Looking at these choices I'd say we are in for a Sam C and Hannah bottom 2.

Luke could be great. Wanted a stripped down choice from him for ages.

Sam Bailey Something. Could she have thought of anything more predictable?
her song choices are boring me to tears.

Actually looking forward to seeing Nicholas sing Someone Like You to be honest. Will be interesting if he does it justice.

Interesting pick for Tamera. She could be near the top of the leader board if her performance equals how good this choice is on paper.

Glad Rough Copy are finally singing something that isn't cheesy.

I didn't expect some of these songs tbh I think Diamonds are Forever is a great choice for Tamera.

Tamera has the opportunity to take this song on and make it her own and steal the show, we will see if she can do it

I can see Tamera heading for trouble again. She keeps singing slow songs week after week. She's not Leona who had the outstanding vocals to pull it off every week without looking boring.

Tamera singing Diamonds are Forever!!! This could be epic!

Sam Callahan singing Faith though? Horrific! These have to be the most UNCREATIVE song choices by a mile this week.

How many more times will we listen to Viva la Vida being massacred?

I don't think so I think Diamonds are Forever suits her voice perfectly can imagine her singing it already .

Sam C is only going to avoid the bottom 2 this week if Gary lays into him again with harsh critique.

going by those song choices I really think Hannah and tamera could be in trouble

I thought this week with almost a free rein we would have seen them do something more in keeping with their potential direction , when in tamera's case especially they are making her look even more dated rather than focussing on her youth

I agree in some way. I really want them to focus on selling Tamera as the fun girl she is! She's been given ballad after bloody ballad and it's driving me nuts. She was so good doing Ain't Nobody!

But since Beneath Your Beautiful in Week 2, I actually like this choice.

if she sings it straight I just cant see any way she can get anywhere close to the original version of the song

I can only assume they are gonna try some sort of twist with it and that itself could be dangerous with such a classic song
