We Are S.M.E

David Haye TKO’s Fraudley Harrison in Round 3 by wearesme

First off, we’d like to empathise with those of you who forked out £15 of your hard earned and/or sacrificed a night out on the tiles to watch this fight.

Everyone knows that Audley Harrison is a walking talking joke, but even the most experienced pundits out there held the opinion that he might put up some sort of a fight; after all he is a gold medalist.

But that wasn’t the case and after an extremely uneventful first 2 rounds and having thrown next to no punches, Audley Harrison was knocked out and left 1 million pounds richer. Its a funny old world!

X Factor 13/11/10 – Best Of The Bunch by wearesme

And so Live Show number 6 came to an end last night with all the acts singing Elton John numbers; rather ironicly considering Elton slated the show only weeks ago.

Rebecca Ferguson – Candle In The Wind

Top of the class this week will come as no real surprise to anyone, she’s every teachers pet; Rebecca Ferguson. Once again making a classic song sound current with her beautiful and distinctive voice.

Predominantly associated with Princess Diana, Candle In The Wind was originally written in 1973, in honor of Marilyn Monroe, who had died 11 years earlier.
But in 1997 Elton John performed a remake of the song as a tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales. This version of the song was released as a single and reached No. 1 in several countries world-wide.

One Direction – Something About The Way You Look Tonight

Stripped back with no stage performance, the boys were able to show off their vocals and harmonies on this song. Performed like a true boy band!

‘Something About The Way You Look Tonight’ was released as the first single from the album ‘The Big Picture’. Funnily enough, considering our favourite performance of the night, the single was released as a double A-side single with the 1997 version of ‘Candle in the Wind’, performed tonight by Rebecca.

Results at 8pm tonight (Sunday 14th) on ITV1.


X FACTOR 06/11/10 – BEST OF THE BUNCH by wearesme

A pretty good week all round. Baring Wagner (he’s become a more regular fixture than Cheryl’s bronzer!) SME think the weaker contestants have been voted off and were sure you’ll agree the standard now is pretty high.

Although, that being said, the strongest singers stand out like a sore thumb week in week out. And it’s no coincidence that the 2 contestants in question are our favourite performances this week; Matt Cardle and Rebecca Ferguson.

This week Matt sang the classic folk song, ‘The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face)’. The track, written by Ewan MacColl, was popularised by Roberta Flack in the 1970’s.

Whenever Matt sings you believe every word he says and the notes he hits are incredible for a male vocalist.

At the end of the performance Danny mentioned there was a story behind this song and speaking to The News Of The World Matt revealed that he had dedicated the song to his mum’s late best friend Sharon, who died when he was 11. After her death, Matt’s mother looked after Sharon’s four sons who then became like brothers to Matt and his older brother Dominic.

Rebecca sang ‘Make You Feel My Love’ by the legendary Bob Dylan and it was also notably covered by Billy Joel.

It’s incredible that such a shy and modest girl can step on stage  and look so experienced and believable. It looks like she’s been doing it for years! She has real maturity in her performances and a distinctive voice. Rebecca makes classic sound current which is a real gift.

There isn’t a doubt in SME’s mind that she will make the final.

Also a quick mention to Aiden Grimshaw who also did a great job singing ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’.

Results at 8pm tonight (Sunday 7th) on ITV1.
