Good Question

 

So there we have it, the top twelve have been chosen. If this is going to be the year we’re going to get a female winner, there’s not a lot to choose from! And really, I think Ronan is trying way too hard to find a One Direction replicate. Replace WAT with Good Question and I think we’d have some strong groups!

The X Factor Australia next airs Sep 17 at 7.30PM on Seven

    the top 12 are finally here and most of them are perfect except for the groups.
    Was it really nessecery to have 3 boy bands clearly they are trying to create a one direction clone and im not impressed. Good question should have made it in over wat oh and d&d should have got in over fortunte at least then the groups whould have some diversity. and and running over by 20 minutes was unnessercy

    I agree with Ryno, running over 20 minutes was really unnecessary, because there were too many ads and some decisions were stretched out.
    The girls were really hard to pick because all of six of them were really good. After Bella’s first audition I thought she would easily go into top 12, before she stumbled in bootcamp (twice). Only the judges were willing to give her so many chances to improve because she has a great voice, hope she does not waste her opportunity.
    I feel sorry for Morgan and Vendulka. Vendulka is a few months younger than Shiane and also has a good voice, but Natalie feels that Vendulka as a folk singer limits her chances to succeed in this competition. I would have loved to see her performing a pop or rock song. As for Morgan, her elimination is a big blow as it means a return to struggle street (she is living on food parcels in Sydney), and I fear we won’t hear her again.
    Did you know that Shiane’s favourite singer is Jessica Mauboy, because both girls are from NT and both are of indigenous descent? Shiane is also the second Territorian (after Mauboy) to make it to the final 12 of a reality singing competition.
    Chris Cayzer abandoned his promising showbiz career in Philippines to return to Australia to care for his parents and saw The X Factor as his second chance. His fortunes were being followed by Philippines media outlets. Now he has failed to make it into top 12, it will be interesting to see if he returns to Philippines to resume his career.
    Guy’s pick of his good friend Samantha Jade is certainly controversial and raises the question of favoritism. Conversely, will Guy be very strict on Samantha just so for her to win the competition?
