Ireland: Brendan Murray makes it to the 5th live show of X-factor UK 2018
During the weekend the 3rd X-Factor UK live show took place with Brendan Murray, making a good comeback after last week dramatic escape from elimination.
The Irish Eurovision 2017 representative, after going through the 2nd live show of the competition, came back on X-factor stage on Saturday night, where all song choices were influenced from Halloween. This week Brendan performed Youngblood by 5 seconds of Summer . After his performance he received positve comments from the judges and outlined his improvement from last week’s performance, and that he is finally finding his way and path to songs that fit his voice and presentation.
After Saturday’s live perfromances, Sunday evening the results from the voting were revealed , according to which two eliminations had to take place. The contestant with the less votes went home directly while the next two contestants with the lowest votes had a sing off and the judges were to determine who they were sending home. In case of a deadlock in the judge’s voting the outcome is determined by the public voting.
Brendan, who is part of the Boy’s team, mentor of which is Louis Tomlinson, former member of One Direction, managed to survive this week’s show too and will be present competing in the 4th week of live shows.
Brendan represented Ireland at Eurovision 2017 in Kiev with his entry Dying To Try . Despite his magical vocal performance he didn’t reach the grad final.
