Better late than never, here’s our Popfoolish take on the happenings on UK X Factor.
Week Two: 7th and 8th September 2013
BEST: We’re not going to lie, no one really blew our socks off this week. So this week is really a case of picking from the best of a bad bunch. Our favourite contestant from this week was Tom Mann, who sung ‘How Ya Doing’, although we preferred his first audition, where he sung a rendition of ‘Let Her Go’. We also enjoyed Melanie McCabe’s ‘Titanium’, a very brave song choice as it leaves absolutely no room to hide.
WORST: The ‘Euphoria’ girls made an unwelcome return after last week and, predictably, they were completely awful. After a style revamp that brought to mind a mini Saturdays, the girls showed less vocal abilities than Victoria Beckham and were rather cruelly (but fairly) laughed off the stage. Relley‘s performance was also absolutely horrific. She completely murdered a wicked song, ‘Blind Faith’ by Chase & Status. A shame she couldn’t sing it, as it made a different song choice from Whitney Houston or One Direction. And of course Barclay Beales, also known as the young yodeller, was just terrible. He may be a capable yodeller but this is X Factor not Yodel Factor.
