'The X Factor' Recap: The Girls Face The Four Chair Challenge

October 4th, 2013 8:35am EDT | Andrew Payne By: Andrew Payne

Contestant Danie Geimer performs at the FOUR CHAIR CHALLENGE

Danie Geimer Sang: "Georgia On My Mind" by Ray Charles

Kelly Said: You just sang your face off, momma.

Simon Said: I hope you never change, and I don't think you will.

Kelly Said: I am absolutely blown away.

The Verdict:

In complete contrast to her predecessor, Danie knows exactly how to connect to a song and just pull the raw emotion out of it through her vocals and performance. Danie's got a stellar voice and brings a depth of passion to her singing that's beyond anybody else in her bracket.

She separated herself with this performance and showed the real talent this show has been lacking thus far.

Grade: B+

Result: SAFE

Rylie Brown Sang: "Angels" by Robbie Williams

Kelly Said: I'm just not sure you're ready for this competition.

Simon Said: It feels like everything you did tonight was chosen by your mother.

Demi Said: You have a lot of potential, but I don't think, vocally, that you're ready for this competition.

The Verdict:

'Angels' has almost gotten to the level of Heart's 'Alone' on these shows: It's just a great song choice for everybody to the point that it's impossible to screw up and should almost be illegal. A performance enhancing song.

Rylie tread on the line here, with a slowed down country version of the tune that almost didn't work. IT was a bit slow and muddled at first, but she managed to bring it home with a nice flourish at the end.

The streak continues for 'Angels'. We'll see if somebody better pulls it out in the live shows.

Grade: C+

Result: GONE

Primrose Martin Sang: "Blame it on the Boogie" by Michael Jackson

Kelly Said: This was completely different from what I was expecting.

Paulina Said: I don't know what Demi should do.

Simon Said: That was actually beyond awful. It was seriously seriously dreadful. It was the longest minute and a half of my life.

Demi Said: Just stop.

The Verdict:

Good Lord, Primrose can't dance, Primrose has swag, Primrose is a Kool 'N' The Gang progeny, Primrose has an endless supply of confidence. But Primrose can't sing. Primrose can't sing at all. Primrose got booed after and during her song by the audience. Primrose sounded like somebody performing in a high school talent show who started impressing people and just began to wait for the applause and stopped singing the last verse.
