Saturday saw the big finale for 2008’s X-Factor. The three finalists, JLS, Eoghan Quigg and Alexandra Burke started the show off with Christmas songs.  

Eoghan picked ‘I Wish It Could Be Chrismas Every Day’, which was a bit off-key. JLS delivered a great version of Wham ‘Last Christmas’. Strong vocals and the spruced up version pulled this somewhat dated song right back into this decade.


The only one to perform a ballad was Alexandra Burke with ‘Silent Night’. We think she should have picked something more upbeat (‘All I want for Christmas’ by Mariah anyone?)

After the Christmas solos it was time to bring out the star power. Eoghan was joined on stage by fellow Irishmen Boyzone on ‘Picture of You’.

JLS teamed up with Westlife on ‘Flying Without Wings’. How many people are on that stage?

And Alexandra had the pleasure of performing the Dreamgirls track ‘Listen’ vocal powerhouse Beyonce. The sheer presence of Bee proved to be a bit too much for Alexandra. Adorable.

After all that star power, the acts had to finish the show on their own. Eoghan finished with ‘We're all in this Together’, JLS with ‘I’m Already There’ and Alexandra with ‘You Are So Beautiful’.

While everyone was voting, Beyonce gave yet another performance of ‘If I Were A Boy’.

Despite the Irish vote, first one out was Eoghan. Which left Alexandra and JLS to battle it out over their deliveries of the winner’s single ‘Halalujah’. The finalists both did a good job on this Leonard Cohen song, but it was Alexandra who really pulled out all the stops. And we’re glad the British public voted in her favour.

Congrats Alexandra!

In case you didn’t Sky+ the performances, here’s an overview of X-Factor ’s semi finals (show 9).

Alexandra Burke
Don’t Stop The Music; great choice, she shows she can dance and sing.

Un-break My Heart; Alexandra is such a professional. She works it. Well, maybe not that jump suit.

Diana Vickers
White Flag; Diana proves she still can’t hold a note. Even on a simple Dido song. No offence, but she’s not a great singer, nor a great entertainer.

Girlfriend; odd song choice. Both you and I know we would knock her out if she laid her eyes on your boyfriend.

JLS
Umbrella; quite slick and non-descript, but Aston’s back flip gives it the needed wow-factor.

I’m Already There; epic ballad, but it sounds too much like Boys II Men meets Westlife. Not something we want.

Eoghan Quigg
Year 3000; Quite likable! Finally a song that’s fun and young.

Does Your Mother Know?  Eoghan comes out as an ABBA fan. Shocker! Shame he has to pick one of their naffest songs (Simon, Dannii was right!).

So overall, Alexandra was amazing, the boys were okay and Diana - who should have left the show weeks ago - finally made her exit.

Who will you be voting for next week?
