X Factor Review Show Five

Posted: 09/09/2012 21:45

Ladies and gentlemen, give a huge round of applause as we welcome back to the X Factor, Ms Leona Lewis.

Our first treat tonight, following my roast beef and Yorkshire pudding dinner, was the singing Russell Brand, aka Eddy String. Annoying, yes, can he sing no, was it entertaining, a little. Not for me. Too soon for another Frankie.

Leona fan, (good girl) Amy from Essex sang an Adele song and she was a cut above the rest. A young girl with a big future ahead if her. Anyone who can impress Leona is a good enough in my books. The only way is Amy!

Here comes the girls indeed, Georgia, Charlotte and Sharon were all brilliant and it will be interesting to see how they do at bootcamp.

GMTV, I mean GMD3, were tight in the harmonies, but the individual vocals need to step up a notch. That said,  I did enjoy their performance, and there is no doubting that they are ones to watch.

The groups were now out in force and trio MK1 made their mark with the judges.  Well two of them anyway. Guess which one didn't fit in...sorry mate, but Gary was right, huge pat on the back though, for letting them carry on without you.

Does Simon Cowell know Britney Spears has taken time out from X Factor USA, oh hold on it's not.

Lorna Bliss rounded off tonight's auditions and a couple of things stood out for me (leave it) I mean her energy and passion, sadly the vocal isn't good enough. Shame.

So with just two audition shows to go, the main contenders for my 2012 X Factor Midas act are Lucy Spraggan and Melanie Masson. 

Will anyone come along and change my mind? Time will tell.
