I'll be watching this game throughout and yes, there is a 60% chance of one of the boys going.

Shayne

Last week I was very critical of your performance. This week I still didn't like it.... I loved it. The song drew me in more and I really thought the vocals were on par. Well done Shayne.

Jack`s comment

Shayne Ward

*standing ovation*
Shayne, you continue to impress! Yet another superb vocal performance and I think itís got to the point of the competition where Iím going to just be upstanding for you all day long! Kudaís doing a fabulous job mentoring you, he knows you inside and out and I really hope you continue to do great throughout the rest of the competition. Letís just hope your second song is just as great. Good job!

I thought that was an amazing and stylish delivery of that song. We have done uptempos, we've done ballads and you've proved your strength in those areas so tonight, you went for something in between. Those "oohh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ohhhhh" were top notch and you have remained the most consistent in the competition I think. And I know everybody is going to be blown away by your 2nd performance. Well done Shayne!


you don't have comments from Roxie, Pingu?

*Standing Ovation

Danyl, when I listen to you, I listen for texture, I listen for power and I listen for range. You gave us all of that in the right doses tonight. There was nothing to dislike about that performance. You have improved drastically in the last couple of shows and I couldn't be more proud of you. Great performance

Danyl

Yes Yes Yes. This song is a classic as was this performance. Big well done Danyl, you could go far

Jack`s comment

Danyl Johnson

*standing ovation*
Danyl, my God that was great! I had goosebumps from the first note! By far your best performance ever and Iím really glad you shone bright tonight. Roxie, this was an ingenious choice and itís definitely a highlight for me. Itís going to be so hard tonight, so best of luck to you! Good job!

Aleks

I'm not sure I like this song, but that is irrelevant, because your performance was good and quite cool so yeah well done.

Jack`s comment

Aleks Josh

Aleks, it was a good performance but from Shayne and Danylís performances you can see just how high the bar has been raised tonight. I think youíve got a great voice but itís shying away a little as the competition gets tougher. I hope you really bring it with your next song to be in with a chance of making the Semis next week.

I thought tonight we'd go for something less acoustic but still staying true to your style and Aleks, I think you are probably the most unique act left in this competition and I hope you will be in that final and as that song says, we can always count on your fans. You aren't the same artists as Shayne and Danyl and one thing I promised myself is that I wasn't going to change who you are. I stretched your range a bit with that song just to show what you are capable of doing. The lyrics were relatable for everyone which made us automatically connect with you.. Bring on that second song!

I thought you perfectly hit those notes and I liked Pink's rocky tone to that. To be honest, I wanted the lighter parts of that song to be sang softer and obviously the chorus to be more rockier. I felt like you just sang the whole song at the same level which made it a bit too punchy for me.. you know what I mean? I think being in the bottom 2 a couple of shows ago has really knocked your confidence, judging on the past 2 performance. I feel like you've lost the old Ruth I loved..the Spanish sweetheart..I want her back!

Ruth

Yes my Sexy Ruth is back. Boom Baby it was loud, powerful and sang beautifully.

Jack`s comment

Ruth Lorenzo

*standing ovation*
Ruth you blew the ROOF on this place! You really rocked that and I hope everybody else thought so. As soon as I saw America, I thought Janis Joplin for you. She is certainly one of the most prolific female rock signers of all time and you did her so much justice tonight. I just hope I get to keep you for another week. So please, VOTE RUTH! (free cookies are standing by )

Ruth

When I saw Ne Yo I was a bit like oh god, he's messed up but then I actually listened to the song and it was A-Ma-zing . Its actually quite a good song too.

Jack`s comment

Heshima Thompson

Heshima, it was good but like Aleks it just wasnít quite good enough to compete with the other performances tonight. I didnít really feel anything special for the performance and I just donít know if itís quite good enough to make it through based on this performance alone. I hope your second performance is better to get you through

From that performance of "Thinking About You (Frank Ocean)" to this, your performances have got better and better! Look at how your vocals have smoothened out to get that rich and sultry R&B flavor. I take my hat off to those moves boy, you are a performer and you can definitely sing as well as entertain. Amazing performance!

Yes Shayne, Yes!

Absolutely fantastic!
I look at your journey through this competition and im in awe of how incredible you have been. That performance was just the icing on the cake, to prove your passion for music, your phenomenal talent and your charismatic personality. That song soooo suited you and I see a lot of similarities between your voice and Matt Cardle's. You make me burst with pride! I just loooooove you
