I think he will have to take his time with the force

However, i liked so much the episode last night

 

He tried. He screamed, I mean, screamed for real, to ask for people to be quiet and listen to him. I think he was frustrated when he did it.

When he was arguing with morgan he eventually even spoke english.

 

Yesterday night, watching him struggling to speak his mind, I asked myself whether he's used to be treated like a common guy, or even like a loser, or not. Cause we are used to think about him as someone important, some of us worships him, someone else is quite cool to him but still show him some respect, but I doubt that in the industry anyone is in a starstruck. I don't think anyone there sees him like a popstar. I had the feeling that it was more like "yeah, that's just Mika talking, whatever".

I also have the feeling that he gets frustrated when this happens, I already noticed it during The Voice (I would be frustrated as well, it happens to me at times that I speak in a group and no one cares, I think it happens to everyone at least once, but there are no cameras on our faces, so it's less embarassing).

 

However, i liked so much the episode last night

I spent the night wondering what is the boredom LD50 and hoping to be in the surviving 50%.

And here what Mika says to Mario and Emma.

 

first rehearsal in studio with Mario

(Mika introduce Mario to Mel) This is Mario! (to Mario) Mario, I'm curious to listen to you, can we start ?? ...(after the rehearsal) Mario, this is an imprecise performance ... the song is very difficult, but I want to hear the change of voice in all of these points (he sings) ...it is a technical matter ... (to the camera) I can speak with Mario in a very technical way, when he thinks in a technical way, I don't know why, but he gets even more credible ... (to Mario) when I say to you that I want something of simple or straight, it does not mean that I don't want power or energy ... please, you have to use a little more vibrato ..

[Mario says that the song is very difficoult, but with Mika's advices he can do a good job]

 

last rehearsal in studio with Mario

(after the rehearsal to Mario)Yes!!! Please, you have to start over again from here, from this last performance

 

rehearsal in studio with Emma

(to the camera) accuracy, is not a strong point for Emma, because she is very interpretive ... (to Emma) Emma, I love how you're singing, but please: (he sings some notes to explain to Emma the right way to sing them ) ... please you have to be precise with the melody ... the melody has so many movements everywhere...with the accuracy, we can be more clear... [Emma says that the song is difficult, and vocally she's doing things that she has never done before] ... Emma, you have to concentrate, do not waste all these energies everywhere ...

 

(to the camera), the way is right for both of them...we have to give the idea that they can reach the final

very nice article on Edinbourgh newspaper about Emma! :wub2:

 

http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/news/tranent-girl-reaches-final-11-in-italian-x-factor-1-3590960

 

ONE of her first tastes of stardom was treading the boards in a primary school Nativity play in Tranent.

 

But now budding songstress Emma Morton is lighting up television screens in a more glamorous location as she sings her heart out on the nail-biting live shows of the Italian version of The X Factor.

 

The 28-year-old has now reached the final 11 acts on the hit TV talent show after moving to the country five years ago.

 

Emma’s vocal talent is fondly remembered by former primary school teacher Teresa Sharp, who recalls the East Lothian performer’s star turn as Mary in the St Martin’s Primary School Nativity play aged just ten.

 

Mrs Sharp, who retired earlier this year, said: “She was a super singer and she was always a really bubbly little girl.

 

“It doesn’t seem like she has changed much. She seems to be doing really well.”

 

She added: “Emma played Mary in our Nativity play and was a great singer, which is why she got the part.”

 

The singing mother-of-one, who also attended Preston Lodge High School, secured her place in the competition during Thursday’s live show with a stunning rendition of the 1990s ballad I Can’t Make You Love Me by Bonnie 
Raitt.

 

She also garnered plaudits for earlier performances of Pop Porno by Italian pop duo Il Genio and Robin Thicke’s controversial number one single Blurred Lines.

 

During the audition stages, Emma impressed British pop singer Mika, who is acting as a judge in the competition for the first time.

 

The Grace Kelly singer described listening to Emma perform as being “transported to another world” before choosing her to be one of his acts on the show.

 

Speaking during the X Factor, Emma said: “I always sung to myself, but I’ve also had long periods when I could not sing anything because I felt intimidated by other people’s judgments, which were often negative.

 

“It’s been five years since I started singing with the support I’ve found here in Italy.

 

“Maybe the song has always been part of me, I just found my voice later.”

 

Emma has lived in the Italian village of Barga for five years, which has been dubbed “the most Scottish town in Italy”.

 

The moniker has been attributed to the fact that many of the town’s citizens emigrated to Glasgow in the 19th and 20th centuries but their descendants are now returning to their Italian home.

 

Award-winning Paisley singer Paolo Nutini can claim roots in the medieval walled town, as his father, Alfredo, hails from Barga.

 

Emma made a name for herself singing in the town with her Italian partner, Luca Giovacchini – with whom she has a one-year-old daughter, Billie – performing classic Italian songs from the 1930s and 1940s.

 

But the songstress, who speaks fluent Italian, also takes inspiration from a string of icons, claiming her favourite artists include Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Marvin Gaye and Led Zeppelin’s lead vocalist, Robert Plant.

 

X Factor Italy airs every Thursday night on Sky’s Italian language channel, Sky Uno.

I'm watching the Extra Factor cause my bed is upstairs and I'm too sleepy to climb the stairs.

The judges and the host Mara talked and discussed quite a lot and I had the impression that Mika's opinion wasn't respected that much. They were like "yeah, whatever" at times, or didn't allow him finish his speech here and there. Morgan told that Emma sang bad, Mika said she didn't but Morgan basically didn't care and when Mika tried to hug him he shunned him.

I didn't like to see him treated like that.

But I'm not actually focusing on XF, I'm a bit blue and drowsey, so I may have some poor judgement.

 

Morgan was very very angry last night, and when he is in that condition he does not listen to anyone, it is better to let him talk...or...ehm..scream :aah:

However, in general, I have noticed the same thing of you... Mika speaks Italian better and better in every shows (it's awesome, I assure all of you!:shocked:) but he still needs a little more time to comment than the others. It 's normal. And this extra-time is not always given to him, especially when the discussion becomes hot and everyone starts to get excited :teehee:

Sometimes, someone speaks over him, and it is Mika to ask time to answer, explicitly :" you're talking too fast, I don't understand!".

I think he will have to take his time with the force:purse: :naughty::naughty:

However, i liked so much the episode last night, and Mika, once again, was great. Serious, professional, powerful, direct. Very good. :thumb_yello:

 

He tried. He screamed, I mean, screamed for real, to ask for people to be quiet and listen to him. I think he was frustrated when he did it.

When he was arguing with morgan he eventually even spoke english.

 

Yesterday night, watching him struggling to speak his mind, I asked myself whether he's used to be treated like a common guy, or even like a loser, or not. Cause we are used to think about him as someone important, some of us worships him, someone else is quite cool to him but still show him some respect, but I doubt that in the industry anyone is in a starstruck. I don't think anyone there sees him like a popstar. I had the feeling that it was more like "yeah, that's just Mika talking, whatever".

I also have the feeling that he gets frustrated when this happens, I already noticed it during The Voice (I would be frustrated as well, it happens to me at times that I speak in a group and no one cares, I think it happens to everyone at least once, but there are no cameras on our faces, so it's less embarassing).

 

I spent the night wondering what is the boredom LD50 and hoping to be in the surviving 50%.

 

I agree with you, their attitude is annoying.Extra Factor last year it was better: now there's more chaos.

 

After watching these two episodes of the live show seems to me that something is missing. Am I the only one thinking this?

On the last live, yes, a lot of boredom. I liked Emma, (with"I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt) who, yes, got emotional, but her performance has been very moving - whatever Morgan says - , while Mario, re-watching the performance, managed despite the song was technically very difficult. Mika wanted to test Mario’s interpretative skills but it was a risky choice because the song is also little suitable for a television audience, it was so at the Sanremo Festival, even more at Xfactor. This is Malika Ayane at the Sanremo Festival 2010, if anyone is interested:

I'm curious to watch and hear his comments about their performances.

About the others, I think that Victoria makes easy and obvious choices and Fedez, very slyly, does the most commercial aiming to the audience of teens. Nothing outstanding, but so far it seems to work very well for them. Fedez has continued to make his introductions stuffing/filling them with metaphors, written by his group of authors though! (exactly like his friend/buddy J-Ax at The Voice). And how not to notice his incredible coherence: the "closed fist" of the song by Lucio Dalla wasn’t good/ok, but he wore (in the Daily) a red shirt with Mao Zedong! :fisch:

And then there is Morgan.With him is always the same: his choices have much to do with his redundant ego and a bit less to do with his team’s singers, it's always been that way. He confused his groups making things very difficult for them, poor guys, their eyes said more than 1000 words. And when two of his groups went to the ballot, so one has inevitably been eliminated, began the usual ploy/tactic : he made an unpleasant scene with the melodrama of the conspiracy, first attacking the choreographer and then pointing Mika and his team, especially going against Emma - saying that her performance was all out of tune -, out of spite. After all, from the beginning, he is attacking Mika at every opportunity, constantly trying to belittle him and his credibility emphasizing his few mistakes in Italian and contradicting his judgments, as if Mika was his only opponent among the judges. :loco: But is it possible that there is still anyone who believe in what he says and his usual tactics? At some point the puzzlement on Mika’s face was evident. He always tries to say what he thinks, but his professionalism and severity are not always understood and appreciated: he was booed by the audience and criticized on the socials. Someone also called him “pain in the ass” because he made to repeat to his guys the songs several times at the rehearsals. Seems to me that Emma and Mario understand what he says, and they're working really hard. I don’t know, maybe his standard is too high for this program and most of its average audience? The choice of songs is really a dilemma!

Another observation: why 99% of the songs are in English? In two live shows, on 24 songs only 4 were Italian songs (6 out of 30, if we consider all the songs, including those of the challenges to enter or remain in the competition). Very little for XFactor Italia, isn’t it? This matter is very long, but I would like ask to native English speakers what they think of the English of the Italian singers in general and especially that of these guys.
