X Factor 2013 Premiere Night Two Recap: A Night Of The Duds| September 13, 2013 at 8:00 AM EST
The X Factor 2013 was back for a second night to finish off its season 3 premiere, and with two whole hours, we got a little more talent and a whole lot of duds.
Actually the show opened with a bunch of horrible singers and crazy people. And that went on way too long before we finally got to the talent.
So let’s take a look at the standouts from the second episode of the season.
Rylie Brown. She started off with a nice raspy voice but then she blew the words and couldn’t regain herself right away. It knocked her off key and she struggled before finally coming back. I wasn’t impressed, but the judges and the audience seemed to see something in her. She got four yeses and moves on to the next phase. (Rylie pictured above)
Jeff Brinkman. He sounded a little too much like Joe Cocker signing a Joe Cocker song, but I think today that’s OK, because most people watching the show probably don’t even know who Joe Cocker is. This guy is pretty solid and should make it far in the Over 25s. He gets all yeses and moves on.
And then it’s time for more horrible singers. Zzzzzz. Let’s skip that and get back to the legitimate singers.
Rachel Potter. I wasn’t crazy about her song choice. Mostly because I think no one should ever sing Queen. But the audience loved it and the judges loved it enough to put her through to the next round.
Jorge Pena. We were supposed to think he was just going to be an annoying douche but he was actually a pretty solid performer. But the judges tell him to adjust his attitude, basically.
Simone Torres. Since the theme of the night has been horrible singers, I was sure she was going to be another one. But she busted out a very soulful and fun version of “Mustang Sally.” Very impressed.
Roxxy Montana. The sister group from Michigan are giving music one last shot before they have to go to college. And it looks like they won’t be getting it on The X Factor. Actually, only one of three actually sounded worthy of the stage and Simon let them know that. They let them do another song and they all sounded much better as a group on that one. So they get the chance to move on but don’t expect them to last long. (Group pictured above)
Al Calderon. I think this kid might be the definition of the show. He needs some polishing, but he knows how to command a stage with her moves and grab an audience with his smile and smooth sounds. He gets four easy yeses and moves on to the next round. (Al pictured below)
Denise Weeks. This subway car singer took on “The Greatest Love of All” by Whitney Houston and it was powerful and emotional after Simon made her stop the track and sing it without music. Which is how she sings on the subway. Will she be able to perform to music? She’ll find out. She got four yeses.
