Song Choices for X Factor Semi Final

It’s ‘Club Classics’ week on the semi-final of the X Factor, although you can expect that this will be interpreted as liberally as the themes usually are on the X Factor.

Mary – Never can say goodbye and The Way We Were/Try To Remember
Cher – Nothin’ On You and Love The Way You Lie
1 Direction – Only Girl (In The World) and Chasing Cars
Rebecca – Show Me Love and Amazing Grace
Matt – She’s Always A Woman and You Got The Love

  4. I am furious that cher has a cheryl number. Further evidence that the programme is weighted in Cheryl’s favour. Fix Fix Fix.

    I mean why not give rebecca the advantage of singing ‘fight’ or even more fairly, someone not in her category.

  5. If you look at all the contestants only two can realistically win it, Rebecca or Matt, they are in a completely different league to everyone else. Either of them steals the show nearly every week! I think One Direction/Cher and Mary will go tomorrow if it’s another double elimination! If not, there will be 4 in the final which is too many for a final! Cher/Mary/One Direction are 3 great contestants but Matt and Rebecca have the edge in my opinion!

    Verdict for final:

    Cher/One Direction (Can’t make my mind up or if there’s 4 in the final, which is unlikely!)

  7. I would like to hear what the judges are saying about the contestants. The noise from the audience is shocking. They should not be allowed to shout so loud and for so long. It is very very annoying.

  8. Simon confirmed on Xtra Factor that Cher and Cheryl will be doing a duet together – is he confirming that Cher has got a contract whether she wins or not. Didnt think he should have said that.

  10. Can I just comment on Rebecca Ferguson. She has demonstrated through this whole competition such professionalism, but most of all Humility. You are an absolute Star Rebecca, a wonderful Mother and a Credit to all Mothers all over the world. You deserve to win this, Your version of Amazing Grace brought a tear to my eye. You are unique and may Grace go with you.

  11. I agree completely with Gerard. As much as I like Matt’s voice and One Direction have got better each week, Rebecca is so incredibly talented. Along with all the things that Gerard states, she has the most wonderfully powerful and emotive voice, no matter what she sings. Rebecca swept the board on every level in the semi’s and should win the competition!! Cheryl could perhaps show a little more enthusiasm to Rebecca, as once Cher is booted out of the final first by the public vote, Cheryl will only be left with the eventual winner. Come on Rebecca – can’t wait for your album!!

  12. Re: Hatty #8 – How is that going to work then? Will they both be miming or will Cher sing while Cheryl mimes? Should be interesting!!
    Rebecca to WIN!!!!!
