Two songs each
Wagner doing Creep
Pathos. "I know Thom Yorke is watching." :D
"Actually it's, I'm a weirdo, what the hell am I doing here?"
He looks like he really REALLY wants to win and that he will do whatever it takes to achieve that.
Wagner would have nailed that, and Thom Yorke would have loved it. It's original!
i love rock week
How old is Harry?
Avril Lavigne. ffs. What the fuck was that rap too??
lil mama doesn't exist in her head
get off you one dimensional moron
a little Pterodactyle being born
She can't sing, she's a whiny little bitch - "Ooh, it was Beatles week and there was so much pressure on me because I'm from Liverpool!" - and I wish she would just fuck off.
but she sang a song that might as well have been written specifically for her. "You put your own stamp on it." No. Fuck off. Bring back Treyc doing Led Zep.
i don't like her anymore
I doubt she's hit a note in her entire life, she just covers it up with the 'unique' tone of her voice.
cher wouldn't know a note if it hit her in her fucking cheryl effort face. despicable woman.
i'm gonna try say funny fings.
You suave fuck
Brilliant. I hope they keep the same girls so that chunky lass can finally get a date.
He's better at the ballads. And I say that as someone with little fondness for ballads.
consider the barrel to be massively scraped.
i'd definitly like to see them all over a semi.
like this week will be her last
that was fucking dreadful.
you need to have sick down you and breezer burps to really sing that song
I'd have thrown my bacardi breezer at her.
I like her doing weird quirky performances but that was cack. What the fuck are the judges on about?
It's stress related trichotillmania
she managed to avoid pulling from the root
girl got mad hair pulling skills
emphasis on the mad
is a prozzie
has someone from eastenders spunked on her tits?
Her Granny, of 80 years old, is supposed to be a prostitute, and not even one of them classy, sophisticated ones.
that put a chocolate under your foreskin when they're done and provide fresh towels.
the dancers are back
Not sure I can be arsed to sit through each of them twice in one night. Could they not have just done one full song each? I'd condone that.
'didernea yu weeen an awaaarrd simunAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA'
He looks like a normal man but scaled down 25%.
when you scrutinise their retinas in that level of detail
A penchant for TWOC'ing or robbing grannies is far more admirable in my book.
are there only 7 songs in the genre
not quite as good as Devo's version though.
stand behind mic, wax on, wax off, wax on, wax off, sashay, sashay, big finish, look nervous, get praise, look smug, walk off
She needs to go home now.
She has no talent and she comes across as so desperate.
had him with the kind of face a guy only gets when they're either trying to shift a particularly stubborn shit, or they're listening to something that sounds terrible
yet his comments were praising her, shameless
Why hasnt matt got a neck?
epic choice, so good
Cunning ploy to get Cher the extra votes that going last brings? Hmm...
I don't mean "wow in the real world of music this is very good". I'm not saying she's better than Aerosmith featuring RUN DMC. I'm not saying I'd download her single.
In terms of this crappy show though, she was the best on the night by a mile, and is the person left on the show with the most "X Factor".
I'm surprised so many people disagree.
I've nothing particularly against her but both songs were piss-poor teenage girl karaoke versions of fairly straightforward teenage girl karaoke songs. I never thought I'd use the words "that version of Walk this Way was worse than the Sugababes v Girls Aloud version" but that actually was.
Maybe the show has conditioned me to watch through my gold rimmed Simon Cowell goggles, but Cher, to me, is perfect X Factor. They have never had a winner like her before on the show, and there is a huge teenage audience for that Miley Cyrus bullshit. She looks fucking weird as well, so when the pop market grows tired, and she hits 18/19 they can turn her into some oddball rock chick doing Marylin Manson covers.
Everyone else is dull and will be forgotten by the time their debut album comes out a year later. Apart that is from Katie, who is terrible and will probably go tomorrow, Wagner, who despite being quite funny, is in reality totally cack (in Chico territory), and perhaps One Direction who might become the next Westlife (god forbid). Mary, Matt, Rebecca ... despite being the best three singers are really total dullards when it comes to the pop market.
Maybe I have got into this argument over my head, they are all crap at the end of the day, aren't they?
I think Cher is far and away the most marketable contestant - when he auditioned it was obvious she was streets ahead of anyone else in the show and she's the only one of the finalists who has definitely got the X-Factor and the potential for longevity. I'm sure Cowell & co. want her to win and they're damn right to.
But she was still easily and by several million miles the worst act of last night. The song selection was uninspired, she didn't do much with the songs and, as I say, it came across like a hyperactive teenage girl doing extremely bad karaoke.
But she was still awful.
Or awful in real life? Because I think you may be looking at her in terms of the latter which is a dangerous mistake as you start taking X Factor too seriously.
As far as hyperactive teenage karaoke acts go, I thought it was really good. I'd rather watch her than Miley Cyrus or High School Musical girl for instance. She reminds me a bit of Grover out of The Muppets. And everyone loves Grover!
I could see what she was trying to do and she was rubbish at what she was trying to do - far, far, far more so than anyone else on the show was rubbish at what they were trying to do.
As a general rule I actually think she's pretty good- by no means the world's best singer but performs well, is charismatic and pulls off what she's going for pretty well. And overall I think she's probably the one that deserves to win the show on the basis of actually having the X Factor.
But last night she was unbelievably and unmitigated disastrously shit and it'd be entirely fair enough if she got voted out on the strength of it.
a simple case of a difference of opinion on the performances!
I thought it was really good in terms of what she was trying to achieve. I don't think she deserves to be in the bottom two, and I don't think she will be.
Katie and probably Wagner will be, though it should probably be Mary based on yesterday's performances and future potential for the show, in my opinion.
and probably wasn't funny anyway. Sorry.
but then I have had the best part of a bottle of vodka
when your not sobbing uncontrollably every 5 minutes
i hope she gets in the bottom two and cries again.
that Cher seems like a really nice person - easily the most endearing of the remaining contests - and I don't give a shit what she sounds like. But she sounds alright. Not doing 'Walk This Way' though. But who does?
anyway, apparantly cher is the only one that isn't very nice.
she's clearly a little brat.
Stop lying. You didn't even know who she was until 5 minutes ago.
seriously though. she really does. not that it means much...but it makes sense. she seem like a little shit.
and if she wins she'll clearly go down the drug route.
and rebecca's fine thanks
You're all terrible judges of character and will probably be victims of domestic assault later in your lives.
So I'm with them.
who simply has one.
this endears me to her more. I don't want nice smiley and polite pop stars, I want them to act like cunts. This is why I like her, I don't know whether I fancy her or if she's going to rip my face off and steal my phone.
I also like how she doesn't do that whole telephone/hand gesture when her number comes up on screen, more often than not she just screws her face up at that point. Lovely.
She wasn't that interesting though.
Mary was pretty bad but rock week probably wasn't her thing, Cher Lloyd was beyond awful, Matt was competent but bland, Katie's voice is just about interesting enough for me to want her to stay in despite her probably not deserving too, Wagner was great on Creep but a bit crap on Addicted to Love and One Direction are so bland they might as well not exist.
Conclusion: I hope it's Cher and One Direction in the bottom two but fear it may be Katie and Wagner.
Last week when he came out in that white vest he just looked like he was some workman who'd got lost on the way to fixing a pipe backstage but who then decided to run with it. Like that taxi driver on BBC News.
its taking more and more booze to make me find him funny.
my boyfriend has been really nasty about me finding Matt attractive, (even though he fancies Katie), he says Matt looks like a builder. maybe thats a strange part of the appeal. He also has a nice mouth.
Loved Rebecca this week
He is also having any soul he had sucked out of him week by week. This is why I like One Direction, they never had any soul to start with. Although why does everyone fancy Harry? He looks like a hobit.
it will be awful.
I haven't heard anyone in their twenties or older say they fancy Harry, yet
Caitlin Moran's twitter.
Almost as bad as the contestants usually are.
Like someone can sing perfectly in time and in tune whilst being thrown into the air several times!
Why is she talking like Michael Jackson?
I can hardly remember anything she's done.
Ooh, Cher being booed.
but now he's gone, I wish he hadn't. Mary and Rebecca off next please.
I'm not really into the whole "power to the people, vote for the worst" thing, but having controversial characters like Wagner and Katie in there did add to the drama.
We all know that Matt and Wand Direction are the only ones with a shout - possibly Rebecca. Whatsmore, we've known this since the beginning. We might as well just have skipped ahead to the end and be done with it, and spare ourselves the boredom.
There's only two shows left (the winner's single has to be out w/b 13th December), so the 'characters' have to be cleared out to allow the family-populist lot to reach the end. Jedward went out the equivalent of last week.
that's it's been utterly predictable all the way through. Katie's will-she or won't-she and Wagner doing a Jedward have been the only moments of interest, just about.
The next two weeks are going to be so boring. There will be no more surprises!
Also, why do contestants never sing a song when they get voted off now? And why didn't they sing a group song today? I would've rather that than The Wanted :(
