ETA: Videos added!
Tonight TOP 32 ( 4 categories x 8 ) will be unveiled. But first, the judges will manufacture 6 NEW GROUPS. Yeah. Let’s hope there is at least one group with the potential to be this year’s One Direction.
Ooops, we are late. For some reason, tonight’s show started half an hour earlier than usual.
Final challenge: Performance in front of 5000 people at Wembley arena
David Wilder – Edge of Glory
He certainly isn’t on the edge of glory… the audience boooos. And now some are clapping because he shut up.
Chrissie Pitt stands on the judges’ table and screams at the judges … Yep, she blew it.
And then there is some guy singing “Survivor” (Destiny’s Child) and dancing flamenco?
Kendro – They are rapping, I don’t recognize the song.
Omg her eyelashes! She sings Feeling Good. She is wearing something Britney Spears would wear on tour and screams. At the end, the lights in her her outfit start flashing. Never mind the screaming, the audience gives her a standing ovation. Well …
Frankie Cocozza – “Iris” by The Goo Goo Dolls
It’s passable, but his vocal limitations are clearly showing. He is really trying hard. The audience loves him.
Another average bloke, the girls love him.
His “Iris” is a little better, but damn, I hate this affected “Aiden Grimshaw” delivery. It’s so 2010.
They suck this time, but the females in the audience go crazy again. Whatever.
Goldie Cheung – “Feeling Good”
Well, this certainly is original. She climbs on the piano and shows everyone her panties. Then she chases Gary around the arena. Poor guy can’t believe she is still in the competition, but Kelly loves her.
Nu Vibe – manufactured boyband
They look kinda good together and the judges see that. “They have the look.” And that’s all that really matters, really. They sing “Grenade” by Bruno Mars. Hmm, I think these guys are fast learners. The audience goes crazy. Yup, I think these 5 will be this year’s One Direction. It’s incredible what being in a boyband can do for you.
More manufactured girlbands and boybands. Two girlbands bomb, but the others have potential.
“One” by U2. He butchers the lyrics. Zzzzz
Janet Devlin – I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing (Aerosmith)
Ugh, I think this song is totally too big for her, but the judges and everyone in the arena think she’s brilliant?
