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’s ‘Always 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’s ‘Empire 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!
We did it last week, and we can do it AGAIN! Vote vote VOTE to take the most talented Miss Misha B through to the penultimate stage of the competition!
Viewers are once again trying to bring her down by complaining that she was only saved by the public because of her “sob story” concerning her mother, who gave her up as a child and recently tried to get in touch with Misha via the media. So now it’s said that her personal life should be kept private – well they weren’t saying that when talk of her “bulling” was flying through the media…didn’t want her personal life to stay private then did ya!
To all the cynical folk, she didn’t get saved because of her “sob story”; she got saved because of her VOICE! So she can cry all she wants on stage and behind the scenes for at least this girl has TALENT to back it up! Come on MISHA fans, we can save the B-est once again by sparing a vote for our girl – let’s aim to keep her in for the final!

(Read below for my earlier plea)
I don’t usually vote for contestants on The X Factor, but this week I intend on making an exception – I can no longer face seeing Misha B in the bottom two for a third week! Now I am not about to criticise any of the other remaining acts, but Misha B is by far the most talented artist left in this competition. Her talent is on a whole other level compared to the other contestants; although I must admit the re-entry of Amelia Lily has ruffled things slightly – the originally-rejected singer was even given some of Misha’s lines in the M&S advert! Talk about eliminating her on the sly!
We all know Tulisa more or less damaged the singer’s chances of winning the show by exposing her as an alleged “bully”, and therefore darkening her name – let’s face it – once word got around about comments made by herself and Louis, Misha had no chance of retaining those public votes.
But we need to REMEMBER what Misha B is CAPABLE of, and that she is an incredibly FULLY-FLEDGED artist with SUPERSTAR potential! Each week she ignites that stage with her stunning voice, electric stage presence, and powerful performances… she always…ALWAYS delivers!
I know a few other passionate people who shall be boycotting the show if this girl gets voted out…so let’s get behind her guys! Even if you don’t usually vote, let us give her our full support this week and keep her in the competition (and in the M&S advert!). Let’s prove that we B-lieve in our MISHA and VOTE!
Support this plea for Misha B!
Leona Lewis’s new single entitled ‘Collide’ taken from her upcoming third album, has recently surfaced online, and I must say it was quite a turn-up for the books – for an artist who is known to usually be quite a ‘still’ performer, this new single is rather…well…up-tempo. The singer seems to have noticed the common trend of electro-dance storming the charts these days and decided to adopt the sound for this single release, although…[Opinion after first listen]…I strongly feel that her voice was far better suited to her original sound. I adore her angelic voice over pop ballads that fully compliment her clear, melodic vocals; it’s the main sound that she adopted since winning The X Factor so this dance vibe is a major contrast and may just take some getting used to…
…[And opinion after second listen]…hmmm I think this addictive number may have just grown on me!
I feel that the song just shows how versatile she can be as an artist, as her voice is clearly equally as powerful as the track itself. It could be said that her gentle personality doesn’t really match this floor-filler style of music, however I am quite hopeful that there’s a strong chance we may finally witness her inner groove – well she couldn’t exactly perform this one in a stand still now – could she?…
I guess there are high hopes for the X Factor contestant Cher Lloyd, who has apparently been signed to Jay-Z’s record label Roc Nation. The rapper who also signed artists such as Lil’ Kim and Willow Smith, admitted that he was impressed by Cher’s X Factor performances. She has constantly been viewed to have brought something fresh and unique to the table, maintained that ‘swagger’ she had shown in her first audition, and was seen to have spiced up the talent show; therefore this incredible news is far from a surprise.
An insider told The Sun newspaper that “Even though Cher didn’t do terrifically well in the X Factor finals, there’s been a hell of a lot of interest in her…All the labels are on the lookout for sassy, young female artists with bags of attitude, and Cher fits that bill perfectly.” Although Will.i.am who has recently recorded a “mega smasher” with the 17-year-old, has been backing the singer since the beginning, he couldn’t possibly compete with the super powers of Jay-Z who has the ability to instantly turn you into a worldwide superstar, boasting a huge money-stacking career.
The insider added, “After weighing up the pros and cons, it was thought that the team at Roc Nation would be best placed to turn her dreams of stardom into a reality.”
She does have that enormous confidence and that star quality, and very much deserves this massive opportunity. She proves that coming fourth in the singing competition isn’t all that bad at all, and I bet she must feel like a winner now! So could 2011 be her year?
This girl surely got people talking with this one boy – I truly believe she has huge potential to go far in this competition…
this is my show people! love it love it! -From the amazingly talented to the ridiculously dumb acts…pure entertainment 🙂
..and to celebrate the new series I thought I’d show some vids from the most successful acts that came out of the biggest talent TV programme ….. enjoy 😀
