Matt Cardle – When We Collide (Single)

Here is the official music video for Matt Cardle debut single When We Collide, which is a cover of Biffy Clyro’s Many of Horror.  Matt’s single is on its way to hit number one, after selling 112,000 copies on its first day of release.  Wow.

And the Winner of X-Factor 2010 Is…

…Matt Cardle!!!  I called it from the beginning!  To all the naysayers who said he wasn’t good (or specifically Perez Hilton, who never featured him or any of his performances on his blog – Cher was clearly his favourite), this just shows the best vocalist will win!!

No gimmicks.  No frills.  Just an awesome vocalist, performer, and nailed every single song during his time on the X-Factor.  I knew Matt would win, because he had a massive amount of support from Twitter.  Hell, he even had a Twitter account for his hat (@MattCardlesHat), which became his trademark online.

His debut single is When We Collide, which is fantastic.  Also, he performed Katy Perry’s smash hit, Firework, which I always thought would be a perfect match for his voice, and he nailed it, of course.  Congrats Matt!  Well deserved!!

Matt Cardle and Rihanna – Unfaithful

I believe this just sealed the deal.  Between Rebecca and Matt, this performance just made him win the competition.  You could literally feel the heat between these two as they performed, and could easily re-release this as a single, ending up with a smash hit for Matt.  Rihanna is so hot.  That’s all.

Alexandra Burke – The Silence (X-Factor Semi-Finals Results Live)

The winner of X-Factor 2008, Alexandra Burke, performed her smash hit single The Silence during tonights semi-finals results show.  I honestly got goosebumps.  Her vocal performance was flawless and chilling.  Along with Leona Lewis and Olly Murs, Alexandra is easily the best X-Factor contestant to grace the stage.  Check out her performance below!

Rebecca Ferguson – Amazing Grace/Show Me Love

Wow.  It’s going to be a really tough time to see who makes it into the finals.  Rebecca is easily going to make it after slaying both of these performances.  Especially her rendition of Amazing Grace.  She really is a class act.  I would say that Rebecca, Matt, and One Direction will make it into the finals.  Sorry Cher, you were really good this week, but not as good as the others.

Matt Cardle – You’ve Got the Love/She’s Always A Woman

Well, Matt Cardle has officially won.  Forget the fact that he had a flu/tonsilitis last week and was almost forced to leave the competition.  Matt sang my favourite song from my favourite group of all time.  Matt’s performance of Florence and the Machine’s You’ve Got the Love has, in my opinion, put him straight through the finals.  Check out his amazing performances below!

Matt Cardle – Knights in White Satin/I Love Rock & Roll

WOW.  Each contestant had to sing two songs last night, and Matt was given the chance to perform Knights in White Satin by The Moody Blues.  And his performance was amazing.

I think he does better when it’s just him and his guitar and he performs the slower songs.  His first song, I Love Rock & Roll was good, but not outstanding.  Check out both below!
