There are just a few hours to go until the second X Factor 2011 live show, and with a theme of 'Love and Heartbreak' it's set to be a tearful one. We suggest stocking up on tissues because there's going to be some totes emosh performances!
Speaking about this week's theme, [tag]Misha Bryan[/tag] had some wise words for us viewers: “Everyone can relate to it, because every person in the world has suffered some sort of heartbreak – whether it’s because of family, friends or romance.”
Kitty teased her appearance on tonight's show: “The next performance is going to be something that’s never been done before on The X Factor, it’s a song that’s never been sung on X Factor.”
She added: “It’s a huge risk, a bigger risk than Queen. It’s very, very iconic and it’s got a lot of scope for theatricality.”
Discussing his upcoming performance, [tag]Craig Colton[/tag] revealed he'd be singing a more up-tempo track tonight: “This week’s performance will be a bit different to what I’ve done previously on the show. I’ve done a lot of ballads, so this week is a bit more uptempo. It’s not a fast song but it’s a little more cheeky and uptempo than what you’ve seen before.”
Marcus Collins on the other hand promised a slow and emotional song choice.
"If I had to give you a glimpse into this week’s performance I would say it’s going to be emotional, hopefully very emotive," he said. “I’m going to pan it right down the camera to you guys at home, so hopefully you’ll feel it and understand the lyrics of the song and maybe be able to relate to it.”
He added: “It’s going to be very different from last week, I’ll be doing a slow one.”
And it sounds like [tag]Johnny Robinson[/tag] plans another outrageous performance.
“It might have elements of Japanese and Quentin Tarantino twist to it, with a mixture of pop," he said.
But he added: “This week’s performance will be just as exciting, just as creative and just as off the wall as last weeks but I think it might be scaled down a bit, it won’t be as big a production.”
Finally, favourites to leave [tag]Nu Vibe[/tag] are doing their best to avoid elimination.
They said: “We are working non-stop to make sure our vocals will be stronger and our show will be twice as big. Love & Heartbreak is a great theme because you get to put a lot of emotion in and we’ll be able to channel our past experiences.”
