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.”

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.”

“They’re both single and have been spending more and more time together. They’ve had a few cuddles – and at least one kiss out of sight of the other contestants. They look really good together and seem to enjoy each other’s company. They’re always laughing.”

A spokesman for the show would not commit on the matter and stated: “Olly and Stacey are very, very good friends.”

Queen songs are the theme tonight and Olly is expected to tackle ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, while Stacey will sing her version of ‘Who Wants To Live Forever’.

Brian May and Roger Taylor from Queen helped all of the contestants this week and were impressed with Olly’s performance stating that he put absolutly everything into the song.

We commenting on Staceys rendition, May and Taylor said: “She will break hearts if she performs like that on Saturday.”
