Movie Week gives so much scope for the contestants to choose a song that really suits them so, we were quite disappointed with the bland song choices this week. Starting with Craig, who chose the least-known of all the Bond theme tunes – License to Kill. He looked so smart this week and sang beautifully but still ended up leaving the competition.
We think that Craig knew that he was in trouble as he seemed totally defeated in the results show, as if he had given up. But we think he could have a long career in musical theatre.
We couldn’t believe that Amelia was in the bottom two, as she gave the night’s best performance. Kelly should really think about her song choices and the way she is dressed in future as her appeal is that she is a 16-year-old girl with a massive voice. Making her sing mature songs and dressing her like an adult makes the audience at home forget the most endearing thing about her. Kelly, please, sort it out!
All of the judges keep saying that Little Mix have more to give and at last they showed a different side. We loved their edgier performance. We would love to hear them do a real ballad next week to show off how tight there harmonies really are.
Misha is a real sticking point for us. We should love her as she has all the right ingredients to be a superstar, but there’s something that makes us wary. Some weeks she comes over as a tough cookie and other weeks she looks like a lost lamb. It makes us think that she could be playing to the cameras.
Janet, on the other hand, has remained true to herself throughout. She sang Kiss Me really well and she looked stunning. It seems she has regained her mojo.
We know we keep saying this, but Amazing Marcus is amazing. He is the only act that looks completely at ease on the stage and he oozes star quality. A record deal is definitely going to be heading his way when he leaves the show.
Lastly, we must give a mention to Dermot’s dancing on The X Factor this year. It is the absolute highlight of the show for us. What a legend!
