The X Factor UK- Live Show 1

9 Oct

The first live show of this years X Factor went underway last night, and unsurprisingly it was one of the best shows in X Factor history.

The four judges seemed perfectly at home on the panel and as the show progressed the tension and competitive nature of the stars grew.

Each of the judges four acts performed one track and rather controversialy the judges will choose which one of their acts they think should leave the competition on tonight’s show rather than it being down to the public vote.

In general the standard of performances last night were high.

In the boys category, the weakest performances came from Frankie Cocozza, who not only had the weakest vocals out of the boys, he also seemed to let nerves get to him- perhaps it was the eye liner that made him feel uncomfortable. Marcus Collins and James Michael both gave strong performances and received praise from most of the judges. However, the stand out boy had to be Craig Colton, who sang an amazing rendition of Christina Perri’s ‘Jar Of Hearts’. Watch and listen to his performance below…

For the girls, again the four acts pulled off strong performances for a first live show. Amelia Lily kicked off the show with a confident performance, however by the time Misha and Janet had sung, her performance was somewhat forgettable. Personally, Janet had the edge over Misha, with her chilling rendition of Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’. Listen to it below….

The groups are traditionally a weak category, but this year Tulisa has done a fairly good job. Rhythmix started it off for the girls, with a great performance of Nicki Minaj’s ‘Superbass’ and the girls really looked like a young current band, the only negative was that the girls rapping was slightly weak. 2 shoes, pulled out a solid performance, but boyband Nu Vibe failed to pull off the vocals or dance moves to their song. The group which stood out had to be The Risk with their performance of Plan B’s ‘She Said’, watch that performance below…

Finally the over 25’s as predicted were the weaker of the four categories with Johnny, Jonjo and Kitty all giving rather underwhelming performances. Luckily for Louis, Sami Brookes pulled off arguably the best vocals of the night. Watch her performance below…


The show will be back tonight, with the judges making the difficult decision as to who was the weakest act from their group and should leave the competition.

    I actually liked Frankie… although admittedly he is not stron vocally i like the whole package he is selling! And the song choice was PERFECT!
    Nisha was also great and i loved the twist she gave to the song! Her perfomance was unforgettable! loved it!
    I totally agree that the Risk stood out from the other groups! I adored them! Tulisa did a great job!
    Craig’s and Janet’s performances left me breathless! The best!
