I'm not doubting that she can sing and is talented but when she sings I just don't feel it I don't feel like she has that star quality for me .

Me neither. The producers seem to be pimping her to us for the finals, though. Quite a small, ordinary voice, I seem to recall her performance was better last year, little charisma and she just feels dated somehow.

She just doesn't have star quality in my view. The voice is there, but the rest is not. She should have auditioned for The Voice instead, because I just don't think The X Factor can do anything for her at this stage.

I'm not bothered by her. I had a memory of liking her last year but I think I'd confused her with Jade Collins. Yes, all Irish girls look and sound the same!

She is an okay singer, but nothing more i'm afraid, and bringing her back year after year is'nt doing her any favours.

I think she has improved over the last three years she auditioned, but I just don't quite understand the hype she gets on here. There's plenty better girls (Tamera, Relley etc) who could definitely outshine her imo

My thoughts exactly.

It is called the X Factor not the "best trier and non giver upperer".
If she had the X factor she would not be on try number 4

I just can't see anyone buying her music. Waste of time putting her through.

I'm with you OP
I think her look improved loads but he voice is still the same from her first audition. She needs to improve it in order to be a contender

Personally i think she is amazing, and has wowed me since day 1.. i think she has improved year on year and people forget she is on just 19... For people to say she is dated and ordinary i find insulting towards her, and i would bet that if this was the first time we had seen her people would be raving about her! Cos ive seen it in the past with artists not even close to her abilty... she looks good, got a great likable personality... got no nasty skeletons in her closet like some acts do! Shown great character and determination and belief in her abilty.. and bear in mind every time she did not make the lives she had to pick herself up and find ways to improve and she did just that... Listen to her voice... and not look at the TV and think it is Melanie again as it seems many are doing.. get behind this likable Fighter.. atleast she hits the notes, does not forget her words... sings in tune.. and is not wild she is total control of her voice... this year we see a stripped back Melanie.. singing a upto date song and i thought she nailed it... anyway rant over.. lol #TeamMel

I don't understand all the hype for Melanie on here either. She was ok but has no star quality. There's hundreds of pretty girls with an ok voice out there, she's nothing special. That said of course I hope she does well in the competition and maybe she'll end up surprising me if she makes it to the live shows!

I don't remember her from previous years either (this is the first time I've watched the audition shows, I usually only watch the lives) so I'm basing my opinion purely on what I saw last night.

I think unless you posted without reading ANY thread on here that mentioned her name, you already knew the answer to your question.

You know full well there are many people slating her.

I however think she's incredible.

She's just kind of flaccid. I thought The X Factor was the full package - the look, the voice, the performance, and the personality - and this girl only has one of those, the voice, and even that isn't exactly traffic-stopping. Also, the songs she picks are always so obvious which basically tells me she isn't very musically creative at all. I don't know, I just don't believe she's a potential popstar.
