For the past three performance weeks, I didn’t bother to watch the X-FACTOR over the telly due to my disappointments in the previous result nights.  But when I learned that the worst performers were finally voted out in those weeks, I sighed in relief and said the ‘X-FACTOR is back on the right track’.  It is now very encouraging for everyone who spent money and time patronising the show every Saturdays and Sundays that at least they are watching worthy and quality talent competition.

The remaining four finalists wowed both the live audience and the millions of UK fans who are glued on their televisions as Olly Murs, Joe McElderry, Stacey Solomon, and Danyl Johnson, rendered their outstanding performances to hit a spot in the much anticipated finals.   In the first half of the competition, singing songs from Michael Jackson’s best albums, the finalists tried to outperform each other by giving their best of the night.  Each singer delivered their respective songs with so much class and confidence that the judges hardly found any off beam from the contestants singing showdown. Although Simon Cowell, as always, could never be perfectly pleased at all.

Olly Murs, considered the dark horse at the beginning of the show but has gone really far in the contest, relive the Beatles classic ‘We can Work it Out’ and convinced the judges how excellent his singing talent is. Joe McElderry, is not my favourite but he has the best vocals of the night and he simply owned the Journey original ‘Open Arms’ in the second round.

Louis was so impressed and hinted that if Joe recorded that song in the morning he would surely have a number one with it.  The only rose left in the stage Stacey Solomon sang her heart out the West Side Story’s ‘Somewhere’ and received a rousing approval from both the audience and the judges. My bet Danyl Johnson did the Whitney Houston hit ‘I have Nothing’ and as always nailed it to bits persuading Louis to say ‘The song is I Have Nothing but I think you’ve got everything.’

One more Saturday and a new X-FACTOR star is born.
