So here are the song choices

Saara Aalto
No More Tears (Enough is Enough)

Honey G
Stayin’ Alive

Emily Middlemas
Wishing on a Star

Sam Lavery
I Will Survive

Ryan Lawrie
Play That Funky Music

Matt Terry
Best of My Love

5 After Midnight
Boogie Wonderland

I was right with my prediction that Emily would do Rose Royce- but I would have gone with 'Love don't live here any more' 'Wish upon a star' seems a bit up beat grin

Someone always does 'No more tears, and I always think 'but it's a DUET!!' - It's very Elfish though.

Ryan will be terrible, he really isn't funky, 5am will be karaoke, and I am already visualising a white shell suit for Honey G, like when Kenny Everett used to do piss take sketches of the Bee Gees. grin

I think Sam will struggle. Any one who sings a song like 'I will survive' always loses grin.

see y'all later.

(And Matt isn't doing the Eagles, which I got excited by, until I remembered it was disco week, but the Emotions song, which is disco)

Oh lordy... I love most of those songs. I am absolutely dreading HoneyG slaughtering 'Stayin Alive'. It will be a travesty and actually I think I could do it meself now, I know exactly what she will do with it and it ain't pretty!

Very predictable song choices, see you all later smile

I'll be watching tomorrow but am wondering if anything will be said about Honey G thinking she's the real deal as she's taken drugs but expect nothing will be said.

EmmaMacGill Sat 12-Nov-16 18:55:35

The only drugs Honey G is taking is HRT. Can't believe she's still on there!

Lilaclily Sat 12-Nov-16 18:57:19

Ryan shock hate that song he'll definitely go

Also hate wishing on a star, it's sooooo sloooowwwww

Gatekeeper Sat 12-Nov-16 18:58:32

Awww, I want Sam to win. She was at primary and secondary school with my kids. Even as an eight year old she had a belting voice

Goingtobeawesome Sat 12-Nov-16 18:58:55

She was taking cocaine

Twogoats Sat 12-Nov-16 19:01:46

Who has taken cocaine?

Raahh Sat 12-Nov-16 19:11:54

gatel like Sam, but they have given her some awful songs so far.

The80sweregreat Sat 12-Nov-16 19:18:07

Read today that Honey G has taken drugs in the past. Calls for her to be removed from the show!
(Maybe the G stands for 'gear '... )

Not keen on wishing on a star. Emily needs to do an up beat song for a change!
Anyway, hi all. Been a shitty day, PC is on the blink and that causes mega stress! Dh and i not talking.. Happy days..not.

wotlarks Sat 12-Nov-16 19:18:58

So to make it a rap version of Stayin Alive will Honey G be doing that awful NTrance version?

Roussette Sat 12-Nov-16 19:26:57

Eeeek 80s hope you can have a restful evening smile

Destinysdaughter Sat 12-Nov-16 19:29:05

80s sorry to hear that. Hope we can cheer you up on this thread! 😀

The80sweregreat Sat 12-Nov-16 19:30:00

Rou, ta. Dh is stressed out, rain all day. First world probs. just a pita!
Anyway, im sure the x factor folk will cheer me up..can but hope.

The80sweregreat Sat 12-Nov-16 19:32:48

Destiny, do you know any PC repairers? Lol..
Hope we're all well.
Wonder if honey will walk?
Will ryan be saved..again?
Do i care..?

NoisyBrain Sat 12-Nov-16 20:01:24

Hi all.

Cringing at the thought of Ryan trying to be funky. Best of My Love takes me back to the days when I would occasionally allow myself to be dragged onto the local leisure park to a cheesy chain bar (total torture for an indie kid like me). It's the kind of song wedding DJs play to get people on the dancefloor innit.

Raahh Sat 12-Nov-16 20:03:15

ooh, at least the Ottawa track got used somewhere.

TheFairyCaravan Sat 12-Nov-16 20:04:31


Let's see HoneyG murder Staying Alive!

Destinysdaughter Sat 12-Nov-16 20:04:39

80s sadly no, I have no IT guys in my harem ( but have a new addition, a builder! ) 😀

Love Disco, hope they don't fuck it up too much....

Raahh Sat 12-Nov-16 20:05:27

This is going to be really bad, isn't ?

Sister Sledge! Bit depleted in number, aren't they?

The80sweregreat Sat 12-Nov-16 20:05:47

No Nile!

Destinysdaughter Sat 12-Nov-16 20:06:09

OoohSister Sledge. Now that's how it's done! 😀😀😀

TheFairyCaravan Sat 12-Nov-16 20:06:22

God this is shit. Just as well they're not contestants they'd be going home!

The80sweregreat Sat 12-Nov-16 20:07:06

Destiny, go girl. Good for those jobs us girls cant have a go at!
