The X Factor UK 2017 – Live Show 3 Recap – Groups and Boys Categories #XFactor

It is Latin Night with Viva Latino as this week’s theme and the prize for the Prize Fight is a recording session with a Grammy Award winning producer as to who it’d be, we’ll probably know tomorrow!

The Groups and the the Boys are battling it out today to remain in the competition and while watching all of their performances, I realized that any of these act could actually win the whole thing!

Let’s start with Jack & Joel who sang Havana by Camila Cabello. I absolutely loved this performance of the duo and thought that this is their best performance to date but I’ve to agree with Simon. They need to do something to really stand out – something that would define what kind of music they would do after the show.

Leon Mallett performed Get Lucky by Daft Funk and I didn’t get why he sang this one in Latin Night. Uhm. As much as I thought that he’s got he weakest voice in the competition, his performance is one of the most enjoyable for me!

Sean and Conor Price sang Cheap Thrills by Sia. I loved this song and I loved these two! They may not be the best singer in the bunch but they are truly likable. They’re slipping on my list as the most likely to win this series but they are still on my top 5, most definitely.

Lloyd Macey performed Hero by Enrique Iglesias and it was just perfection. I didn’t much appreciate his voice before because I find it a bit too controlled but this performances just proved to me that Lloyd is a force in this competition! A big threat to Matt Linnen most definitely!

If there’s anytime that the British public should finally crown a boy group from the show, Rak-Su are the right group for it. They sang another original song called Dimelo and it’s just fucking amazing! I’ve to agree with Nicole when she said that this is a hit single material!

Sam Black did La Bamba and Twist and Shout which I thought was one of the weakest performances of the night. I’m seeing him getting the boot soon if not next week, tbh.

I loved The Cutkelvins who sang Reggaetón Lento (Bailemos) but this is just horrendous in so many levels. The two guys were like the back-up to their lil sis! What’s up with that? It looks like Simon is sabotaging them!

This week’s champion is predictably easy and a well-deserved one for that matter. Rak-Su got the highest votes and will battle it out tomorrow at the Prize Fight!

Eliminated: Leon Mallett – so far, the Brits are getting it right! No Brexit moment for them.

The X Factor UK 2017 – Live Show 1 Recap – Girls and Boys Categories

There’s a bit of a change this season with the live shows as the four categories will be performing across two shows with the Girls and the Boys categories performing on the first night. This is where the wildcard winners were also announced with Alisah Bonaobra and Leon Mallett making it via the public votes for their respective categories.

There will also be a winner for each live show with the two winners battling it out on Sunday to win certain prizes.

The Live Show 1 winner is none other than…

This is an absolutely breathtaking performance from Grace. I wonder if she’ll just be singing original songs all through out her stay in the competition. Her song is called Too Young and it’s absolutely brilliant! A really deserving win, indeed!

And apparently, a chance to see P!nk in concert is the prize this week! Even Dermot made a mistake when he said that she’d get to see Pink… watch…

Holly Tandy – Hollow by Tori Kelly

She isn’t the most polished singer in the bunch but she’s got incredible tone and stage presence. I could totally see her making Top 6.

Rai-Elle Williams – Doo Wop (That Thing) and Lost Ones by Lauryn Hill and No by Meghan Trainor

I don’t hink she’s the strongest singer in the competition but she’s very charming! Girl got sass and I absolutely loved her performance overall.

And finally, as I’ve said from the previous post – Alisah just killed it. Her song choice was absolutely brilliant and she looked wonderful!

 

Sam Black – Faith by Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved Sam’s personality and he seems like a nice bloke but I gotta say – he is the weakest amongst the boy and probably one of the weakest singers in the show. I don’t exactly know why he got in instead of the likes of Benji…

Lloyd Macey – City of Stars by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone (OST – La La Land)

That personality, that accent! He’s absolutely adorable! And that freaking song!I didn’t think I’d say this but he’s absolutely a winner material after that performance!

Leon Mallett – Stay by Zedd and Alessia Cara

I wasn’t expecting Leon to make it to the live show and win the public votes as the boys wildcard but they obviously loves him. This performance was just okay. Nothing spectacular. I’m gonna give him two more weeks in the show tops.

Spencer Sutherland – Who You Are by Jessie J

What just happened there? I thought he’s the strongest in his category but seriously, what the ever loving fuck? I’m still baffled until now.

It all boils down to Spencer and Leon…such a shame really. Leon over Spencer is just utter BS. #RealTalk

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!
