With Young Men Society suffering a bit of a form slump, other X Factor Australia acts are taking the opportunity to step up. This week it was Christina Parie’s turn to wow us.
This teen has always been good, but given a meatier song choice in The Cranberries’ “Zombie” she became great. I appreciated the stripped back treatment, with Christina sitting at the piano and not a back-up dancer in sight.
I was really impressed by the way a privileged young thing from Australia could give this song about an IRA bombing the right amount of emotional depth. This kid is definitely one to watch.
