SIMON COWELL PLEASE WATCH MY VIDEO AND LISTEN TO YOUR FANS! WHO WON THE X FACTOR 2012?
The X Factor finals aired tonight and they can only hope that millions tuned in to see who would win. It was down to soulful singer Carly Rose Sonenclar, instant mega-group Fifth Harmony and country singer Tate Stevens.
They opened the show as many have this week, with at tribute to Sandy Hook Elementary School victims. It was a great rendition of Michael Jackson’s hit song “You Are Not Alone” with the full cast of contestants. The back-drop of the victims names, with heartfelt vocals, was a special way to honor the 26 innocent victims who lost their lives. It seemed especially touching for Vino Alan, who was extremely passionate during his small part.
First to hit the stage was my favorite singer, Carly Rose Sonenclar. Singing a repeat of “Feel Good”, she received huge praise from the judges. I guess you can take the risk of singing it again, if you nail it. Carly is definitely an “old soul”, because she has vocal ability far beyond a 13-year-old.
Tate Stevens was next up and continued to stay consistent. Right now it’s probably his to lose, since the country fans are solid and extremely loyal. He also has a very pure demeanor and his incredible voice adds to his appeal. Although he also sang a repeat…at least he sounded great. It actually sounded better than the first time.
Surprise finalist Fifth Harmony were put in a great position being third. Their mantra “anything could happen”...seems to be working in their favor. They may be underdogs, but never really have been given proper credit and could potentially pull ahead. Once again, their harmony was spot on and singing “Anything Could Happen” was my absolute favorite performance from them throughout the show. When I push rewind multiple times…it’s a hit! Could not get this song out of my head, this time nor the last.
The contestants went on to perform new songs with top artists and all rocked the house. Carly and LeAnn Rimes (was she drunk?). Tate and Little Big Town. Fifth Harmony and Demi Lavato. It will be a tough night for viewer’s because they are all equally talented. Great duo’s…great performances. Demi just won me back as a fan of her music…but she’s still a better singer than judge. And Carly singing Hallelujah was my favorite performance of the night. Finally…chills. Second favorite…Fifth Harmony “Let It Be”…chills again.
To switch gears…it’s still shocking to me that The X Factor has such low ratings. Incredible talent..check. Amazing stage sets…check. Stellar song choices…check. Oh wait…HORRIBLE judges…uncheck. Too many hosts…uncheck. Too many changes…uncheck.
Maybe Simon should have let Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger stick around at least one more season before changing it up… they would have been loyal for sure. I will keep posting my video tips above until SIMON COWELL listens to his fans. Come on hit play already! Love the show and want it to succeed!
Who will win The X Factor? It will very likely come down to Carly and Tate. I’m hopeful Carly will win the $5 million dollar prize, but would not be surprised if Tate runs away with it. Love Fifth Harmony, but not sure they will have the fan votes, however, they will have an incredible music career.
Any bad performances tonight? Absolutely not!
On another note…Did Britney send Carly to hat school? Was Khloe playing school girl dress-up? Sorry, she looked ridiculous. Maybe she did not fire her stylist after all. And my mom was pissed they repeated songs…but they probably had to stick with what got them here in the first place. Playing it safe…sometimes works.
