The X Factor: Season 2, Episode 20:: Top Finalists Live Show #4

Nov 29, 2012

Last night on The X Factor the Top Finalists (now down to 8) perform live! Find out more in the Kidzworld Recap of the Live Show #4 which aired November 28th, 2012.

 

The Best

As usual Carly Rose Sonenclar absolutely killed her performance vocally singing a version of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" that start out slow and then jumps into a faster pace. L.A. said: “even your second best is better than everyone else’s best and Simon said that once more he didn't believe she was actually human! The only downside was not being able to see her face properly due to the stylists decision to put her in a hat.

Diamond White told Britney that she wanted to pick up the pace this week, even though she's been winning people over with her ballads, so she went with the Whitney Houston classic "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" and even though it wasn't as memorable as last week, she managed to stand out and make it her own.

Tate Stevens is possibly one of the most reliably good performers in the remaining contestants, and his version of Keith Urban's  "Somebody Like You" proved it, although Simon warned him that dancing wasn't his strong suit.

Needs Improvement

Paige Thomas too a real risk this week with the '80s hit "Never Gonna Give You Up" Rick Astley, revamped to have an early '90s flare and it really worked!  She even forewent her regular theatrical clothing for a stripped down leather jacket and ripped jeans look, and rocked it. As always Paige's vocals are simply not the strongest in the competition, but she looked and sounded great enough this week that the judges praised her.

One Fifth Harmony member was struck with the news this week that her grandfather had passed away, and the girls tried to help her get through it and went with  "Stronger" Kelly Clarkson. They sounded good, but L.A. felt that there wasn't enough harmonizing. 

The Worst

Emblem3 went with the Smashmouth version of "I'm a Believer," and everyone agreed (except Simon, of course) that what the boys really need to be doing is getting out there with instruments and showing everyone what they can do as a band.

Vino Alan  has shown in this competition that he can have an incredible voice for soul music, but his version of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" didn't get any lovin' feelings from Simon and the rest of the crew, it simply was not a great song choice for him.

Cece Frey overshot the mark with her version of "Lady Marmalade," and Simon told her to go and pack her suitcases because he believed she'd be going home.

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
