Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the third live show of The Mix Factor!

Last Friday, sixteen acts performed live for your votes. At the end of the day, Loukas Giorkas was the unfortunate act to end up in 16th place. But that wasn't all, the other two boys faced off in the sing-off, with Morten Benjamin advancing at the expense of Adil Memon after a very close judges' vote.

Tonight, the top fourteen will be singing songs with titles that consist of exactly three words. Not a hard theme at all, but the show will be interesting nonetheless as TWO more acts will be leaving the competition tonight!

As you may know already, Lyriccs has left the forums for some unknown reason. Instead of finding a replacement judge for him, I have decided to move Morten Benjamin to Soppyfan's category as he is technically a wildcard act. That means we're down to four judges again!

Speaking about judges, please welcome the five judges of The Mix Factor and their acts!
And this will be the intro tune for the third live show:

The others haven't arrived yet, but I'm going to get the show on the road anyway.

I have Soppyfan's comments, but Kev will have to catch up once he gets here.

I missed the first two shows but will hopefully have time to vote later! I was looking back at some Series 2 shows the other day, I really miss doing it but I definitely don't think I would have had time this series

All right then, opening the third live show with a famous song by The White Stripes is last week's sing-off survivor. He's recently got a new mentor too, it's Morten Benjamin singing 'Seven Nation Army'!

Thanks Nail, it's nice to see you're still supporting the show you once did so well on!

Morten

Hmmmm, Morten I am sorta on the fence about this performance. I felt as though you gave a pretty competent performance tonight, but the song choice was pretty bland and boring. It reminded me of vanilla ice cream, it is nice but you would always prefer something with a little bit more flavour and depth to it. If you make it back for the next show Morten, I hope your mentor will choose a more substantial song that will really shock and surprise us in a good way.

Morten Benjamin

Morten, who would've thought that being the last boy standing would join my wildcard team. Well for me, I always try to expect the unexpected. You may by in my category now but I won't change you because you have been good so far but I'm going to make you great. This was a great way to open the show and it was cool and you were rocking, well done boy.

Morten Benjamin

Morten this just didn’t do it for me. I mean your previous mentor knew exactly what to do with you and how to do it even though they had trouble with you one last week overall they have known what to do with you. But in this there was just nothing for me that made me go “wow he’s a contender” in fact it probably lowered my opinion of you. Morten if you are here next week you need to get a better song because this was just average at best.

So we kick off the night with mediocre comments for Morten, will he be paying another visit to the bottom 3 tonight?

Up next, we have an over who's going to sing a song by one of my favorite artists (okay, that was a bit off-topic). Her mentor believes in her, but will Samantha Jade be able to do 'Shake It Out' by Florence + The Machine (cover) justice?

Samantha Jade

Samantha, that was a VERY brave song choice by your mentor and I commend your mentor for that. But for me, I like how you made that song different and not a copy of the original. It may not have been as brilliant as your other performances, but I'm sure you'll be safe this week. Good job, Samantha.

Samantha, I quite liked that performance tonight. I think your mentor has chosen a good song for you to sing tonight. Your voice wasn’t drowned out by the track and was the star of the show. I think that if you keep growing in confidence with each week you are saved you may become a force in this competition.

Sammi after last week the judges said I needed to give you a more standout vocal song and this was definately that. Nobody would expect a brilliant performance like this from a Florence song and you just nailed it. You went wait I need to perform this and by lord you nailed it! Bravo!

Some pretty good comments for Samantha Jade, but will she get the votes she so desperately needs tonight?

The next act is one of Stephen's girls. She'll be taking on a very popular song, it's Danielle Penning singing 'Girl On Fire' by Alicia Keys!

Danielle Penning

Danielle, you've been under the radar since the first show but tonight, I think this was the right time for you to come out of your shell and take on bigger songs. I've been hearing this song recently, but I'm always impressed when another artist sings it. That was a beautiful performance and you hit the high notes with ease to me. Amazing choice, Danielle.

Danielle Penning

Last week I was very harsh on you because it felt really cheesy and bad for me. This was the opposite though. It was a pretty good performance by you and gave you more of an opportunity to shine as an artist. I would still like to see a more jazz side to you but less cheesy than last week but overall this was pretty decent.

Danielle, after the last show when you were criticised for being too cheesy by certain judges I decided this week to go back to a performance where your vocals would shine out. I think this song worked extremely well for you as it allowed those fantastic vocals to shine and it also allowed you to insert some sexiness into the performance and work the stage and the audience. My hope this week is that the other judges will love the performance as much as I did and give you good comments and that the public will continue to fall in love with you and continue to support you.

That must be a relief for Danielle, especially after those terrible comments she got last week from three of the judges.

Back to the over 25s, it's Jack's pride and joy Daniel Vengsgaard singing 'Kings and Queens' by 30 Seconds to Mars

Daniel Vengsgaard

Daniel, I wish I could just say wow, but I wanna say more. The song requires that huge rock voice with some uniqueness so it matches the song. That was possibly your best performance so far in the competition. You may well now be a potential contender if you do another performance like that. And Jack, I've gotta hand it to you, that was a fantastic choice of song for him.

Daniel, I have heard that song hundreds of times and have to be honest and say I never knew it was a Thirty Seconds To Mars song. But anyways onto your performance and I have to be honest and say I wasn’t a big fan tonight. In fact I was a huge fan tonight. You totally rocked the stage tonight and I felt as though I was at a Daniel Vengsgaard concert. Amazing job.

Daniel Vensgaard

Daniel the song starts being soft and with emotion which you did fantastically! Then the chorus kicks in and you belt out the song with your fantastic rock edge vocals it becomes a great show! Daniel you've gone from strength to strength and I honestly think so far this is your best performance so far! Brilliant

Amazing comments for Daniel tonight, but will the public agree with everything the judges said?

As it's impossible to follow that up with just one performance, why don't we try two? Please give it up for:

Nathaniel Willemse - 'Isn't She Lovely' by Stevie Wonder (Kris Mark Cover)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGWtCHs8i8U

Phuong And Rasmus: Are We Different (Priscilla Ahn)
Phuong: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3mFA-hVAxc
Male Cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGRQL9EkdPY
Note: The male cover is purely to show how a man sings it, Rasmus has a high-pitched voice so his vocals would be more similar to the original song, I know this is more downbeat but it has the same indie-pop feel and I think that the sweet vocals are perfect for them.

Nathaniel

Oh Nathaniel, I thought this was a nice vocal performance tonight, although I fear you will be forgotten after the last 3 performances we have just heard. The song choice was pretty obvious to me but it was nice to hear you mix it up a little bit from the original. I fear for your place tonight Nathaniel. Sorry.

Phuong And Rasmus

Guys, I can fully understand why your mentor has chosen this song for you tonight. But for me it wasn’t my favourite performance of yours in the competition so far. Personally I much preferred last weeks performance and I felt a little underwhelmed by the performance just because I had set the bar so high for you guys after last week. But I am sure you will be back and will wow me again.

Nathaniel Willemse
Nathaniel, I really love how you put your style on the song and it is quite soulful. But with this cover, it is able to make you current as well which is what we are working with each and every week. You sang it with meaning and with a great tone control, beautiful and soulful job, man. Please continue to vote for Nathaniel, viewers.

Phuong And Rasmus
Well guys, I'm on two sides with this performance and the song choice. I really like the new direction your mentor is trying to take. Phuong, that was a really great choice for you and you sung it with a great range. But Rasmus, I felt like that this song didn't quite fit for you, but I know that there is something good about you and Phuong when you sing together. I hope you'll get the votes tonight.
