....allowing her to choose a 'reserve' -and she went for Jordan Gray, (the transgender woman, who no-one turned for ). I didn't think much of her, really, and was annoyed by all the 'we should have turned' rubbish once they saw her. She sounded poor, surely that's what matters?

Anyway <rant over> here are the teams and the song choices.

Cody Frost v Heather Cameron-Hayes
Song: Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2 U

Laura Begley v Tobias Robertson
Song: Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart

Charley B v Harry Fisher
Song: Michael Jackson – I Just Can't Stop Loving You

Aaron Hill v Faheem
Song: Stevie Wonder - Living For The City

Irene Alano-Rhodes v Lydia Lucy
Song: Aerosmith - Cryin'

Charley Blue v Scott & Vicky
Song: Little Mix - Black Magic

Jordan Gray v Theo Llewellyn
Song: Kate Bush - This Woman's Work

Dwaine Hayden v Aleisha Lobuczek
Song: Olly Murs - Kiss Me

Bradley Waterman v Rick Snowdon
Song: Etta James/Bo Diddley - Something's Got A Hold Of Me/I'm A Man

Brooklyn Richards v Tom Milner
Song: Amy Winehouse - Tears Dry On Their Own

Chloe Castro v Alaric Green
Song: Antony and the Johnsons - Hope There's Someone

Jolan v Efe Udugba
Song: The Jam - Beat Surrender

Battle round rules (for those unfamiliar) are- each judge pars up two of their acts. You can tell from the pairings who they prefer. And the song choice. The pairs then shout over each other, and the judges have to ditch one of their own acts. This act is then available to be stolen by another judge. There is an awkward tumbleweed silence when no-one chooses to steal.

So- it's on at 7pm, and I am sure it's on tomorrow (but don't quote me).

See y'all later.

Hello again..some music news..

I was having breakfast in a greasy spoon with dh ( don't ask) and the only reading options were thursdays Sun- or todays Sun! ( We go to all the best places) Headline news, Liam from One D and Cheryl (i thought really? dh sighed and said 'he has done well' , men eh!) and Lorraine Kelly seemed to hint that Dermot will get the x factor gig back.. Yay. I wonder if they bother though now they have bought the Voice for next season.
Good to see the Jam being sung and Joy division too.

Agree Raahh all that 'I should have turned' malarkey was shite.

And having a transwoman sing ^This woman's work'? Ooh, how very zeitgeisty.

TheSpottedZebra Sat 27-Feb-16 18:25:48

Ha! At Biffa Cole and a Wandie. The DM had a story that they having matching tattoos so... they're a couple? Erm, they are not.

Raahh Sat 27-Feb-16 18:36:37

zebra I agree about the song. Bet someone thought they were being really clever choosing that.

Plus it is one of my very favourite songs ( from a pretty naff film), so am sadthat it will be ruined.

The80sweregreat Sat 27-Feb-16 18:37:53

Yes, the matching tatts is a given then! I couldnt believe she is 10 years older than him. I fear its doomed, but im a cynical one.
I bet the French husband is spitting ( and hiring expensive lawyers)

Raahh Sat 27-Feb-16 18:40:55

And I saw that Liam has a rose tattoo, which the mail press are using as proof he is with Chezza, because of the rose tattoo she has in her arse.

It's funny - last week they were saying Mr and Mrs Fezza-Vezza were going on holiday together in a last ditch attempt to reconcile.

Raahh Sat 27-Feb-16 18:41:47

X-post grin

The80sweregreat Sat 27-Feb-16 18:50:24

Fezza vezza! I love Cheryl's various nicknames.
Cant think of a decent mash up of Liam n Cheryl - if it is true.
She is going for Katie Price's record in the ' how many men I can shag/ and or marry ' bit too.

SurferJet Sat 27-Feb-16 18:51:57

Woo hoo!

theredlion Sat 27-Feb-16 18:54:57

Evening everyone.
I never really bought into Chezza's Fezz-Vezz marriage, they didn't seem to be a convincing couple that could be because of the rumours about Chezza
I hope Dermot is coming back, I read this week that Louis will be back too.

80s I was especially mardy on the Brits thread but it was truly dire this year, how can all those performances from world class artists have been so bad? And I'm not fussed about the direction Rhianna is taking.

As to The Voice Love Will Tear Us Apart particularly strikes me as a poor song choice and difficult to do unless they sing it up an octave and whack some of the Mariah singing stuff into it. But I love Joy Division so I'm probably very biased.

Raahh Sat 27-Feb-16 18:57:33

Do they understand each other?Chezza and Liam? (and they don't go together, do they? Liarl??Cham?) The fact she didn't speak her husband's language was cited as on reason they split. So, definitely not a marriage based purely on looks) then? hmm

Raahh Sat 27-Feb-16 19:00:51

thered- the Brits were dire. Such a dull opening act, really poor live performances all around. And Ant and Dec were embarrassing. I'm glad Adele was sweary, it livened things up a bit. Ri-Ri was definitely miming too.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Sat 27-Feb-16 19:00:58

Alack and alas RL is getting in the way of my telly viewing tonight and I have to go out for dinner. Won't be the same watching it on catch up without all of you!

nancy75 Sat 27-Feb-16 19:01:45

Evening Ladies, missed the last few weeks but i'm ready for the battles (you know I'm hoping for at least one real fight!)

theredlion Sat 27-Feb-16 19:02:16

Let us know what you ate Hearts enjoy your night.

freshprincess Sat 27-Feb-16 19:02:17

Evening all. Finally the battle rounds, seemed like the auditions started last summer!

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Sat 27-Feb-16 19:02:38

If Dermie comes back to X Factor I will be vair happy indeed

Destinysdaughter Sat 27-Feb-16 19:02:44

Yo homies! grin

The80sweregreat Sat 27-Feb-16 19:03:08

Hi, the Brits was a bit of a mess really, agreed.
Sad to see Adele getting grief for sticking up for Keisha though, the money men have so much say. Sony are a power force, i remember George Michael and the whole debacle he had with them and this is much much more serious of course. Poor girl.
Love will tear us apart is a hard song to sing. They are not going easy on them.
The trailer showed Ricks looking rough..
Boys hat is bonkers. I like Palavers hair.

Destinysdaughter Sat 27-Feb-16 19:04:26

Pav has cut her hair, she looks about 12 now and BG looks like one of the Diddymen in that hat!

Getting the bitching in

nancy75 Sat 27-Feb-16 19:04:44

I see Paloma is still fucking annoying

freshprincess Sat 27-Feb-16 19:04:45

Paloma's hair is nice.
I love a headband, wish they would come back.
