X Factor – Live Show 3 – Miss Frank-ly Superb

October 25, 2009 by  

xfactor1Considering it was big band week, which is part of the series I always look forward to, I thought the show was extremely disappointing.

The acts did their best but yet again most of the judges didn’t choose great songs to show case the singers.

Miss Frank were brilliant this week, and I have to say Danyl was superb.  They were the best two last night.  Rachel finally looks the part and her new hair and make up brought out the best in her along with a good choice of song for her although I still think she needs a powerful ballad to seal her place in the show.

I did like Jamie, he will always perform well but Simon may have let him down this week.  The song was changed 24 hours before the live show to Angels of Harlem.  The original song should have been If I Can Dream.  Listening to the Elvis version I think Simon made the right decision to change it as I don’t think that song would have worked with Jamie’s voice.

Joe was great too but not the right song for him, he needs something to belt out.  Am I the only one who thinks Joe is like a young John Barrowman (that’s a good thing).

I’m also a fan of Lucie and Stacey, who always sing well, but didn’t inspire me last night.  On the tv Lucie seemed too close to the microphone and just needed a little more emotion.  I’m sure they could have handled some Shirley Bassey songs.  My Life orGoldfinger to name just two.  Songs that people can relate to.

And Olly, he was just . . . well Olly, cheeky chappy with a chirpy voice.

I’m sorry to say Lloyd is not a strong enough or diverse enough singer to make it in this show, even though he seems a lovely lad.  I don’t think Cheryl made the right choice in having Lloyd and Rikki in her top three.  Thing 1 and Thing 2 (aka John and Edward) have to go.  They just cannot sing.  The judges say they can entertain, but annoy is a more appropriate word.

Let’s see how the public vote tonight.

Update:  Can’t believe what happened.  The two acts I thought were the best Saturday night ended up being in the bottom two.  The only explanation is that people think they are being voted for so don’t.  So Danyl and Miss Frank ended up in the sing of and Danyl won based on the public vote.

Heading into week four the line up is now:

Simon Cowell

Olly Murs, Jamie Archer and Danyl Johnson

Cheryl Cole

Lloyd Daniels, Joseph McElderry

Louis Walsh

John & Edward

Dannii Minogue

Lucie Jones, Rachel Adedeji, Stacey Solomon

Dannii and Simon both have all their acts and Louis once again is losing out.
