The X Factor UK 2017 – Week 6 Top 3 Finals Recap #XFactor

This is going to be real quick because these three remaining acts are all deserving of the top plum! Sadly though, one has to leave the competition last night and two of them will move forward and battle it out tonight to claim to X Factor throne this series!

Each act sang two songs. One for their solo performance and the next one is a duet with an established act.

Kevin Davy White performed first with Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin.

This is a Kevin Davy White classic. Beautiful performance yet again!!!

Grace Davies meanwhile sang Live and Let Die from the 1973 James Bond film of the same title.

Ugh. This is my favorite performance of her tbh. This is her genre!

Rak-Su for their solo sang their original song Mamacita.

These boys are amazing! I’ve high hopes for them win or lose

Their Duets

Kevin Davy White – Fastlove, Pt. 1 with Tokio Myers

Grace Davies – Roots (Original) with Paloma Faith

Rak-Su – Dimelo (Original) with Naughty Boy & Wyclef Jean

Eliminated: Kevin Davy White

My Winner’s Prediction is Grace Davies!

Who Should Win The X Factor UK 2017? #XFactor

We’re down to the last three acts – Grace Davies, Rak-Su and Kevin Davy White  – and this weekend’s performances will determine the series’ 14th champion.

Will the charismatic Kevin Davy White be able to sway the public to vote for him and make him the first non-British contestant to win the show? Or will Rak-Su be performing another chart-topper for their final performances? Last but definitely not the least – will Lancashire native Grace Davies be able to worm her way to the top against her testosterone-dominated competitors?

Let’s watch them in their first audition.

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!

Eliminated: Lloyd Macey and The Cutkelvins

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

No Prize Fight this week!

The X Factor UK 2017 – 4th Week Live Show 8 Recap – Girls and Overs Categories #XFactor

Out of all the acts who performed last night, the two acts who got the lowest number of votes were the weakest performances wise.

Rai-Elle’s performance of Mr. Big Stuff was well-received enough by the judges; said it was her beat vocal performance but people need to vote for her!

Kevin took on a big risk with this Song and I thought he did pretty well here. The consensus is that it was great but it wasn’t his best performance to date. Oh, and he’s real and a very nice person too.

Matt is my biggest spoiler for the title. I mean, he’s already in my top 3 since the very beginning but his performance of Alicia Keys’ most iconic song is just up there.

The judges thought that vocally, this was his best performance yet. And he’s awfully charming as well.

This was just painful to watch and what’s even more painful is Louis pointing out the obvious. Ugh. Poor Holly.

Grace Davies singing an original is always a joy to watch! I’ve to agree with Sharon – this was a fantastic song (called ‘Hesitate’) and it was nice seeing Grace in her element and enjoying herself onstage.

Eliminated: Rai-Elle and Holly

The X Factor UK 2017 – Live Shows Week 3 Prize Fight – Kevin Davy White vs Lloyd Macey #XFactor

Both guys gave stunning performances and it’s all up to the viewers.

Personally, Kevin’s rendition of Fastlove, Pt. 1 is just beyond but you cannot deny the vocal prowess of Lloyd in A Different Corner.

The Prize Fight winner will open for Little Mix at Manchester Arena a week from now! How freaking cool is that???!!!

The X Factor UK 2017 – Third Week Live Show 5 Recap – Groups and Overs Categories #XFactor

It is the third week of the Live Shows and for the fifth live show, the Groups and the Overs categories battled it out with songs from the late great George Michael.

Rak-Su started the show with Faith. IMO, this was just an okay performance if not a bit pedestrian.

Nicole: She loved that they kept the integrity of the song.
Louis: Rak-Su make it look that easy
Sharon: Really enjoyed it. They Rak-Su’d it!
Simon: You made it your version. I think we are watching stars being born…

Kevin sang Fastlove, Pt. 1 and it’s record perfection! I mean, why is he in this contest? He should be touring the world already!!! He’s now my top act to win this season!

He go another standing ovation from all of the judges.
Simon thought it was Kevin’s MOMENT and the best performance of the night!
Louis love that Kevin’s into music and not in the fame game.
Sharon: Everything was perfect! (I agree with you there Ms. O)
Her mentor Nicole opined that it was the best performance he ever witnessed on the show! (Wow!)

Jack & Joel – Edge of Heaven
I thought it was fun. Not my favorite from them but it was fun!

Nicole: They sounded Whamazing!
Louis: You’re like a modern day Wham!
Sharon: They really suited the song.
Simon: Simon thought this was their best performance so far.

The Cutkelvins – Killer/Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone
Gosh! Their accents!!! They can easily go out there and release a record to be honest! I’m so glad they bounced back this week! Although I’m starting to hate the usual set-up they have production-wise.

They got a standing ovation from the judges.
Nicole thought they looked so great as a group together.
Louis said it was their best performance yet! (And I agree!)
Sharon said they slammed it!
Simon:Something clicked tonight for the group.

Sean and Conor Price – Freedom! ’90”
I absolutely loved these two! I don’t know if they’re still in my top 3 but I do know that they will go far after the show.

Another standing ovation from the judges.
Nicole: Conor reminds her of Justin Bieber.
Louis: They are Real!
Sharon loves their enthusiasm.
Simon: They’re very infectious with no gimmicks! Ask viewers to vote for them.

Matt Linnen sang Careless Whisper and what a song choice! OMFG! He’s so cute with his robotic movements yeah? He kind of reminds me of David Cook here. And girls, he is a DADDY!!!! Didn’t know this info until this week!

Only Simon and Nicole stood up for him.
Sharon: You did really well tonight but still feels his insecurity
Louis said it was his best vocals to date.
Simon: By far his best performance.
Nicole said she could tell how much this means to Matt and that he was singing for his boys.

The act who got the boot is/are…

And the obvious Champion of the night with the most public votes is Kevin Davy White!!!

The X Factor UK 2017 – Live Show 4 Recap – Girls and Overs Categories #XFactor

Kevin Davy White singing a Santana song is perfection to the hilt. Seriously, this guy is way ahead of his competitors. He is very likable, has a great image and sings like a proper popstar! If he continue this way, he’s on the right track of winning it all.

Admittedly, this isn’t Matt Linnen’s best performance but it was much better than most of the contestants tonight. And he’s fucking beautiful. Again, he is still my top act to win it all even though Kevin totally outperformed him.

Rai-Elle Williams’ Bailando’s performance is fun to watch and Rai-Elle has so much to offer but I still find her a bit too young and perhaps, her voice not that mature yet. For now, she’s got 2/10 chances of winning this show.

I’ve to agree with Simon on this one. This isn’t Grace as an artist. I know her purpose is to show her versatility as a performer but she’s looks uncomfortable af on that stage. I wished she sang another original. This is her worst performance to date in my opinion.

Holly Tandy’s performance is just cringe-worthy. She butchered the song into oblivion, it’s a good thing she looked so damn pretty while singing it!

This for me is Alisah’s best performance to date because she’s good at belting notes and this showcased her versatility. Unlike Grace, Alisah’s personality suited this transition much better. I still think that she’s got work to do about her diction and pronunciation but homegirl’s determination is there so I’m expecting her to go far in the competition.

Traceyleanne Jefford is one of my favorites this season so I was really sad to see her leave. I thought Rai-Elle should’ve gone home instead but it’s obvious that the public doesn’t really care much for her since she was also at the bottom two last week.
