Just watched her again and I seriously can't see anything special, I wouldn't have turned for her. I don't get all this craze, I feel like I'm missing something
I remember the first time I heard Eva Cassidy - utterly gobsmacked and got goosepimples. The same when I heard Julianne Regan singing 'Martha's Harbour'. There have been so many 'similar' singers since then now - it just doesn't have the same effect on me now, they lack the original impact IMO.

Abi on the other hand tonight gave me goosebumps - so different.

I also had the goose pimples and hairs on end effect, this was the stand out performance of the series for me, her tone had me melting. I was totally gutted for Bronwen, and as someone has already pointed out - when singers like Bronwen don't get chosen it makes the show look ridiculous.

Such an amazing, emotional performance. Shame they still haven't ironed out the flaws with the show. If she had been on earlier she'd have gone through.

I liked Abi; at the end of the 'indiany' bit she either had a remarkable run into the lyrics again or there was some weird editing going on, sounded like two voices at once in the transition.

On iplayer it's at 36:13/14, though they edited the coaches blathering in over the top of it so I can't hear clearly.

I wouldn't have turned for her... She was boring and her voice did nothing for me.

Simon might sign her up, just to score points over The Voice.

Tom was genuinely annoyed and rightly so.

But with good management and the right label, she'll go further than most of those who reach the final.

I loved Abi, glad Danny turned, but i think Jessie should of turned for Bronwyn and not the rocker boy.

Hmm yeah just listened to Bronwen again, there's too much reverb and plinky-plonky muzak, you can barely hear her, I can see(hear) why people might be impressed though.

I'm really surprised she didn't.

I loved her. Think she should have got through. Two big disappointments for me, this one and Rob.

Singing Fields of Gold. I had goosebumps the entire way through, I was awful shocked nobody turned around. She was brilliant. What a shame. Loved her.
So did I

It is unfair really to the ones that audition near the end.She was far better than most that have got through already.
Totally agree with this.

I suspect that Mr AM was told to just wait till the last act.

Bit of a fix really

Thst girl had the same affect as gamu and jade thst didnt get through to lives on the x factor. She was potentially a world superstar. Singing in welsh woukd probably have sold all around the world

It seems to me that Jessie and Danny aren't really up to this job. Danny seems to need reassurance all the time.and comes across as not knowing his own mind and Jessie as being intimidated by talent. I wasn't surprised at all that she didn't turn round for this well above par singer as I think she simply wouldn't know what to do with her.

I'm sure Bronwen will have people interested in her on the back of this and will surely get signed but for the credibility of the show they really need new coaches.

I thought she did have a really nice voice, but it was a bit dull for me. I much preferred Abi. Bronwen was a bit too Eva Cassidy #200 for me.
I literally can't listen to Eva Cassidy's version. I have to turn it off. Not because it moves me in any way but just because I think it is completely devoid of any real emotion & it annoys me like hell that it gets so much attention.
But Bronwen's version is something else entirely. Love it.

As for those saying it is boring. Well try looking outside all the sad, safe & repetitive dramatic performances these programmes have made the norm. Abi gave a terrific understated delivery & the first thing Jessie tells her is to lose that!
The show is a joke now.

always loved that song and thought she did a great version of it

just cant believe she missed out as there are a number of weaker acts in all of the teams

maybe just really bad luck she was towards the end of the auditions

That's the problem with the format of the show. It just doesn't work. Bronwen was brilliant.

Can't really add anything to what's already been said. Thought she was amazing, she should have been picked. I particularly disliked Will.i.ams reason for not turning, saying that he had someone like her already. Surely the acts should just be based on their own merits?

Why do they have a limited amount of space on their team. Its a shame that they can't pick who they like with no limit and then be able to look back when the auditions have finished as to who to cut.
I couldn't believe Jessie didn't turn or Will.I.Am, the two spaces that filled their teams are nowhere near as good as this girl.

TV finally found a world class vocalist and they let her slip through their fingers. No wonder the show is losing viewers and getting ripped apart in the press each week total farce!

As annoyed about this as I was last year about Harriet Whitehead.

Its hard to comment but overall with this format, the tail end of Blind Auditions leaves a bitter-sweet taste because some of the very best lose out.

Exactly. If someone is a great singer you're gonna want them on your team no matter what. That's the whole point of the show. Since when has it become that every team needs variety.

I also didn't like his reason for not turning around to the person singing Pink Floyd that would be a hypocrite if he turned around for him and that he was Team Danny. So anybody singing with a guitar is Team Danny. I dunno I'm starting to find Will annoying he seems to pick the young, current trendy people for his team.

Plus even if he did have 2 similar singers I'm sure he could easily put them together for a battle round and decide then who was the better singer. In fact I thought that is what the battle round was for.
