X Factor Australia Live Show 3

October 4, 2011 by  

It was rock week and there were some better performances this week.  Three Wishez got mixed reviews but they were more together as a group this week.  Declan Sykes sang David Bowie’s Life on Mars.  He was given a different look but they shouldn’t mess about with him as he has a unique style.  Sang the song well but still prefer his version of Uprising by Muse from week 1.

Thought Jacqui Newland should have been given a better song than Shut Up and Drive.  She needed more powerful music and I think Mel B’s choices haven’t been right.  Not surprisingly (but a shame) she got voted off this week.

Reece Mastin was as rocky as ever – good unique voice and he sang Dream On.  Didn’t think YMS were as good, they didn’t seem very together and they ended up in the bottom two against Jacqui singing Walk This Way.  Andrew Wishart put in a good performance which was an emotional song for him (The Flame).  I think another Queen number or Meat Loaf song would be great for him.  I’d like to hear him sing The Show Must Go On by Queen.

Christina Parie, who shone for me in the first week, hasn’t had the best song choices – again from Mel B.  She is a real talent and needs some good powerful songs too, she can cope with it. This week she sang Gives You Hell.

Johnny Ruffo sang Here Without You and was better but I still don’t think he is has the best vocals and Mitchell Callaway also sounded better.  He still looks uncomfortable but that’s getting better.  He got a bit of a roasting by the judges for his attitude which was a bit humiliating in front of the audience – not the right place to do it.

Audio Vixen sounded really good tonight.  They did look more folky than rocky but sang well.
