We agree with Nicole Scherzinger. We adore Stacy Francis as a person, but her performance of Meat Loaf's 'It's All Coming Back to Me Now,' left too much to be desired. At this point in the competition, Stacy has been spoiling us with high and long notes that proved to bring on the goosebumps at any given moment. Tonight was a different story.
Stacy Francis closed out the performances for the 12 finalists tonight on 'X Factor,' and the 42-year-old single mom blew away her spectators with a powerful rendition of 'Up to the Mountain (MLK Song).' The song, which was originally recorded by Patty Griffin and has been covered by artists like Kelly Clarkson, was the perfect choice for Francis.
Perez Hilton is once again stirring the pop culture pot! The outspoken blogger recently took a shot at 'X Factor' contestant Stacy Francis on Twitter, calling the 42-year-old singer "too old." A full-blown Twitter war quickly ensued, and Adam Lambert came to the soulful songstress' defense.
'X Factor' hopeful Stacy Francis has a big voice. Huge. Like massive. There is no denying the fact that she could rival Mariah Carey in the glass shattering, high octave category. The girl can sing, and she summons emotion from the depths of her core and funnels it through her mouth and in her songs. That said, she is a bit of a conundrum, since she's over 30, is getting a late start and she straddles the line between a few genres without pledging allegiance to any in particular.
Stacy Francis is 'X Factor''s answer to Season 10 'American Idol' singer Pia Toscano in that she sticks to the room-filling, diva-like ballads. Francis has the type of powerhouse voice that could allow her to win this competition, hands down, since America loves an underdog -- and one with talent, to boot. On tonight's episode, she performed Prince's essential ballad 'Purple Rain.'
Tonight on the premiere of 'X Factor,' 42-year-old Stacy Francis truly set the bar for greatness. The single mom of two -- two boys, ages 3 and 5 -- has been a struggling singer for ten years now, and her performance of Aretha Franklin's 'Natural Woman' on the 'X Factor' stage in Los Angeles finally showed the world what a talent they have been missing out on.
