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.

Dannii on Stacey

Stacey Solomon will “step up” to being the only remaining female competing on The X Factor according to Dannii Minogue
After the departure of Lucie Jones, Stacey is Dannii’s last hope on X Factor. However, she was “bigging up” Stacey and is confident that she can rise to the challenge.
“She’s the only woman left standing… I think she has always had a chance from the beginning and that’s why I took her from the final six I was given into my final three,” she told Live From Studio Five.
“I think she has always had a chance. I think she is going to get the power from the other girls who have left the competition now to say, ‘Right, I have really got to step up’. I really believe that she’ll kind of take that on board and use that now. And not now shrivel down, she is really in it to win it.”
When quizzed over Simon Cowell’s decision to save the Twatty Twins over her act  she said: “Look, it wouldn’t have been something I would have done, absolutely. I just thought I knew when it went to deadlock that John & Edward had more press than anyone that week so… You know, my fears were realised when they said Lucie was going, but you know you do what you do in the heat of the moment.”
“I spoke to Simon yesterday and you know he stands by his decision and really that’s why we are all there to have different opinions. It would not have been what I would have done but, it’s Stacey now.”
She added: “I think the other thing that is evident is you know the people who have had a lot of controversy surrounding them have been getting the headlines; I think that gets people voting as well. And I just have had three beautiful girls who are not into controversy, they are into singing and doing it very well.”

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 breaks Joe McElderry ribs

Stacey Solomon has broken Joe McElderry rib following a prank that went wrong.

Joe fell awkwardly after slipping on a can of deodorant inside the contestants’ house

Stacey revealed that she and Lucie Jones decided to play a joke Olly Murs.

Stacey explained: “This week me and Lucie decided to prank Olly but Olly was in a bad mood. We went downstairs with a bottle of water and the plan was that Lucie would open his pants and I would pour the water, but Lucie chickened out last minute because Olly was getting angry saying, ‘Get out of my room’.

“So we went up to his bedroom and because he hates mess we moved his blanket, we put his shoes on his bed, toothpaste, hair gel and hair spray and then he started running up the stairs so we ran and ran and I fell up the stairs and Joe slipped on a can of deodorant on the floor and broke his rib.”

An spokesperson for the X Factor stated “It appears that they were just messing around in the house and playing pranks on each other.”
