"The X Factor" UK 2015 quarter-final act is over and now it's time to know who goes home and who enters next week's semi-finals.
The remaining top five quarter-finalists performed two songs each, one chosen by the viewers (Jukebox) and the other chosen by their respective coach (Judges' Choice)on Saturday. It was a mixture of some stunning performances and some disappointments but at the end of the day it's the audience who will choose the semi-finalists.
Here is recap of their live quarter-final performances:
Rita Ora's GIRLS
Louisa Johnson opened the night with "Love Yourself" by Justin Bieber (Jukebox). It was certainly not her best performance and it was a decent one. She was struggling a bit with her voice and Simon Cowell thought she pushed a little too much. She admitted that she was having a sore throat and that might have affected her voice.
She closed the night with "Jealous" by Labrinth (Judges' Choice). It was a much better performance than her first song and she got a standing ovation from Rita and Simon. One could hear breaks in her voice especially in the high notes but it was a decent performance.
Lauren Murray's first song was "Firestone" by Kygo ft Conrad Sewell (Jukebox. She seemed to be uncomfortable with the song but it was a good performance. Simon thought it's a wrong song choice but Nick said that she had just proved she could sing any song.
Her second song was "You Don't Own Me" by Lesley Gore (Judges' Choice). It was a beautiful rendition and Simon thought "this was in a different league" and described it as "sensational" performance that has put her back in the game. Cheryl found different tone in your voice beautiful.
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's GROUPS
4th Impact kicked off with "I'll Be There" by Jackson 5 (Jukebox). Simon suggested last week that they should show more as individuals and they literally took his advice this week. They didn't dance and move around this time but concentrated on their voice and nailed it. Almira's whistle note which judges described as dolphin note was beautiful. As expected, Simon showered praises and said it was a completely different performance.
The group's second song was a mash-up of "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea / "Rich Girl" by Gwen Stefani (Judges' Choice). It was an energetic performance with right dose of rap, dance and even used Simon's name. They got standing ovation from Simon and their mentor Cheryl. Rita said she was a fan of their voice though she didn't quite like use of boxes.
Reggie n Bollie took on the song "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" by Silento (Jukebox). They were not impressive vocally but got the audience on their feet. It was a energetic performance and Cheryl joined them on stage for a shake.
Their second song was "Dynamite' by Taio Cruz (Judges' Choice). Some may find it a little boring as they seemed to be performing similar type of songs every week with nothing much boast of in terms of voice but it didn't matter as crowd love them. Simon praised them for their act.
Nick Grimshaw's BOYS
Che Chesterman kicked off with "Hello" by Adele (Jukebox). It was certainly not his moment and he was off on several occasions. He even forgot lyrics. Simon thought it should have been a fantastic but it wasn't.
His second song was "Try A Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding (Judges' Choice). He put up a beautiful performance after mediocre first performance. He received a standing ovation from all the judges. Rita thought he had literally come back and Cheryl said he had smashed vocals to pieces.
Two of the acts in bottom two (with least public votes) will perform again tonight for survival. And looking at the live performances on Saturday, it looks like Che Chesterman, who was in bottom two last week, will be in danger again. He could be joined by Louisa Johnson or Reggie n Bollie if one is to go strictly by their last performances but it is the audience who will decide the fate of the acts. Anybody can be eliminated tonight.
