Stacey Solomon sings The Way You Make Me Feel on X Factor Semi Finals week.
Louis: “Stacey, you’re in the semi-final and I’ve been a big fan of yours all along. However, I wasn’t crazy about the song. I don’t think the song really suited you. With you it’s all about the voice and I think the whole production took away from the voice. Sorry, I thought it was the wrong song.”
Cheryl: “I disagree, I thought it was absolutely fantastic. Talk about yummy mummy! You look hot, you look the best I’ve ever seen you, and it was lovely to see you moving around the stage and performing for once. I really enjoyed it.”
Simon: “Well, it was fine, it just wasn’t you. It was gimmicky, silly, and with all the Michael Jackson songs in the world which you could have really, really nailed, for me that became too cabaret. You were thinking too much about getting from there to there, and what it did was it affected your vocals. You had too much to concentrate on. So I wouldn’t have done that, but the good news for you is you’ve got two songs tonight and I know you’ve got a fantastic second song. But that wasn’t the best performance I’ve heard from you.”
Dannii: “We’ve taken everything on board the judges have said for the whole series and put it together so you weren’t a ‘candle singing in the middle of the stage’. It doesn’t look like cabaret, this look suits you and you did it well. If you were an artist out there putting on a concert, you would be doing this. Any other singer would put on a show. If anything is affecting her vocals, it’s that she’s got infected teeth, that’s the only thing affecting her vocals.”
