Is that a rock song when they sang on Wednesday night performance? Apparently, the contestants sang their rock songs and some of the songs either were a soft-rock, pop-rock, and reggae-rock. It was good and great performance from all the contestants. If you did your share and voted for favorite your favorite would have stayed.
I thought. Leroy Bell would have gone home tonight, but he was safe. His song choice wasn’t right his next perform would have been a better.
Contestants who were safe were:
The bottom two were Stacy Francis and Astro. Francis knew she was the bottom two and sharing the stage with Astro. Francis sang “Amazing Grace” and it was amazing, one of her good performance last night.
However, Astro thought he owns it. He thought he was the best until he was at the bottom two. From the beginning of the show when it premiered his attitude was slowly coming out. His rap songs were originally, and he could sing anything with rap. I am not a big fan of rap music, but they are other rap artists who are great and been in the business longer than him.
Astro came out and almost refused to play along with the whole Survival Song script. “I really don’t think I should perform. I think it’s unnecessary,” he said. But then Reid talked him into it, saying he’d come too far to give up. And so Astro rapped his way patchily — heartbreakingly, I thought — through “Never Can Say Goodbye.” His rapping was not good.
They could have let him go, and Astro can take the lesson the hard way. Make him think what happened.
Reid chewed Astro out — “You acted a little bit like a quitter and it upset me,” he said, but then threw his chips his mentee’s way anyway, opting to send Francis home. Later, he and Astro’s mother would have a serious career making decision and his attitude.
Stacy Francis was better, even though her song choice wasn’t the right match. If people remember from American Idol, the pioneer of talent show and the previous winners from the show, the song choice is the key to succeed.
Nicole Scherzinger, who was Fancis’s mentor, predictably chose to save her and send Astro home. If Paula did the same thing send Astro home. Simon would have agreed and send Astro home too. Stacy Francis would have another week to redeem herself that she is in it to win it.
Cowell zeroed in on Astro alone, telling him, “I don’t like your attitude right now.” He made him uncross his arms and look him in the eye, and he tried to get him to say that he’d behave better if he landed in the same spot again in the future. Cowell went so far as to mention Astro’s beloved mom.
That’s when a tear trickled down Astro’s cheek, reminding us that this swaggery performer full of blustery bravado was just a little boy — a sad, disappointed kid from Brooklyn, who’d put his all into the competition despite being sadly separated from the very mom for whom he’d written the tribute that put him on the “X Factor” map. He believed this show would take him (and his family) somewhere, and it had let him (and them) down. The voters didn’t like him, and he was hurt.
“I don’t want to perform for people who don’t want me here,” he said, understandably injured.
Though Astro is still a child, Cowell reminded him that he was expected to behave like a grownup. “You know what the rules are,” he said.
In the end, though, Cowell saved Astro and sent Francis home. He did not want to do it but he did.
Who did have the lowest vote, probably Astro. Francis would have been saved.
If Astro performs well next week, please don’t vote for him. His attitude get’s in the way and he’s too young and immature.
