For me it would be G4 with `Hit me baby one more time`. It was an awful song choice which made an awful performance. Yours?

Leon's 'Money Can't Buy Me Love' was particularly painful. Anyone who put a bet on him being the winner after that must have made a mint.

The majority of the song choices Kelly made for Janet were pretty subpar, but 'I Want You Back' and especially 'MMMBop' take the crown for absolutely terrible song choices.

Amelia with 'Billie Jean' - a rock version of that song just didn't work at all, Kelly virtually stitched her up on the first live show.

Other silly song choices were Olly with Don't Stop Me Now, Lloyd with Bleeding Love and Rikki with Respect.

District 3 with Simply The Best was hardly a rip-roaring way kick off the live shows either.

I don't know what was on Tulisa's mind when she decided to turn that song into a ballad.

This was a really bad song choice for Ella, I liked what Jamie East suggested in her HolyMoly interview that she should have sang her sing off song If Your Not The One on the guilty pleasures week performance show.

even though I love District3 some of their songs choices(or Louis song choices) were really bad
I swear-a really dated boyband song and the spinning around with petals floating made it really cheesy!
Dynmaite-Although I actually like this song and the way they sing it,it came across like high school musical pop and not their style at all.

That's why I found it hypocritical of Tulisa to say to Chris "if people want to buy Elton John they go buy Elton John."

Really? Well, then she picked some subpar songs for herself I guess. This thread is about bad song choices during the live shows, so it doesn't matter who picked the song.

Don't forget The Conway Sisters doing that 'one voice' song. Has to be one of the worst songs I've ever heard.

Tulisa didn't.

She just ripped off a much, much better Angus & Julia Stone cover

Pretty much Tulisa's choices in rock week a couple years ago- Tik Tok and Crazy.

Treyc got a run of boring songs (aside from Whole Lotta Love) which had all been done before multiple times (Relight My Fire, One, Don't Wanna Miss A Thing, Purple friggin' Rain)

She showed on Whole Lotta Love she could work the stage and deliver rock vocals. I don't know a) how she ended up in the B2 and b) why the producers didn't make more of that!

Most contestants say they have a limited list of songs they have to choose from and she has mentioned she wanted to sing "In The Summertime" instead of Mmmbop but the producers wouldn't let her.

I think there's a lot more that goes on backstage than the show lets us see.
