X-Factor: One more Week

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The X-factor has there top three who will performed again for the finally along side with The Voice on NBC. Both of these show will tried a ratings grabbers next week and who will watch the most. Either on Monday and Tuesday for The Voice nor Wednesday and Thursday for the X-factor.

Alex and Sierra , Jeff Gutt, and Carlito Olivero are the top three contenders while Restless Road leaves the show or be back for the finally on next week results show.

The show started with a group number  Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” was followed by a package of the recap in case anyone missed it. Did you?

Then Mario Lopez asked each contestant why he or she should win the X-Factor and their mentors, their answer were “We love everyone, we deserve to win, I hope we are not in danger, we are doing great and please vote us.” No one should go home, but there is only one winner who will be crowned as the winner. America has to vote for their favorite acts to win.

Since they were four acts and one of them has to go and who will stay in the competition, the intensity of suspense of the audience grew louder and louder screaming out there favorite acts of who will stay. Then Mario announced “After the break” and crowd simmer down and the JC Penny commercial with the Christmas carolers singing “Feliz Navidad.”

The Top Four

And now the results, Carlito Olivero safe.

Next was Alex and Seria, Safe

That leaves Restless Road and Jeff Gutt. More intense.

Simon loses another group, which was Restless Road. Simon was disappointed. Simon please don’t be disappointed, they had their chance and he has one group left and which is Alex and Sierra they were fantastic performers. I hope they win and Simon will be very happy and he’s very competitive of having one of his groups to win the X-factor.

So do you think the right acts made it?

X-Factor: Khaya Cohen and Tim Olstad Going Home

We lose two x-factor contestants; it was Khaya Chohen and Tim Olstad. It was Britain music for the night at the X-factor.

Khaya sang “Let it Be” by the Beatles. She could have sung another Britain musician like Amy Winehouse and she will stay. The Beatles were the pioneer of the music industry in the UK.  Beatles songs are great, they have wonderful songs and the contestants sang them good, but aren’t we tired to hear Beatles song sung by the contestants. They have other British performers.

“How do you feel?” Mario asked.

“I feel okay. It kind of suck but I am going to keep going for what I going for in this competition. It was a pleasant experience” Khaya  said.

Demi mention that she has one of the best voices and don’t stop singing and she would make it.  Would she go to Broadway?  Or find a new life in California and get a record contract.

Then it was down to two boys, the judges have to save one of them.  Carlito Olivero and Tim Olstad, this is difficult for Paulino she had to let go one of them. They were both incredible singers. This happened to Paula Abdul during the first season of the xfactor, she had difficult time to let one of them to go. The host has to remind Paulino to make a decision.  The final verdict came from Kelly Rowland, Paulino and Demi it was time for Tim to go home.  Simon Cowell did not get a chance to vote.  One of these days, it will be a dead lock when the judges cannot decided and they go by the TV audience votes.

The judges don’t care. If the judges wanted their contestants to succeed in this competition, they have to help them out and what they need to be a winner. Don’t blame the contestants. They have to give their best performance. Blame the mentors; they pick their song for they can sing.

For America voters you have to vote for your favorites and keep them in running to be the next X-factor. The judges influence did not help the America voters. America people have to vote for their favorites and keep them for they can win, more like a popularity contest, that’s why Khaya left.

The results why the people are not voting, is because one of his act went home and with the glitch they had and why they have to perform again, probably not enough votes. Therefore, the contestants have to sing again and the contestants pick the song they like to sing. Simon’s team stayed. And when Sweet Suspense went home a week ago, Simon admitted the results were a joke. Meaning, what was America people doing when they watch the show and the judges urges America people to vote for their favorite for they can stay in the competition. Of course, it was America fault for not voting. The Xfactor want to make a star out of the contestants. If American does not like the judges and their opinion, vote for favorite and they could stay and prove the contestants do have talent.

Why two people left last week, probably they wanted to compete with The Voice and Dancing with The Stars.  The shows will be too close with each other and who will watch? It looks they wanted to end the show in December before Christmas.  Will they be another double elimination coming up next weeks to come? Thanksgiving and Christmas will be coming soon.

 

Xfactor: Good bye Sweet Suspense and Rachel Porter

Sweet Suspense
Sweet Suspense

As you may it’s a sad day, Sweet Suspense was eliminated from the Xfactor.

Demi Lovato was too smart and to admit, that Sweet Suspense performance was not great, they were good. It must have been the blue dye from her hair, which sinks into her brain.  Sweet Suspense was great even though Simon picked a fun song and a recognizable song. He could have picked a better fun song from the 1980’s that we never heard of and put a spin of the original song and they could have stayed. Or blame American people for not voting for their favorite contestants. It must have been the female fans, who like the boy singers on the show.

Birmingham native Millie Thrasher and her group, Sweet Suspense, were the first act eliminated tonight on “The X Factor.” The pop trio left the Fox reality series within the first 15 minutes of the broadcast, and there was no opportunity for a judges’ save or last-chance sing-off.

Thrasher, 14, leaves the show after making it into the ranks of the top 12 finalists. “We’re just so grateful to be here and the fact that you put us together and gave us a whole new experience. So happy to have these two amazing girls beside me” Millie Thrasher said. After host Mario Lopez delivered the bad news.

Sweet Suspense’s mentor, Simon Cowell, appeared surprised and disgruntled when the results from viewer voting were announced. Sweet Suspense had performed Toni Basil’s “Mickey” on Wednesday’s broadcast, relying on his guidance and advice.

“I can’t believe it they were fantastic last night. Girls it was not your fault. I don’t  know what happen here. I don’t want to be rude there were other acts that were worse.” Simon said. He was shocked to hear Sweet Suspense going home  that evening.  The remaining judges love there performance, but Demi said it worst performance. She was shaking her head and not blaming the group, of course it was Demi remarks that they went home. Demi did not want to say anything.

“The journey is just beginning!” quoted by Mille Thrasher on her Twitter account.

Selena Gomez performed her song:

5th Harmony performed their song

Khaya Cohen

Khaya Cohen was saved by the judges because of her impressive vocals when she sang “Just don’t give up on me”

“How did you feel?” Mario Asked

“I feel good. I really wanted to sing that song. So if I am stuck in the bottom two I know. I made it.” Khaya Cohen said.

So Rachel Porter is going home.

Why do the judges can’t make a quick decision they know Mario is the MC of the show and he is constant talking to the producer and director through his earpiece? Make a quick decision. Demi is not the MC of the show Mario is the host of the show. One of these days they will have dead lock decision and Mario have to give the results of who will win that round.

XFactor: It’s 80’s night and one eliminated

It’s eighty’s night on the x-factor last night, but last week no one went home because the votes were not counted, but the X-factor had technical difficulties with their graphics department but they fixed it overnight. It was crunch time with the performance on last Thursday and they had to squeeze 13 acts for one hour. The contestants pulled it off and they sang great.

Carlos Guvera

Carlos Guvera, Paulina Boys, went home last night.  “It’s been the best experience of my life and I got to whatever I do and these guys are my best friends and they are going to be awesome,” Carlos said.

“You are inspiration so honor to be working with you. The hearts of all America you did was great. Keep going, keep doing and a champion” Paulino said to Carlos on his departure to fame when leaving X-factor.

Lille McCloud

Lillie McCloud, in 1986 her stage name was Nicole McCloud and she had a single called “Don’t you want me” it was hit that did not go too far. She was so close to make it as a singer. She can sing. She has that drive to be successful. When she audition the doors were always closing on her, but she has to focus on her children and be a mother to her children. Tonight she sang Chaka Khan “Ain’t nobody” She was good and she shined on stage. She had a wonderful time and determine to win the competition.

Carlito Olivero

Carlito Olivero his father and family flew in from Chicago to give him support. He doesn’t want to work behind the bar and be server. He wants to have a singing career. His father his proud of him and this give him the motivation to be a better performance.  Tonight Carlito  sang “Rhythm is going to get you”  and the rhythm did get him and he was great.  He needs to be suave and cool. Demi like the dancers instead of his performance, maybe the blue hair dye seek into Demi’s head and causing her to seep into her brain..

Rion Page

Rion Page 13, she wasn’t born in the 1980’s she thought the Spice Girls were in the 1980 that was the 1990’s. She sang, “We belong together” by Pat Benedar a fantastic performer. She’s a hard worker and a great performer and she brings out the best in her performance. Even though the track broke in the middle of the song, she sang it. Did not notice.

Sweet Suspense is sang Toni Basil “Nicki” a cheerleader song.  I remember this song. Even my school in the 1984 used this song for the cheerleader routine for the pep rally. The cheerleaders were hot back then, that was then. Now the Sweet Suspense girls rock the song on stage. The song is a fun song and they are young. But hard work pays off when they have to practice. The girls rock their performance. Even the girls dressed like in 1980’s when they go to school. It was the best performance of the night. The blue dye in Demi  hair was still seeping into her brain.

Tim Olstad sang “Against all Odds” Paulino told him to sing it and make it his own. When Tim read his Twitter feed Sarah Hyland from ‘Modern Family’ on ABC contact him to have dinner and him practical advice.

One of Sarah Hyland advice for Tim she mention. “It’s naturally to be nervous. Take everything in and let it go. Through your voice and show emotion. Good luck. Be Confident and show emotion” Sarah Hyland said. Great advice from Sarah.

This is Tim dream and he really want to make it in this competition of the Xfactor, if not someone please give him a chance. He deserve it.

“Tim gave it all And his best.” Paulino said

The rest of the judges disagree with Tim. I hope people voted for him to stay. Keep him.

Khaya Cohen

Khaya Cohen sang “Boderline.”by Madona The song is more like her style she have to bring her best performance on stage.  She was absolutely fantastic. Even Demi was happy and giggling when Khaya came close to Demi and Simon.  She’s now showing personality and confident. She keeps getting better. Her best performance for the night.  Is Demi jealous from the other contestants, but she likes her own team.

Restless Road

Restless Road sang Footloose and it was a fun  song.  Remember when having fun, they have to work hard in bringing their performance to the stage? That’s what they did.  They cut loose and they bring their Sunday shoes.

Rachel Potter started singing in 1989 and sang silly songs and dance. What she has to do is stay consistent, take a moment, stay within the zone, and use emotion when singing. Last night she sang “How do I get you alone now.” She’s an amazing singer and a proper song to perform and she wanted to be country singer.

Ellona Santiago

Ellona Santiago sang “I Wanted To Dance with Somebody.” Her performance was great and she looked good. She has a great voice and she doesn’t need the background dancers. Her voice commands the room.

Simon Cowell in 1980’s

Simon Cowell 1980

Josh Levi

Joss Levi sang “Straight Up” Paula Abdul song.  He sang and dance. In able to sing and dance he has to breath between the singing and dancing. He is a good performance and a great singer.

Jeff Gutt

Jeff Gutt sang “Dying into your arms tonight.” What causes his sleeping problem, lay off the caffeine at night. Soda and Coffee is a huge factor.  Do some breathing exercise. Watch an old boring show like the American Inventor Simon Cowell produced the series, it put my cat to sleep. He got a perfect song and it was a great performance.  He rocked it!

Alex and Seria. Seria got talent, she can do an Irish dance. She kicked her leg up.  They sang Addicted To Love by Robert Palmer. Alex and Seria are perfect for each other and great performance from the both of them, even though they sang in different cubbies they still sang good when they sang in box and came out of the box.

X Factor Audition Process

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.

Tate Stevens wins X-Factor

Tate StevensAs you may know Carly Rose Sonenclar was the runner up as Tate Stevens won the X-factor last night. Congratulation to Tate Stevens. Carly Rose had a journey of a ride on the X-factor.  Every week she out shine her competition and people loved her. But she couldn’t compete with Tate Stevens a country singer.

Carly  Rose  12 21 2012Carly Rose Soneclar has a musical theater background that’s why she advances very week, because of her voice, her stage presence and she really worked hard – that’s success! Since she is in Los Angeles, California she could start her career as singer and maybe her mentor Britney Spears could help her out to fulfill her dream as a singer. It is not the end of the world for Carly Rose it’s a new civilization for her and a new year for her too.
