X factor Movie Week

This week, music flirted with movies and contestants gave their best to win the audience over. Some songs were the classics that we expected while others were dangerous and risky choices. This third week was decisive.

Rough Copy started the show with a Bryan Adams’ song. “Everything I do” was the perfect opening and, even though the boys were remembered to pay more attention to their pitch and harmonies while singing together, Louis called them the “British Boys II Men”.
Next up was Sam Callahan. Nicole, Gary and Sharon all agreed that his song was a bad choice: it showed weak vocals and exposed Sam’s flaws.
Hannah Barrett sang Adele’s “Skyfall” and blew the audience away. She was magnificent and Gary said that no performance could beat her!

With “Angel”, Nicholas showed his maturity and incredible talent for such a young age. Gary asked him to bear in mind that he is only sixteen and that he does not have to be that serious when it comes to song choices.
Abi sang “Moon River” and might have made a step in the wrong direction: Sharon said she needed to work on her charisma while Gary wondered if they had lost Abi at this point of competition.

Then came Miss Dynamix. Despite improving, it seems like last week left scars. The energy and the connection were not there; Louis asked them to spend more time in rehearsals than on Twitter…
Sam Bailey was brilliant in her interpretation of “My Heart Will Go On”. She got a standing ovation. Sharon hoped that Simon Cowell was watching the show because he needs “to sign her bum”.

Kingsland Road came to peace with their boy band status and chose a song aimed at women, “Pretty Woman”. Nicole was happy with their vocals but found the performance a tad bit cheesy.
“Kiss from a Rose” was picked by Luke Friend himself and he did it justice. He was the highlight of the evening, delivering an amazing performance: great vocals, great presence and great personal touch.
Last but not least, Tamera sang “Listen” by Beyonce. Louis said she stole the show but Sharon asked her to put more soul in her performance. Gary noticed that she should come on stage as herself, not impersonating another artist.

At the end of yesterday’s Flash Vote, Miss Dynamix was sent to the sing off. While tonight, after seeing the performance from The Wanted and Lady Gaga, it was Hannah that was put in danger. The girl band chose to sing “Don’t you Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia while Hannah broke into tears at the end of her song “Read All About It”.

The judges made their mind quite easily and decided to send Miss Dynamix home. They left the show promising that they would stick together and that it was not the last of the band.
