The X factor 2010: Paije Richardson Velvet Voice Shun Through on Saturday Night

Paije Richardson

X Factor wildcard returnee Paije Richardson delivered a wonderful vocal performance with his rendition of ‘Killing Me Softly’ by the Fugees on Saturday night.

Paije will not be everybody’s ideal popstar but there is no denying he has a good set of pipes. However, I think he would be much better of just standing still on stage and deliver a performance without running around.

With the right materials he could go a long way in the competition, and if reports are true that he has lost his job in the cinema, he has a lot of reasons to do well on The X Factor; I feel he might be one to watch this season.

Here is what the judges made of his performance:

Louis: From you’re very first audition I saw something in you and you’ve proved you got something. I’m so glad Dannii gave you a second chance. You’re a soulful, cuddly little Luther Vandross.

Cheryl: You came out tonight and you owned that place as a wild card. You sing like a diva with soul and passion and I absolutely love that about you.

Simon: I was praying Dannii would bring you back as wildcard. What’s fantastic is you’ve come back without an attitude you’ve got something rare which is you’re infectious, and you sang that really well.

Dannii: Welcome back, it’s so good to have you here. Everyone loves you.
