    It wasn't a great night tonight, but I think we've got a great bunch of singers left.

    JLS - I still don't get the whole hype about them, they wasn't good tonight but I still think they could make the final.

    Eoughen - definately most improved and I quite like him now, never used to. He has a good chance of going far now I think. The last few weeks he has sang brilliant.

    Diana - I still love her but I don't think she's been the same since she took a week off. I really hope she can get back on track because I think a lot of people have gone off her since then.

    Alexandra - I've gone from being quite neutral with her, to liking her a bit and now not really liking her much. She's turned a bit scatty, and it's just the same old with her now. There's nothing unique about her, whereas there is something unique about the other contestants. I think she will make the final but I hope she doesn't win. She is a good singer though.

    Ruth - she is a good singer, and has found her 'rock chick' niche, but I'm still not really feelin' her.

    Well, Rachel has gone. I don't know if she could have gone, but even though I liked her I'm not sure she was getting much better and not many people liked her. JLS didn't sing great in the main show or in the sing-off, so they definately should have been in the bottom two. I knew they wouldn't go though.

    I think Ruth will be next, with maybe Diana or JLS in the sing-off.

    I didn't think much of Take That - I don't know why they got their own night to be honest. I was quite impressed with Same Difference and Rydian was quite good aswell.

    so you'll be buying the album then? ;)

    Saintly. I thought they were good at doing what they were doing last night. High School Musical suited them and they did it well. The music/style is crap but they did it well

    Will I be buying Rhydian's album? I'll put it with the Michael Ball albums which are.....still at Andy's records :lol: :lol:

    Of course I won't be buying his album :rolleyes: but I may find myself halting my walk past the TV for 5 minutes if he is on before resuming.

    I disagree about Diana. She is different to all the others BUT she is now making every song sound the same. I think she could do with some Blondie style again because for me that was her peak and the only one that was not like her other performances.

    You can have Ruth mate. I think she is sexy as and I fancied her rotten at the start but her teeth seem to be getting bigger and more horse like each week. What a performance last night though, and without the aid of a 'make my lady lumps look even bigger' dress ;) ;) She still small in comparison to my wife and therefore has to use her voice to impress me which she did. lol One thing I wish is that they would stop using the Mariah Carey wind blowing her hair about every time.

    Oh and Alexandra is much much prettier and sexier. Bet she is RAF in real life though. lol

    I aggree with alot of the comments.

    JLS and Diana in the final but as said there both not on form at the moment.

    ruth is ok but there is something about here im not liking. the large jaw maybe???

    Glad rachel has gone

    eoughen has got better but im not crazy about him

    Alexandra is a great singer and ready to record but there is nothing special about her


    Same difference are annoying but they are great at what they do.

    Behold....Patience, that comment will come to be sure.

    I just read that Same Difference were miming (wasn't watching as I was doing the washing up waiting for Rhydian. lol)

    I take back all that I said, no wonder they sounded good :rolleyes:

    ^ Y'know I thought they were miming! You couldn't really tell but it sounded recorded, so I said to my mum ''are they miming?'' and she replied ''no!'' so I left it.

    Hmm...

    I've got to put some thoughts on this can't resist it, using Thomas's thread here....

    JLS - Good bunch of lads but IMO Walsh is giving them the wrong songs they need something more current and upbeat, also something which showcases their tight harmonies.

    Eoughen - Don't like the lad, look at his eyes there is nothing behind them, no emotion, he won't make the final I am sure.

    Diana - Awesome, really weird singer she makes very odd noises, squeeks, gurgles, it sounds as if she is malfunctioning somehow but it works. She I think could go on to have a half decent career given the right songs (i.e sufficient budget to secure the songs from the top songwriters).

    Alexandra - She is a talented vocalist but sadly she won't win, I think they will see her as too similar to Leona Lewis.

    Ruth - bloody awful, she's just belts the song out, it's like everything in the song is a vehicle to allow her to belt out some big notes at the end.

    Rachel - thank god she's gone, awful.

    I didn't think much of Take That - I don't know why they got their own night to be honest. I was quite impressed with Same Difference and Rydian was quite good aswell. - Yeah Rydian nailed it but he's as mad as a bicycle. Same Difference were brilliant :lol: but they were certainly miming, there was a lot of autotune going on I think.

    Yeah! What an amazing show!

    I think Eoughen didn't do that well tonight, his first performance wasn't up to par and that High School Musical stuff was just to get extra votes. I know you well Simon.

    JLS were't too good first performance but were really good second, the best they've been throughout the competition I think. That performance made me like them.

    Diana is back! She hasn't been herself for the last few weeks but this week I think she was great, although this is one of the few times I've been worried that she might have been in trouble.

    Alexandra was good. Even though her singing was crap in the first performance, it was a good performance nonetheless and her second vocals were great. I think she's gonna win, but I hope she doesn't!

    I said a few weeks ago that I think Rachel and Ruth will be in trouble next. Rachel went last week and Ruth this week. Her performances weren't great - she seemed to shout the second one in particular.

    I don't know who will go next week, I think it depends on the performance but I think it'll be Eoughen. I reckon final two are gonna be Alexandra and Diana.

    Mylie Cyrus was great, I really liked her. But Brtitney... YEAH! I used to love Britney back in the day and her performance tonight made me love her again. Even though she was miming, she was amazing. So buff too.

    DIANA TO WIN!

    That is all.

    Eoughen is still in the competition because he's got a lot of people voting for him and he's been the most improved contestant.

    Diana is still in the competition because she's been consistant and she's likeable.

    Ruth was from Spain so she didn't have any part of the country voting for her, like Eoughen has Ireland voting for him. Her performances this evening were a let down. The first one wasn't great, and she shouted the whole way through the second one.
     
  17. Britney's crap lol. She started going bad about 8 years ago and has got steadily worse IMO :rolleyes:

    This is the first time I totally disagree with you Thomas ;)

    I thought from the performances that Eoghan was the only one that would be safe because he is improving week on week and did what he was given quite well.

    Compared to the others:
    Alexandra - I was pretty bored with the first performance and the second one just reiterates what I have been saying for a while. Yet another Diva. Best voice in the cop by a mile but if you watch her whole 'thing' is an collage of all that has gone before. The aggressive finger pointing straight out of Whitney's repertoir. The clothes and warbling is a mix of Christina and Mariah. I was yawning by the end of the second performance too. Great voice but there is a reason that Mariah and Whitney and Celine and Braxton disappeared.......The public got bored with the same old thing. Mariah only came back to popularity by selling out to the (supposedly) 'RnB' sound <--------Please someone explain how this music is labelled RnB.

    Diana - I though she was pretty weak last night and I am starting to agree with others on the net that she is starting to sound samey and the novelty is starting to wear thin.

    Ruth - Went from best performance of the series last week to a 'shoutathon' this week.

    JLS - Very weak on the first but came back quite well in the second.

    All in all was a pretty poor week with not so great performances especially the first half which was due to the theme. When I heard they were performing ' Britney's greatest hits' I said to my wife 'Are they all going to do the same song then?' (Hit me baby one more time.)

    Shows how commercial this show is becoming. Was already commercial of course before but is getting to silly levels when you have Britney themed nights. 'guests' should have to sing live otherwise when they say 'it takes a lot to get up on stage and do this' at the end of their performance it is contradictory but then did anyone thing she would sing live?

    I said to my wife after the performances Eoghan would be safe and probably JLS but I though Diana/Ruth would be the likeliest to go.

    Next week wither Diana or Alexandra will go.

    There are loads of Toxic covers, I've got a black metal and a hardcore cover of said song.
    I often find covers better than the original, for example, the postal services cover of phill collins. Or squarepushers rendition of love will tear us apart...
