X FACTOR 1/11- It's HALLOWE'EN week! And instant evictions. Be very afraid.(733 Posts)
I am out tonight
My sister is having a Hallowe'en party. I don't really want to go. <misery> but the dc do, so I will just have to suck it up. And drink.
Here is the the extremely dubious, yet entirely predictable, song list.
Tonight’s X Factor 2014 songlist – Week 4
Relight My Fire (by Take That)
Bleeding Love (by Leona Lewis)
Bat Out Of Hell (by Meatloaf)
Dark Horse (by Katy Perry)
Crazy (by Gnarls Barkley)
Only The Young
The Monster Mash (by Bobby Pickett)
Everybody (by Backstreet Boys)
Highway to Hell (by AC/DC)
Thriller (by Michael Jackson)
Mad World (by Tears For Fears)
Music of The Night (from Phantom of The Opera)
I feel most sorry for OTY- as clearly Louis hates them. Why is he turning them into a shit novelty act, poor kids?
Stevi- well there are no words.
Clunt must go. Really, he must.
At least I will be able to come home and whizz through the whole thing is 5 minutes. But I will miss y'all.
Oh- and there will be an instant eviction of an act tonight- as Simon was pissed off at how rubbish the sing -off was last week.
not at all planned all along, oh no
Oh and the MastrB8'rs have been rocked by revelations that one of them has been taking drugs.
And then there were 7?
OTY singing monster mash
Some random song choices here!
Only the young have their own videos on YouTube, monster mash is one that they've put on there themselves.
.. just looked at the list again for Hallowee'n special , when was Everybody a spooky song?
Oh dear- no hope for OTY then!
And 'Everybody' is only spooky, due to the video featuring a dance very similar in style to the Thriller video. Yup, that tenuous.
Bit like 'Mad World' which was given the slow treatment and used in Donnie Darko - but apparently Clunt is performing the faster Tears For Fears original. so makes no sense at all.
I'm home tonight but with 12 people for dinner I don't think DH would be very impressed if I slunk off to watch XF with you lot
Raahh like you I will whizz through the recording once I get rid of them all!
I really like OTY but they are not being done any favours by their song choices.
My top 6 are Pugsy (Andrea), Lauren (don't remember her nickname), Ben (ditto), Fishy (Lola), NotFlobbie (Paul) and Fleur who has really grown on me.
Instant eviction has to be MastRb8 or Clunt. Stevi or Jack I could handle for another week.
No-on will do Mad World as well as Aidan Grimshaw.....I loved him singing that.
Thank you, will check out the video for Backstreet Boys. Predict oty for chop this week...
I have pinched this from Digital Spy-it's quite funny. Although we probably thought of all the funniest ones one here.
I especially like tv themes- 'Hodor'
1. Sing Your Name Week
Inspired by the brilliantly named Ben Haenow, who could perform Crowded House's 'Don't Dream It's Over' ("HEY NOW! HEY NOW!"), everyone has to sing a song connected to their name.
Fleur East can tackle anything by East 17, Stereo Kicks can tackle a Stereophonics vs Rizzle Kicks mash-up, Lola Saunders can tackle the Kinks classic, Jack Walton could attempt 'Hit The Road Jack' and Only The Young could murder 'We Are Young'.
2. Simon Cowell Week
They're only allowed to sings songs by acts that Simon Cowell launched. No, we're not talking about Leona and One Direction. We mean vintage Cowell. We're talking Curiosity Killed the Cat, 5ive, Robson & Jerome, Ultimate Kaos, Teletubbies, Zig and Zag, and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
We're already envisaging a brilliant version of 'Teletubbies Say Eh-oh!' from Andrea Faustini.
3. Girls Aloud Week
Simon Cowell promised this would happen on the show about six years ago. He failed to keep that promise. We will continue to remind him about it until we get Paul Akister shaking his booty to 'Love Machine'.
4. Spice Girls Week
Not only would this be a great selection of tunes, it would also be an excuse to get all the girls together in the X Factor studios - well, Geri is probably bang up for it anyway.
We'd be willing to include solo material as well, just so Fleur East could tackle 'Out Of Your Mind' (including the Dane Bowers bits) and Andrea could get his chops around 'Mi Chico Latino'.
5. John Lewis Advert Week
Just in time for Christmas, the last 5 acts are only allowed to tackle sub-Live Lounge, sub-Snow Patrol-esque covers of classic pop songs in the style of a patronising indie band.
The acts can pick from 'Somewhere Only We Know', 'The Power Of Love', 'Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want' and 'Your Song'.
6. Hip-Hop Week
Hey, it's 2014. Maybe we're beyond going crazy over one act inserting a minor rap break-down. But maybe we're being crazy. Hey, why would you want a week dedicated to one of the biggest music genres of the last 30 years?
7. Bez Week
Acts can either sing Happy Mondays/Black Grape songs or take the wildcard option and 'do a Bez' for the week. They get a week of maraca shaking training from Madchester's finest and then it's just up to them and some baggy styling from Brian Friedman if they want to impress the public.
8. Taylor Swift Week
We've heard she's quite popular right now.
9. TV Theme Tunes Week
Stereo Kicks do Dad's Army. Lola Saunders warbling out the theme from Minder. Paul Akister getting stuck into Fresh Prince of Bel Air. And Stevi Ritchie could just bellow along with the Game of Thrones tune, occasionally shouting "Hodor" at random intervals.
10. Britpop Week
The time has come for Shed Seven, The Bluetones, Echobelly, Dodgy and The Auteurs to be brought back into the mainstream. 20 years on from the release of Parklife, let's bring the trumpet-tooting, guitar-slugging, mockney knees-up to Saturday nights in 2014.
Chumbawumba and The Longpigs can be Sunday's guest performers and 'Chasing Rainbows' could be this year's Winner's Single.
11. UK Garage Week
Bound for the bound, bound for the reload! Can we get a re-re-wind to 2001? Craig David can come on as a guest judge. Someone give the Artful Dodger a call.
12. Ant & Dec Week
Surely it's only a matter of time before the Geordie duo infiltrate the only ITV hit that they haven't got their hands on. Dermot could be given a Saturday night off and the remaining contestants could tackle the greatest hits of PJ and Duncan.
13. Nadine Coyle Week
Just for the look on Cheryl's face.
14. Steve Brookstein Week
Just for the look on Simon Cowell's face.
15. Shoegazing Week.
To celebrate the tumbling ratings, the show could go fully introverted and niche, turning up the guitar feedback to 11. Let's see Stevi Richie try his hand at Slowdive and Only The Young give us their best version of Ride.
16. Smiths Week
'This Joke Isn't Funny Anymore' (perfect for Louis Walsh), 'Bigmouth Strikes Again' (Hello Mel B), 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now' (Cheryl when she has to sit next to Simon) and 'Panic' (for Simon when he sees the latest ratings) all seem like very apt songs for the current series.
17. UKIP Calypso Week
OK, we're just being ridiculous now.
I like it.
I said to DH today "I would like a Dinsey week" - then asked him.to shoot.me.
Oh, ours were better. though i think we also had TV Theme Tunes week.
We also suggested Cuntree week, Musical Theatre week, Football Songs week, Haiku week (mercifully short), Chas'n'Dave week, Children's TV week (lobbying hard for the Byker Grove tune and Just Say No To Strangers) and Ad Jingles week. ALL of which would be better than anything we've seen so far.
Marking place for later.
It's going to be even more terrible than normal, isn't it?
Chas and Dave week would be tremendous! Tonight, on the other hand, sounds poo.
I do not think Relight my Fire is scary.
Actually, Lulu. Fair enough.
<rushes in> I'm here I'm here! Did I miss anything?!
Good god is that a plether shirt?!
