So they appalud Sam for sounding/styling like Celine Dion, and then say Tamera shouldn;t be sounding/looking like Beyonce

Make up their mind. Fact is Gary and Sharon see Tamera as their main competition and just wanted to find something to take away from her performance.

However I appreciate that they stated how talented she is.

Would love to see these two big voiced singers go against each other in the final.

Gary has been talking out of his arse all night, Tamera is a million times better then his acts, and he knows it. Even if Tamera was copying Beyonce abit, so what? Tamera and Sam B are by far the best singer there, imo.

I love that too but honestly I don't think Listen was the right song for her although she can deffo sing it and SAm did well too but it was very predictable. I support Tamera as you know but sometimes I will give critics as well as praises to my favs as well. However, Tamera is the most likely to be successful after XF than the others

Sam Bailey should have been slagged off for what was a cruise ship karaoke, Stars In Thier Eyes Celine Dion impression (albeit a brilliant one). Tamera was much more impressive with her rendition of Listen.

I don't think either sounded like the person they were singing at all. Sam's vocals were better than Celine's plus I think the song was in a lower key (I might be wrong but it sounded that way to me). Plus Tamera sounded no where near as good as Beyonce, and the performance was a bit of a mess, I mean what was with her throwing her arms around the way she did!

It is not just about the fact there is a difference in age, it is more about the fact these two are completely different from each other, vocally and in style.

You seem to have the impression that the judges care about "their" acts and who wins. They don't, they have nothing to do with the acts except for the contrived little clips we see in the VTs. The judges just front the show, apart from turning up for show rehearsals and for the live show, they have no involvement.

That's because Sam was amazing but tamera wasn't!

In fact, Sam's rendition of listen during the audition was much better than tamera's performance yesterday.

Okay, now that I've gotten back on my chair, are you suggesting that Sam sounded like Celine Dion ? CELINE DION ? I strongly recommend you go back, listen to both performances and return with a detailed list of just how Sam managed to pull that one off.

NO-ONE sounds like Celine Dion for Gods sake. Who on this earth would want to sound like that ?

Edit - I just listened to Tamera again and if I'm honest, I don't think it was a particularly good performance. Probably because she tried too hard to sound like Beyonce.

To be honest I no longer listen to Gary's opinion as a valid one, ever since Series 8 when Amelia sang "I'm With You" and he completely criticised a brilliant performance, I no longer trust his judgment. Last night I felt both Sam and Tamera came across as slightly copy-cat but then again anyone who sings those songs IS naturally going to come off as copy-cat unless they radically change it. I thought Tamera at least tried to put her own performance quality into it whereas Sam's literally looked like a scene from Disneyland, very confusing and unfitting for the performance. And i don't think Tamera's vocal was off BECAUSE she tried to sound like Beyonce, she simply was out of tune at certain parts and missing some notes and I don't think those types of songs are right for her voice.
