Judges Comments

Gary Barlow: “Hey Sam you know what, I think Leona Lewis is the best vocalist this competition has ever found, and there’s only you that could take on one of her songs, there really is. And this week you’ve really modernized you vocal, you know the modern day divas, they have the strong chest voice, but they also have the falsetto, the head voice and you flipped beautifully between the two. So well done, amazing.”

Nicole Scherzinger: “Sam all I ever care about is if you mean it and if you feel it, because when you feel it, I feel it. I felt you so much tonight, I even love that you had that hiccup at the end because you were so lost in the moment it was beautiful, it was a perfect performance. Good Job.”

Louis Walsh: “Sam Bailey, that is how you do it. Tamera should watch this back and say Tamera, this is what you have to do to be a star. You sang every note note-perfect, you look relevant, you could sell records worldwide. You are the person to beat, there’s no doubt about it.”

Sharon Osbourne: “Guys, Sam, let me tell you I am just so thankful that I have you to represent the girls and the overs. I love you and I just want to say to everybody don’t believe what you read in the papers, we need your votes, keep voting for Sam.”
