I love how the show called The Collective last year's "breakout success", completely ignoring the fact that Samantha Jade is comfortably the highest selling act from last year's series,

My thoughts on the auditionees...

Jai Waetford - Different Worlds/Don't Let Me Go - Typical young boy with an acoustic guitar and Bieber hair. He actually has quite an interesting and nice voice though so wouldn't be too upset to see him get far.
Kelebek - Good Feeling - She had a really good voice actually. She's very 'current' and I like that about her but I think her personality could grate. Loved Redfoo during her audition.
Tyler Hudson - Unwell - Oooh he's lovely. His voice is alright, nothing exceptional. But he's really unique with his voice and genre out of those we've seen so far so I like him for that. Cute single-father sobstory!
JTR - As Long As You Love Me - Woaaah. I really liked this. The rap was a bit meh but the rest of it was great. They'll totally be in the Live Shows to be honest.
Dami Im - Hero - She had a really pleasant voice but that's about it. She wasn't amazing but was still good. Very average to be honest, assume she'll get cut at Bootcamp. Her cat face stockings were totally awesome though.
Ellie Lovegrove - Girl on Fire - AMAZING. My favourite so far, absolutely LOVE her. Her voice was stunning and I loved the arrangement of the song too.
John Roubos - Tonight I'm Loving You - Lmao, yay for novelty. Somebody on the youtube said thank god it isn't the UK edition because they'd get through to the Lives. So true! Loved his dancing though.
Veanka Howard - The Climb - OMFG WHAT WHY DID PEOPLE LIKE THIS WHAT THE HELL. It was literally the worst of the entire episode!! Even the Gangnam Stylers were better. So pitchy - worse than Shiane!


Where was Vendulka's audition in the episode? Yet it's on youtube? -suspect-

Vendulka's audition was part of the second episode, which aired tonight.
Wow, you thought veanka was awful?! I mean, her singing was nothing to get too excited about and the standing ovation was totally because of the backstory, but it wasn't worse than joke auditions, certainly not worse than Shiane, whose final performance on the show was as bad as many things youse during the auditions!

Veanka's performance was literally horrific. :|

It was SO pitchy. I can sing better than that for goodness sake.

I think we can all agree that anyone with a sense of pitch could do better

Hello all not sure how long my post will end up being, I have seen the first two episodes so far Vendulka is my favorite I was a huge fan last year and I am hoping she makes the live shows this year I am still angry about her being sent over in favor of Shiane Hawke whose only memorable moment on the show was her car crash sing off performance I don't think Stay was the best performance I have heard from Vendulka as Ronan said I believe she can do better but she still 100% deserved to go through to the next round hopefully she brings back her guitar now she has proven that she is versatile I would LOVE to see her get Dannii as a mentor she would be a fantastic mentor for her and would be able to get her to balance her song choices.


Jai Waetford was a lot better than I was expecting he's very different from the generic kid singer who just sings big ballads. If he is put in the live shows he will be unstoppable, I could easily see him being a success story of X Factor AU as he has a lot of potential from what I have heard so far.

I would be surprised if we don't see Tyler Hudson in the live finals, I don't think we have seen the best of him yet he has a really good country rock voice that would bring an interesting flavor and diversity into the live shows, I hope he continues to pick styles within his genera and doesn't try and be too mainstream.

I was incredibly confused by the judges and audience reaction to Veanka Howard's audition it was not good at all I didn't like it, I am not a fan of her style of singing.

Ellie Lovegrove Really impressed me and like Vendulka & Tyler I don't think we have seen the best of this girl yet she is a breath of fresh air, she could make this season very interesting.

I thought John Roubos would actually get through, not that I thought he should have but I was shocked when Redfoo said no because I thought he would like the fun acts.

I like Redfoo as a judge so far, he is a different kind of judge to how I first imagined he would be on the show.

I am on the fence with Kelebek, I'm not really sure she is my kind of act but I can't deny she is good at what she does.

Yay, my favourite version of X Factor!

Great to see Vendulka back!

I hope our X Factor is edited more like this this year- it feels a lot fresher!

As for the judges- I like Ronan far more than Gary. He feels like the judge Gary should be. Redfoo is wearing some absolutely dreadful trousers (it's like he's skinned Julie Goodyear), but could add some comic relief to the panel. Dannii is as great as I remember her to be.

On another note, Australian's have even better names than American Idol contetants!

Kelebek, Ellie Lovegrove, Veanka!

Agree with all of this. I hope the UK show is more like the Australian show this season.

Kelebek, Ellie Lovegrove, Veanka!
Agreed.

The kids rule so far, amazing talent!

Dannii is great but as usual she will be at her best when the lives start. Redfoo is doing a great job. I think I prefer it just with him,Dannii and Ronan because it makes the panel look completely fresh.

Only thing I dislike are sob stories. I get that they want to create a story behind the talent but to me it sort of kills the performance. Harsh maybe but the truth.

Jai Waetford - eh I find him very average although he is quite young so that is probably the main reason why. If he came back in a few years time I could see him being really good but right now he seems a bit meh for my liking

Kelebek - I really love this girl. She's got this fantastic essence about her when she's performing and her vocals and rapping are like a great mix between Kat Dahlia and Charli xcx and I really hope he makes the live shows as right now I adore her.

Tyler Hudson - A pleasant voice but nothing great for me. Also he looked so awkward on stage at the start but I can see him making at least judges houses at the moment.

JTR - I can't help but think District 3 2.0 when I look at these boys. Overall a good performance and teenage girls are gonna go ape for them which means they'll have a strong chance if they make the live shows

Dami Im - Distinctly average and shouldn't of got through in the first place in my opinion. Although I reckon she'd do well doing K-Pop

Ellie Lovegrove - She's got a heck of a lot of potential and has a great voice. Really something great about her and although personally I am not a fan at this moment in time, I think she's going to be a serious contender.

John Roubos - This guy reminds me so much of me when I attempt karaoke or witness someone drunk doing it. Yeah not good.

Veanka Howard - I think this girl really just needs to be eliminated at bootcamp as she sounds really average and as mentioned before pitchy as hell. I'd of preferred John going through over her.

Adira-Belle - They seem like a good group but I think their audition was really over the place and they seemed like a bunch of solo artists trying to shine over the rest. I could see them doing well though and XF OZ hasn't had a girl band go in ages.

Barry Southgate - Good soulful voice but seems to be only able to sing in a very limited range. When he went for the attempted high notes he basically went silent although I think he could do well with the right songs.

Calmell Teagle - First off, damn she is pretty. Second she's got one heck of a voice and I do admit when I first heard I Will Always Love You I was already doubting her but damn she can sing fantastically although I was disappointed when the big moments came and it felt a bit meh but I think she's could do really well.

Rohan Herring - Oh lord a guy with a very cabaret voice but has a sob story so that means he'll go far. Either way very average and hope he doesn't get far.

Straight Up - Energetic, good voices, great chemistry, performing ability and can dance. Yep these guys are basically a group that could be simply brilliant. its a very unique group and I hope they do well as right now I adore them.

Vendulka - She's baaaaack. Yep same as last year, fantastic voice, something quirky and interesting about her that you just can't help but watch her. Anyway another one I really like.

Me too. I liked how Ronan said that Nat should have put her through last year however I think Vendulka not getting through last year was a blessing in disguise this year there is a possibility she could get Dannii who would make an amazing mentor for her whereas last year she would have been stuck with Nat who gave Angel and Bella many questionable song choices.

Hmm, I might have to watch Veanka Howard back to hear what was so terrible. Because I thought she was just average, not worse than Shiane or the Gagnum Style joke auditions.

Everyone here in Australia is totally loving Dannii MInogue at the moment after two episodes. Some were not sure about Dannii, pretty much those who didn't see her on Uk Sao that.

However , most fans wanna get rid of Natalie and being back Mel B.

Redfo is seen more as a fun clown for entertainment , as opposed to credibility.
