The X Factor 2013 Episode 5 Recap: A Lot Of Duds And A Marriage Proposal?| September 26, 2013 at 1:26 AM EST
The X Factor 2013 auditions episodes concluded Wednesday night with several dud performances and really gimmicky and pointless marriage proposal. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s start at the beginning of the auditions.
Melanie Wright. Her version of “Titanium” was AMAZING. OK, I’m joking. And while I’m here, let me just say they opened with this joke of a performance? Come on, X Factor we deserve better than that! Moving on…
Oh, wait. Yay. We get a series of awful auditions to open the night. Wonderful.
Emery Kelly. Finally, a legitimate audition. Well maybe. The start was very rough. But I think there was some nerves going on. The judges stopped him early because I thought they were going to ask him to sing another song. But it was really just to praise the heck out of him. But like Simon said, he does have potential. And he is a cute kid, so I think I’m OK with his four yeses from the judges.
Khaya Cohen. Another young girl and another wrong song choice. They stop her from singing the Dreamgirls song to see what else she has. So she then starts with “I Put A Spell On You” and it was instantly better. She’s got quite a voice on her to be so young. She’s still rough around the edges, though, but they like that on this show. They like to turn them into something. So it should be no surprise she moves on to the next round.
Joseph Tolve. It’s time another not-so-good audition. Only this time it’s awesome because he decided to sing “Skycraper” by Demi in front of Demi.
James Kenney. Back from season one, James seems to be more polished and I think we might see him around a little longer this time. He’s definitely a very talented man who is not living the life someone with his talent is mean to live. His soul and commanding voice got him four yeses.
David Gray. So basically we were lead to believe this guy was a good singer when he’s really just here to propose to his girlfriend who is coming up next. Lame.
Lauren Waguespack. Well, she’s at least better than her boyfriend. But not singing show worthy, if you ask me. But that’s OK, because this was never about them actually auditioning. They just wasted my time and yours on a gimmicky marriage proposal.
Tim Olstad. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a more nervous audition. He might have been less nervous had Demi not put him on the spot, but whatever. His audition was better than most from the night. So I can only imagine how much better he sounds when he’s comfortable. Hopefully his nerves come down before the next round.
Wesley Mountain. Despite his creepy Kelly obsession, his performance was pretty nice. He’s got a tender voice and it’s all pretty effortless for him. I think a different song would be better for him, but I liked what he gave us.
Celine Polenghi. She needs to work on loosening up a bit, but her voice is pretty nice. And she has great potential, just like Simon said.
Lorie Moore. This woman’s football player looks like someone you wouldn’t want to mess with. So it’s a good thing she’s a solid singer because she won’t be getting any criticism from me. Her audition was one of the best of the night, clearly. Even if there were a few rocky moments. She gets through to the next round.
And since we opened with something ridiculous, we closed with something ridiculous. And I’m not even going to bother to review it. I’m just going to close out this recap, while shaking my head. I’ll see you guys Thursday night.
