Anyone see it tonight?

The girl in the couple reminded me of Haley. Not her voice or her looks (although she's very pretty..) But more her mannerisms..and I think her smile.

Her and her boyfriend sang Toxic.

I just watched a video of the performance after seeing some comments on Twitter. I thought the same thing you did.



Melanie Martinez of The Voice apparently felt they ripped off her arrangement. You can see that reflected in the comments.

yes we used other covers as inspiration & did give credit but they can only air so much! plus it took ages to come up with harmonies haha!

Our songs may sound familiar because we're inspired by other people's interpretations of them, And we thank everyone who has inspired us!

Alex was on American Idol this year:

I only saw this audition...Mrs. B wanted to know if I wanted to see something amazing...



54 year old grandmother of 7? Cool
Yea, she was excellent too.

Good thing they didn't put him through to the live rounds on Idol. He would have won. Wink

Quote:‘X Factor’s’ Simon Cowell on Show’s Word of Mouth: ‘It’s All I Ever Think About’ – Known for his bold pronouncements and unwavering honesty, “The X Factor” executive producer and judge Simon Cowell admitted that he feels the heat to succeed. “There’s always pressure,” he told TheWrap. “But in the world we live in now, the public dictates your future. There’s so much word of mouth with Twitter and Facebook, they control your future. It’s all I ever think about, ‘Will they like it? Will they talk about it?’ And if it does, then it will be fine.” http://www.thewrap.com/tv/x-factor-fox-s...3-premiere

Yes, I can see that too. Definitely not common mannerisms and cute/charming in their fresh way.

That was a nice way to put that although Twitter would have been a nice place to give a "shout out" to XXXX and XXX among others.

It is all fair game to use other's for inspiration.. all music is built on the shoulders of those that came before.

They couldn't give the shout outs on the show itself. It isn't the contestants role to give little speeches especially in early rounds with so much mushed in. If they'd like to give credit I think the shows have the judges bring it up, or let (on Idol) Ryan ask a leading question that lets them do so. There are some politics and finacial motivations in terms of whether the judges want to call out a contestant on another show.

Perhaps the show producers strongly advised the two not to name names.

Still, I think a tweet mentioning her by name would have been polite if they were allowed to and had indeed listened to Melainie's covers quite a few times and shared it with the music director etc. Only they know for certain precisely how true that was...although their comments point strongly to it being true.

I really enjoyed Melanie's interpretations of songs... made them almost like entirely new songs to my ear that didn't need to be compared to the originals.. they were different creations to a degree. I have them on my phone/music player and listen to them all the time (I go for 45 minute walks in the early morning and after dinner every day.

I do think it was inspired by Melanie's distinct rendition The thing is, Melainie's rendition might have been partly inspired by another on the web, making it like unpeeling an Onion if you tried to give "shout outs" to the whole chain. It all depends on the particular circumstances involved and only they know what they leaned on most.
It sounds like they did give credit, but xFactor didn't air it.

Not surprising. It wouldn't shock me if these two make it to the live rounds. They wouldn't want possible front runners to be copy catting people from The Voice.
Some people on Twitter are saying Danie Geimer sang "Haley's" version of House of the Rising Sun.

Ok that chick just copied @HaleyReinhart's "House of the Rising Sun" arrangement note for note. #XFactor

@My_intuition69 she's good but she's doing @HaleyReinhart 's version of HOTRS

Quote:Holly Hargrave ‏@hollayyyyy 4m

This girl on X factor is singing your version of House of The Rising Sun @HaleyReinhart #sick


It does sound like Haley's version. Haley has set the standard by which others try to emulate. (whether they realize it or not) I wonder what version of this song Danie listened to while practicing for XFactor??? Sleepy
Yea, she definitely did.

I think Haley made a huge impact on fans of these shows, because I hear her versions a lot. (Or I hear contestants talking about what huge fans they are of Haley. Fifth Harmony did this.)

People who audition now are fans of these shows. In a lot of ways, Haley had a bittersweet fairy tale run. She was the ultimate underdog.
