Will Christina Parie deliver another Number 1 performance this week? It’s the Number 1s week theme of the X- Factor Australia 2011. Last week, Christina soared to top as she received the first standing ovation from the four judges Guy Sebastian, Mel B, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, and Ronan Keating with her Impressive Performance of Zombie by the Cranberries. A huge pressure for this young Sydney teenager coming in for this week!
Declan Sykes had struggled and had a hard with the judges last week of his rendition of Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. It didn’t get him to the bottom two though. Will he be able to rebound this week? For live show 5 of the X-Factor Australia 2011, which is the Number 1s week, Declan sings Forever Young by Youth Group.
Johnny Ruffo took a massive song this week for the Number 1s week theme of the X- Factor Australia 2011. He sang Justin Timberlake’s What Goes Around last night. It was probably his toughest decision to take such song because it really exposed him of his vocal capability. With the judges being more careful of what they say, Johnny received mixed comments from the four judges.
Week in and week out Reece Mastin continues to impress Australian audience. For this week’s theme “Number 1s” songs or artists, Reece sang Maroon 5’s She Will Be Loved. Accompanied by a violinist on the stage, Reece show off another side of his vocal ability. Do you think this performance can hit or be at par with number 1 hits? You’ll be the judge. Reece is definitely one of the judges favorites. As expected, he received all positive comments.
It’s a bit odd to sing a song that you think won’t show what kind of artist you are. That is no exception to “Country Boy” Mitchell Callaway. Thousands of Number 1 Billboard Country Songs to choose from like those from Garth Brooks, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Keith Urban, etc. but Natalie picked Rolling Stones’ Satisfaction for Mitchell. A poor song choice in a very though competition like X- Factor Australia 2011 can potentially send home a contestant no matter how vocally perfect he/she would do on that song.
Isn’t this Ironic? Reece Mastin doing another girl’s song! He picked Ironic by Alanis Morissette. You can love it or hate it. Reece has a wonderful voice and no question about that. Doing a makeover of a wonderful song is like a double-edged sword. It can be dreadful or can raise up an artist overnight.
The fourth live show of the X- Factor Australia 2011 last night started of with Johnny Ruffo sing Meatloaf’s I Would Do Anything for Love. Again, it’s basically a song and dance style for Johnny. Mel B thought Meatloaf won’t be impressed with that performance but despite that, it was a solid performance. Ronan Keating didn’t like it. Natalie Bassingthwaighte said Johnny did a good job and his vocal is more solid than the past. Guy Sebastian understandably being Johnny’s mentor added that it suited Johnny perfectly otherwise it will only be a karaoke performance.
