X Factor Tour (The BIC, Bournemouth – 24/2/16) ★★★★☆

By: editor

The XFactor show love it or hate it, I love it. Here we are at the BIC in Bournemouth on a cold Wednesday night waiting for things to happen while listening to piped music, mostly Xfactor connections. A little disappointed no host for the evening; the judges introduced their acts by video.

The show kicked off with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s boy group Reggie ‘n’ Bollie or R’n’B with Kriss Kross & I like to Move it. The whole act was in red and blue including the dancers,  considering the boys came second they were  on the stage a lot, (they reminded me of the  Jedward twins –Xfactor 2009) fun and good entertainment.

Suited and booted teddy bear Che Chesterman sang as flawlessly as you would have expected, followed by a duet with Lauren Murray later in the show, an outstanding performance with spot on vocal to Valerie. Mason Noise, Anton Stephans, and Lauren Murray all had their stand out moment, where is Louisa Johnson?

The other group on the bill, the ever so tiny ladies, 4th Impact brought plenty of professional fun to the stage and did justice to all the songs they sang, and the onstage costume change, one of the highlight acts for me.

Seann Miley Moore – a cross between Freddie Mercury, Boy George and Danny La Rue – is a great entertainer and looks destined for the West End, with an eye-popping costume change and a worthy Life on Mars tribute to David Bowie.

Finally they left the best to last Louisa Johnson set, powerful vocal, flawless, and way beyond her teenage years, a brilliant Billie Jean cover.

All the acts got a great reaction from the Bournemouth punters but the higher pitched squeals of the night were reserved for the boyband force that is R’n’B .

All in all a great show, while the ever-changing, LED-powered backdrops are dazzling to watch, our ears were deafened (very heavy bass)  it’s hard to pick out the artists from the kaleidoscopic nature of the light show, the show was definitely based on R’n’B and Louisa Johnson.

The best high lights for me were 4th Impact and Louisa Johnson

I give this show 4 out of 5 stars;  a little flat in places but  that is no fault of the acts, I would have liked to have seen Lauren Murray sing more than a single song at a time. All in all , a great night had by all and will be looking to next years tour.
