After last week, it was pretty obvious that Tamera’s time was up, which is a total shame, because I thought she rocked this week. I’m at the point where I don’t want anyone to go home because each contestant brings so much each week in terms of diversity of performance and song choice. Next week is going to be so tough.
This braided thing, yuck.
His terrible fro wig from when he was a child.
Go, Sam, GO! So freaking glam.
I WANT MY HAIR TO DO THIS. I am desperate for big hair.
Backpack/flannel shirt tied around the waist, Rough Copy. Even Sharon gave them shit for this.
Backstage, Caroline Flack had him empty out his backpack:
There was also a cell phone in it and Carmex, which is so perfect.
Tamera’s hypnotist, who supposedly helped her to remember her lyrics. Sadly, he could not prevent her from being sent home.
This guy who taught Nicky to drive (Louis gave him lessons for his birthday).
Nicky hit a cone.
But it appeared he could parallel park, which is more than I can say for 90% of the people who live in my town.
I hate my arms, too
I don’t know why I didn’t notice this about Sam before. She doesn’t wear sleeveless tops; instead, she always has on these netting sleeves.
Nicholas McDonald keeps getting critiques that he is not acting young enough so he watched some videos of music being made by his contemporaries.
Then during “Just the Way You Are” (GAG), he wore this heart print shirt:
Which brought me immediately back to this:
Harry’s worn that Burberry shirt twice so it had to be intentional to try to connect Nicky to a younger artist.
Tamera sang in a pile of trash.
This was from the X Factor musical, that I mentioned last week! Sam and Rough Copy went to something where the cast performed a few numbers.
Rough Copy thought it was hilarious!
And Sam met Harry Hill!
Here’s a gif of Luke smiling just because I can.
It was definitely NOT Luke’s version of that shitty Mumford & Sons song. After listening to the new One Direction album (shut UP, Katie), this band has had way too much influence on contemporary British music. I loved both of Tamera’s performances. She made Rihanna musical, with melodies and everything! And “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” was completely lovely.
I also really liked Nicholas McDonald’s version Take That’s “Greatest Day.” He showed so much personality! I felt so proud of him and it was super cute that he named Gary as his hero.
