The X Factor final preview
- Dec 09, 2011
Have you enjoyed the ride? From 250,000 auditionees to the final three, we’ve now lived through nearly four months of tears, nail-biting tension, diva strops – from both the judges and contestants. Ladies and gentlemen it's the X Factor Final.
So who are you supporting? Little Mix, Marcus Collins or Amelia Lily.
As firm followers will know, I have been reviewing the show for Music News since August 20th. I am now going to finish with my thoughts on the Final Three.
Amelia Lily. What a girl. She has had a very memorable and unique X Factor journey. From the shock of going out in the first week, only to be brought back as a replacement for Frankie Cocozza who was “kicked off” of the show.
Amelia has a power house of a voice and she looks the perfect pop star BUT many people have said to me that it would be unfair if she was to win the show, especially after missing four weeks. What do you think?
Everyone’s favourite hairdresser, the likeable Marcus Collins has grown more confident each week, his dance moves becoming more vibrant and energetic as the show has progressed. His worst week unfortunately was last Saturday, when he gave a weak second semi final song. He does get my sympathy however, as it turns out he was suffering from a bad throat infection. We understand why he was off his best. He does have an infectious personality. This will help long after the show has finished and I hope he builds after the success of the X Factor.
Finally, the review of the best girl band in the history of the X Factor…..
From red hot favourites to go in week one, to red hot favourites to win. Only on the X Factor. I enjoy the performances from these girls. They can all sing, they all look great and I can see them being a huge success. They have also handled all the different themes with ease and been the most consistent.
So the next question is who will win...?
Our top 3 is: 1st - Little Mix, 2nd - Marcus Collins, 3rd - Amelia Lily.
Tulisa has been the best judge of the series and I hope she is back next year.
