Now I’m back in the train as I got really entertained and impressed with the pool of talent on tonight’s episode. There were clear stand outs and some potential artists that I think will do well in the course of the competition.
Paloma Faith scored a big one tonight!
Now on to the episode.
– Gorgeous! Look the version wasn’t at all perfect but for starter of the episode, Aliesha somehow set the bar high especially with a string of lackluster past episodes already. There is a delicate quality to her delivery that I like. Her tone is lovely and she put on some dynamics to it. Sure she needed more breathing and vocal support on parts, but this could still work. 7
– Alaric has surprised me especially with his look and style, I never expected that big old, classic voice he has in him. And he sang the hell of the song quite nice with his perfect notes. One thing though, the performance as it progress felt sleepy and tired. But then again this is unexpected, truly you should never judge a book by its cover. 6.5
– He begins with a solid case back up with a gorgeous tone. His transitions were nice and there is confidence in his delivery. He hit a couple of wobbly notes towards the end but I would take this more than half of the previous auditions from the previous episodes. 7
The First Cut Is The Deepest
– His voice is decent with some phrasing that sounded muddled in parts. The first half sounded nice but the performance itself didn’t really go anywhere. 6
The Lady Is A Tramp
– Not that bad. A bit old fashioned and it sounded too lounge-y for me. 5
Life On Mars
– Nerves. Nerves. Nerves. Her pitch was all over the place. She hit so many bad notes. This is miserable. 3
– Holy cow! Sia’s Chandelier is so difficult to sing – ask Sia herself and all those female artists who covered if – let alone in the male prospective. But Kevin just smashed it. There’s ease to his delivery that is gritty but still pop. His vocals sounded gorgeous. There is control in there. His phrasing sounded nice. This is really good! 8
