This week’s X Factor show will feature songs written and performed by Elton John.
It seems a strange choice, considering that the British singer/songwriter recently blasted the show telling Metro:
‘It’s become boring, a***-paralysingly brain crippling.’
The theme was confirmed by vocal coach Yvie Burnett on Matt Edmondson’s The F Factor last night and she promised an ‘incredible’ show, saying:
Elton John has had hit after hit. It’s going to be an incredible night.
Elton’s songs certainly are varied enough for the X Factor contestants and we have managed to find out a few of the tracks planned for Saturday’s live show.
Check out the list below, it will be updated as new information comes in.
Wagner Carillho – I’m Still Standing/Circle Of Life mash-up
Mary Byrne – Can you feel the love tonight.
On her song choice, Mary said: “I’ll give it all my heart and all my soul and it might just carry me through.”
Matt Cardle – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road – He said: “I’ve had Elton John forced on me since I’ve been a little boy. It’s going to be tough to better it [last week’s performance], but I will try.”
