X-Factor 17 to 12

In the end, the judges made the right choices but did we really have to have all that manufactured drama on the way to those decisions?

Choosing Dexter Haygood and then saddling him with that song and that presentation? He needed something more raw, gritty, that screams soul-deep pain … and he got vanilla.

Kicking off Melanie Amaro then bringing her back … did anybody, except perhaps Melanie herself, believe that was for real?

Making the music for Philip Lomax so loud that we could hardly hear him sing?

Putting through Simone Battle and Tiah Tolliver? C’mon, it would have been more real if Simon had put through Caitlin Koch.

The judges make much of the artist bring ‘authentic’. We could do with a bit more of that on their behaviour and judging! As it is, it’s like failed 4-person stand-up comedy.

Lucky for the show, the talent is enough to keep me watching. Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik, Leroy Bell, Drew … they’re FANTASTIC!

Talking about Drew, they should fire whoever styled her. Her hair was a mess.

Actually, Rachel Crow didn’t look too hot either. The buttons on her top was straining, and she’s such a character, I would have added bright accents somewhere. I think their own clothes were a lot better.

    There is something about Tiah that gives her the star quality. The biggest entertainers are not the best singers, but the drive makes them great. Tiah would make a great pop start! point blank period…..

    Not unless she’s a good songwriter! Otherwise, she’ll have to be a great singer to make it.
