X Factor With Video Links: Live Show 9 On 4th December 2010.

Hey X Factor Fans,

.

So here we are at the semi-finals.

.

What will happen tonight then, who will fall at the last hurdle.

Who will go forward to the finals.

.

We shall see.

And so it begins….singing club classics.

,

Tonight I have had to revert to just providing you all with the relevant links to the semi-final performances on U Tube because even more of the links are being rapidly disabled now.

Sorry. Hope it does not spoil your X Factor enjoyment!

.

First up

1. Rebecca Ferguson.

Louie said Rebecca has got everything.

Danni thought she was brilliant.

Simon was nervous about the song choice but found her to be cool, controlled and brilliant.

Cheryl loved her act.

.

2. Mary Byrne.

.

.

Danni thought it was Mary at her best.

Cheryl said it was good to see her out of her comfort zone.

Simon found it to be fun but would have liked something more contemporary.

Louie said she was like diva on-stage.

I cannot see her winning, even the original Shirley Bassey is old hat now.

.

Matt Cardle.

Last week Matt missed rehearsals and went home to be cared for by his parents.

He was unable to really prepare for tonight at all and is still not well.

.

.

Louie said he is a true cool professional.

Cheryl loved that he could still deliver a great performance.

Simon said it was a ‘brilliant song anyway’ and he is very sincere and cool.

Danni thanked him for not letting her down, and for being brilliant.

.

4. Cher Lloyd.

.

.

Louie loved the song choice and her style.

Danni found her to be always watchable and said that there is something about her, but doubted the song choice.

Simon admires her fearlessness.

Cheryl said her attitude is only her stage presence and she is a different person in real life.

Ho hum!

.

5.One direction.

Simon has had flu this week so Cheryl helped them instead.

The group missed him.

.

.

Louie thinks they are getting better and better.

Danni thought they had stepped it up.

Cheryl loved them. She thought it was a dangerous song to try and remake for themselves and it did not quite work for her.

Simon said Cheryl was being tactical. They are wonderful and very current.

I think it was a welcome change of style instead of each one singing separately in turn- better!

.

Second Half…songs of their own choice.

So far my choice would be for Mary and Cher to go tonight!

.

1. Matt Cardle.

He hopes to prove to his parents that it was worthwhile to support him in his ambition to sing, for so long.

.

.

Louie says he is going through to the final.

Cheryl could see that he feels very ill- but thinks he has the support to get into the finals.

Simon said it was his worst choice of song tonight because he is more contemporary than that.

Danni said he is being tactical, even with the tonsillitis Matt still did it.

Matt himself agreed that he had been unable to do his best.

.

2. Mary Byrne.

.

.

Danni thought it was beautiful.

Cheryl says her life is now changed anyway.

Simon said she should be proud because she will sell records. There will be no return to Tesco.

Louie thinks she is a role model.

I did not enjoy the performance at all.

.

3. Cher.

.

.

Louie loved it.

Danni was not so keen and would have preferred a ballad.

Simon said it worked for him, and he is a huge fan.

Cheryl said she hoped to God that people will see her potential.

.

4.  Rebecca Ferguson.

.

.

Louie said she is his favourite contestant ever.

Danni thought it was pure class.

Simon said it was absolutely amazing from beginning to end. A class act.

Cheryl considers her to be sincere, beautiful and classy.

She looked a bit like Beyonce, singing this tonight!

.

5. One Direction.

Zain’s grandfather passed away this week, so Zain was absent as well as Simon.

.

.

Louie thinks they are something special.

Danni considered it to be a classy performance.

Cheryl said everyone is fond of them. They have matured and deserve to go on.

Simon praised their work ethic and he is proud of them as people and as artists.

My, but they have improved with the melodies.

Much better!

.

Well, I still think that Mary and Cher will go….what about you!

We will find out soon.

See you tomorrow, so be there or be square.
