Can the charm of the ‘80s be injected in the final eight, and wipe out all memory of last week’s performances?
Luke talks to the judges about what the ‘80s meant to the judges. He then touches on the stabbing of Lazy J, a performer who nearly made it onto the 2010 series of the show. It’s now time for the performances.
Judges’ Comments: Ronan tells him well done and compliments the song choice. Ronan has no negative. Natalie thought the song was great for him and loves his confidence. Guy thinks he delivered his best vocals yet.
Judges’ Comments: Guy welcomes her back to the competition. He loved the risks she took and congratulates her for it. Mel thinks it was one of her best performances. Ronan was at the Angel show- he loved every minute of it.
Judges’ Comments: Mel didn’t like it as the setting looked bogan, and she didn’t feel the reggae. Ronan gets what Mel was saying as it didn’t work for him. Natalie loved how he got his guns out and disagrees with the others- it was chilled and relaxed.
Judges’ Comments: Natalie says it was so nice to hear their vocals and says they blended really beautifully. Guy thought it was very cool and really loved the first half of the performance. Guy calls them great singers. Mel loved the song choice and said their voice was beautiful. There was not one thing she didn’t like.
Judges’ Comments: Bella breaks down after her song for some reason. Guy doesn’t know what she’s upset about because the performance was brilliant. It’s his most favourite thing she’s done. Mel says she did a great performance as well. She isn’t sure about the dress, though. Both Natalie and Mel have given her a hug at this point. Ronan jokes that he was going to give her a hard time before she cried before saying her performance was brilliant.
Judges’ Comments: Mel thought it was a bit cheesy and wanted something edgier. Ronan agrees- it was a good performance, but they want more. Natalie doesn’t think she could have gone any more modern and loved it.
Judges’ Comments: Guy thought it was really beautiful. Shiane breaks down as she tells us what this song means to her. Mel likes how she is keeping it together but wasn’t a fan of it this week. Ronan thinks it was her best performance so far. Natalie congratulates her.
Judges’ Comments: Natalie disagrees with Ronan- it was a daggy song choice for them. Guy loved the rap in the song. Mel says sexy is BACK!
