Ruth Lorenzo

*standing ovation*
Ruth that was so emotional, so powerful and really showed just why you are here! An amazing voice and you definitely honoured Whitney Houston with that performance. I’m so proud of you so far and I hope that you get your chance to perform in the final. Well done as always!

Roxie`s comment

Ruth


That was beautiful Ruth. Vocally I loved the longer notes. However, I just wanted that much more from it. You sing with passion all the time Ruth and for me the vocals although great didn’t make me feel anything. It was leaning slightly more to the more theatrical side. I want either you or Shayne (that is if Danyl doesn’t ) to win and for that to happen, I want a more passionate, less theatrical performance from you. I understand how difficult it was to find a decent version though and the audience will be in for a treat for your second performance I’m sure chica

I feel a lump in my throat every time I hear that song..didn't happen tonight for some reason. I still think you did a decent job on that song. It was just somewhat lifeless and characterless for me tonight. You still have another chance to impress me later tonight. I hope that works to your advantage

Next up is a boy who is doing a bit of a medley of MJ, with a lot mashed up….It`s Shayne Ward!!!

*Gets up and dances*

*Standing Ovation*


You did it!
That was simply breath taking. I am in awe of how you have raised your game every time you stepped on that stage. You put your own stamp on it...signed and sealed by Mr Ward. It was so suiting as MJ is one of your biggest inspirations.. you even sang one of the verses completely in falsetto.. I mean.. come on.. we're looking at some mad talent here, cause that was mega dope!

Shayne Ward

*standing ovation*
Why do one when you can do them all! I’m joking, but that was really great Shayne! It’s pretty obvious you’re both mine and Roxie’s favourites outside our categories and I think you’re pretty safe for next week. Great work to both you and Kuda tonight, well done!

Roxie`s comment

Shayne

I liked this mashup honey boy. It was really interesting and intricate, loved how it went from the slow style of The Way You Make Me Feel to the more energetic I Want You Back. However, it didn’t feel like you were singing it (btw this is the arrangement I was hinting about for Heshima!). The vocals were nice too, I would have preferred to have heard the deeper Shayne tones in your voice. But, I loved the falsetto.

Heshima Thompson

Heshima, that really didn’t suit you unfortunately. I suspected you would have done a MJ song for this theme so I get why you would have taken a risk but, for me, it didn’t pay off very well as Whitney just isn’t suited to your vocals at all. Sorry mate, wasn’t for me tonight.

Roxie`s comment

Heshima


Heshima, this is really hard for me to say because you’ve had some incredible performances, but this didn’t feel like you at the beginning at all, and the vocals felt slightly strained (especially those ‘I’s in the choruses). It felt a bit cheesy. I love your style and I wish you could have done a song where you could be more Heshima.

Shayne: Shayne this was good, not amazing but good. I am glad that you made it your own as oppose to just a tribute act, but it wasn't a WOW performance

Heshima: You only went and did it again. Truly amazing Heshima. You and your mentor have been amazing throughout the competition, so well done

Its a shame those two did not like that, cause I could feel your intensity and passion and we weren't going for the obvious act for you: Michael Jackson. We took a risk. Yes, I wish we took it a fraction faster but the main reasons I picked that for you are A) the emotion & B) the, not one, but TWO key changes! I have never in my life heard a guy sing that so on point. You aren't the front runner here, but I believe in you and I thank the public for doing that too. Performances like '1+1' a couple of weeks ago, and this, just make you a dedicated hardworker. Im insanely proud of you for still being here..please be in that final

Danyl Johnson

Danyl?! What the heck was that?! It was definitely interesting but in all the bad ways. That arrangement just did not suit your voice at all, it was very monotonous and all on one tone for most parts, and then it went into really strong rock tones which I don’t even think you are capable of. Some may see this is a complete breakthrough, but I thought it was three steps backwards from what you’ve built up over the last few weeks. I’m disappointed to say the least.

Roxie`s comment

Danyl


*standing ovation*

Oh my gosh! Danyl, that was absolutely incredible babe! Those vocals were full of that deep Danyl grit. I loved the build-up, you started by playing around with it and then as you got to the chorus you completely let your vocal loose. Wow! And that chorus! You showed so much incredible passion in it – those I’s you held and then that vibrato. I got goosebumps throughout that. And you kept that interesting throughout. It was epic.

I didn't like that, I hated it! It sounded quite good the first few phrases but when all the other noise kicked in. You're gonna need some honey and lemon on that throat cause it sounded way too rough for you and off key at some point If im being brutally honest. From last week's performances to this.. it just left a bitter taste I my mouth. Your vocals are way smother, and richer and they have a texture I love so I don't know why you went for that. That was just disappoint. sorry

Ruth Lorenzo

*standing ovation*
Spanish + Rock = Ruth Lorenzo! Amazing Ruth! Tonight you’ve shown you can master ballads from the first performance and have shown off your rock and Spanish side from this performance. You’ve got a very versatile voice and I hope this performance does its purpose and gets you to the final! Good luck Ruth, I’ll be by your side throughout! Please everybody VOTE FOR RUTH!

Roxie`s comment

Ruth


*standing ovation*

When I first saw the song choice I was like damn I wanted Ruth to sing something rocky…what the heck was I on about? This is even better than your Femme Fatale performance. It was so catchy and you got so into it. When I hear Ruth singing with passion – no one is on the same level. Ruth that was amazing! And that chorus! Shakira better move out of the way, there’s a new Spanish diva in the world. Vote for Ruth everyone!

Heshima wasn't that great tbh, don't understand the hype about her I'm afraid.
