X Factor Australia 5 – Results Week 9

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting a bottom two last night. There was one for the Bella Ferraro v The Collective last season, but there wasn’t one for Johnny Ruffo vs Three Wishez the year before that. Combine that with the fact that there were three guest performers tonight (Imagine Dragons, Little Mix, Tina Arena). I just assumed we weren’t going to have enough to get through all of Redfoo’s musings on what makes a great performer fun, and Natalie feeling bad for anyone in the bottom two, and Ronan stating that he isn’t voting strategically and would get mad if someone was and that voting strategically. What was this article about? Oh yes results below.

THIRD D3GREE delivered a really solid vocal of fun and control on Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love.” I presume that one reason they opted for a bottom two was to try and eliminate Jai over 3D if he had been in the bottom two with them. But since it was Taylor Henderson instead, they had to contend with going to deadlock. I wish I could say that 3D deserved a spot in the finale over Taylor, but the performances that they did on the week 9 live show weren’t insanely better than everyone else to warrant the shift. Taylor did a safe performance of “Stand by Me,” but for him it is par for the course and it led him to the grand final. I’m glad we got at the very least to see one last performance out of 3D and I am glad it went to deadlock so that the fourth place vote getter went home, even if that act was 3D. I still think Taylor has a decent shot to win this thing. But maybe I should be taking note of the fact he was in the bottom two. I suppose in part I am expecting some voter backlash and resurgence in Taylor votes because of this bottom two appearance.

Best of luck to the final 3. Thanks for reading. Ed.

    If it was between Jai and Third D3gree, 3D will get the shot of final 3. But seriously, I was shocked at Jai getting through, but Taylor in bottom 2. His performance went to no.1 iTunes australia! Imo, this is the most ridiculous bottom 2 since the live show! none of them deserve to go home! and I guess no.1 doesnt mean 100% safe! I still hope 3D the best and wish them success. Now I will spend my votes on Dami and Taylor. Sorry, but Jai is not ready to win X-Factor!

    I knew that a little kid on tears on stage after messed up his performance would creat some bust on votes.

    Okay first off If you base the save off the sing off THIRD D3GREE definitely deserved to be saved over Taylor his was a throw away performance. It was like he didn’t even try it was very boring. Now he was probably in shock since he was number one on itunes and still had like six songs charting on Itunes that felt like a slap in the face I know you’ll save me no matter what.
    THIRD D3GREE were excellent they brought the energy and the vocals to the performance.
    I can’t believe Red Foo stood for both those performances, Taylor certainly didn’t deserve it. I feel like he really wanted to vote to save THIRD D3GREE but he knew the public would hate him for it so he took it to deadlock. For a second I thought he’d go w/ his heart and save them but nope. I prayed so hard they managed to squeak past Taylor but no such luck. I’m certain if they were in the bottom w/ Jai they would of been saved but when it was Taylor I knew the score.

    Now that the votes revealed Jai was in the top two after 2 weak performances I know he’s number one. He’s gonna win and I want him to win now simply b/c I want Australia to get what they deserve. They went for cute over talent. Well I want them to choke on it I want them to see what a poor winner he’ll be. I want the Second, Third, and Fourth place finishers to all get deals and all outsell Jai. I want people to think how in the world could we of chosen this kid over them. So win Jai take it all.
    I’m done w/ this I wish I was from Australia so I could help drop the ratings. THIRD D3GREE was the only act I cared about and now they’re gone yet Jai remains it sickens me. I’ll be on the look out for anything else they put out maybe they’ll get to do something for the finale if all the contestants return.
    Fingers crossed someone gives them a deal, anyone.

    Oh and Someone uploaded the results and they edited it to include something which accurately expressed my feelings as well once Jai’s name was called for making it in the Top 2. I was so mad.

    I agree with you. I hope 3D will get a recording contract!

  • Blackbeat

    I have a feeling that Jai is going to win the show now. I can’t imagine how Australia will react to him winning though…

    Can’t believe the racist attacks Dami is getting right now on Facebook.
