Roxie`s comment

Matt Henry

I thought that was nice but there was no energy, no vitality in that! Beyonce and Cleo for example sang the song with so much excitement…and it just felt a bit lacklustre compared to their wonderful energy and jumping around. I don’t really like the slower pacing of the song either. However, I have to say that is a stunning vocal performance for the first half before the key change, the runs were stunning. You struggled a bit with the key change and the higher range sounded very odd but the other bits were nice so hopefully you’re kept in for that.

George`s comment

Matt

Matt well done for starting the show, it's never and easy task. I thought the performance was average, it wasn't special and i didn't think it was memorable either, but the vocals were good

Welcome to the live shows Matt. You are one of my favourite singers in this competition. I love your voice and I think you've got a great shot at this game. I feel like Jack aimed a bit too highly for you this week because that was a very hard song for a girl to sing, nevermind a guy. And you were quite pitchy at some parts-im not gonna lie. I don't know why Jack picked that song. I really don't! I feel like it's a song that can highlight your weaknesses more than your strengths, and sadly that was the case for you tonight.

Michelle

Michelle there is no doubting that you have very strong vocals and you could really see them in that performance, however i felt at times your vocals felt a bit forced and weren't natural

Roxie's comment

Michelle

I love Anastacia and I don’t mind you Michelle – however! This cover version doesn’t do justice to Anastacia thick, weighty passionate vocal in this song especially. And the tone didn’t suit Michelle’s lighter tone much. However, having said all that, the pitches were all exact as expected of Kuds…so actually that was quite a nice performance. I enjoyed that a lot. And you showed so much passion after the ‘I’ll be stronger’ bit – the vocal was literally amazing after that point – you were singing all of these runs and it just sounded so right.

You have a stunning voice! You really do. And Im gonna say this before anyone else- you are the quieter girl, compared to Leah and Misha but Im still gonna give everybody equal effort when it comes to song choices...so don't nobody tell me that Im neglecting her . Stunning rendition of that song, beautiful arrangement. Well Done

Jahmene

Honey doll! I’m not quite sure what to say about that. I’m a bit disappointed that George didn’t take advantage of the theme with you – the US is a place with so much lovely gospel music, it was a bit disappointing to see a Britney choice. And if I am honest, the vocal was breathy and did seem to be struggling in the higher bits – both of which are unusual for you – I didn’t get the risk. I love risks but not when they don’t make sense and here it didn’t for me honey child.

George`s comment

Jahmene

Jahmene, i personally thought that was beautiful and was very emotion filled and i love you. well done mate

Oooohh the song choice was a miss Jahmene ...It's been a long week and it wasn't particularly hard to fall asleep during that performance. I can sorta see why your mentor picked this for you but at the same time the vocals were quite soggy but I prefer the crispier tone to your vocals. This could've been your best performance because the theme was right up your alleyway, so it's a shame that your mentor settle of something so distasteful.

I remember this song, I once used that for The Lovettes way back on Mix It Up Series 1.

Alys


*claps*

I am about to take Alys in a direction which has been attempted very few times on these shows and which is incredibly difficult to do with an American theme of all themes. If you keep Alys in till next week, I promise you will be rewarded – I’ve got some great material from a certain category of music which is going to be interesting. You did incredibly well. Your voice is meant for these soft beautiful songs. Not to mention, Norah Jones has that thick breathy vocal which suits Alys incredibly well. This track suited you so well as an artist.

George`s comment

Alys

Alys i loved your vocals and it just shows you don't need to have the massive vocals or pitch changes to make a song sound great. Well done

My first good surprise of the series. I did not expect that style of music from you but after giving your real vocal another listen, I gettttt ya . I can see where you're coming from and this could be a really interesting journey for you. good job

Great comments for Alys. Will the public agree?

Next up we are going back to the Male Overs and he has been playing with boomerangs. Singing a cover of Boomerang by Nicole Scherzinger…..it`s Aaron Bayley!!!

Aaron

Ugh…an acoustic version really doesn’t suit this song, like Matt Henry’s song, there was no energy in that. But unlike Matt, the vocal wasn’t on point either – e.g. the ‘on’ and ‘hard’ you hold onto are too flat. The song involves a lot of tooing and froing from higher notes to lower notes and you seemed to struggle with those higher notes. And it felt like a bit of a sing along thing. Sorry, I didn’t really like it that much.

George`s comment

Aaron

Aaron, you made that performance sound very cool and very nice to listen to, however like Matt, i didn't feel like it was very memorable.

You can do better Aaron. I commend your mentor on picking a relevant song but in terms of how you sung it; it could've been done differently and it could've been done better. When you launched into the first verse I thought you needed help as the contrast between chords was toooo much. I agree with Roxie; this song does have very big jumps in chords and I felt like you struggled a bit in that area

Not the greatest comments for Aaron, but if you want him safe...vote him when line`s open!!!

Now up is one of Kudas girls and she is being a bit vain tonight. Singing a cover of Mirror by Lil Wayne ft. Bruno Mars….it`s Misha B!!!

Misha B

Miss B! Mr Kunakaaaa! WOAH! That was an amazing vocal…you hit all those Mirrors! And shattered them and even worse! I actually preferred this version WAY more than that horrible aching noise that was Lil’ Wayne’s song – I am so happy with this I have to clap.
*Claps*
Miss Misha B you never fail to impress and I’m really you’re being mentored by Kuda because I know he’s going to do great vocal things with you! Here’s hoping you turn out to be another Heshima. Also would love to hear you rapping but I’m sure Kuda’s got just the thing for you.

George`s comment

Misha

Misha B, you sang that amazingly but i didn't feel like i was listening to Misha B, it could have been anyone. It was still great though

My girl, I thought we'd agreed to keep it "week one" tonight, but judging by the way you hot those notes? You're here to be a contender! You turned a Lil Wayne song into a Misha B song in minutes. Im so proud of you and the potential that you have in this competition.
One of the best of the night by a mile!
