X Factor – The Final! – VIDEO

Eliminated Tonight: Stacey Solomon – VIDEO

Olly Murs and Joe McElderry will appear on the X Factor Finale tomorrow, when the winner will be announced. It’ll probably be Joe.   Was it just me, or did Simon look totally shocked when Olly made it through?   I wasn’t shocked.   I expected Stacey would go out third.

Videos and Recap after the JUMP…

  • Live Feeds: HERE and HERE and HERE.   The show begins at 2:30 ET.

Simon Cowell tweeting from Sinitta’s phone: “Hi its simon here, its too much to do this during the show I can’t concentrate, so this is my first and probably last tweet! Enjoy the show!” Sinitta tweets, “S just gave me my phone back I don’t know what happened he said he too nervous can’t focus or something..so sorry guys but he stressed out.”   Damn, Simon promised to tweet! That would have been epic…

It’s the X Factor Final peeps.   Tomorrow, a new X Factor winner will be crowned.   Home visits for Stacey, Joe and Olly this final week…

The first round is finished, and the phone lines are open.   The contestant in third place will leave TONIGHT..

Here’s the song list for tonight:

Songs from 1st audition:

Stacey Solom0n – Wonderful World –   One of her best vocals of the competition. On pitch, more or less –   VIDEO
Olly Murs – Superstition –   Olly’s audition wasn’t that impressive, and this performance doesn’t do much to change my mind. The routine with the dancing girls re-enforces his image as the “drunk uncle at a wedding.” Not that Simon ever called him on that. –   VIDEO
Joe McElderry – Dance With My Father –   A lovely boy, with lovely vocals.   I find him rather dull, but then I remember reacting to David Archuleta the same way, and his people managed to record some very catchy, radio friendly music with him.   –   VIDEO


Stacey Solomon and Michael Buble – Feeling Good – Stacey got through this pretty well. If she was nervous, I couldn’t tell.   Buble was a very gracious singing partner. VIDEO
Olly Murs and Robbie Williams – Angels – OMG. A frigging mess, no thanks to Robbie, who seemed to be going through the motions here.   First, he totally missed his cue, and then wasn’t really there for HIS partner, and Olly could have used his help. Too bad –   VIDEO
Joe McElderry
and George Michael – Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me – George Michael isn’t the singer he once was, but this was still pretty good, and the best of the three duets.   – VIDEO

Songs from the Series:

Stacey Solomon – Who Wants To Live Forever – She still manages to sing under-pitch the entire song.   The judges way over-praise this performance –   VIDEO
Olly Murs – Fool In LoveOlly is a super-entertaining performer, but I wonder if Simon will sign him anyway after he loses tomorrow.   He doesn’t seem very marketable to me. But maybe there’s some genre of music in the UK, where Olly will fit perfectly? –   VIDEO
Joe McElderry
– Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word –   Joe manages to sing on pitch and with feeling.   Yeah, faint praise, I know. But his crop of competitors have had a hard time with even the most fundamental skills one would expect from a singer.   I’ll be shocked if Joe doesn’t win tomorrow, and afterward, he’ll make a perfectly pleasant record.   Not sure if I”m seeing the “X Factor” here, though. – VIDEO

Robbie Williams – Performs “You Know Me”   Eh. I can’t stop thinking about that creepy video with the bunny ears.   I still feel the same way as I did when Robbie’s peeps tried to break him here in the US.   Watching him perform   “Millenium” on my TV a decade ago, I couldn’t figure out what the fuss was about. I still can’t. – VIDEO
