Week 5 of “The X Factor” is upon us, and this time the theme is“Club Classics”, a thee which once again seemed like it was a loosely followed one. Most acts chose songs one more mainstream dance-influenced pop and R&B songs as well as some old-school Motown-inspired tracks… It’s not “Big Band/Motown Week” just yet! Surprisingly, only Craig‘s song choice seemed the most obvious club classic tune out of them all.

Yay, Kelly's back!

And once again, it seems to be confirmed that there is a definite pattern forming here each week in who seems to be the most consitent with good performances and who continues to suck badlyMisha B bounced back well, Kitty is still going strong, Marcus is getting better and The Risk are doing well, while Frankie and Johnny are still lagging way behind in being anything interesting or good! So here’s the routine breakdown of each contestant’s performances:

Johnny

Johnny: He toned down on the outfit but not the rest was still crap.

Awful. Simply awful. Extremely bad vocals, especially on the Madonna part… But still, quite suprising to see him hit some low notes. And many low notes he did hit (metaphorically speaking)! At least he wasn’t wearing some god-ugly outfit.

Vocals: 0/5

Performance: 0/5

Overall: 0/10

Janet

Poor Janet was definitely way out of her comfort zone this week… even more so than she was in “Rock Week”. But at least she didn’t look like some hippy child from the middle ages and looked quite nice with trendy clothes and wavy, layered hair. Kudos to her for taking the risk and doing something surprising and different, but unfortunately, it wasn’t that great!

Vocals: 2/5

Performance: 2/5

Overall: 4/10

Craig

Despite having the only real obvious club classic song to sing this week, Craig was still just as unexciting as usual. Hardly any movement from his one spot in the middle of the stage, he said he had fun but it certainly didn’t look like it.

Vocals: 3/5

Performance: 1/5

Overall: 4/10

The Risk

This was pretty good and Derry‘s rapping (let’s face it, he’s probably the weakest singer in the group) made a nice change to the things they have done before and made what would have been an average performance, better.

Vocals: 4/5

Performance: 3/5

Overall: 7/10

Marcus

Marcus is obviously not that comfortable with all those women dancing so close to him...

Although the song Marcus sang was technically more ballroom floor filler than club floor filler, he still did a very good job of it. His voice is still great and much better (less shouty) than previous weeks, but his dancing is still rather non-existent.

Vocals: 4/5

Performance: 4/5

Overall: 8/10

Kitty

Kitty showed Johnny how a Madonna song should be sung without murdering it. She toned down the performance compared to previous weeks but still did well, despite being a little pitchy in places.

Vocals: 3/5

Performance: 4/5

Overall: 7/10

Frankie

Just a load of shit.

Vocals: 0/5

Performance: 0/5

Overall: 0/10

Misha B

Maybe a change of style for Misha is what will help save her this time?

She still had the funky hair (although not as funky as previous weeks), but Misha toned down the Grace Jones-style outfits and went for something more classic this time. She really worked the stage and did a good rendition of “Proud Mary”, even with some of her strange sounds she randomly makes when singing… Would have been nice to see her get back into putting her own unique urban, rapping twist into it again though!

Vocals: 4/5

Performance: 4/5

Overall: 8/10

Little Mix

Last week, the girls did rather well. This week, it was not as good. Individual vocals were not great and their harmonies were off. They also looked ridiculous randomly dressed in tin foil. Maybe the tore apart Johnny‘s outfit from week 1 and shared it out?

Vocals: 2/5

Performance: 3/5

Overall: 5/10

Who should go: Frankie, Johnny, Janet and/or Craig.

Who will go: Same as my predictions.
