X Factor Update – Semi Final

Published on December 8, 2008 under Celebrity Gossip

Another day, another elimination! This week saw the contestants choose their own songs to sing. This would also be their last chance to wow the public with their talent, in order to secure a place in next week’s final.

Eoghan opened this week’s show with his version of Busted’s ‘Year 3000’, which was loved by Cheryl Cole who said “I enjoyed that. This is where you sit best as an artist.” Dannii Minogue also described it as “amazing.” He later went on to sing his favourite song, ‘Does Your Mother Know’, which was enjoyed by 3 of the judges, but not Dannii.

Diana Vickers performed a well-loved version of Avril Lavigne’s ‘Girlfriend’ on top of a moped. She then sang Dido’s ‘White Flag’, which was one of her favourite songs, but was not a favourite with Simon Cowell, because the song did not have a ‘big moment’ in it.

Another two outstanding performances from Alexandra this week who performed ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ and ‘Unbreak My Heart’. Both performances impressed the judges, and words like “incredible”, “fierce” and “sexy”. Her performances go from strength to strength each week.

The JLS boys sang ‘Umberlla’ and ‘I’m already There’ this week. Their first performance include an impressive dance routine, which we hadn’t previous seen from the group. Simon Cowell described this performance as “the most important” of their lives. Dannii also thought it was “the best” performance ever seen on the show by a group.

Unfortunately, however, there were many many tears during the results show as Diani Vickers failed to secure her position in the final. The 17-year-old gained the fewest votes, and once her named was announced, her close friend, Eoghan, broke down in tears. She recieved a great reference from her mentor though, as Cheryl Cole went on to say “I’m really proud of her and I’ve absolutely loved every minute of working with her.”
