Hello and welcome to the final of X-factor vs The voice. Tonight is what all the acts have been working up for and tonight one act will be crowned the champion of X-factor vs The voice and the winner of series 1. Last week we saw Heshima Thompson leave in 4th place, just missing out on the final. So who wants to welcome back our final 3?

Kuda and Shayne Ward

Roxie and Danyl Johnson

Jack and Ruth Lorenzo

And George as our impartial judge and JJ as our retired judge who is coming back for tonight!!

So, judges are you here?

Pingu could we just start, I don't want to miss too much of this and I'm probably going to be called away in a moment

I think that is a good song, in the way the lyrics are relatable to anyone. However, I didn't believe you singing it because the voice didn't sound like you. That Spanish rock tone is what makes me like your performance so this didn't suit you in my opinion. Good luck though!

Ruth Lorenzo
*standing ovation*
A more pop-like song for you tonight me thinks just to show that you can pull it off wonderfully! Plus, I kind of used up my good movie song for you the first time around (thanks Pingu ). I really hope this doesnít come across badly to the other judges because I really think you do have a chance to win this and Iíd love so much for you to go all the way my Spanish chica! BRAVA!

Ruth

Well done Ruth excellent song choice! There are no words to describe how pretty it was. i can see what Kuda and Jacka are both saying though. In one way, the song suited you perfectly, it's a passionate reflection of your journey, but in another way I want to see my Spanish chick rock it out like she always does. However, there is a second song and for a movie performance, that was truly a spectacle.

Shayne Ward

*standing ovation*
Shayne, that was good but not my favourite from you. It was a bit silly spending so much of it jumping around from the falsetto down to your normal tone but it did show off your voice which is great, thereís no denying that. I have a feeling itís going to come down to you and Ruth and if it does then sheís ready to take you on. But, I wonít be so sure till I hear Danyl, so see you again soon for that duet.

*Standing Ovation*

That was simply amazing Shayne! You stripped it all back and really showed the emotion, that meaning-"This Woman's Work!!". You did all that showing off all the aspects of your voice, that rich tone, your highs, your lows, head voice, range, power, the list goes on. It was so vocally colourful to say the least, and definitely up there with your sweetest performance. I was utterly fascinated by that performance. Great job!

Closing the movies round is a man who thinks if he doesn`t get through he will go crazy. Let`s hope he doesn`t go out thenÖ.It`s Danyl Johnson!!!

Danyl Johnson

*standing ovation*
WOW! Talk about bringing it back Mr Johnson! I had goosebumps from the first note, which is always a good sign! Vocally, not the best youíve ever sounded, but technically it was great! Everybody has dipped a little for this part but hopefully youíre all going to bring it for the Duets, because I know for a fact Ruth is! Danyl, I think youíre definitely still in for a place in the Final Two so letís not write you off yet!

Danyl, I'm going to be 100% honest, I did not like that performance at all. Cee Lo Green.. really? His voice and yours do not match at all for me. I find his vocals to be weaker and shakier the more he tries to sing higher. And he's definitely more 'soul' btw, and I see you at the rockier end of the stick. This performance was just a let down in my opinion. I think that might put you at risk of being in trouble tonight

Ruth Lorenzo with Andrea Bocelli

*standing ovation*
First off, a very special thank you to Senor Andrea Bocelli! Ruth, I came across this song during Back to Basics when trying to find a good Spanish song for you to sing and I put it in your back catalogue in case you made it to the final, which never happened. But then this show came along and you got all the way and I had an excuse to use it. And OH, MY, GOD! It was fantabulous, fantastical, SUPERBULOUSO! Iíve ran out of adjectives so, Iím just going to get out of my seat (*standing up*) and Iím just going to stand on the table (*stands up on the judges desk*) and I just want to say...
RUTH FOR THE WIN! THAT SEXY SENORITA IS BACK BABY!
Okay, can somebody please help me down now, itís too high...

I could not understand a single word but it sounded beautifully romantic. I thought it was also quite creative as I had JLo put down for you, so well done for going beyond my expectations. I think you should've gone for the high note at the end as that would've made you shine more. But nevertheless I thought the pair off you worked together well tonight.

Shayne

This was a beautiful performance. I thought that the falsetto was a bit forced but that's alright babe, cause it made the performance sexy (and that's what's important to me). I loved the chorus and the little runs you did. And wow - that range boy! But I still need the more manly side from you tonight!

Danyl

*standing ovation*

Ok Kuda! One minute you say he's on the rockier end of the scale and then you criticised his previous performance of Billie Jean saying it was too rough, not smooth enough. Then when I make it smooth and make it soulful - it's still wrong? Danyl don't listen to Mr Kunaka, that performance was amazing. Danyl has a malleable voice and it can suit whatever he needs to sing! And his voice suited this song properly - his range is there, that soul is there, the rough and smoothness are both present...!

Ruth

Goodness Kuda is being very Cowell-esque! (I like it though) - to be perfectly honest in my opinion - I really liked it! *claps* It's unfortunate that we didn't get any rock from you tonight but that's alright! Because Ruth is so versatile (remember Summertime? GOOSEBUMPS!). Ruth you have achieved so much in this competition and you are my favorite contestant next to Shayne (and Dany boi obvi ) this is going to be so difficult when it comes to the voting!

*throws my pen and paper and the table at Kuda*

Okay, I have officially ran out of things to say, so Iím going to get some Diet Coke or something because I need to just...asdfghjkl. Okay, yeah. EPIC!
