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.

The X Factor UK 2017 – Live Show 2 Recap – Groups and Overs Categories #XFactor

Last night’s show was a bit interesting since Talia Dean was announced to be the wildcard winner for the Overs category. I assumed that the Brits will get powerhouse singer Berget Lewis through the live show. One of my favorite acts this season, Jack & Joel meanwhile are the wildcard winner for the group category and truth be told, they rightfully deserved it.

Groups

The super good looking siblings The Cutkelvins were the first group to perform with Pink’s What About Us and they were amazing! Their leader, and the youngest and the only girl looks and sounded absolutely amazing!

Irish brother Sean & Conor Price performed their own version of Strong by London Grammar and it wasn’t their best performance but as I’ve been saying from the very start, they are born to do this. They are pop superstars waiting to happen!

Jack & Joel’s song choice was a really good one. It shows their vocal strength but they still look awkward together.

Rak-Su meanwhile performed their original song entitled Mamacita. I think this is the first time I’m convinced that they could actually make it into the finale. The are like the millenial version of the UK boyband from the early 2000, Blue.

Overs

Kevin Davy White sang Stay by Rihanna and Mikky Ekko and it was perfection! Loved his tone and the intensity in his voice. You can truly feel what he’s singing.

I’m a fan of Tracyleanne Jefford. I honestly don’t think that she’d have a chance of winning the whole thing but I’ve a feeling that she’s going to be big after this. I wished she’d sing something from Amy for the next live show! Sis got soul! And she looks absolutely smashing without all those make up.

I felt that Talia’s decision to sing something from One Direction is to rally some 1D fan but I didn’t think that it really worked. She’s improved heaps with her vocals but I still think that she’s got the weakest vocals in the competition along with Leon.

Matt Linnen is my winner at this point. He finally edged out brothers Sean and Conor on my list. He looks like a superstar, like he’s superhot. He’s got a really good voice and he’s very charismatic.

Bottom Two: Tracyleanne Jefford and Talia Dean
Eliminated: Talia Dean and it’s a well-deserved boot as well.. Sorry boo.

Rak-Su by the way is the Live Show 2 Champion who battled it out with Grace Davies for the Prize Fight.

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.
