Previous Episode: The X Factor Australia Season Four – Who Will Be Lost In ‘80s Fever?
X Factor tonight celebrates the here and now of the music scene- but are some of these hits really classified as ‘today’?
Luke tells us there will be amazing special guests over the next few weeks. The judges then talk up this week. The contestants were happy to find out they are singing songs they knew.
Now, to the singing.
Judges’ Comments: Natalie says it was the best opening of the show so far. She praises song choice. Guy says it was a great way to open the show and called it tough. Mel was tapping her foot a little bit and loved their energy. She loved the routine. They killed it. Well bloody done!
Judges’ Comments: Ronan very much loved it. Natalie loved how he was giving it his all. Guy says it felt like he was singing it to a special somebody. Mel makes a comment about him crying. A dig at some of Natalie’s contestants last week?
Judges’ Comments: Guy thought she’d be an Adele girl but has to say he was waiting for it to erupt but didn’t feel it. Mel says she always delivers, but says she’s a bit too ‘deer-in-the-headlights’. Ronan hears the other guys, but says she deserves to be here. He blames the song choice.
Judges’ Comments: Mel loved the song choice but says his outfit didn’t match the song. Therefore, she felt he gave an uptight performance. Ronan thought the verses were weak but the chorus were strong. He expected more. Natalie says he is a star. He has everything this show is about.
Judges’ Comments: Natalie says this is what they should have been doing for weeks. Guy loved the song choice and how stripped back it was. He felt William was nervous though and thought Zach didn’t seem to contribute much. It wasn’t perfect. Mel says they all held their own.
Judges’ Comments: Guy loves what she does and has confidence she is an artist. He loved the performance but wants to see more ‘Bella’. Mel doesn’t think she tried to copy her and thanks her for it. Ronan has been worried for her but says it was magical.
Judges’ Comments: Mel goes to hug her and tells her she was hot and edgy. She wished she could have seen that since week one. Ronan also loves it. He says she’s ‘done it’. Natalie calls her phenomenal.
