X Factor 2012 week 6 review: Jahmene Douglas & James Arthur underwhelmed as Christopher Maloney & Union J shone!

Unreality tv fans it’s all up in the air tonight. I had my article planned out already. I’d crunched the numbers, done the math, looked at all scenarios and worked out how it would go. It was all so simple, the 3 safe acts Jahmene Douglas, Ella Henderson and James Arthur would all go through, Union J would benefit from District 3’s elimination, and Rylan Clark and Christopher Maloney would be in the bottom two and the judges would eliminate Chris.

But that’s all gone to pot…

At first all was going to plan, Union J gave their best performance of the series, I love ‘Call Me Maybe’, sorry Tulisa, and the boys did an excellent job of it. Their vocals have really improved week on week, when they beat Jade they were terrible, but tonight they were amazing, sure they will be safe.

Ella Henderson, was just Ella. There really is nothing more to say. Each week we get amazing performance after amazing performance. She took a song I really hate, and she made me love it, or her version at least. Why hasn’t Louis called it yet? Let me do it for him, Ella I want you in the final!

I thought James Arthur really lacked something tonight. Gary Barlow broke ranks and said he wanted James to win, but I thought the performance was really wet, there was just nothing there for me, the performances about pain etc, are much better.

Rylan, Rylan, Rylan :( I hated him at first, then he won me over week after week, and then he became a favourite after some of my other faves left. But this week was dire, his psychic got it spot on, week seven he will be out. Does anyone have the name of his psychic by the way, I want to meet her!

Cheese Baloney aka Christopher Maloney, actually, wasn’t all that bad. It hurts me to say it because I’ve been so desperate for him to be chucked out, but based on tonight actually he’s in my top three. I still stand by the fact that it would be a disaster for him to win, but based on the performance tonight, he does deserve to be here next week in the quarter final.

Jahmene Douglas: I wasn’t feeling it this week. I really want him in the final. While Ella is better vocally, my heart has been with Jahmene because of his background. I can empathise with some of what he has been through. In saying that however, I can’t lie for him, and I just think something was missing, but please Britain, I want you to keep him in, and I’m sure you will.

My predictions, this week, I’m clueless. I know Rylan will be in the bottom two and to be honest I want him gone now. Who the other person will be I don’t know. James and Jahmene are popular, but gave bad performances in my opinion, Union J have been in the bottom 2 twice before, but really pulled it out of the bag this week and should see their votes double, and Chris who I’ve really disliked week on week actually gave a good performance, and for once doesn’t deserve to go (it would be ironic if he did).

So what do you think Unreality TV readers. Maybe Rylan’s psychic and I are wrong and he will be safe what do you think? Tell me below xx

    It will be union j and rylan in the bottom. The theory that d3 is out and union j gets their votes is stupid. I dont know what unreality was listening to but the top 3 ella, james and jahmene were best by a mile. So blatant to see. Union j gave the least best vocals. Chris vocals were good but not on the same level. This is not just based on the performance on the night since they are looking for a recording artist so people vote by popularity and singing. Based on this jahmene is a front runner. His fan base is growing and his vocals have been strongest overall throughout whole competition. We all know xf is fixed and the news the winners single has a charity backing has sent a message out by producers have decided the winner. Likely to be a charity campaign for domestic violence

  2. Cami says:

    Jahmene’s vocals are unmatchable by any other contestant – his talent should lead him to win this competition.

  3. Gav Harrison says:

    I thought union j were terrible there harmonies were well off a few bum notes,Chris borloney was his usual cruise shop entertainer nothing special,Rylan was pretty bad he’ll be in the bottom 2 I’m pretty sure,James I used to like him but its the same every week we all know what to expect and we’ve seen his style before on the show he’s not a worldwide recording artist,Ella is good a great voice but she ain’t no Leona Lewis,Jahmene is the best vocalist his voice and range is amazing he will sell records we havnt seen anyone like him on the show before he IS world wide,apart from Chris Jahmene is pulling in massive amounts of votes

  4. Vicky Parsons says:

    Union J were terrible last night, as was Rylan and Chris… well lets not go there. The bottom two will more than likely be Union J and Rylan. James, Jahmene and Ella will be through and Chris (unfortunately) will be through because he has the public’s support (apart from me:L) leaving UJ and Rylan in the bottom two. Rylan will probably leave as Louis will save UJ and so will Gary because he hates him, Nicole will save Rylan and Tulisa… well it’ll be up to her! The whole thing about Union J getting more votes because District 3 have gone is a load of rubbish because a lot of District 3 fans have stopped watching the show and are definately not voting for Union J!!!

    • @Vicky Parsons says:

      Just because you can’t see Micky anymore doesn’t make Union J terrible. They beat District 3, and deserved to beat them.

  5. Gary G says:

    There two performers in this competition that are world class – Ella and Jahmene – the rest are not much more than entertainers. The question everyone should ask themselves
    Before voting is ” would I buy a CD of whoever” and apart from the aforementioned I would not.

    Is it just me,or is anybody taking this seriously.That idiot who covered Duran Duran,and ruined it should have gone long ago.The gorgeous young lady,and shania Twain lookalike had a super voice,and should still be in the show.I agree with Gary…….Yes Rylan is famous for being a nobody,and I think I would pay not to see him.Bring back Freddy and that fantastic voice.Queen still the best band on the planet.Look and learn children.

  7. vgmedia says:

    3rd:- James Arthur 14%

  9. maisie says:

    Chris is not my cup of tea, and i would never buy his album but i do feel for him, people/trolls are discusting people..no one should have their life threatened for something so silly.
    chris to go for a million reasons
    Jahmene to win, he was awsome on sat. x
