This week, the theme on The X Factor was ‘Diva Week’, and with the celebrity guest being none other than Whitney Houston, it was most certainly applicable.
Joe McElderry chose to sing Whitney Houston’s massive smash hit, Where Do Broken Hearts Go? Although all three judges gave brilliant comments to our Joseph McElderry, the messages i was reading on Twitter from the fans seemed to be fairly negative.
I personally thought he did a cracking job of Whitney’s hit, keeping in mind he is a lad trying to sing a female song. And a huge song at that!!
I still feel The X Factor judges haven’t really challenged his vocal range, but perhaps we’ll see more in coming weeks.
Joe McElderry – X Factor Week 2 Performance
Dannii Minogue: “You nailed it in the auditions… blah blah blah.“
Simon Cowell: “It pains me to say this, but that was note perfect! You take on one of the big Whitney songs. The only criticism I’m going to give is that you’ve gotta raise your shoulders a bit and you’ve gotta learn how to perform. But great vocal.“
Cheryl Cole: “That was absolutely beautiful.“
