X Factory 4

There was something missing in the performance tonight
You are a star
I had a wicked time doing it
He’s gone from pub performer to world class star
Week after week she’s come out and performed in every single way possible
I’m very very proud of myself
He’s got to find something to pick at
As always, worked hard, delivered a fantastic new version of the song
The Beatles were the ultimate boy band
They’ve gelled as a group
You so made it your own
You seemed a little bit nervous
I felt like I had to do it justice because I am from Liverpool
That was up there with your best performance
It was very emotional, I believed every word
That’s the type of music I love doing
You performed it very very well
You’re likeable, you’re loveable, I want to squeeze you and hold you tight
I’m glad I proved myself this week
It was the worse version of a Beatles song I’ve ever heard in my life
Not everybody loves you but you have a big fan base out there
Only Louis likes me
Lyrically, it was absolute genius
I’m hoping that the people at home really give me a chance at this

Weekend Walk 20 – Pycombe to Woodingdean

Unlike the WNW-ESE direction of the previous South Downs Way walks, this one took a turn south half way through, roaming over the downs towards the ridge between Brighton and Lewes. The walk took in the Clayton Windmills, Ditchling Beacon, Black Cap hill, across the A27 and railway. I then cut west to get to Woodingdean where it was easy to get back to the car via Brighton.

The X Factory 3

That was such a wrong song choice.
I was happy with my performance, you know, maybe the song wasn’t so great.
I don’t think vocally it’s the best you’ve sounded.
Having said that, you have great presence.
It’s not the same as the original, it’s my version but it’s not so far away that people won’t recognise it.
Rocked it.
It was a little bit pub-singerish but because you have a heart, it worked.
I thought I put on a hell of a performance tonight.
She’s living her dream. I want to change her life.
I admire your resilience.
I hope I did enough.
You’re hanging on by a thread.
You keep getting stronger and stronger every week.
It felt like you were singing that to me and it was just spot on.
I really had fun with that.
After that you are 100% back in the game.
I’m privileged to be working alongside you.
I was on a proper downer today but now I’m like on top of the moon.
I’ve seen some strange things in my life but that tops it.
You remind me of a young Elton John.
I genuinely believe a group are going to win this competition.
It felt absolutely brilliant.
The boys are leading the pack and that makes it exciting.
That was so damn classy.
It’s a show like this that will give you the chance.
You’ve gotta stay grounded.
I love the fact that she doesn’t know how good she is.
