The X Factor UK 2017 – Your Wildcard Picks! #XFactor

As part of the ‘Wildcard’ twist that was announced at the end of last weekend’s show, one act from each category will have the chance to come back and make it through the live shows via public voting. Now, this is actually much better because you’d see right through who’s got the strongest fan base amongst the rejected contestants at the judges house.

For my personal choice. I’d pick Berget, Alisah, Jack & Joel and Jack Mason to go through. Don’t forget to vote who you think deserves a chance to make it through the live shows!

The X Factor UK 2017 – Week 8 Recap – Judges’ House – Overs Category #XFactor

Nicole had Stormzy to help her decide which three of the six acts will move on to the Live Shows.

1. Tracyleanne Jefford – You’ll Lose A Good Thing by Barbara Lynn (OST Hairspray)

I just loved her personality! She reminds me so much of Rebecca Ferguson but with more personality. As for her performance, I find it a bit off because her voice came out way too raspy unlike her other performances.

2. Talia Dean – Do You Really Want To Hurt Me? by Culture Club

I loved her song choice but let’s be real here. She’s the weakest singer in her category.

3. Matt Linnen – Everybody’s Free by Rozalla

Ugh. Too sexy. And that Rozalla’s song is total perfection for his voice! What a really great song choice! But he’s really awkward without his guitar yeah? He’s still my winner from this group and in my top 2 along with Sean & Connor Price.

4. Slavko Kalezic – On The Floor by Jennifer Lopez

Feisty! Crazy! Werk it! Slavko fucking killed his performance. I don’t think it’s enough to merit him a ticket to the live show but he’s so freaking entertaining.

5. Berget Lewis – Clarity by Zedd feat Foxes.

Poor Berget was a disaster! She was too emotional and I think she was pressured to deliver. Unfortunately, this was the most crucial stage pre-live shows and she disappoint big time.

6. Kevin Davy White – Puzzle of My Heart (Original)

Don’t you just love his accent? His original is really beautiful and he gave a really beautiful performance. Gosh, those vocals are so on point!

The Top 3 Acts who made it through the live shows are: Matt Linnen, Kevin Davy White, Tracyleanne Jefford

The X Factor UK 2017 – Week 7 Recap – Overs’ Six Chair Challenge

The Overs are always the least favorite of the judges to mentor despite three previous winners were from this category. This year, they are one of the strongest in my opinion with Matt Linnen and Berget Lewis leading the pack.

Matt Linnen is my top choice for the overs and my overall-second pick to win this season. He’s got everything going for him. He’s very good looking, has that raspy sexy voice and definitely has the X-factor. This isn’t his best performance because he looks awkward without a guitar and the way he’s flapping his hands and engaging the audience was a bit cringy but Nicole knows that he is her best chance to win the season.

Holland native Berget is arguably the best vocalist in the competition and without question, her seat is the most deserved. Don’t hate on me, I love Berget but I just don’t think she has a chance of winning this if I’m being honest.

After being ousted in favor of Loverine from the Philippines, the audience’ clamor to bring her back created an awkward moment for Nicole where she basically asked Loverine to give the seat back to her. I honestly don’t see Talia’s appeal. I’m sure she’s a nice girl but she’s one of the weakest singers in the competition in my opinion.

Tracy Leanne Jefford
I just loved her. Her voice kind of reminds me of Amy Winehouse transported back in time which is basically what Amy Winehouse is all about. She’s also inspiring like just what Nicole has mentioned.

French crooner Kevin Davy White is a really good vocalist but I still can’t figure out why I’m not getting his music – yet. He’s likable enough but he’s kind of boring.

Slavo Kalezic from Montenegro was the big upset of the night. I mean, I dont’ understand why he’s there in the first place.

The X Factor UK 2017 – Week 5 Recap – My ‘Bootcamp’ Favorites!

It’s taken me half the week to finally have time to watch each performance and I’ve to say that I am more than impressed with the talent that went through last week and will be battling it out on next episode’s Six Chair Challenge.

The first stage of the bootcamp was The Wall of Songs were 35 songs are offered for those who made it through the audition round and will sing it as a group in front of the panel. Most of the performances were cringe-worthy if I’m being honest.

And like what Simon said which I wholeheartedly agree with, Grace Davies group who sang Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur was one of the better groups –  if not the only decent one.

My Four Potential Winners

1. Matt Linnen is definitely leading the pack this season. He’s very good looking and has a really good vocals – not very current but marktable enough. He’s like the better and hotter version of Matt Cardle.

2. Sean and Connor Price – if there is one act that could potentially derails Matt’s winning the title, then it could be them. They are very charismatic and very current and has decent voices. Plus, we need to have a new pop group/duo sensation to top the charts worldwide and I really, really believe they could do it.

3. Holly Tandy is a surprise for me. I didn’t think she could pull off Sign of the Time by Harry Styles. She’s my favorite amongst the girls this season.

4. Berget Lewis is again, flawless. I’m just not sure right now how relatable she is with the audience.

The rest are just so-so for me. The CutKelvins and Grace Davies didn’t really And I am not even going to mention Alisa Bonaobra begging for a second chance. I mean, she’s a good singer but I find it unfair for the other girls who weren’t given another chance only because they didn’t beg and cry on stage. It was really awkward to watch.

One of my early favorites, Anthony Russell made it through the first round but had to withdraw since he admitted that he was on drugs during the audition. He was apparently asked to leave and come back next year, clean. I’m hoping he’d come back tho.

Who are your favorites this year?

The X Factor UK 2017 – My Top 12 Acts

Disregarding their respective categories, here are my Top 12 favorite acts for this season!

My numero uno is Berget Lewis. She’s simple unbelievable! The world need to hear her voice!

2. Anthony Russell – He’s the most likable contestant this year and he’s got a very unique sound!!! Totally rooting for this guy!

3. Grace Davies is Adele 2.0! Let’s see if the UK public feel the same way.

4. Matt Linnen. Drop Dead Gorg. Physically and that fucking sexy voice!

5. Tracy Leanne Jefford – She’s going to be Berget’s biggest competition in the overs category! Beautiful, classy and utterly charismatic!

6. Sean and Connor Price. I’m already guessing them advancing into the semis!

7. Kevin Davy White. The male version of Berget. Non-UK singer with a big voice!

8. Chloe Rose Moyle. Just because she’s cute and a better substitute for Taylor Swift.

9. Jack & Joel. I just thought they’re real fun. Let them in if Clique *high kick* won’t make it.

10. The Cutkelvins. Same a Chloe’s. Good eyecandy. The girl would have to be solo though. Real talk only.

11. Rebecca Grace. Too similar with Grace but still, she’s got a fantastic set of pipes!

12. Sam Black. Will either be in a group or solo. Either way, he’s going to make it!

Special Mention: The supe adorable Jordan Rabjohn whom I can already see being eliminated and getting ask to join a group…

The X Factor UK 2017 – Week 4 Recap – The Best Auditions

Okay, so I’ll just be posting here whom I thought the best acts are in the last week of this season’s audition rounds. And I am telling you, this last batch collectively is the weakest but perhaps has the stronger ‘singer’ in the competition. Doesn’t mean he/she/they’ll win tho…okay, let me stop. I am refering ofcourse to Berget Lewis. She’s a star from the get go and has a phenomenal voice! She’s a well known soul singer from her “small country,” The Netherlands ad has released a couple of albums back in 2007 and 2013.

For her X Factor UK audition, she sung Prince’s Purple Rain and damn, mama took me to church!!!! Prince must be hella proud!

Then we have two cuties – both vying for Nicole’s attention lol! Brad Howard and Matt Linen. There’s no question that Matt Linnen is the strongest singer between them and he’d definitely move forward in the competition.

Then there’s Alisah Bonaobra – my homegirl who came all the way from here (The Philippines). She’s good but not the best in the competition if I may say so.

Who are your favorites from the last batch of auditions?
