View Full Version : The X Factor

(Thread for the Brit's)

So, we're into the live shows for The X Factor.

Who are you supporting and who do you think'll go far?

October 11th, 2009, 2:23 AM
You know who I don't think will go far? Any of the groups. They are the most shoddy category this year. :|

But I'm supporting the over 25's this year. And Lloyd - mostly because he sang Justin Timberlake well which makes him a winner. And maybe Rachel. I haven't decided. :>

October 11th, 2009, 2:24 AM
Nah, I like the group Miss Frank. I think they're good & gel quite well.
Danyl was really good although it was funny watching him sing a Dream Girls song xD

October 11th, 2009, 2:26 AM
I don't particularly agree. I rather think that the groups this year haven't been very good at all. Miss Frank are the best, but they're not all that good.

Danyl's brilliant - even though he does more harmonising than actual singing. XD;

October 11th, 2009, 2:28 AM
Miss Frank could be really good if Louis brings out the best in them (which he probably won't).

Danyl did sing it pretty well.

I hated how Simon said Jamie Archer's performance was in another league to the others. It wasn't.

October 11th, 2009, 2:32 AM
Louis doesn't have the knack of bringing out the best in people, it has to be said. It previous years, his acts haven't won because he hasn't chosen the right songs for them - except for JLS, but I believe they were the ones making the decisions.

I don't think anyone particularly outshine the others last night. For starting performances, they were fairly basic and didn't have an amazing amount of depth. I felt like last night was just them getting comfortable with the stage and just .. well, showing off their voices, really.

October 11th, 2009, 2:34 AM
Louis is a pretty weak mentor. Even with JLS he didn't bring out the best in them. Some weeks he continued to give them corny songs that didn't match the genre they were meant to be in.

Yeah, they were just getting to grips with being on a live singing show I reckon. I am praying we say goodbye to the twins tonight.

October 11th, 2009, 2:38 AM
The thing with Louis is he's so stuck in the ways of boy bands. He thinks corny songs are what appeals to the audience; which, granted, in some cases it does. But more and more people find those sort of songs to only work with particular boy bands. JLS didn't fit into that category at all and that's why some weeks they weren't the nation's favourite.
Of course, I could sing praises about JLS so I would blame Louis for them being in the bottom two or whatever. They totally should've won.

What I think is gonna happen is that the groups are going to go first and then the boys. I'll be honest, the choices Cheryl made were not the right ones. :|

October 11th, 2009, 2:42 AM
Olly Murs shouldn't have gotten through to the finals.. Treyc or Nicole should have gone through in the Over 25's.

I agree it would have been nice to see JLS win. Well they've been a bigger success than Alexandra Burke (so far) But I hear Alexandra Burke's got a new song with Flo Rida..

The Boys category was weak this year anyway.

Im happy as long as those HORRIBLE irish twins dont win! im sure thats like a billion to one chance :) but w/e, they suck

I agree the groups are pretty weak, i did like Miss Frank but now, they bore me slightly.

and obviously i wnat Danyl to win! He da man! ^_^

October 11th, 2009, 7:39 AM
My Sisiter was outraged that Tracey didnt get through to the live shows.

John & Edward really annoy me! They just can't sing, they can only (hardly) entertain. Louis mad a very bad choice, they definately wont win!

Either one of the singers from Simon's or Dani's groups will win this year. Lucie was stunning last night along with Danyl, I feel very sorry for him because some of the critiscm was slightly harsh.

I agree with Fiona here. Most of the groups are just average and some really didn't deserve to go through. Yes twins, I'm looking at you. My vote to win this year is probably Danyl - he's talented, good looking and confident. He looks like he'll take top prize.

October 11th, 2009, 8:04 AM
I'mma supporting that Danyl guy.
Mumma doesn't like him but i think he's alright.

And I *dislike* John and whathisname..

I think Danyl and Jamie were good. And Stacie has a good voice but her attitude is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO annoying. XD

It was unfair of Louis to put John and Edward through, on both J&E themselves and the other group (forgot) that would have been better.

I also think it was unfair on Danyl having to sing a girls' song. :\

P.S JLS suck.

That Lucy bird from Wales is just plain amazingly hot!
And she has an incredible voice.

I want her to win ^____^

October 26th, 2009, 3:59 AM
OMG! :O WTH are the twins still doing in the X Factor. Your ruining the friggin show! Simon's criticism is what you are.

As for Danyl, what are the public doing to him? Putting him in the bottom 2...

October 26th, 2009, 5:57 AM

Apart from wanting her to win, agreed. :D

I would have stopped watching this show after the audtions if it wasnt for John & Edward, I hope they win.

October 26th, 2009, 9:09 AM
The Twins are still in why? D=

I love Danyl. Lloyd is a cutie. Olly just has... Something.

Something about Lucie that I love. Her performance the other night was sensational. Even if she did "sing it like an actress."

But to win? I can't really decide. =\

October 26th, 2009, 9:17 AM
Who LIKE John & Edward? They Really Suck!
I want Jamie To win. He's Awesome! ^_^

October 26th, 2009, 9:58 AM
I have to agree with the general consensus - WHY are John and Edward still in?! They are much less talented than Miss Frank, and they aren't even good performers. I spend their whole songs wanting to curl up in a ball and cry.

As for who I'd like to see win; Danyl is my winner. He's really got the X-factor.

October 27th, 2009, 10:08 AM
It's shameful that John & Edward still remain in this competition. It's a complete joke.
It's also a complete joke that Miss Frank went out the competition.
Rachel was awesomesauce with her Tina Turner performance!

October 27th, 2009, 2:00 PM
Rachel owned! The twins are ruining the Show! GET 'EM OUT! The Irish are voting, it's horrible!

October 31st, 2009, 3:27 PM
who else thinks racheal rocked the show 2nite
and was a little dissapointed with jamie

stacey moved lol

Well actually most of Ireland can't vote & to be fair London is bigger (population wise) than Nothern Ireland so it wouldn't give them much advantage even if the Irish were the reason.

November 1st, 2009, 4:07 AM
Get John And Edward Out For God Sake They Suck ;_;

November 1st, 2009, 4:10 AM
I think it's a shame they actually are still in the competition. It's turning this show into a comedy show rather than a singing talent show.

On a more positive note, loved Rachel & Stacey.

November 1st, 2009, 4:22 AM
Hmm People Just Watch For A Laugh D:
And I Thought Lucie Jones Was Good :D

November 1st, 2009, 1:51 PM

why the hell did rachel get sent home she was one of the best performances of the night those twins are realy started 2 bug me now send them home so we can concentrate on some real talent

November 1st, 2009, 7:56 PM
I thought it was a fair decision to put it through to Deadlock, even though Lloyd was awful on Saturday night.

**** THIS ****!

X-FACTOR IS ********!
Bunch of *******!

Sorry! XD
Lucie is a God and Jon and Edward are a pair of idiots.


November 8th, 2009, 2:42 PM
I was in love with lucie..god.

I want to run over Jedward with a steam roller.

November 13th, 2009, 9:16 AM
Wtf was simon cowel thinking sending JEDWARD through? Its tactical voting!
Like only FORTNIGHT ago he was telling them they was bad, and shoving insults into their faces and then he has a chance to get rid of them and he puts it into deadlock.
I mean EVERYBODY who iv met thinks their bad, so WTF IS VOTING THEM IN???!!
Lucie could sing and actually had tallent, THEY are a peice of crap and cannot sing a note in tune.

Rant over.

November 13th, 2009, 9:27 AM
Ah, the wonders of being a girl; you aren't blinded by beauty.

Lucie Jones did have a good voice, but honestly guys, she was the most plain contestant. Every week she sang the same way, talked in the same way and just did generally the same things - much like Jamie Archer, but the man has an afro. Then she attempted to act the same as Stacey which just made her seem a bit at a loss and didn't really do much for her.

WTF IS VOTING THEM IN???!!Clearly you haven't been aware of how popular the twins are. They - along with Lloyd - get the most fanmail each week. So, while your friends might not be a fan, it seems a large population of the country are.

While I agree Simon Cowell only voted for Jedward so that his show would gain more popularity; it was ultimately down to the public audience that Lucie got booted out. Had the public thought she performed well enough, she would've had more votes. So, you can't just blame Cowell - he was only doing what he's always done.

And just saying, Jedward are the most entertaining contestants the show has had in years.

November 14th, 2009, 1:04 PM
Brighten up guys, Jedward make this show much less boring.

Shame Lucie had to go but to keep them in, sure.

December 13th, 2009, 1:39 PM
Well, Joe is the official winner this year! What are your thoughts?

I might be entering in a few years time, i'll blog me singing around Christmas...

December 13th, 2009, 3:14 PM
So, dear Joe won it. What a surprise.

If I'm honest, I'm not sure about the song choice. It's a nice song; cute and sweet, but it can get a bit tedious at some points. I'm not sure it's great for a debut single, y'know?
That aside, Joe sings it wonderfully. He sings a lot of stuff wonderfully. I guess that's part of the reason he won, along with looking adorable and endearing.

I may buy the single; I may not. I haven't been taking that much of an interest in The X Factor this year anyway...

Well, congratulations to Joe! I hope he goes on to become even more popular! ^_^
