[Video] X Factor Final Press Conference and Duets Revealed!…

The X Factor final Press Conference which took place yesterday, revealed all the exciting plans for this weekend’s X Factor final at Wembley Arena!

The one aspect of the final I tend to look forward to the most each year is the duets – but this year it is set to be an all new format. Instead of the finalists performing a duet with various artists, this time they will be performing with their own mentors! So no pressure Gary, Kelly and Tulisa! Ironically I think it’s the judges that are going to be judged – a taste of their own damn medicine – and it would surely be shameful if they get upstaged by the amateurs! (hehehe)

So which songs will the duets be performing…

Well Gary has confirmed that he and Marcus will be singing Billy Joel’sAlways A Woman’ which is said to be dedicated to the finalist’s mum. (They’re gonna shut it DOWN!)

Tulisa and her “little muffins” will be performing a mash-up of Alicia Key’sEmpire State Of Mind’ and ‘If I Ain’t Got You’. (Yep they’re sure to bring the house DOWN with that one).

And finally, Amelia Lily and Kelly Rowland will be performing Ike and Tina Turner’s classic ‘River Deep, Mountain High’ – and in the words of Kelly Rowland, they’re gonna “put it DOWN!”.

So can comeback kid Amelia Lily take the winner’s crown? Can cutie Marcus steal even more of the viewers’ hearts and become the X Factor champion? Can Little Mix win the competition and make X Factor history!?

And to top off the weekend’s events, Coldplay, Michael Buble, Leona Lewis, One Direction and JLS will be gracing the stages on Sunday night! I for one cannot WAIT for the phenomenon that is the X Factor final to commence!


Kelly Rowland Motivates Lil Weezy In Her Sensuous New Single…

Kelly Rowland partners up with Lil Wayne on her Jim Jonsin -produced single ‘Motivation’, which was penned by Rico Love and is taken from her third solo album. Weezy doesn’t need much motivation to be ‘down and dirty’, I’m sure it comes naturally to the sex-driven rapper but there’s no harm in a few words of encouragement as the former DC member sings over a synth-lead beat, “Go Longer, You Can Last More Rounds/ Much Harder, You’re Almost There Now/ So Go Lover, Make Mama Proud” – seductive lyrics slickly delivered by Ms. Kelly.

The song won’t be as impacting as a single release, but I do like how it demonstrates the singer’s excellent vocal range and power which wasn’t always so evident in her ‘Destiny’s Child’ days – she has really proved herself as a successful solo artist and if she continues to release hits like ‘When Love Takes Over’ and ‘Commander’, she’ll continue to please the mainstream audience which is always important, in terms of dominating the charts. Though ‘Motivation’ is still an addictive track in my opinion! Take a listen below… 🙂
