I thought it was a good comeback from what happened last week. I don't understand why that accent was put on as it didn't sound like you. It sounded a bit like Cher actually. With that accent, it just didn't feel believable.. its like you didn't connect with the song. That's a big song, and I would have wanted more strength and attack on those high notes, i'm sure they were much in you range. I've definitely seen better from you so I hope to see more of what I saw in the beginning, in the future.

Ruth

Hi my chica. It was nice. I love that song and it was a great performance of it – I felt vocally. But emotionally it didn’t touch me like your previous performances did; it felt a bit contrived. I would have preferred it if you did a slower acoustic version of an uptempo rock song – that would have been incredible. Nevertheless it was great vocally. And I do love you my Spanish chica! Vote for Ruth!

Wow so much better than last week. But I say we don't mention it again, because you have come back and totally reiterated why we saved you, well done Ruth

Aleks

After your incredible performance last week, this was a bit of a let-down. I love the vocal but the performance did not engage me and I did feel a bit underwhelmed at the end of it. The original connected with me a bit more. It was still nice Aleks so don’t be disheartened – I just wanted more after last week’s stunning performance! I would have liked it if you showed off a bit more dynamic and range.

When I first saw you were doing 1D i was like nooooooooo, but I actually really liked it and I dare say the vocals (which are key in this song) were far stronger and better than those of Liam, Zayn, Niall, Harry and Louis. I'm glad you changed the version because in the first one there were breathing issues so it's nice to you rectified this

I was tempted to give you one of those massive ballads to impress but I've noticed that with you, it's about that effortless vocal and emotive tone that makes you a star. What impresses people the most is not what you put in your performance, but what you leave out! You sing with the most emotion out of all the acts here and you've been a bit of an underdog up to this point but I have a feeling that might be starting to change. Keep going my boy.

I thought the song choice was quite good, but it's the performance as a whole, I wasn't a big fan of. I talked about your performances lacking energy last week. Come on! You're 19! The song doesn't have to be up tempo. I just want more power, and more expression.. you know what I mean? And you gotta bring back the rapping if you get through tonight

Frances

Babe, your last performance was sensational and made me think you’re a serious contender (excellent song choice by your mentor)! This one was gorgeous but it didn’t engage me like your previous performance did. It was a bit bland and it stayed at that same level throughout. Nevertheless it was sweet Frances and if the public prefer a sweeter, cuter Frances then it’ll be enough to get you through. I understand the theme was difficult to do a proper R&B styled song but hopefully next week’s theme allows for that.

I thought this song was beautiful. It suited your vocals and I thought although maybe a little safe, it was one of your better performances and you did me proud. You go girl!!! Vote Frances (I have). And umm yes I understand your comments so thanks and we will work on them

Heshima

Kuda really knows what he’s doing! Wow! That was the best performance of the night so far. Faultless! Those runs about half way through gave me chills. You ran up and down on that song like it was running on a treadmill. That was seriously amazing. You are by far the most underrated contestant in this competition; people need to give you more love.

Sorry folks, I'm back now

Ruth Lorenzo
Your comeback song my chica! Well done tonight, and a great recovery from last week. Brava Please vote for Ruth as she really does deserve her place here!

Aleks Josh
I was sceptical about a 1D cover as they almost never turn out right but this was really good. Good tone, good performance. Well done! You're improving so much week in week out!

Frances Wood
Hi Frances. That was good, but it just feels a little bit tired and the song is quite overused so I think that might have damaged your performance a little tonight. However, it was still a good performance from you, despite not being one of your best.

Heshima Thompson
Heshima, I don't really know how I feel about this performance to be honest. It was good, and a great song choice from Kuda, but I'm just not too sure how much it suited you. Well done on the performance side however!

*Standing Ovation*

Sing it boy! Pure Talent. I don't think that song is well known in the UK but I thought why not sing it if it suits you like lock and key! Who knew how wonderful those head notes and falsetto would sound from you? You've lasted longer than many expected because of your work ethic and I know you still got more to give. And man, can I just take this time to thank you for flying the Team Kuda flag week by week! You've made me proud and you've grown on the hearts of a lot of people during your time here. I hope this wont be the end cause we wont let it!

Danyl

*standing ovation*

Oh my god babe! That was stunning. I was like when did Danyl go from serious guy to heart throb? That was an incredible rendition of one of my favourite songs! You kept that vocally interesting throughout and then when we got to the chorus – it was explosive. That upper register was crazy. You put so much emotion and passion into that and you made it look so effortless! You can sing anything Danyl and tonight just proved you’re in it to win it. Please don’t forget everyone, if you liked Danyl’s rendition of this classic then please rate him as highly as possible in your rankings. We’ve still got a few more tricks up our sleeves that we haven’t shown yet!

That was excellence right on that stage. I loved it. You're getting so much better every week and I'm really happy for you. I think diction needs to be worked on a bit more, especially during the verses. But I thought you did a good job man. Great performance
