Previous Episode: The X Factor Australia Season Four – Top 8 Do The ‘80s
The contestants had ‘80s fever last night, but one of them will not be able to shake it off. Who will be eliminated tonight?
Guest: Jay Sean
Talk then turns to the night that was. Wasn’t it just a good night? Don’t know why people were criticising the theme. I didn’t know half the songs and I thought these guys did alright, thank you very much.
Now it is time for some returning alumni- 2011 winner Reece Mastin. Not quite sure what to make with his newfound arrogance- I mean cockiness- I mean confidence.
Bottom Two Results
A quick recap of the groups;
RONAN KEATING – GROUPS
NATALIE BASSINGTHWAIGHTE – GIRLS
GUY SEBASTIAN – OVER 25’S
MEL B – BOYS
And here’s the placings. These were read out in NO particular order.
FIRST SAFE – Fourtunate
SECOND SAFE – Shiane Hawke
THIRD SAFE – Nathaniel Willemse
FOURTH SAFE – The Collective (Ronan is safe)
FIFTH SAFE – Bella Ferraro
SIXTH SAFE – Jason Owen
That means ANGEL TUPAI and SAMANTHA JADE will face the BOTTOM TWO.
Really? Just, really? I think it is time to whittle down these girls. One question I have is, if The Collective were ever put in the bottom two, would the judges seriously vote to lose them?
OK, now it’s time for that Big Brother song. Sorry, I just can’t listen to it anymore without thinking of that Big Brother ad!
And now for the part which will be remembered for a while- Mel B learning the moves! Oh this is hilarious! I had to rewatch it!
And here comes the showdown!
MEL B: Samantha Jade
NATALIE BASSINGTHWAIGHTE: Samantha Jade
GUY SEBASTIAN: Angel Tupai
RONAN KEATING: Angel Tupai
Due to dreadlock, the public has decided that ANGEL TUPAI has been eliminated from The X Factor Australia 2012 in EIGHTH PLACE.
Not that I wanted Samantha Jade to leave, the fact Angel Tupai has left the competition NOW is an absolutely shemozzle. This reminds me of Australian Idol 2008 when Madam Parker was eliminated ninth. Such a beautiful singer- but is it possibly her lack of appeal that led to an early elimination? Australia seems obsessed with hip-hop and R&B singers. Why don’t others get a chance? Reece and Altiyan- these are the people we call ‘winners’ (and to be fair, Reece has gone on to great things and he does produce some awesome vocals)- but when someone like Tupai or Parker walks on stage, their angelic voices carries them as far as the teen-female voting base tolerates them to.
Hopefully Tupai’s future is more on the ‘Rikki-Lee’ side of the unfair eliminee scale, and she doesn’t end up like Madam.
The X Factor Australia next airs Oct 22 at 7.30PM on Seven
