And yeah because The X Factor is awesome and I do end up falling in love with some of the performances.
Some of the contestants to look out for:
Shocking how talented this 14 year old boy called Jai Waetford is, watching this video makes it impossible to deny it:
Dam girl, you got IT! Love the judges reactions, that's what you get for judging by appearances =P. Dami Im is awesome and so is her husband!:
Oh Kelebek, <3:
The first live show has aired and dayum, it was awesome, especially when it opened with one of my favourite contestants of the show, the mixed group put together during the bootcamp stage, THIRD D3GREE and them singing #thatPOWER by Will.i.am and Justin Bieber:
Jordan's vocals are a bit weak but he meshes well with Kelebek and Jacinta, if he can improve his vocals through the show a bit, they will be quite the dangerous group within The X Factor. Also as I said before, <3 Kelebek, she is amazing and I find her incredibly HOT O.o. It was an amazing and energy filled performance of Will.i.am and Justin Beiber's #thatPOWER but not my favourite, my favourite would definitely be Judith Hill's version she did on The Voice US - she totally rewrote the whole song and actually made it listenable (to me), it was sensationally good! Can't believe Judith didn't win but I suppose Americans are unfortunately head over heels for their country music =/. So glad that now I have two versions of the #thatPOWER song which I can LISTEN to =).
Anyway NOW for the ACTUAL best performance of the night from the k-pop lover, Dami Im. I love Dami Im she has such a captivating and powerful voice, can't believe the judges didn't put her through bootcamp (I was EXTREMELY devastated when she didn't get through) and the only reason she got to the top 24 was because another contestant pulled out - I would say lucky her but what really needs to be said is LUCKY US! Dami Singing "One" by U2:
For a song she didn't know, she performed and SANG it so amazingly, can't believe it! Also Dami's new look is amazing and that quirky side of her, sexy. You can check out her youtube channel if you want - Dami Singer (subscribe like me =D).
Oh yeah, I guess I should post the video of Jai as well even though I didn't think it was all that great of a performance - Jai singing "Fix You" by Cold Play:
My initial thoughts when hearing the song by Jai was 'hmmmm, the beat and fireworks have more character then him', but after 5 listens I suppose it was a good performance =/. Still sad that The X Factor Australia are plugging Jai so much, especially when there are other contestants who are currently much better then him. I admit Jai has an immense amount of talent but he just seems too young to market him so strongly above other performers (who are much better then his current self).
And yeah since I also like Joelle and her personality a lot, I'll link to her song in the live - Joelle - "Sweet Nothing" by Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch.
