The X Factor is down to the final six this week. They were given two songs to perform; first theTop Six Unplugged, basically acoustic versions of hit songs and then a song from the Pepsi Challenge Viewer’s Choice.
First out was Demi’s downer CeCe Fry. Lost in her delusional world, she believed last week was her best performance. Well, as usual this week she sucked once again, her singing Lady Gaga’s hit song “Edge of Glory” became “Edge of Gory”. It literally made me sick. Sorry, but she needs to go home immediately. Why is she still here? But to be fair…this was more like her best performance, which still was not good enough.
Emblem 3 hit the stage next. Demi did not have their back as usual…but that comes from a chick who believes CeCe is a star. They stripped it down with popular Bruno Mars jam. However, they actually did not sound their best, but the screaming teens did not seem to notice.
On to my favorite singer. My girl Carly Rose Sonenclar busted out with the Justin Bieber hit “As Long As You Love Me”. And of usual, she sounded amazing! She is the best singer by far and deserves to go all the way. What a smart move to select this song…even though Britney may win by default not due to her brains. Carly is a star and will be mega hit maker down the road.
Fifth Harmony was on next and had a lot to prove. While they moved up the charts last week, they have not yet had a moment to truly shine. Unfortunately, they were missing a member during rehearsals, with Alli leaving to attend her grandfather’s funeral. Well, they may have been one short in practice, but it did not show and this was their best performance so far. LA Reid was wrong saying they don’t have harmony…this group has an abundance of it. Maybe his hearing aid is broken.
Diamond White was in the bottom two last week, which was totally wrong. But this week she actually did not redeem herself. Singing the James Brown classic “This Is A Man’s World“, did not work this time around. While she sang it earlier in the competition, the magic was gone. She may be in trouble again…but her second song was 100% better…sounded great.
Tate Stevens has stayed consistent. But the judges actually critiqued him properly tonight, saying his song did not work. The Bon Jovi hit “Livin on a Prayer” was not a good song choice for him and sometimes LA’s picks suck. It looks like he may have put another one of his contestants in jeopardy…hence Vino.
Did you really think I would continue with critiquing their second performances? No way…that you will have to watch on your own. But most went on to sound great and this will be a tough elimination. And of course the fans did not actually pick the songs…they were given songs to choose from which is a huge difference.
If I were to guess it will be Diamond and CeCe in the bottom tomorrow. But who knows…according to their chart America loves CeCe…UGHHHHH! PLEASE SANTA…MY WISH FOR CHRISTMAS IS THAT CECE GOES TO THE NORTH POLE!
Best performance of the night…once again Carly Rose.
On another note, Khole looked great tonight! Maybe she took my advice and fired her stylist. Definitely the best she has looked so far on the show.
