If Luke is "chosen" i.e. "producer fixed" to sing this, he'll make the top 3

He does it really well, but most of the X Factor viewers won't have a clue what it is, unfortunately.

This woman's work and first time ever I saw your face are brilliant ones to show off tameras range so either d those would be good. I would guess that FTEISYF would get more votes from the younger generation who would maybe be more familiar with that one.

Even though 'without you' is no very creative that would probably be the song choice to get the most votes for Sam bailey.

End of the road would be good. They would have to do something different as well to make it sound less like a tribute band but it would show off their harmonies.

Skinny love for Luke definitely.

Well it's a good thing that there are two songs this week. One of them's definitely up-tempo.

Outstandingly dull choices for Nicholas and Rough Copy. If they picked those then they have extremely mediocre taste in music.

I voted for "First time..." for Tamera but I regret it now, I think Emotion would be better and she wouldn't have to deal with the Matt Cardle stigma on the song. Having said that, First Time is a great song that should fit her register. She can really belt out the high parts and bring the show to a halt so may as well go for a big risk at this stage.

I know i give Sam a lot of crap about the typical song choices and as a result I feel a bit hypocritical picking Without You for her but she will slay it as usual I'm sure. And I like that song.

I picked One Day Like This for Luke because I think that could be a major moment for him. I can picture the white spotlights, key change and supporting choir already.


Gahhhhh I'm dying to know what Hannah's choices were now
