I rarely watch X Factor coz’ I am always an American Idol fan. But this season, everything changed. I just tried watching a few episodes and was impressed with the contestants and the judges. The judges that we always see fighting among each other are not there anymore. Finally, a singing contest which focuses on the contestants rather than the judges has finally arrived. 😉
The competition is still ongoing but it has already made me cry a lot of times. The over 25 contestants have more sob stories which add colors to the competition. I think their stories glued me to my seat while watching the show.
Kelly has the best contestants but she should have chosen Victoria over Rachel. Anyway, she is the mentor and no one has the right to question her decisions coz’ what might be good to us (viewers) might not be good for her. It’s subjective. Nevertheless i still love her final four ~ James, Jeffrey, Rachel and Lillie. This season is definitely the beast season of X-Factor USA.
Demi Lovato received a lot of criticism about her final four. A lot got disappointed about her choices but who are we to really judge her. She has her own opinions and she is the mentor. Whatever her reasons for choosing her final four, I’m just glad that a Pinoy is part of her team. Good luck Demi!
When Paulina let Tim Olstad go, I started doubting her capabilities as a mentor. And when she decided to get him back I got worried more. I don’t understand her. Letting go of Tim Olstad could have been her biggest mistake and getting him back made her indecisive. Now, I wonder how she is going to mentor the boys. She is hot but this is a singing contest, she needs more than her good looks to make her boys stand out.
Simon’s group is something that viewers should watch out for. Anything Simon does is something worth watching. hahaha Simon’s ability to identify good singers is exceptional plus he is competitive. He has proven his abilities a lot of times. This season’s winner might come from this group.
