Olly Murs Live – X Factor Show 5

Olly Singing Twist and ShoutMOVIE WEEK

Tonight’s show was Movie Week.  Without a guest mentor for the show, the X Factor finalists were treated to a night out at the premiere of Disney’s “A Christmas Carol” in Leicester Square’s Odeon Cinema, London.  Olly’s choice of song for the evening was “Twist and Shout” from one of Simon’s favourite film characters, Ferris Bueller in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”.

Undoubtedly this was one of Olly’s best performances.  Olly belted out a strong vocal and put a modern spin on the dance routine with some of Michael Jackon’s “Thriller” moves.  We think it worked, but a moaning Louis Walsh tried to dig Simon out about the song choice for Olly saying, “Simon picked a really, really silly song for a great, great singer”.  How can Twist and Shout ever be labelled as a “silly song”?!  It has been covered by numerous artists over the decades including The Isley Brothers, The Beatles and The Mamas and Papas.  And it didn’t stop there – Danni and Cheryl chipped in with some comments about the Thriller moves, but the audience were clearly on Olly’s side as they began to rise up drowning out most of Cheryl’s critique chanting, “Olly! Olly! Olly!”.
