Matt's X-Factor Chart: Eighties Week

Welcome to my second look back at last night's X-Factor where I chart the final fourteen's performances during 1980s week. However, controversially, only eleven of the acts decided to perform tracks that were originally released during the eighties.


1. Fleur East - It's a Shame
Fleur is one of the aforementioned offenders as Monie Love's version of It's a Shame was released in 1990. But that was the only negative comment I have about a performance which was energetic, soulful and signalled Fleur out as a serious contender.

2. Lauren Platt - What a Feeling
Lauren continues to dazzle for a second week in a row however I would've like to have seen a bit more energy from her. On the plus point I could easily see her version of the Flashdance theme being used for the next John Lewis Christmas advert.

3. Paul Akister - If You Don't Know me by Now
Despite it putting me in mind of David Brent's performance of the song, Paul once again proved that he was the most reliable of the male vocalists.

4. Only the Young - Come on Eileen
While it might not have been vocally as strong as some of the performances lower down in the chart, Only the Young's appearance was one of the night's most memorable. With their trademark energy on show, the quartet had to contend with a wacky skateboarding set and an odd arrangement of the Dexy's Midnight Runners hit.

5. Jack Walton - Straight Up

Jack continues to deliver for me as he takes risks with his song choices but always manages to provide decent performances.

6. Stereo Kicks - Boys of Summer
Just like their stable mates, Stereo Kicks' vocals weren't brilliant but their energetic turn and their growing chemistry made them a joy to watch.

7. Jay James - 500 Miles
Jay wins the battle of the growly men this week as his slowed down version of The Proclaimers classic just about worked.

8. Lola Saunders - Imagine
Putting aside the fact that this song wasn't originally released in the 1980s, I thought that the talented Lola was ill-served this week with a ballad that didn't show off her true potential.

9. Andrea Fautisini - One Moment in Time

Although the nation loves him, I found Andrea to be off time during the early parts of the song as well as off key towards the end. However he still possesses of the strongest vocals in the contest and I feel that this was simply a case of a good singer having a bad week.

10. Stephanie Nala - Call Me
It does appear to me as if the producers of X-Factor want to get rid of Steph as soon as possible. They've lumbered her with two songs that don't let her showcase her vocals and she's been one of the first to perform on both shows. On the plus side, this was a step up from last week but I still feel she'll be in danger tonight.

11. Ben Haenow - Jealous Guy
Ben is the one X-Factor contestant that I would still struggle to pick out of a line-up and his vocal on this version of the John Lennon track, which was originally released in 1975, was dodgy to say the least.

12. Chloe Jasmine - Fame

Sounding even more ridiculous than she did last week, Chloe's faux accent didn't serve her well during her performance of the Irene Cara hit.

13. Jake Quickenden - Total Eclipse of the Heart
This was a case of wrong song for the wrong singer, Jake tried his best but this performance felt flat in more ways than one.

14. Stevi Ritchie - Never Gonna Give You Up
Stevi's cheesy antics aren't in the same level as Wagner or Jedward as he's far too aware of his own limitations. In fact I feel a little bit sorry for Stevi having to go out on national TV every week and make a fool of himself. I'm just hoping that the public put him out of his misery sooner rather than later.
