MacDonald Brothers In Talks With Louis To See What The Future Holds

Brian from The MacDonald Brothers said today: “Louis is going to speak to us in the week, then we will have a better idea of what the future holds. We still don’t know if we will be offered a management deal with him but we know, if not, he’ll still point us in the right direction.”

“He’s become a great friend and we hope we can continue to work with him. We hope the public has time for us and that we can have a career. This is just the beginning. I don’t have a clue what the future holds but we will work hard and try our best to live up to people’s expectations.”

“For a first single, we would need something famous, that represented us as people.
We don’t know if we have that option yet but Louis will hopefully have some good news.”

The MacDonald Brothers Speak About Their Whole X Factor Experience

When asked about their whole X Factor experience, The MacDonald Brothers, Craig and Brian, said:

It has been fantastic. We’re disappointed that we didn’t get to the semi-final but we’ve loved every day of it.It’s just been great to work with all the vocal coaches and everyone on the show. Mark and Yvie (the vocal coaches) were almost crying when we got voted off. We had to tell them to stop!

In the last two weeks, Mark has really started to believe in us – he’s even started to wear kilts for us! I think he was quite disappointed to see us go home. But we’re just so thrilled to have got this far.

When asked about what the future holds for The MacDonald Brothers, they said:

We’ve got some TV interviews and press this week, then we’re going home and coming back on Friday for The Xtra Factor.

We don’t know after that but we’d love to record an album and play some fantastic gigs.

The MacDonald Brothers Fail to make the Semi-Final

The MacDonald Brothers X FactorTonight the X Factor judges had no power to eliminate, with the results being decided entirely by the public vote. The public did vote and the act that polled the lowest number of votes was The MacDonald Brothers, putting them out of The X Factor 2006. In his judges comments, Simon predicted that this was their last week.
On hearing the news, The MacDonald Brothers said: “This is the biggest thing ever in our lives. Thanks for the opportunity. Its been a great experience.”

As a judge, Louis is now out of the X Factor 2006, leaving Simon Cowell with two acts, Ray and Leona, and Sharon just with Ben in the semi-final. Just these three acts remain for next week.

The MacDonald Brothers Sing “Shang-A-Lang” As Their Second Song

Complete with tartan ties, The MacDonald Brothers said before performing their second song “Shang-A-Lang” on tonight’s X Factor, “Its great that we got to choose our own song. We chose one that we used to perform all the time as wedding singers, it gets people up on their feet.”

Simon: “I surrender. I dont think this has got anything to do with singing anymore. I’m gonna make a prediction, I think this is your final week.”

Sharon: “You made everyone here very happy.” [but not simon]

Louis: “people like you guys”
