The Only 2 X Factor Performances You Need To Watch Are THESE!

| Filed under: Michael JacksonX Factor

Her best performance thus far!!!!

Drew absolutely killed it on Michael Jackson night yesterday with her interpretation of Billie Jean. Wow! Wow! Wow!

That vocal was flawless! Nuanced! Passionate! Absolutely captivating!

It didn't bother us that she didn't get out of that chair. She didn't have to! It didn't bother us that she didn't go out of her comfort zone and do an uptempo. This was her sweet spot and it was a homerun!

Watch it above!

The only other standout performance last night was Marcus Canty with his take on P.Y.T.!

He started off very strong and continued that way throughout the rest of his performance!

A lot of the credit goes to that fierce arrangement/remix/update of the song! It felt so CURRENT and fresh! But, Marcus really delivered it! So well!

He had something to prove and you could tell! It paid off!

Check out his performance below!

- Astro: He gave a great performance, BUT we've really soured on him! We find it hard to support him because of his attitude.

- Melanie: She hasn't given one bad performance yet! Last night was not her best, though.

- Chris: He keeps getting better every week! Very solid yesterday!

- Rachel Crow: Sassy but not a homerun.

- Josh: Not his week at all! He was our least favorite last night!

    TEAM MARCUS CANTY!!!! :)

    hahaha! Marcus was the worst one. You have NO taste in music.



  3. 3

    Mel was the BEST!!! and what was up with his MJ's kids they were so bored! Prince had head phones on, Paris was looking up the entire time, Blanket sat there looking like a serial killer! lol Can someone please cut his hair and stop calling him Blanket!! They can think of a better nick name then that

    Except for Drew, they all sucked. I hate how they over produce the songs with the dancing people, lights and back up singers. I just want to hear the singers sing with no gimmicks. The girl that went last is a good singer but I dont care about her. Marcus sucked, the taco guy was horrible and Astro is a waste of time. Not sure how he got this far. The little black girl with the curly hair is embarrassing to watch.

    Are you kidding me?? Marcus was terrible last night, especially considering that MJ music should have been his most comfortable genre!
    Mel was amazing, by far the best of the night. And I love Rachel, but even she looked bored with her performance. I blame that on Simon's song choice though. She should have done ABC (I know technically that's Jackson 5 not MJ, but it should count) - she would have killed that song.

    Marcus was definitely the worst of the night. I think he will go home and Chris Renee. Drew and Melanie were the best.

    Marcus is an incredible performer. he just doesn't have the voice to back it up. Such a shame. I don't why ppl liked Drew but this is Simon's fault. Billie Jean cover, by her was not good and this song makes no sense being sung by a girl. I don't know why everyone was so enamored with Melanie, it was just ok. I also notice, she seems to think she has this contest, in the bag now.

    Drew dont listen to does crazy women!! their trying to get you to fail listen to Simon!!!! Your voice is not meant to sing up tempo!!!!!! Its like Adele singing a Brittany song it just shouldnt happen!! There's a reason that all of Paula's groups are out and Nichole's are on their way out!!

    Give Astro a break Perez!! He had ONE bad week!! SO WHAT!!!
    Drew was the best last night IMO “and Melanie was second followed by Chris Rene!

    I whole heartedly DISAGREE. I thought Drew took the most energetic and regcognizable song of our generation and completely sucked the live out of it. I'm NOT impressed with her mediocre vocals. Everything sounds the same. Marcus was horribly off key, this is after all a SINGING COMPETITION! Melanie stole the show with the only true pro vocal performance of the night.

    funny how you are all about drew now when you swore up and down at the beginning of the season that she had "no star potential" - proving how little you know about this kind of thing.



  12. 12

    i'm sorry, but marcus was the worst last night! he should have gone last week. never liked him



  13. 13

    Wonder who dragged MJ's kids there? They certainly didn't look too enthused to be there. But his daughter Paris is gorgeous. Not sure what to make of Blanket. Who's his momma? Not the same as the other two. As far as the singers, I really liked Mel, with her new/old accent. Astro is a one trick pony ans Marcus was off key. The rest were ok.



  14. 14

    Re: pie107 – Thanks for the LOLZ!!

    Drew is truly boring, tried of her melodies, time for her to show what she has. I agree with Paula & Nicole's comments. Marcus's performance was good, he has energy but his vocals were off bc of all the dancing. Marcus and Chris are adorable. Now Melanie killed it, she moved me and no one thus far has done that. Astro, his career is pretty much written out for him already, hopefully his mouth won't get in his way.

    I hated drew's performance. billie jean is maybe the one michael jackson song that really must be done by a guy. weird to hear a girl singing about another girl accusing her of being the father of her child….well it's weird to me anyway…probably sounds normal to perez.
    Drew is boring. Melanie is great if you want to go see Celine Dion in concert. I like Chris Rene the best.



  17. 17

    What is wrong with Blanket Jackson? Is he mentally retarded/autistic?



  18. 18

    Drew's song was a blatant ripoff of Chris Cornell's stripped down version, which would have been PEFECT for Josh and not her. Too bad…



  19. 19

    Marcus Canty sounded a hot ass mess. He ruined PYT and the backing track sounded like an Usher song.



  20. 20

    DREW IZ THE X-FACTOR!!~!~! ;]~



  21. 21

    drew was fantastic !!! the way the song should be sung. what's with that drunk paula? she should keep her mouth shut, she couldn't even come close. I hope the song gets recorded.



  22. 22

    OMG, Drew and Astro just got eliminated in the result show! I wonder if it's rigged…Although Drew's singing is not my style (she's like a younger more modern Sarah McLachlan, I was waiting for her to do Angel), I really thought she was connecting with fans and was sure the judges would save her. Oh well, I guess we all got it wrong. And, by the way, her Billie Jean was not that original. Yes, it's like Chris Cornell's version + David Cook did it so much better on American Idol. Not to mention that it's kinda weird for a 14 yr old girl to be singing "Billie Jean is not my lover" and "the kid is not my son". Um, yeah… As for Astro, I'm amazed by his talent, the kid not only raps but he actually writes amazing rhymes, a true hip hop artist in the making.

    Oh and Melanie "from the Veergen Aylands" Amaro gave the best performance of the night.

    Marcu CANTSING is a joke. Is his mother his girlfriend??

    This is further proof that you are clueless when it comes to music and what people want. These two ended up at the bottom. Just stick to blogging, it was the only thing you had a knack for and you've even slipped a lot on that lately. In other words, you just suck at what you do. The downfall continues..
