This week’s theme was “Love and Heartache”, which basically includes every song ever written.
Before we get into this, there are two noteworthy points.
1. SeeSee from Miss Dynamix (the pregnant one) fell ill, so the band didn’t perform this week. They’ve been given a pass to next week.
2. Louis Walsh wore a silk tie.
Right, let’s get started.
Robin Thicke is quite ‘head of sales at the Christmas party’ isn’t he? #xfactor
It’s always a pleasure to hear a Perry live vocal. #noitisnt #XFactor
10. Shelley Smith warbled Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SHELLEY (your singing wasn’t very good). Despite surviving last week’s sing off, Shelley Smith didn’t really improve. I want her to be my aunt so much, but I don’t want to see her strutting her stuff to “Single Ladies”, soz.
She found herself in the bottom two on Sunday night.
Was that twerking? Did she just twuck? #xfactor
THIS FACT IS FULLY MENTAL.
Shelley is the same age as Sophie Ellis-Bextor #xfactor
Abi you stepped out of your comfort zone and you did it! #PROUD #SCHERZYGIRLS
I don’t understand why Rough Copy are always wearing skirts?! Am I missing something…
7. Kingsland Road sang Bruno Mars’ “Marry You”.
Kingsland Road would like everyone to know that they are single and available and you should vote for them. But, despite their excellent hair, you didn’t. And they found themselves with the lowest number of votes and in the sing off.
Thanks to everyone who voted for us tonight, we’re gutted. But as always, we’ll pick ourselves up, and sing for our LIVES tomo. All our love
Aaaaand if the singing thing doesn’t work out, they could become professional tan ambassadors.
They’ve got the money out of that fake tan machine this week. #kingslandroad #xfactor
6. Hannah Barrett shouted “Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hannah Barrett cries a lot and feels really insecure. BUT WHY? She has an amazing voice, she’s a national singing competition on the telly and she’s bezzie mates with Nicole Scherzinger. A little less screeching and a lot less crying would do Hannah wonders.
i love you hannah Barrett! you bring tears to my eyes when you sing #xfactoruk
Luke Friend looks like a cocaine-ravaged Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Benny from Crossroads. #XFactor
This is like Gap Year: The Musical #xfactor
Worst Life of Pi remake ever #xfactor
Sam can show me his vocals any day. Sorry I meant penis, he can show me his penis anyday. #XFacfor
But then he engaged in some light Twitter bribery, which was annoying.
If I get through to next week tonight I’ll do a follow spree on route home x
Sam Bailey I’m still speechless
2. Nicholas McDonald kissed a dancer on the cheek and it was the cutest thing ever.
He sang Robbie Williams’ “She’s The One.” Here’s a three-line poem I wrote for him:
Nicholas McDonald you are so cute,
I’m really glad that you’re not mute,
I hope you never get the boot.
“It’s hard to sing a song about love because I’ve never been in love” No it’s not. I once sang Come On Eileen and I’ve NEVER done that.
