X Factor: And Then There's Cher!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaX FactorCher Lloyd

We love her, but as the shows go on, we honestly don't know if Cher Lloyd has what it takes to win X Factor.

But that's okay. She doesn't have to win. She's already won!

Cher is the most CURRENT and commercially viable of all the acts!

Forget about X Factor. We are more excited to see what she does AFTER the show!

As for her performance on Saturday night… The imaging is spot-on! We loved her physicality and her stage presence! She worked that stage and sounded great!


The production was a bit distracting. The focus should be on her.

And, she pulled off the rapping, but we truly hope she uses it sparingly!

Check out Cher's performance of Just Be Good To Me (above).

    I loved it, she did great. It was kinda old school Paula Abdul-ish. She needs to work on her vocal, sing a little more and pack a real punch. She can hit powerful notes and she needs to really work on carrying that. The presentation was great, she really did own the stage.

  2. 2

    Wow, I want this on my ipod. Why can't they show this in the States??

  3. 3

    Am I the only one who thinks she's really weak??? Her voice sounds just so amateur and shaky. I dunno why everyone loves her

  4. 4

    She is good, but not THAT good :S

  5. 5

    Doesn't england already have a girl who raps? Lady Sovereign ring a bell?

  6. 6

    I agree! Cher's a total winner! There's a move in Brit hiphop/rap that's completely removed from american gangsta rap, and Cher so fits it!! She new, fresh, gorgeous and can work her stage - and she's only 17!! Like you said, forget x-factor - she's a winner no matter what!

  7. 7

    Yes!! Cher's the winner, whether the public votes for her or not! She's young, fresh, gorgeous and brings a new sound so desperately needed at X-Factor!! She owned that stage - she's a STAR!!

  8. 8

    This was her best performance yet! wayyyyy better than the coldplay one, and the rapping was actually perfect. Love her!

    Re: AllaFrost.com – no i agree with you. she's okay, but she's not amazing

  10. 10

    She's way over rated. Her singing is horrible and weak. All that praise will give her a big ego and set her up for major disappointment. She can only go so far singing and rapping all her songs. However, she does have stage presence so maybe there's hope for her afterall.

  11. 11

    WTF? Why so much attention for a show that doesnt even air in the US? This is a British show and as far as I know no one watches it here.

  12. 12

    I'm sorry but I really don't get her singing style. I really doubt if she gets a singing contract if she loses X Factor. Mostly the first and secomf place winners are the only ones offered contracts. I liked Rebecca and TreyC much better but that's just my opinion.

    Re: Big-package – Because U Idiot We Can Go On This Website In The Uk! And We Find It Intresting Unlike Ur Rubbish Talent Show I refuse To Watch Them As They Give Me A Head Ache

  14. 14

    Re: AllaFrost.com – no i'm confused too. i think she's terrible.

  15. 15

    Re: Big-package – It's not just Americans who go on this site you ignorant idiot

  16. 16

    I thought she was AMAZING! I loved it and she has amazing stage presence. I usually don't like rap at all but I loved hers and actually thought that the way she rapped was so fierce! I think she might win the X Factor but if she doesn't, like you said Perez, she's already a winner! She's the one who's most talked about and she'll be huge outside of X Factor.

  17. 17

    I was not blown away. I don't care if she raps or not, but the singing itself wasn't very strong. And honestly, I know some people are small or short or skinny or whatever, but she looks unhealthy and as if she were going to be swallowed by the stage.

  18. 18

    I just don't see why everyone thinks she's so great.
    It was all over the place; Her 'singing' is no match for her rapping. What will she do for ballad week?

  19. 19

    shesss ok, but diva fever are great!!! so glad they got the wild cardd, i thought you would like the perez! xx

  20. 20

    Rapping was actually good… and she moves pretty well. But the singing was rough and her face looks like it's going to fall off, so much make-up.

  21. 21

    so chav barf

  22. 22

    Re: Big-package – yeah but british people read this so he comments on it. The world doesnt revolve around your shows - idiot!

  23. 23

    OMG am I the only one who thinks she looks like the female gremlin of Gremlins 2?! lmao oh and yeah not feeling her so much I prefer Lady Sovereign to be fair.

  24. 24

    i live in britain and believe me we dont have lady sovereign she never did well here.

  25. 25

    that's just crap. She sound like she should have a good voice but she can't seem to utilise it properly at all. And can someone please tell her that her eyebrows look ridiculous?

  26. 26

    I have to say I thought she was dreadful. She has no voice, no breath control, and no "image" other than that of a chav princess!!
    I cannot understand what all the fuss is about when you have a contestant like Mary on the show who can sing AND has stage presence in spades.

    Bye Cher, you're time is up, thanks for popping in!

  27. 27

    Bad.. Awful.. horrendous… just all of those words cant really describe how bad this is! Wow, and I thought she couldn't get worse.. And Cheryl.. She should be just a bit more professional.. jumping like that.. and her dancing and singing with her.. Yes we know she is your favorite.. But come on.. You got 3 other girls that need as much attention.. And I felt this performance was awful and messy.. really just all over the place. And she will be booted out in week 4 or 5. Cause her voice is not good enough.. Cant stand her.. At all..

  28. 28

    its ok

  29. 29

    She sounds terrible.

  30. 30

    she's a bit over rated imo, rebecca ferguson is better!

  31. 31

    what the fuck are the judges hearing that I'm not? She's a terrible singer :/

  32. 32

    I thought that was bad!

  33. 33

    Nothing special, don't see what all the fuss is about. Cathy Dennis sang it 100 times better.

  34. 34

    Why does she keep trying to "rap" in every song?? I was impressed with her first performance but now, I think she just knows how to pitch certain notes and that's about it. PLus, u can tell she doesn't have the personality to work under pressure. This is a case of: "I can only be a good singer with one song" so far, all the others vocal performances after the first one were weak.

  35. 35

    I see some other posts on here and I agree, Cher is weak. I can't believe the judges like her. Her voice is terrible in my opinion. What are the judges drinking???

  36. 36

    It was all over the place and she never really got control of her performance unlike some of the other acts who had shaky starts but managed to pull it together as they sung.
    I think people are giving her a little too much attention which may be effecting her ability to be herself and concentrate on the performance.
    Also WHY are the judges being so nice this year? No real criticisms or advice. Just 'yeh very good, you're really proving you should be here!' That's not what we want to hear!!!

  37. 37

    30 seconds of that, and I had to turn off her wailing voice. Her version is an injustice to the S.O.S. Band, who had a major hit with this in the late 80s. Cher…….YOU SUCK BABE!!!!

  38. 38

    Re: AllaFrost.com – NOOOO!!!!! You are the other one with any taste….I think Cher is a travesty. Her voice needs to mature and she needs to find the range that suits her best. Still in work in progress imo.

  39. 39

    Re: hubbabubba1234 – You must be like, 12??? She sounds like a cat in heat!

  40. 40


  41. 41

    shes not fat, gay or latina and perez still likes her? shocking. I think shes really good, and Im glad someone fixed her eyebrows.

  42. 42

    Re: AllaFrost.com – I agree with you, I didn't dig it. I liked her rapping but the singing was off.

  43. 43

    Lady Sovereign was signed in the UK for one (very poor) album that only made it to number 57 in the charts. She's relatively unheard of, the only song people will probably recognise is the one she did with the Ordinary Boys. The reason the USA know more of her is because for some reason Def Jam thought it would be a good idea to sign her! So you guys have the privilege.. ahem.. of listening to that shit on a much larger scale than us across the pond. Touche L.A Reid! But as for Cher, she's just a little Cheryl singing mediocre pop garbage. I'm all for Paije Richardson, the wildcare entry. Or even Matt Cardle if they having singing something with a bit of substance. Also a huge fan of Tesco Mary, she has a huaaaage set of pipes on her!

  45. 45

    It's just like the Cheryl Cole bullshit!! I saw a live video of her singing(not on X-factor where they prob do still touch it up) and she was out of tune the whole time. Being able to keep on pitch is 70% of being a good singer and she fails. Will the world stop loving shit singers just because they are "hot". She is not talented, thousands of people can sing in tune and not go flat all the time, she is not amazing. I know the people who like her are tone deaf or don't know what it is to be in tune.

  46. 46

    also, I meant I saw a live video of Cher, Cheryl Cole never sings live, lol

  47. 47

    very bad. could be much more better…

  48. 48

    i really dont understand the lady sovreign comparisons…

  49. 49

    How is she going to pull this off every week? Gamu could have done better things, seriously.

  50. 50

    I love this girl! Her signing did kind of stink, but hopefully she will do better.

    I hope she goes far, she's interesting.

  51. 51

    Re: FuschiaLambie – Wtf? Just because your a little tweeny who has no musical taste. You sound like Louis Walsh! :L

  52. 52

    Re: Scissorhandz – she may be a brit but she was and never will be popular or sucessful here. she was signed to american lable and floped. heck i didnt even know who she was untill she did one of our reality shows.

  53. 53

    Re: Big-package – Actually I watch it here in the US and if you have read any other of Perez's posts, he states that Selena Gomez watches it too so i'd do some research before you state untrue facts :)

  54. 54

    sorry i think it is horrible. that girl can not sing. she missed every note. what is that? even my cat can sing better MIAOOOO

  55. 55

    this reminded me of paula abdul alot. !

  56. 56

    Dude, she sucks. Her rapping is probably the only good part. Her singing voice is awful, weak and is not at all full or rich. Boo

  57. Megg2 says – reply to this


    I love this girl!

  58. 58

    She is in one word……..HORRIBLE.

  59. 59

    Re: cornwall.rocks55 – Listen you Limey! This is an American website, based in the US, run by an American!! The vast majority of readers are American based on our population of 300 million!! maybe if you spent less time watching shitty British talent shows and went to the dentist, you wouldnt be so hideous to look at!!

  60. 60

    Re: WonderWoman114 – So I guess it makes sense to cover all the shitty shows in Canada, Austrailia, and what…Brazil? You rotten-tooth Brits started this whole talent show phenomena!! Take Simon Cowell back, listen to your spice girl albums, eat your fish n chips, and shut the hell up!

  61. 61

    I'm confused..isn't she supposed to be able to sing?

  62. 62

    Her vocals were very weak this week. The rap saved her.

  63. 63

    Re: Big-package – Take Simon Cowell back, listen to your spice girl albums, eat your fish n chips, and shut the hell up
    Omg even though im british that did make me laugh Lol

  64. 64

    Her pitch was constantly flat and she seems kind of frail.

  65. 65

    Re: cornwall.rocks55 – what the fuck are you talking about? the x factor and every other show like it sucks. the x factor is a karaoke show. and just because you can get on it in the uk doesn't mean anything… it's still an american site and americans don't want to hear about these nobodies on a show that majority of americans have never heard of. if i wanted to hear about this piece of shit show you guys call for entertainment, i would go on a uk website asshole!

  66. 66

    And this cher chick looks like she's about 40 years old. lmao

  67. 67

    I don't like her,I have a feeling she is not right in the head.

  68. 68

    She is a one trick pony and listening to an album with her doing the same in each song would be my idea of hell

  69. 69

    Love her rapping. Has a great voice for it. But I agree with some of you guys…her actually singing voice sounds shaky, maybe a little off key here.

  70. 70

    I think shes terrible!she has no talent at all and shouldnt be there!!she cant even sing!

  71. 71

    Re: Big-package – "This is an American website, based in the US, run by an American!! The vast majority of readers are American based on our population of 300 million!!"

    Teehee, and what they were saying is that thát American watches British shows and talks about them on his American website. PH has a pretty international crowd, don't get your panties in a twist.

  72. 72

    Re: Big-package – HAHA how is that even relevant when you're from Canada
