It’s Big Band week this week on X Factor. Michael Buble is the special guest and mentor, and Westlife will be the live performers on Sunday’s results show.
Although how some of these songs are Big Band songs, I haven’t a clue – especially the versions they are meant to be singing. Beyonce? U2? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see. Come on John and Edward!
Rachel: ‘Proud Mary’ – Creedence Clearwater Revival (Beyonce version)
Stacey: ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’ – Cliff Edwards
Lucie: ‘My Funny Valentine’ – Ella Fitzgerald
Joe: ‘Sway’ – Pablo Beltran (Michael Buble version)
Lloyd: ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ – Frank Sinatra
Danyl: ‘Feeling Good’ – John Coltrane/Nina Simone (Muse version)
Jamie: ‘Angel Of Harlem’ – U2
Olly: ‘Bewitched’ – Steve Lawrence (theme tune from the 60s TV show)
John and Edward: ‘She Bangs’ – Ricky Martin
Miss Frank: ‘That’s Life’ – Frank Sinatra
