The X Factor UK 2017 – 4th Week Live Show 7 Recap – Groups & Boys Categories #XFactor

The theme this week is Crazy in Love so it’s clearly all about being in love and uhm, being crazy hahaha while the prize of the winning act this week is that he/she/they will get to record their own song with Ali Tamposi (who works with the likes of Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson and many more).

For the 7th live show of the series, the Boys and the Groups battled it out with two acts leaving last night. And boy was it a shocker! I mean, I expected that particular act to get the boot but the other act’s elimination was way surprising! I really thought they’re in it to win it!

Sam Black – Oops by Little Mix

He was still pitchy and he’s obviously the weakest in the competition. I don’t know what Louis was thinking when he let him sing this song! I agree with Simon, the song choice was horrible.

Simon: That’s what I call a prom cocktail. Everything that happens around you has been done by other people.
Nicole: It was the best performance you’ve ever done so far.
Sharon: I’ve never see you JUST YOU up there. Same comment as Simon.
Louis: You’re still here so obviously people like you. (NOT, ANYMORE Louis)

Sean and Conor Price – Issues by Julia Michaels
They didn’t have their guitar this week! I absolutely loved this song and I thought Conor totally killed it. I loved them and was sad that their stint was cut short. What is wrong with the Brits???

Louis loved it!
Sharon: Excellent song choice! This is where you shine!
Nicole: Conor’s voice was amazing! I still think you guys are better than that.
Simon: The competition won’t be the same without you boys. 😦

The Cutkelvins – Saved Me from Myself (Original)
We’re finally hearing the boys taking center stage! This was just an A-OK song for me! I think they really did deserved to stay with this performance.

Louis: I think this was a big risk and it totally paid off!
Sharon: A really, really, great song! It was fantatic!
Nicole: The Cutkelvins has arrived!
Simon: It tells me about who you are as people. I think it’s gonna pay off.

Lloyd Macey – From This Moment by Shania Twain.
I didn’t like this and thought this was his worst performance in the show.

Simon: You are a really good singer. This was great but it didn’t make me emotional.
Nicole: You have such a beautiful instrument.
Sharon: There’s always room for somebody like you in the industry.
Louis: You have the most amazing pure recording voice.

Rak-Su – Mona Lisa (Original)
This guys are ready to go out there! They’re so freaking good! And this original song is so freaking good!

Louis: Every week you’re bringing it!
Sharon: (drop mic) You are guys are unbelievable!
Nicole: This country has fallen in love with Rak-Su.
Simon: There is so much talent in this country and you are showing that.

Rak-Su got the highest votes making them last night’s champion!

Eliminated: Sam Black & Sean and Conor Price

Here’s what brothers Sean and Conor has to say about their stint in the show:

GENUINELY so grateful to everyone that has voted for us and continued to support us!❌❤️Week 4 is going to come fast! Back to work!!🙌🏼

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 6 Recap – Girls & Boys Categories #XFactor

It’s the second night of the third week of the live shows. I’m not sure if I liked the result this week but the people have spoken so there’s that.

Alisah Bonaobra – Praying For Time
She is getting better and better each week. This heartfelt performance is perhaps her best in the live shows.

Louis said she picked the right song by singing Praying for Time saying it was indeed her time. Nicole said her voice was limitless. Simon on the other hand find it old fashion. Her coach Sharon said she connected with the song lyrically but she haven’t had her moment.

Sam Black – I’m Your Man
With this performance and him being safe this week, I’m guesing that he’ll be the next to leave. This is how you murder a song. This is CRINGY in well, obviously all caps!

Sharon: It was a bit pitchy tonight
Nicole: Agreed with Mrs.O
Simon: You’re a very nice guy. In terms of originality, there was nothing.
Louis: He did his very best! (LOL)

Grace Davies – I Can’t Make You Love Me
I didn’t like her vocals here. The strain in her voice was rather highlighted.
Louis: You are a true artist. I believe every single word.

Nicole: It’s was beautiful.
Simon: I admired you tonight. It felt sincere.
Sharon: You picked yourself up and you focused, that’s why people loved you.

Rai-Elle Williams – They Won’t Go When I Go
This is my favorite performance from Rai-Elle so far. The rawness of her voice is so magical to hear.

She got a standing ovation from the three but Louis.
Louis: You got everything going for you.
Nicole: You took us to church tonight with that performance.
Simon: You really are taking this seriously. You got a great spirit about you.
Sharon: You chose this song. You are such a brave artist.

Lloyd Macey – A Different Corner
Vocals! Vocals! Powerful vocals! Dare I say he’s much better than Sam Smith!!!

Sharon: It was just wonderful! (and Mrs. O was bawling her eyes out!)
Nicole: You got me tonight. That was the performance of the night.
Simon: That is a really difficult song to sing. This is your best performance in the live show.
Louis: You are a very special person. He agreed with Nicole.

Holly Tandy – One More Try
She looks absolutely smashing as per usual. This was her strongest vocals so far.

Louis: It was your best vocal performance yet.
Nicole: You took on a massive song! Still can’t believe Holly is 16.
Simon: You gotta become 16 years old. The whole thing was old fashion.
Sharon: Your voice was spectacular and you looked like a goddess.

Eliminated: Alisah (she was in the bottom with Sam Black)

Champion of the night: Lloyd and it’s a well deserved one!

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 – Week 8 Recap – Judges’ House – Boys’ Category #XFactor

I’m not worried about Louis’ category. After the weekend, I am fairly sure that they are the weakest category. Ugh. I have to apologize to the girls because I keep on yapping on how they are the weakest prior to the judges’ house episodes. The super cute Mika helped Louis picked his top 3!

Aidan Martin – One Last Time by Ariana Grande

He’s a really good singer but he’s a bit dated for me. Not sure about the guy.

Sam Black – Hard To Handle by Otis Redding

I still believe it’s unfair for him to go through this stage without battling it out in the Six Chair Challenge. Ugh. And no, I didn’t like his performance here. I was cringing watching it.

Leon Mallett – Dreams by Gabrielle

What the hell is Leon thinking choosing this song? No, just no.

Jack Mason – Clown by Emeli Sandes

I absolutely loved Jack’s song choice and he sounds absolutely divine! Let’s be honest, they chose the other guys because of their looks. Ugh. Louis!

Spencer Sutherland – Wasted Time (Original)

Spencer is full sex appeal. Just pure sex appeal. I do think he’s the strongest in this category.

Lloyd Macey – How Far I’ll Go by Auli’i Cravalho

What a clever choice! I loved this song from Moana and this just fit Lloyd’s voice perfectly!!!

Louis’ Top 3 Boys are: Lloyd, Sam and Spencer!

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

The boys! The boys, the boys, the boys! I initially thought that this was the strongest category this year what with Anthony Russell, Aidan Martin and Jack Mason leading the pack but after seeing all of their performances from the Bootcamp up to the Six Chair Challenge, I figured that they’re just slightly better than the Girls category whom I considered the weakest this year. At this stage, the winner for me will probably be coming from either the Overs or the Groups category. Anyway, here are the performances of the boys who made it through the judges house hoping to make it to the live shows. Such a shame really because front-runner Anthony Russell was booted even before reaching the judges’ house. You will see at the end of this post the ‘boy’ Louis decided to bring back which is really baffling to be honest.

Leon Mallet – I really thought that Alex is much better than him but truth be told, I’m still baffled why he made it over Benji Matthews. Seriously…

Singing a judge’s song is a big risk but I thought Spencer delivered real well with his oversinging (yes Louis, I’ve to agree with you) of the Pussycat Dolls’ Dont Cha. It was a very smart choice and I think his main purpose is to display his vocals which I thought is one of the best of the night.

I just find him overly dramatic. He sang a very heartfelt original song called Punchline and secured his seat from Nicole! Uhm…

I absolutely loved his song choice! He’s probably the best in the boys category now that Anthony is out of the competition. It was a very well deserved seat!

He’s okay I guess but he’s just gonna be a filler in the competition.

Anthony’s last performance…

Here’s the super likable Benjie Matthews singing an original! I’m fucking gutted that he didn’t get a seat!!!

You see, Anthony was booted out and guess who they asked to comeback??? None other than SAM BLACK. I mean, cmon! He’s not even in the Six Chair Challenge!!!!

What the fuck???!!!
