Last night was another AMAZING episode of “The X-Factor”. Now I will admit, I was a little skeptical over this show at first because I thought, “do we REALLY need another version of ‘American Idol’?” But as this season has progressed, I’ve seen so many break out artists that truly deserve to be recognized, and after last night, my feelings were definitely confirmed once again.
Of course everyone on the show has crazy talent that could put some artists (that shall remain nameless) who are in the game already to shame, but there were a few superstars that I couldn’t stop thinking about when I woke up this morning, and felt they deserved some shine!
Rachel Crow is one of them. Not only can this girl sing, but she can sang!! She’s only 13 years old and her stage presence and vocals on last night’s episode got her a comparison to a young Michael Jackson when he was with the Jackson 5! Now I don’t know about you, but being compared musically to Michael Jackson has to be the biggest honor, especially when you’re only 13 years old. I’m just sayin’.
Melanie Amaro was another one of my favorites. Not only is she gorgeous, but she had enough talent to be eliminated and then brought back to the competition because “big brother” Simon realized he made a mistake and brought her back. She chose to sing a ballad last night that showed her vocal range and ability to sing a wide range of music. Go girl!
Marcus Canty also stood out in my mind. His energy last night was on 10! L.A Reid even compared him to Bobby Brown! He’s only 20 years old but his stage presence was mind-blowing and I’m sure that we’ll be seeing more of Marcus in the near future!
Of course there were more contestants that performed last night but these were my top three. Voting closes tonight as someone will get eliminated on tonight’s episode! Will you be watching? Who are you voting for?
