The X Factor UK 2017 – Week 5 Live Shows 10 Semi-finals Double Elimination Recap #XFactor

I think we’ve all seen it coming after Matt Linnen’s elimination on Saturday. Without him in contention, the obvious is very clear that the season’s favorite Rak-Su, Grace Davies and Kevin Davy White will end up battling it each other to be the ultimate winner of this year’s X-Factor and it’s happening next week!

Let’s check out the Top 5 performances!

Lloyd Macey – Fix You by Coldplay

The guy keeps singing ballads so it’s really kind of worrying if he could do anything else. Now, we’ll never know – at last on X-Factor

Rak-Su does what they do best by singing an original! The song is called I’m Feeling You. Personally, it feels like I’ve heard the song before but these guys are fucking fantastic!

The Cutkelvins – Show Me Love by Robin S.

They should’ve left before the Price’s brothers but oh well…

Kevin Day White – Voodoo Child (Slight Return) by the Jimi Hendrix Experience

Again, this guy is already a pro! I mean, what is he doing in X-Factor? He should be at the Grammys, VMA, EMA, Brit Awards…seriously!

Grace Davies sang Wolves – an original and it’s OMFG – just incredible! She’s my winner this week! She got a well deserved spot in the finals!

The X Factor UK 2017 – Week 5 Live Shows 9 Semi-finals Recap #XFactor

It’s the semis and we’re down to the last six acts and by the end of this weekend, we’d only have three or four acts that will compete on most likely next week’s finale!

First, I’ve to say that the results earlier tonight shocked the hell out of me. I didn’t see that coming at all!

The Cutkelvins sang another original called “Nothing Like You,” and it was surprisingly good! I loved hearing more from the brothers!

Nicole: I’m so impressed! I’m starting to see the whole picture!
Louis: It gets better week after week! It sounds like a hit single! Somebody has to go home, it can’t be this guys
Sharon: I think you guys are so much more into it when you do your own material.
Simon: Last week was good. I thought the song was better this week. This was the best performance you’ve done so far.

Matt Linnen – Gimme Shelter by the Rolling Stones
I thought this was Matt’s kind of genre because of his voice but I figured that he’s more of a pop-alt kind of guy.

Louis: You’re good but the song was all wrong.
Sharon: You sang really well tonight. It was really good.
Simon disagreed with Louis because he like that song.
Nicole obviously loved it.

Grace Davis – Life on Mars? by David Bowie
I liked it! This is Grace in her element.

Simon: Why I loved your version, you took it where others won’t take it.
Nicole: You sound beautiful. Understated and simple
Louis: I think you’re a class act. This could be the performance of the night for me.
Sharon: Was so pure and understated.

Kevin Davy White – Come Together by The Beatles
Holly Molly! That was soooo goood!!!

Louis: You’re a class act. We have to get you in the final.
Sharon: You are such a showman!
Simon: It was like being at your concert.
Nicole: You are a trailblazer!

Lloyd Macey – Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me by Sir Elton John
OMG! This is one of my favorite songs ever! I thought he sang it real good! Not the best one I’ve heard but it’s good!

Simon: That was a great song choice.
Nicole: I know you’re sick but that was my absolute favorite performance of yours.
Sharon: You did amazingly well tonight.
Louis: You are a brilliant artist!

Rak-Su – Flowers by Sweet Female Attitude
LOL. I absolutely loved this song! This was quite big during my high school days!!!! I’ve to say though, this was Rak-Su’s worst performance for me.

Louis: Your vocals are absolutely perfect. He didn’t like the song choice.
Sharon prefered them doing an original.
Nicole: Dunno how to take her comment but it’s like she’s humoring the guys and the audience.
Simon: I think what you’ve done and will do is that you’re game changers.

Eliminated: Matt Linnen

Book Review: Red Dirt Imago (Red Dirt, #4.5 / Imago, #2.5) – N.R. Walker

Date of Publication: April 20, 2017
Publisher: BlueHeart Press
Genre & Theme: LGBT, MM, Romance
ASIN: B0724ZFHRT
Characters: Charlie Sutton, Travis Craig, Jack Brighton, Lawson Gale

Blurb:When Charlie Sutton’s neighbour Greg is notified by the Queensland government that they intend to run a pipeline through his property, Charlie vows to help him fight it. Then Travis remembers seeing butterflies at the creek near their joining fence line – the same butterflies they couldn’t find in any Australian butterfly book. Hopeful this might be their only chance to stop the development, they seek the help of a specialist.

Lawson Brighton-Gale receives an email request to identify a butterfly in the Outback, only to discover it’s not an Australian butterfly at all. But that’s not all he discovers. The name on the request is familiar to Jack. An old friend from his university days, who also happened to be his old friend with benefits, Charlie Sutton.

Years ago, two out-of-towners met at the University of Sydney. Both studying environmental sciences, both hundreds of miles from home, and both finding their worlds open to new experiences, they fell into bed together. Meeting again after all this time, in front of Lawson and Travis, won’t be awkward at all, right?

Lawson and Jack’s trip to Sutton Station certainly doesn’t go to plan, and what they take back to Tasmania isn’t just butterflies, but a cocoon of possibilities.

Red Dirt Imago is our cutesie little return to the very much beloved Red Dirt Heart Series and this time, with Lawson and Jack from the author’s Imago series (or the other way around).

Reading about Charlie and Travis again makes me a bit melancholic because I absolutely loved their story and the timeline of this story is in the past since we all know that their daughter grew up to be a beautiful strong-willed woman.

I can absolutely relate with both Lawson and Travis here. No matter how mature we think we are in these situations – meeting your former lover and their current lover – though in this instance, former sex buddies, there’s still a tinge of something that will make us feel a bit jealous I guess…I think that’s what makes us human. That’s what’s make Lawson and Travis more realistic in a way.

This is a cutesie little gift from the author for the fans of both series and that super cute surprise at the end is just too adorbs! This is highly recommended for those who are missing Travis and Charlie!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

About The Author
N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance.
She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.

She is many things; a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.

She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things…but likes it even more when they fall in love.

She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.

She’s been writing ever since…

How is Chanel Olive Thomas in Miss Supranational 2017?

The X Factor UK 2017 – Live Shows Week 4 Prize Fight – Rak-Su vs Grace Davies #XFactor

Again, it’s Grace vs Rak-Su – two of the frontrunners of this series.

I loved both song. Mona Lisa by Rak-Su is pop perfection whilst Grace’s Hesitate is a dance-club hit waiting to happen!

Winner: Rak-Su
