Oh I was late this week

at Fleur reprising Bang Bang, she's safe with that, no need to worry.

Urgh at the same old Smile, Cry Me A River though, Ben is so MOTR now that it's painful.

I knew Andrea liked jazz! I saw a clip of him singing at a jazz festival in Italy and he was AMAZING!

Fleur cheating the theme as it's not a Big Band song, and I remember how Jamie Archer was received doing a U2 song in his series on Big Band and I don't see how this is any different.

And Andrea will be slaughtered by Leona fans.

It seems like Simon can do whatever he wants since it's his show :/

And I'm a Leona fan but i hated her version of Summertime, i much preferred Ruth's, but I'm sure Andrea is going to put his name on it.

I think for once they have all got it spot on, apart from Louis! Shows what a naff mentor he is. I thought it would be only the young vs stereo kicks bottom two anyway and it looks like I might be right. So excited for Fleur and Ben my two favourites in the competition I think Andrea is going to be the stand out of the night

Bang Bang is not a big band song, but at least we have been spared Mack the Knife

The best version of Summertime I've heard on a singing show is Fantasia from AI, hopefully he does something similar to that.

It's annoying because if Lauren, Ben, or Andrea did their own style of Music on Big Band they would be crucified, especially by the “uptempo” crowd.

really, nobody cares

Fleur would never enter into a world of releasing big band music, and I wish the UK's fixation with tedious, soulless pudding-faced crooners like Buble and Groban would piss off.

the theme, really, is that they're all going to be performed by a live band there on the night. Forcing them all to sing songs that were out 60 years ago is neither productive nor interesting.

It doesn't matter what genre they're going to go out into after the show though, it's about there being a theme and people sticking to it, they should be able to show their versatility.

Look at the backlash Tulisa got when she gave Little Mix a Kesha song on rock week, there was uproar, so i don't see how it's fair for Simon to ignore the theme himself.
