Episode Quotes
Louis: (to Misha) Every week you work it, you've got a very unique voice and you're a great entertainer.

Tulisa: (to Johnny) You took the bull by the horns this week and you did a proper rock song. You say you never sang rock before but you sang it like a proper rock star. I don't need to comment, just listen to the crowd.

Gary: (to Janet) That was simply beautiful and gorgeous.
