The X Factor Concert 2015 Review!

Recently my mum, sister and I went to The X Factor 2015 concert at the Three Arena.

We had a lovely time at the concert with everyone been brilliant live. My favourites live though were Ben, Andrea and Stevi. This year for the first time (well in the last three years anyway) there was an announcement of who was coming next which my mum has been saying for ages and she was right, it really worked with the show. The lightening was amazing and all the effects were too. Fleur and Stevi were surprises because I didn’t think they were going to be as good as they were and they were great. Fleur’s standout was Thriller and Stevi’s was Footloose. He’s not a bad singer and a great entertainer. Fleur has both the singing and the dancing skills. I don’t know how she does the two together and sometimes in heels too!

Andrea has this incredible emotive voice. It’s so amazing. You kind of sit there in awe. He’s brilliant. He sang four songs including my personal favourite cover of his Earth Song and then Ben is just as hot in reality. But his accent is even sexier. It’s very Croydon and very beautiful. He did six songs which included my favourite of his Highway To Hell which I just completely rocked out to of course! It was so lovely seeing a rocker as the winner and that reflected quite a lot with the crowd because there was more rockers than usual. He’s the best winner I’ve seen in the three years.

Lauren also gave a brilliant, slowed-down performance of Happy while Only The Young gave a fun uptempo performance of I Want You Back. Stereo Kicks done a lovely job of a Beatles medley while Jay sang Sigma’s Changing well.


Rock Reigns Supreme as Ben Haenow Is Crowned X-Factor Champ!

Tonight Croydon’s Ben Haenow was crowned the winner of X Factor 2014!

The talented rock singer battled against fellow competitors Fleur East who was second and Andrea Faustini who was third. The 29-year-old van driver was winning the contest from week four after his sexy and amazing performance of AC/DC’s Highway To Hell and maintained his winning streak to the end of the show winning against Fleur 57.2% to 34.3%.

Following his win, an emotional Ben said:

“Thank you so much for making my dreams come true.”

His mentor Simon Cowell said:

“A fantastic runner up Fleur. I could not be happier for you, Ben, you deserve it. You’re a great guy, this is your moment.”

Over the course of the weekend, Ben sung Demons by Imagine Dragons, Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran with the man himself, Man In The Mirror with Michael Jackson and the winner’s single Something I Need by OneRepublic.

The song is great and Ben sings it perfectly and Mel B seems to agree saying,

“That song was made for you. You pulled it back, then you put it out there. You gave range to your vocals and gave it light and shade.”

It’s a great night for Ben. It’s a great night for rock music. Well done Ben! Well-deserved! 🙂

Here is Ben singing his new single:
