like to see Freddie Mercury perform the amazing original

And here is what he judeges has to say about all the remaining contestants

Jamie Archer – ‘Radio Gaga’

Dannii: “Jamie, you really know how to get the crowd going – we certainly saw that tonight. They absolutely love you. In some ways, that was a brilliant song choice – it’s what you do and they love it – but in other ways, it didn’t show off your vocal ability to what I know you can do.”

Louis: “It was a good song choice, it’s a crowd-pleasing song. But we’re looking for someone who’s going to sell millions of records, and I think you’re totally out of your depth. That just showed you’re a singer with a small voice and very big hair.”

Cheryl: “I think it’s always tough being first up, and I think you kicked off the show well. It was a good song choice, and I really like you, Jamie. I don’t like your hair, I have to be honest, not curly. I like it when it’s frizzy. And I’m glad you got rid of the jeans this week.”

Simon: “For you, what I know you want to achieve, the fact that you met Queen, the guys have given you an endorsement, and that was an incredible reaction from the crowd… you’ll be happy.”


Lloyd Daniels – ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’

Dannii: “I think you’re going to want to hear this so I’m just waiting for the audience to quieten down – I think you’ve now arrived. That was your best performance.”

Louis: “That was so much better than last week, because I didn’t think you were very good last week, but this was much better. You looked like you were having a good time. It’s very hard for a 16-year-old kid to do Queen. Much improved, but you have to do better next week.”

Simon: “I sort of agree with the others. It’s a little bit like a puppy taking part in the Grand National – it’s too big for you, but you’re having fun at the same time. I do think, however, it was actually better than last week’s performance, mainly because you started to lighten up a bit. Now you’re having a good time.”

Cheryl: “I’ve loved watching you this week – I’ve really seen you come into your own. This is what I was talking about, this is the experience you need to build on your confidence. I really think the penny dropped for you this week and I’m excited to see what we can do now.”


Olly Murs – ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’

Dannii: “That put such a smile on my face. You’re absolutely the best performer we have on the show by far. Your dance moves are absolutely incredible. I would say that musically it swallowed up your vocals. You know I’ve always loved your vocals – just be really careful the track doesn’t take over.”

Louis: “That was an electrifying performance, everything about it. You’re the person everyone has to beat. You remind me of Robbie, Gary Barlow, Will Young but probably better. You’ve got it all.”

Cheryl: “You’re one of the people I can’t wait to see each week. You’ve got charm and a cheeky little edge to you. I think you’re here for the long haul, I honestly do.”

Simon: “Bearing in mind you nearly broke your arm, you came back in, you don’t whinge about it. For once I agree with Louis. Watching this tonight you are reminding me of Robbie, because you’ve got an ability to always entertain. You always give 100% and I think this competition has been very, very good for you because you’re growing in confidence. Every single time you give 150% and you did great tonight.”


Joe McElderry – ‘Somebody To Love’

Dannii: “Somebody to love? If that’s the question, the answer is Joe McElderry. That was fantastic. That’s one of the biggest Queen songs – it’s hard for Freddie Mercury to sing and he can sing everything! You bring it on every week, brilliant.”

Louis: “That was a really, really big song for a little guy from the North of England. You did a great, great job, I love your stagecraft. But I think the choir helped you an awful lot. You’re maybe breaking the rules with the choir – I think it certainly helped you.”

Simon: “I’m assuming, Louis, that’s in your little rulebook. ‘We don’t have choirs on this show’. You’re nitpicking. Joe, if I’m being honest, I think you sang better last week. I do. I thought you were very, very good tonight, but at the beginning you kind of lost your way a bit. It started to pick up at the end, but I think the song slightly overwhelmed you. Having said that, I think you’re safe as houses for next week.”

Cheryl: “It’s irrelevant what they say. The people at home can hear, they’ve all got ears, and that was absolutely fantastic. Whether you had a choir or not you are technically the best singer in this competition. That song is a vocal rollercoaster and you sang it to a T.”


John & Edward – ‘Under Pressure/Ice Ice Baby’

Dannii: “Honestly, where do I begin? Let me ask you, Louis, with the rule book – where does Vanilla Ice fit in with Queen week, apart from the four lines that are mashed up? Louis’s rules and everyone else’s rules.”

Cheryl: “You know what, I am so happy to hear them chanting ‘Jedward’ for once. There are no boos and it’s lovely to hear. I think over the past few weeks you’ve come out here with a hard exterior and you kind of forget you’re a couple of 17-year-old lads with an opportunity, and you’re running with it. Good for you. And you’re entertaining – I thoroughly enjoyed it.”

Simon: “I can’t judge you in the real world anymore – I have to judge you in Jedward land. If I kind of take myself there, I would say that was your best performance yet. You know what, I have to say this, there’s no point me getting angry or serious about this. If people like you, they like you. And I want to say this as well, guys – you’ve conducted yourself very well, because you haven’t whined, you’ve just got on with it.”

Louis: “That was your best performance, it was the most authentic performance. You look like popstars and when the idiot [Calvin Harris] jumped up from the audience it didn’t even faze you guys. Kids love you, they identify with you, and I want everybody to please lift up the phone and vote for Jedward – we need the votes.”


Stacey Solomon – ‘Who Wants To Live Forever’

Louis: “Simon, you’re the last girl in the competition, and that was incredible, professional… everything about it I loved. You look like a diva, it’s like you’ve been doing this for years and years and years. I want people to vote for Stacey.”

Cheryl: “That was absolutely stunning. You totally sang your socks off and that was beautiful.”

Simon: “Stacey, you know I will always, always be honest with you. I think that is important. And that was, by a mile, the best performance of the night. It’s like we’ve brought you back. All the ‘whatever’ is gone, and now we’ve got you back where we want you to be. It was brilliant.”

Dannii: “Stacey, I just want to say you had amazing comments this week. Brian [May] and Roger [Taylor] said, ‘Absolutely don’t change anything’ and you’ve made me so proud. You’ve grown into a woman overnight, and I’m not judging you in your own world or any other world, you’re in a singing competition and you deserve to be here. Please pick up the phone and vote for Stacey.”


Danyl Johnson – ‘We Are The Champions’

Dannii: “Danyl, I absolutely think that was your best performance in the live shows.”

Louis: “Danyl, there’s nothing wrong with being arrogant and confident if you’ve got the talent to back it up, and tonight you proved you’ve got it all. You’re here for a long, long time. That was the most convincing performance of the night.”

Cheryl: “I wasn’t sure when you started off, but you totally won me over by the end. And you look really handsome with your hair like that!”

Simon: “That was absolutely fantastic. What was so good about that was it was not a karaoke performance. You sang as if you meant it and acted the song, which is important. It was everything the guys have said themselves. Outstanding. Loved it.”

Dannii to quite

Dannii Minogue will quit The X Factor if John & Edward knock Stacey Solomon out.

Danni is fuming after the twins knocked singer Lucie Jones last week.

A show insider said: “Dannii is fuming and just disillusioned at the whole show. She thinks the Grimes are nice kids, but that they don’t deserve to take a place in the remaining acts on the show.

“She was devastated to lose Lucie last week and she couldn’t take it if remaining act Stacey also got the boot and the Grimes stayed in. She has told people on the show that she couldn’t see the point in staying if all the talented singers were shown the door.”

The twatty twins will be attempting to sing again tonight and will be performing ‘Under Pressure’ tonight – after being advised to ditch plans to sing ‘Radio Ga Ga’ – personally I would like to see them do ‘I want to break free’ dressed up like Freddy was in the video.
