After last night’s record rating show, one more act will be told they aren’t hot right now and will be exiting the show. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Moorhouse and Cassie Henderson in the bottom two tonight but we shall see.
After a look back at last night where only two of the acts really delivered an actual live performance, Dom asks the judges who they think has developed the most on The X Factor stage. Ruby Frost backs Jackie Thomas. Stan Walker pimps Anna Wilson and Moorhouse. Mel Blatt backs her boys Moorhouse while Daniel Bedingfield thinks Whenua Patuwai has made the biggest positive moves. I would have said Tom Batchelor prior to last night and Anna Wilson if she maintained consistency and stopped flitting from theme to theme.
Sons of Zion perform Superman and prove why no one did any of their songs last night.
It’s results time and this how the acts are called who are returning to next week’s show.
So Gap5 and Anna Wilson, the only two acts who actually performed last night find themselves in the bottom two. It is all of a sudden very clear that New Zealanders have no idea about what makes someone worth voting for and tonight we’re going to lose an act that doesn’t deserve to be leaving this week.
My pick is Anna Wilson will be leaving. Mel and Daniel will vote to keep Gap5. Stan will vote for Anna. Ruby will either vote to keep Gap5 or send it to deadlock which I suspect will see Anna leave with the lowest number of votes.
Before we get to the final result, Jamie McDelle performs Life in Sunshine. She’s just another bland kiwi performer who sings pop but fails at the first hurdle.
Gap5 bring back their swagger with a mashup of No Diggity and Thriftshop. Another excellent performance.
Anna Wilson on the other hand steps back to boredom with Imagine. A nice vocal but it’s a mile from where she was last night. Terrible song choice, especially considering what she was wearing was totally disconnected from the song. Bye bye Anna.
Mel Blatt votes to send home Anna.
Stan votes to send home Gap5.
Ruby votes to send home Anna.
Daniel votes to send home Anna so it’s goodbye.
Sadly for Stan, he’s got no more acts left. He’s offering to assist Mel as she needs help.
Good on Stan for telling us he’s at least giving Anna a spot during his tour.
Dom rounds out the show with a nice mock of the movie coming up next. Beautiful.
Next week’s theme is Hollywood week where the acts will sing songs from the movies.
I am becoming increasingly disappointed with this show. It had huge potential but that potential is fading fast.
