Smart ladies love dumb TV, X Factor UK recap, live show seven

| 0 comments

If the producers wanted Stevi Ritchie to be the first artist eliminated Saturday, he should have gone 1st or 2nd instead of next to last. This left the door wide open for Only the Young, who performed third, to be sent home with the lowest number of votes. I will really miss their energy, but it does seem like they are better off. They are a very headstrong bunch and probably don’t need Louis or the costumers mucking up their performances!

Sunday, Stevi was finally eliminated for this performance:

He’s not even close to being on key.

I will miss his personality but not the fact that I fast forwarded through most of his songs.

Also, Cheryl wore this Saturday, and looked amazing:

She did it again!

Naughty Mel B!

How WILL we remember their names?

Louis went up to people at an ice skating rink, pointed to some members of Stereo Kicks and asked if the everyday citizens knew their names. They all did better than I would, except I know which one is Tom (the cute one).

Each one was given a “_____ Kick” name (like the Spice Girls) with a corresponding graphic. Hopefully this will help me!

We are family

I am so obsessed with Fleur (and apparently the UK is too, she is favorited to win) so I LOVED that she was able to bring out her friends and family during “I’m Every Woman.” What a sweet tribute!

I love that she told all of them together!

All her friends and family wore black and stood in a semi circle at the front of the stage, clapping and moving.

A day in the life of Stevi Ritchie

This was one of my favorite intros ever for one reason. I will also mention he wore at least five different shirts in this segment.

COFFEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

He works out.

Movie I want to see

Ben Haenow and his friends driving around in a van and making very British jokes. I’m shocked Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have not thought of this first! Too bad they couldn’t have somehow prevented him from singing “I Will Always Love You.”

The writing on the wall

It was clear to me that Only the Young were going home soon when they visited a toy store and performed. I don’t think they want to be a kids’ act!

A few notes about Lauren

She, like Only the Young, did a rerun song. She did have the good sense to switch it up a lot from her previous performance (though I wouldn’t call it a “twist,” just “go into the normal speed of the song”) and mention that in the intro.

Is Cheryl really that teeny? Via.

What the fuck is that flap at her waist?

Upon closer inspection, it is a black shirt that has been TAKEN THROUGH HER JEANS' BELT LOOPS and tied.

It was sweet that her brother danced with her, plus he is a legitimately good dancer. Simon suggested he try out for Britain's Got Talent.

Favorite performance

I am not a huge fan of “I’m Every Woman” but Fleur rocked it. I wish she would have done something with the song but she should just record an album of R&B and hip hop so the UK can push someone other than Jessie J on America. WE DON’T LIKE HER.

Next week: everyone does two songs, one of which was chosen by viewers! I will be so sad when this season is over.
