The X Factor USA Top 4 Performance Review

The X Factor USA Top 4 Performance Review

On last night’s performance episode of The X Factor USA, the final four competitors sang for their lives. Each did two songs and killed it. But, alas, only three can go through to the Finals on the show. Here’s our take on what went down. In case you’ve missed the show, you can read our recap here, or check out all of the videos of each performance here.

People’s Choice Songs:

Marcus Canty did a nice version of Boyz II Men’s song, I’ll Make Love To You. It was on-key and the pitch was just right. This guy puts some real feeling into his songs.

Chris Rene performed Fly by Sugar Ray and it was so-so. He’s got talent, but this might not have been the best song for him. It sounded karaoke-ish to us.

Melanie Amaro killed her song choice, which was Mariah Carey’s Hero. Not a lot of people should and can cover Mariah. So this was a risk. A well-worth it risk, at that.

Josh Krajcik brought the house down with his cover of The Beatles’ song, Come Together. He’s got soul and he nailed this song perfectly.

Judge’s Choice Songs:

Marcus performed Careless Whisper by Wham and it was alright. Not that great for a song like this. We’ll see if he’s in the bottom two AGAIN.

Chris murdered Alicia Keys’ song, No One. Here’s another singer that not many can mimic. Chris proved that with this cover. Chris might just end up in the bottom two because of it.

Melanie nailed it again with her cover of Nina Simone’s Feelin’ Good. We love her voice and her range. This girl can sing anything. A definite winner.

Josh pulled a safe song out of his pocket and performed Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. Still, he’s going to be the guy to beat.

Whose performance was your favorite? Who are you rooting for? Stay tuned, tonight, we’ll be providing our live blog of the show, as it airs!
