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!!!
