After a short message from Sir Paul McCartney, the eight remaining contestants put their all into performing Beatles’ tracks.
Boy band One Direction have already been likened to the Beatles and Louis commented that it was great to see the fab five performing the fab four. They may be doing well but they have a long, long way to go to match the success of The Beatles.
Matt’s big production number, Come Together, was only lacking one thing – his shirt. Not that I mind seeing him without it, far from it. But Simon was right, he said it looked like he had been dragged from the loo on to the stage to do a performance. This week Matt had a troupe of dancers, which he seemed to enjoy immensely. He was surrounded by dancers in red sequined hot pants, so who can blame him? His performance was fabulous, Dannii’s comment said it all ‘The best bit is, when you can not hear what the judges are saying you know its good’.
Mary belted out another fabulous performance, as did Rebecca. They know what works for them and they stick to it. Both, once again, were faultless performances.
Katie was spared the agonising wait to find out if she was through to next week. She was the first to find out her fate – it was the kindest thing to do after four weeks of being in the sing-off. This week she had a radical image change, her wild blond locks replaced by a cute chestnut brown pixie crop. She looked every inch the 60’s girl singing the 1965 hit Help! Katie’s new look was complimented perfectly with Very’s own Love Label dress!
Cher and her ‘stairway to nowhere’ led her to the sing-off accompanied by Paije. With Wagner still in the competition I find this beyond belief, and so did the crowd if the boo’s were anything to go by. All of the judges agreed that neither Paije nor Cher deserved to be in the final two. It’s obvious that Wagner should be there but who else did the judges think should have joined him?
Find out next week if Wagner will last…
