2nd week Song choices X Factor 2007

Can the performers overcome the understandable case of nerves they felt last week, causing several acts to produce below-par performances?
The only way to find out is to watch - but here’s what they’ll be singing when you do:

Alisha - I say a Little Prayer
Andy - Stayin’ Alive
Beverley - I Have Nothing
Daniel - Build Me Up Buttercup
Emily - I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman
Futureproof - If You Don’t Know Me By Now
Hope - Lady Marmalade
Leon - Home
Niki - My Heart Will Go On
Rhydian - The Phantom of the Opera
Same Difference - Breaking Free


  1. I realy like same-difference and Alisha.I realy think Sharon or simon should win.

  3. I am Irish and I have to say I am ashamed of Louis Walsh and his bitchy behaviour and rudeness.GROW UP LOUIS. Absolutely enjoy the show it’s great to see such talent in all catagories.

  4. Missed the show last week, just watched 2nd one.
    Early days for some contestants, but what is with Dermot, bring back Kate, at least she has personality suited to the show, not Dermot, he is out of his zone.
    Stick t BB

  5. daniel and alisha in the bottom 2. id have thought hope and emily would be in the bottom 2. hope all looked like a bunch of hookers using their looks and bodies to get votes. they were awesome last week, this week not good at all, and emily was flat (just like simon said)

  6. are all the judges deaf! Alisha sang off key on both attempts but she got through!!! No wonder people don’t want to see live music if this is the best the industry can offer

  9. I’ve been connected with the music business for over 45 years, and this is the worst bunch of ‘Artistes’, with certain exceptions, I’ve ever seen gathered in one place.
    Mr. Cowell, what are you doing, allowing such a ‘farce’ of a competition to go ahead?
    The judges all seem to have lost their marbles, or are they just in it for the money?
    The majority of these acts would be hard pushed to even be offered an audition with a ‘Real Entertainment Agency’, let alone secure a booking.

  10. Rhidian you gave a haunting performance last night - you have such presence and gifts - don’t take notice of any negative comments about you - but do take notice of any positive constructive criticism - you will go far - (Did I hear someone say ‘Broadway’?).

    Comment by CAZ — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 07:48

  11. Leon has had a hard time form all the judges but I think he has the most richest of voices. He dosent need negative critism, his voice would sound wonderful on CD. AND hes good looking!

    Comment by Iris — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 10:01

  12. Many people think that having a singing voice is a ‘talent’, but they are wrong. Having a singing voice is a gift, knowing how to use it is a talent.
    Just like people who play instruments, there are people who can play piano, for instance, and then there are pianists.
    In my humble opinion, there are only 2 people, at this stage, with talent. They are Niki, and Rhydian.
    Niki’s ability to sing comes naturally, and with more self belief, she could be a world class singer.
    Rhydian is someone who has worked on his presentation, and his craft as a singer. He may appear to be pompous, and an ‘I love me’ person, but there’s no denying the fact that he can sing.
    As for the rest of them, well, i must admit they are getting better, week by week, but the coaching should have been done well before the show started. This is like applying for a job when you know nothing about the work involved.
    Finally, to slag the Judges would be unfair. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, whether right or wrong, and the less said about these people, the better. Just watch, and make up your own mind. That’s why there’s a telephone voting system. It would be interesting to know what the telephone companies are making out of this show.

    Comment by Mike — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 10:12

  13. It seems the voting has already got tactical between the judges. Daniel had a bad song choice but was way more consistent in both his performances. I think Danni voted Daniel out thinkng Simon would vote Alisha - then the vote would go to the public. Simon played this to his advantage and saw a chance to get to Louis. What a shame the results reflect the petty infighting bewteen judges, it’s only going to get worse!!

    Comment by The X gang — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 11:38

  14. Not as much talent in this years X Factor compared to last. Niki and Beverley the only two that seem to shine. Loved Niki’s dress last night any info on wher I can get one!!

    Comment by Tina — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 12:06

  15. Very tactical vote by the judges last night. Daniel had a better voice and was only voted off because of Sharon’s tantrum last week. There is no way they would have left her with just one act unless both the remaining girls had come last.

    Comment by John — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 12:35

  16. What is with all the negitive comments leon is gettin i thought he sang brilliant!! love the song he sang!! futureproof are HOT! Nikki to win :)

    Comment by natalie — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 12:50

  17. I find it such a shame that the X Factor seems to no longer be about finding genuine singing talent. Those who can sing seem to be criticised and those who can’t, applauded. The show is promoting those that they want to win and manipulating the public votes. Putting together a girl group that are manufactured to get votes by wearing as little as possible to ’sell’ themselves with very little, if any singing talent is certainly undermining the show’s reputation.

    Comment by Sarah — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 14:03

  18. Rhydian was fantastic last night! Can’t wait to see what he comes up with next week. I would like to hear him do “Stairway to Heaven” or “Gold” or even “Toatl Eclipse of the Heart”. Niki my second favourite, she should sing “You’re my world” or “Anyone who had a heart” (Cilla Black). They are the only two acts worth watching the programme for!!

    Comment by Helen — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 18:49

  19. P.s.
    Niki is so much better than Celine Dion!!

    Comment by Helen — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 18:50

  20. i think it shouldnt be down to the judges at all cuz its usually gets personal, why cant they just boot the person with the lowest votes out? that would be the most fair way to do it. how many chances does alisha get to prove herself exactly? next week if shes in the bottom 2 are they going to save her again?? shes been in the bottom 2 twice for a reason.

    Comment by lindsay — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 19:50

  21. Alisha & Sharon needs to look at songer alisha can own and add her own riffs too. she is not stretching herself and is too safe. When she should keep climbing she drops back down she needs to experiment a lot more.

    She can also look at Mary J Blidge, Lauryn Hill, Stevie Wonder, also Billie Holiday and some blues singers where she can make the songs her own and bring them into the present - those types of voices where her tone can fit.

    Anyway these are all suggestions!

    Comment by Dmar — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 20:34

  22. there’s only a few good ones this year but without a doubt only one winner Nikki!!!

    Comment by julie — Sunday, 28 October, 2007 @ 21:13

  23. Yeah, thought Rhydian was awesome, sent shivers down my spine. I saw POTO last year and Rhydian was far better than the professional who sang it. He has a cold quality which worked well for that song. He and Niki are the only ones worth watching. Can’t understand it because during the auditions, the singing standard seemed so much higher than last year’s, but the overall final 12 are really poor.

    And what’s with the presenter (soz can’t remember his name) cutting off Celine Dion in mid sentence. She looked furious, especially when he said that she could really talk. That was just plain rude. He really has no finesse at all.


    Comment by Lizzie — Monday, 29 October, 2007 @ 00:14

  24. Does anyone know how to spell Rhidian or Rhydian - or is one English and the other Welsh ?

    Comment by CAZ — Monday, 29 October, 2007 @ 07:58

  25. does anyone know the singer that originally sings the song that leon sings? i really like it.
    and leon is propa sexy!

    Comment by rhian — Monday, 29 October, 2007 @ 09:43

  26. It is a joke, even at the auditions stage the judges werent taking it serious.
    i cant believe some of the people they put out of the auditions at the begining compared to some of the contestants that are still there. are my ears the only ones around here that work? i also hate the fact that some contestants are only still in because they got a sympathy vote from the judges. next year i think the judges will have to get their ass in gear and put people onstage that can actually hold a note and sing, most of these contestants belong in a backstreet kareoke bar.

    saying that, LEON TO WIN!

    Comment by Deborah — Monday, 29 October, 2007 @ 12:29

  27. I don’t like Celine Dion’s new song. It sounded awful! I realy HATE Rhiddian. He is so into himself and big-headed! I think Alisha should do more powerful songs as the4 ones she’s doing now don’t sound right for her.

    Comment by Heather — Monday, 29 October, 2007 @ 12:51

  28. Leon To Win..Hes Amazing..Cant Believe Louis And Simons Comments They Gave On Saturday..Louis Is Letting Us Irish People Down…

    Louis Grow Up…!Godsake Theres Worse People In The Competition Than Leon…! Leons The Best..Get Rid Of…


    Comment by Dorothea! — Monday, 29 October, 2007 @ 23:05

  29. Is it just me or can anybody else not bare to look at the screen when hope are singing! Their voices arent the worst but what they wear makes me feels so sick…… younge kids watch the show and if they actually had talent they wouldnt have to wear slaggy clothes like that….. personally i dont want to watch insecure girls wearing nothing i want to watch talented people singing… so much money in the show maybe its time they spent some of it on getting clothes that fit the girls!!!!!! just me ????

    Comment by Mim — Tuesday, 30 October, 2007 @ 10:25

  30. hope please you guys should cover your deginity and expose ur talent becos a woman who exposes her body has no deginity

    Comment by nahi — Tuesday, 30 October, 2007 @ 14:38

  31. I love Rhydian and Niki both are very talented and can sing very well

    I don’t mind Hope’s image but I think they are totally overhyped as they can’t sing that well and have hidden backing singers to beef up their sound and they don’t look right together. They look a bit amateurish and sixth formerish

    Comment by Louis — Friday, 2 November, 2007 @ 01:13

  32. I think Rhydian is great, he has confidence and a great voice.Celine Dion is a fantastic singer she has such emotional songs. She makes Canadian’s proud. She use to sing only in French and was booed when she first began singing in English. I love looking up old songs she has sang on utube. She is one of my favourite singers. As far as the girl group Hope is concerned i personally think they are terrible. They cant sing and have no personality they sang the same song 2 weeks in a row. I hope they aren’t trying to be another Spice Girl’s because that is outdated! I love the show and hoped some of the younger contestants would of made it to the live performances but as usual i was disappointed when the two young boys never made it. Leona is a star.

    Comment by Iona — Friday, 2 November, 2007 @ 16:48

  33. o my god i really wanted futureproof 2 win i love them 2 peices . when they got voted out i couldnt believe it and i hope they stay together and preform.now futureproof are out i want Andy to win

    Comment by michaela age:12 — Tuesday, 6 November, 2007 @ 15:13

  34. I am so so so glad same diference were called 1st,back off louis!!! go back to dredging up remakes for pondlife to sing!!

    One thing though,why is simon putting sarah in 50’s olivia newton john dresses???? All cutesy and nice,yes she is,but if you look at the vt when theyre introduced she has a serious look in her eyes,let her show that,and get those god awful cardigans off her brother too.They sing in tune week after week,stop making them cutesy and let them show they can be as serious as any of them

    Comment by lee — Saturday, 10 November, 2007 @ 22:36

  35. I must say only Rhydian’s performance is highly professional…same differents nice to watch in the theatre. The rest have no personality..simple what I would call.

    It doesn’t matter if Rhydian loves himself…we are talking about performance at this point..we have to recognise his performance, not just hate him..it’s wrong.

    Comment by Peter Pan — Wednesday, 14 November, 2007 @ 20:17

  36. same difference are my fave coz they are generally nice people they are cheesy, entertaining and they have not bben in the bottom 2


    Comment by 3mmad3311 — Saturday, 17 November, 2007 @ 12:34
