Olly Murs is through to the X Factor finals and he deserves it!  He was told first out of the 4 finalists and he looked really overwhelmed, with a few tears!


Olly’s first song, ‘Can you feel it’ by Michael Jackson, was, for us, the best performance of the night. It was fun, involved energetic dancing, and is a popular song. Although some of the other ballads were good, I prefer something more upbeat to listen to on a Saturday night, and this one won it for me.

All the judges (Dannii Minogue, Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Louie Walsh) exclaimed that Olly ‘should be in the Final next week’ and advised all viewers to vote for Olly. Simon commented that Olly is the most hardworking contestant out of the final 4 and he is really impressed by his dedication to practice and rehearsals. Olly missed out on being best man yesterday (Saturday 5th December 2009) to his twin brother, Ben Murs (who got married in Chelmsford, Essex) as he had to rehearse and Simon refused to allow him to go to the wedding during the day. I guess this shows Olly’s dreams of ‘being a pop star’ are strong and he is willing to sacrifice his own desires in order to make a new career and win the X Factor. For this, plus his family’s support and his performances, I think Olly should win.

Louis said ‘you’re talented, you can sing, you can dance, you’re an all-round entertainer. People need to vote for Olly as he deserves to be in the final’

Dannii said ‘Can we feel it? We can all feel it in the room tonight. That was fantastic’

Cheryl said ‘Everyone loves you and I hope to see you in the final’

And Simon added ‘You look like a star. I cannot imagine you not being there next week’

‘We can work it out’ (written by John Lennon for the Beatles and covered by Stevie Wonder on one of his albums) was Olly’s second song choice. He made it his own and it was sung with care.

So now we will look forward to seeing him next week in the final of X Factor, which is the most important of them all……

Janet Jackson was one of the celebrity guests singing on the show, but Lady GaGa blew me away.  I am a big fan of hers, as she is so unique and professional, unlike some stereotype lady singers.

Vote Olly,
