(and if you look at my previous posts I have supported her) but all this raving about her is doing her no good. Her song was sung well but it was not stand out-ish and it did nothing for me. Neither did her audition.

I feel like I'm going crazy because everyone seems to love her, but honestly if you listen to her, her voice is not anything special!

She doesn't do much for me either. Too generic. It's irritating how much she's been slated on the hl thread tonight though - worst of the night etc. etc. She certainly wasn't the worst; but it happens every time an Irish girl appears on X Factor. Janet was slaughtered on here. Depressing stuff.

yeah she's good but she's not the best, I think that andrea girl in the over's is probably one of the best

Not everyone loves her Abi, she's perhaps the most disliked out all of the girls. There's a thread for her 'Melanie to be eliminated in the first live shows?'.

I think what would be cruel is all this hyping up and then sending her home at Judges Houses.

She sings quite well but there's really nothing brilliant about her.

Well i for 1 think she was amazing and judging by my twitter and FB feed everybody agrees with me... i know they are all under pressure but surely nobody was under more pressure (maybe Jade) but even Jade did not go on stage as number 7... with only places to go thru...
the fact she nearly broke down but managed to pull herself back is brilliant.. without doubt deserves her top place...

She is good just not stand out. Hence why she didn't make second, or third time.

And the crying at the end was just to put her through gets too much really!!

Janet was slaughtered because she was rubbish though Patsy, and she was from Northern Ireland, so was British.

It's got nothing to with Melanie being Irish and is ridiculous to suggest otherwise. Tesco Mary is Irish and was hugely popular, she even topped the votes on some weeks,

I thought the song choice was not great for her tonight. Too flat and not very melodic.....with the right songs, the sky is the limit for her.

I thought she was pretty bad tonight.

Isn't her family friends with Louis ? Maybe that's why she went through ?

I agree. People are saying about her song choice - I had to really think to remember what she even sang......

Nope....she said the first time she had a conversation with him was at the show in 2011.

It was a rather dull and tuneless ballad by Katy Perry.

I've always said she lacks star quality. She'll keep ending up in bottom two if she makes it to the lives.

No buts...
Melanie's audition was fantastic - so much passion and emotion, easily one of the top 2 along with Hannah. Tamera demonstrated once again that she isn't ready for this. Very shouty and desperate. I can't even imagine how she would have handled being in Melanie's position as the last singer. I think she would have been a wreck. Abi was interesting at first but I was bored by the end of her song.

Tamera has more potential than Melanie though, and that is what they are looking for.

All the girls sounded poor tonight except for Hannah, Tamara was the worst IMo and as for Abi, nice voice, but a poor mans Ellie Gould.
Melanie is a good singer, she does not deserve the slating she is getting at all. But it is mostly from fans of her competition so should be disregarded. I say best of luck to all the girls.

What I did not like tonight was her crying etc, just sing already and don't be desperate. Its not the end of the world is it, if she goes home. I believe daffyd's with the spoiler going by the editing tonight, she is not really Nicole's cup of tea. But I think Melanie has a lot more in her locker than we seen tonight, the editing of her singing was scrappy and awful.

He said he knew her family from her previous auditions.

I have no vested interest nor have a favourite from the girls yet. However I think Melanie is very run of the mill.
