Song Choices for Elton John week

Elton John is the theme on the X Factor this week, with a performance by the great man himself on Sunday.

Here’s what we know about the contestant’s song choices so far. We’ll update this list as we know more:

Mary – Can You Feel The Love Tonight
Wagner – I’m Still Standing / Circle Of Life
Katie – The Bitch Is Back or Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)
Paije – Crocodile Rock
Cher – Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
Matt – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
1 Direction – Something About The Way You Look Tonight
Aiden – Rocket Man (I Think It’s Going To Be A Long Long Time)
Rebecca – Candle In The Wind


  1. Either Matt or Aiden should have had Tiny Dancer and Paige deserves to be taken more seriously.

  4. If these guys have to learn elton john songs because they are unfamiliar with them (as danni said) then they cant really be serious singers – they should (no matter what age) be familar with the works of truely talented artists Like Elton, Freddie Mercury/Queen and Eric Clapton!

  5. Is the X Factor a singing competition or Resilience and acting competition?. I used to admire Simon for his honesty in the show but he is beginning to cheat and going against his own rules. Very disappointing!!!

    I hope Wagner wins as he is the most interesing person in the show.

  7. I think I must have been watching a different show to the judges because from where I was sitting Cher absolutely butchered her song. I have absolutely no idea why every week they keep praising that very unpleasant girl to the skies. Katie, yet again, also massacred her song.

    Once again Matt and Rebecca were the only ones to do justice to the songs, they were fabulous as usual.

  8. The panel should lay off Louis – he was only speaking the truth tonight. Katie does not have a rock voice and should not have sung ‘Saturday’ – no matter how insulted Cheryl looks at the suggestion. EJ songs really difficult to sing, so sorted the sheep from the goats – Matt, Cher and Rebecca stole the show.

  9. Matt stole the show? It was the worst of his performances.. I don’t like it and i’m very dissapointed!
    Rebeca was like always – boring boring. I don’t know but in my opinion she can’t use her legs to move.. Don’t like. Don’t like. Aiden and Cher were great. And OD was also OK ;) Y nadie mas

  10. Simon was noted for his honesty on American idol – now it seems its just about the money and which act will make the most for him not about who is the best singer since the best singer Treyc has already been unfairly booted off the show

  11. Yet again, X factor has proved what a waste of space it is using up on a sunday evening and surely if it was not for live performances such as Westlife and Take That, Simon Cowell is surely losing tv ratings!!!
    Be fair Simon will always stick by Cheryl and stastics show that after Katie being in the bottom 2 for a 5th week the girl has clearly the lowest votes!!!
    The show is a fix but then again you run the show so there is only one winner.

  14. p.s the only thing i would do on the show is be a judge and be honest !!!

  15. its supposed to be a talent show, so why is wagner still in when you cant understand a word he sings and good singers have left the show xfactor is becoming a joke

  16. yet another rigged show ,
    how can the public get there vot money back

    Comment by michael payne — Monday, 15 November, 2010 @ 16:58

  17. what is all the fuss about Katie or Cher or whatever happens backstage

    This Is A singing contest ! do not lose sight of that

    this week AIDEN or “JOHNNY ONE NOTE” was sent home
    listen again the works of Aiden no range no variation

    This Biggest mistry is “WAGNER” or “JOHNNY NO NOTE”
    is still in. he cannot hold a note nor can he sing think back to ” KOJAK” Telly Savalas and the song “if” so make up your mind….
    is it a singing contest or a popularity contest…..

    once Wagner has been sent packing then and only then will the true spirit of the contest begin.

    May the best voice prevail
