X-factor UK: Brendan Murray makes it to the semi final and the 6th week of live shows

The X-Factor UK is in its 5th week of live shows , one step away from the semi final phase. Brendan Murray, the Irish Eurovision 2017 representative, is still one of the contestants making another impressive performance.

The Irish Eurovision 2017 representative, after going through the 4th live show of the competition, came back on X-factor stage in “Big Band” Saturday night, where all song choices were accompanied by a 30 member orchestra. This week Brendan performed Say something by A Great Big World .

After his performance he received from the judges positve comments outlining how the song fitted perfectly his voice. The 4 judges expressed their admiration for his 2nd successive good perfmormance, despite receiving in past shows critical comments, he pulled himself up and gave these two last week the best of himself on stage.


After Saturday’s live perfromances, this 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 (after a new public voting) 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 receiving all the necessary votes to reach the semi final phase and continue in the 6th 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.
