After last night’s mixed bag of performances, it is time for The X Factor Australia to shed another act or group with the live results show.
The night opened with the top eleven performing a medley of Classic and Thank You with rising pop stars MKTO – with the performance translating much better than last weeks!
Then it was on to Ricki Lee who burst onstage in a 70’s themed rendition of her new single Trouble – with the singer looking glamorous in huge curls and a yellow jumpsuit! The energetic performance featured some questionable dancing, but was kind of cool in a kitsch kind of way!
We were however a little disappointed that she didn’t arrive naked on a horse…
Then after a few nail-biting minutes it is revealed that Cat Vas and Joelle are the ones that have been voted into the bottom two for this week.
But before Cat and Joelle take to the stage to sing for their lives – the ridiculously talented and smooth moving John Newman arrives to perform his hit Love Me Again.
With some pretty slick production (the X Factor has really stepped it up a notch this year huh?) and old school moves, Newman is by far the most entertaining act on the stage thus far!
Then it is down to the show’s older lady singers to battle it out – with Cat Vas kicking things off with a gorgeous rendition of Radiohead’s High And Dry.
Joelle followed up with a heartfelt performance of Ed Sheeran’s Give Me Love – with her song choice shocking Ronan.
With all four judges shaken by the fact that such strong singers were in the bottom two so early on in the comp everyone struggled to make their choice.
Ronan kicked things off by sending Cat home, while a shocked Dannii put her vote behind Joelle. RedFoo obviously backed his girl, sending Cat home – with the vote coming down to Nat Bass. Surprisingly she decided to send Cat home despite feeling that Joelle’s last performance wasn’t up to scratch!
Do you agree with the decision tonight?
