****
Easily the best performance from the first show. I found it amazing that she didn't know the song prior to having to sing it but still managed to do a great job of singing it. Hope she wins as she is so much better than a lot of the other contestants *coughJaicough* :P
****
I would agree with Zac.
****
Pretty good performance, 3.5.
****
Quite strong.

This happens everywhere but still wtf is with the crowd in these shows? When a musician(s) usually perform(s), they applaud AFTER the performance. Not during; and certainly not after they sing like two notes! I'll just prepare a Profit/Loss and just do the title & sales revenue, can I has recognition now please? :P

Anyway, I love the original, and her over-the-top voice definitely reminds me of when Mary J Blige collaborated with U2 on this. It's certainly better than the other cover but still meh.

TRASH!

Disclaimer: I understand that for Dami's upcoming album release, there will be a newly recorded version of this cover, however this review covers the originally released single.

There's an internal instinct (for me at least) to approach this record with apathy. To treat its lazy, uninspired & unfulfilling content by reciprocating the exact same traits in my review of the song, thereby calling the question of why I'd even bother? I stopped giving a crap about how many I have a long time ago. The problem with this mentality is the hypocrisy. After all, who am I to judge this record and the people who push this record into consciousness on the basis of it being lazy, uninspired & unfulfilling if I myself am producing content which will inevitably enbody these exact traits (though I do occasionally enjoy the fact that I am wasting more and more of the time of people I don't know, hi whoever you are!).

Despite the stigma, there is intrigue to note in this record, because I find the idea of having to trim down a song like this to just be fascinating. You pretty much can't do it, and they can't. Also weirdly, for the first half of the track, instead of being drowned out by the audience, Dami is oddly drowned out by the piano. I'm guessing because it was at the start of the X Factor season that they hadn't quite worked out the balance on their levels, but with the benefit of hindsight I know that not to be true.

HOWEVER, this gets bonus point fractions purely because from my understanding, this is the only X Factor recording from this year that fades out instead of abruptly ending which is really jarring particularly in my Winamp library as it cuts to the next song pretty much instantly. I haven't heard all of the recordings though so I can't be sure, I'd love to be clued in on more to see if this is or isn't a bizarre exception.
