The Show: XFactor US – The Ones To Watch

Lyric One4Five

XFactor US has finally reached judges houses and some interesting talent has come to light. Thought we’d take a look at my picks for the big win before the final acts are revealed for the live shows.

First up – Carly Rose Sonenclar

Whilst I’m pretty uncomfortable with the age appropriateness of her song choice, this 13 year old’s talent is ridiculous even sending Wil-i-am’s eyebrows into the stratosphere with one song!

Second – Lylas

This is one of those XFactor-made groups from artists that didn’t make the cut as solo artists. I hadn’t really heard a lot of them sing individually but my goodness was I pleasantly surprised by their first performance…

Third – Lyric One4Five

Another XFactor-made mashup. Lyric Da Queen entered as a solo rapper whilst One4Five were a duo. Wasn’t a fan of either before but the combination of the two… interesting…

So these are my faves, hoping they make the cut. Have you got any faves from US or UK Xfactor?

Amongst many other things, I'm a 30-something contemplative Londoner making the daily commute between contentment and ambition.When not blogging, I'm using my talents for good as communications director at Gingerland and co-founder of Love Harlem.

    Genius making up Laylas. ALL make a fab group! This is why I can’t watch UK XFator…but I’ll find myself doing so later today :/

  • lol Lylas completely surprised me they’re individually amazing and together work so well. Actually make me think a group could win it this year

    I agree. As for Carly Rose I absolutely love her voice and the way she performs but I don’t want to hear her sing that song or any other like it again. She’s 13 years old.
