Simon and the Girls 9 14 2013

When Rylie Brown performed her song she almost forget the words of the song, but she recovered and made a tremendous come back. She had a great voice and determination. The judges like her and Simon said “you are the one to watch” meaning will she win the competition?

When Yosselm Marquez performed she sang and good voice, but why was she using her phone? She did not know the words of the song, but she had the lyrics on her phone. Is that how she cheats in school?  And yet she thought she would be a Latin bombshell Diva just like Paulina and the song she sang was a massacre.  It looked like she never saw the show and she did not know the rest of the judges, especially Simon.  She went home to her rock.

Roxxy Montana, sassy, adorable sibling trio who start strong on Jennifer Hudson’s “One Night Only.” But it quickly falls apart.  They regroup, however, and come back strong with an a cappella church song. And it work, with the right training they will do better when they got chosen to participant to be on the X-factor.

Denise Weeks, a subway singer, sang Whitney’s “Greatest Love of All” with the music track, but she was rushing with the song. Simon stopped the music and told her to sing a cappella and take her time and she did. She sang it perfectly with emotions.  No more singing in the Subway.

They should have shower install on the stage for contestants could sing in the shower.

Simone Torres sang and performed “Mustang Sally” it was good.  Her voice was bluesy and husky and bold.  If they can mold her into something modern, she could make it far.

Jorge Peña an Ice Cream truck sales and driver he knows his flavor with the girls and he’s a smooth operator. He sang good.  He insulted Demi by calling her woman and Demi did not like it. Paulina spoke to him in Spanish and he understood what she said. Paulina said in Spanish to straighten up with his behavior or go home immediately. I hope Demi doesn’t get him to be his Mentor. Background check anyone?

When a contestant Jocelyn Hinton sang, it was a little bad, but she kept on singing. The judges said no. It was not her calling to be a singer. So Simon walked her off the stage, because she would not go home.

When Russ Pouliot, elderly  sang Moon River the  generation gap of baby boomers or better yet generations X, the younger people booed him off. He did not sing good, it must have been generation Z, like in Zzzz. Asleep. Simon Cowel sang worst than him. If Simon was a music producer he could have used auto-tune it. They both went home. I meant the Russ went home.

So how was the show? With the new judges, all female judges and Simon included. It could be good.  Who will get what? The group, the over 25, boys and girls. The judges will be mentors of these contestants to be better singers and we will judge later when it comes to the live shows.
