Last night was movie night on The X Factor 2016 and the contestants really showed how much they have progressed over the course of the competition. I thoroughly enjoyed the night and thought that all six contestants did amazingly well. Judges Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell were there to support them. Of course some of the contestants did better than others and below is my top three.
3. Saara Aalto – My Heart Will Go On
Saara is fast becoming my favourite contestant on the X Factor. Her vocals are always pitch perfect and she always gives 100%. She is by far the singer on this year’s show.
Last night, Louis said she was amazing and always delivered, whilst Nicole said that the last note was amazing. Simon thought she controlled the vocals perfectly.
2. Emily Middlemas – It Must Have Been Love
Emily’s stripped down version of Roxette’s nineties classic was mesmerising.The vocals were so fragile but controlled at the same time it was perfect. Emily finished the show on a high and deserved all the praise she got. I really adored the whole thing.
Louis said that her vocals were haunting but would have liked to see Emily move next time. Nicole added that she should let out more fire.
1. Matt Terry – Writings On The Wall
I thought Matt Terry’s performance of Sam Smith’s song was safe last night but thinking back it is now one of the most memorable songs of last night. Every week he proves that he is one of the best male vocalists on the show and looks like a popstar already.
Louis said he deserved to be on the stage, whilst Sharon added that Matt new his comfort zone. Simon said that this was what he had been waiting for and that the song took balls.
The X Factor results will be revealed tonight at 8pm on ITV.
