It’s clear to say that from the looks of Twitter and Facebook last night there was some outrage at the two acts that were booted from the reality show.
We said goodbye to both The Risk and Johnny Robinson in the double elimination – but the really shocking thing was, Frankie Cocozza stayed.
After his God awful performance of ‘I Got A Feeling’ and the fact two acts were going, it was a certainty, in my mind, that he would be making an swift exit out of the back door, with the hope that we would never have to hear from him again. But no. Surprisingly people vote for him, I’m not certain what they are exactly listening to, but it can’t be the same thing that I am.
I am still truly heartbroken that The Risk had to go and can’t believe that they received the fewest votes. It just goes to show that you really do need to vote to keep your favourite in. Not only are they great singers they also give a performance when they’re on stage. Plus, it helps that they’re all good looking. Especially Andrew Merry, the Scottish lad, I do love that accent.
And of course, Johnny Robinson. OK, I will admit that I can’t see myself buying his albums or watching him perform live in concert, but I expected a couple more weeks out of this lovely man. And at least he can actually sing, not like someone else I’ve already ranted on about.
Not only does Johnny have some talent, he was also grateful to be there which was really humbling to watch. You could see his excitement each week as he stood on stage. It was even more gratifying to watch when Gary enjoyed his performance, which leads to Johnny squealing with excitement.
We can only hope that the public gets a clue next week and we will finally see the back of Frankie Cocozza. If we don’t, expect another rant on Monday morning.
