On this weeks X Factor, each contestant had to sing two songs, one by Elton John, one by Take That. One song had to be a ballad, while the other a little more up-tempo, to show the public that you had the vocal abilities, and the ability to put on a good performance with a production, dancers etc.
A lot of people criticised Lloyd Daniels – A Million Love Songs Performance – including me – but a lot of people are saying Lloyd’s second performance of the evening was much better.
I completely disagree. Lloyd had to sing I’m Still Standing, a massive hit by Elton John, and it was terrible. One thing i will agree on, is the song choice. Lloyd Daniels has a very soft voice, with a certain tone. I’m Still Standing was a good match, but that’s as far as it goes. His vocal was flat all the way through in my opinion.
As i said in my original post, Lloyd Daniels is in real trouble on The X Factor this week, and I think the predictions that he’ll be given the boot tomorrow could prove correct. I would go as far as to say that his vocal is ‘almost’ as bad as Jedward’s was.
How did you find Lloyd Daniels’ – I’m Still Standing Performance? Leave your comments below…
Louis: “Round 1, you kind of won me over. It just didn’t look like you were having a good time, and it was just a bit karaoke for me.“
Dannii: “Lyrically, you’re still proving a point there. A fantastic production. Vocally, it is still shaky, but better than the first song.“
Simon: “I thought that was a silly song choice. That retro routine didn’t suit you, it didn’t suit the song. It was like something from an amateur dramatics production. Cheryl, you are a pop star, you understand what’s right for the artist, what’s right for the song.“
Cheryl: “I’m very very proud of you for coming out and delivering each week after you get such hard criticism.“
