X Factor UK 2012 Round Up: Semi Final Performances….


TBN’s X Factor ‘know-it-all’ Michelle Nutting returns with her round up of last nights X Factor semi final performances…

Oh my goodness! How did that happen? We have found ourselves at the Semi-Final.. now the judges have no power. That means no deadlock , just quite simply, the act with the fewest votes goes home.

Each act will sing two songs tonight and opening the show is…..

Chris Maloney – ‘You Raise Me Up’

There is no denying that he can sing but for me I’m sorry Chris, you do not have the X Factor. Good safe song choice though.

Jahmene Douglas – ‘I Look To You’

Over the last few weeks we have seen this young man grow. This was absolutely amazing showing so much talent and emotion. Tears all round then??

Union J – ‘Beneath Your Beautiful’

A very current song choice which showcased perfectly their fantastic voices and harmonies. For me this was their best performance of the series.

James Arthur – ‘One Love’

A beautiful song…didn’t blow me away but as always, James you are fab.

And so to the second song of the night…

Jahmene Douglas – ‘At Last’

Oh wow!! This was the song that originally showed us what amazing talent this young boy had. Sang like a true pro, you Jahmene have been my winner all along and I would pay to see you sing. Yes you were Jah-mazing!

Christopher Maloney – ‘I Just Haven’t Met You Yet’

Oh dear! Sorry Chris but you are no Michael Buble! This unfortunately showed that he is really only suited to a ballad type song. Not a Semi-Final performance….and not for me. Sorry Liverpool.

Union J – ‘I’m Already There’

I admit it, I’m a BIG Westlife fan so I love this song. I also remember it being sang on X Factor by JLS so obviously Louis also likes it!! But regardless of that, boys you were fabulous! Another great performance which had you looking like you were born to be doing this. Surely after tonight you MUST be in the final.

James Arthur – ‘Power of Love’

Blooming brilliant! Every song you sing is a joy to listen to. You have such raw talent and there is so much emotion in every word you sing. James you are unbelievable, I heart you and the final is certainly beckoning. And whatever you are singing the ladies are wanting to get it on with you!!

So a great end to the Semi- Final.. It’s all down to the public vote now though and only three acts can go on to next weeks Final. I know who I would have there next Saturday, I can only pick up the phone and hope the rest of Britain do the same!!!

See you for a nail-biting Sunday results show.
