Anthony Russell Let It Be
Final X Factor UK 2018 tonight , the three finalists, Anthony Russell, Dalton Harris (Louis Tomlinson’s Boys) and Scarlett Lee (Simon Cowell’s Girls) will be singing duets with popular recording artists.
“While Dalton, Anthony or Scarlett have to share the glory, the chance to collaborate with one of the country’s biggest acts on their first ever release is an added perk.”
The Final begins in style as Robbie Williams performs a medley of hits with the X Factor Finalists.
Anthony's homecoming visit
Tom Walker was back on the X Factor stage for the Grand Final, singing his Top 10 hit, Leave The Light On, alongside Anthony Russell.
He cries on the bus with Louis Tomlinson and then he goes to a football stadium with him. Louis says he’s come a long way since he sent that tweet last year. Anthony’s homecoming concert has a decent crowd. He performs Let It Be by The Beatles. Jahmene Douglas sang the hell out of this in 2012. Anthony isn’t nearly as impressive. The entire arena is lit up. A choir joins him on stage. Another B-grade performance from Anthony. Robbie liked it, says that people watch the show to meet people like Anthony. Ayda says he exceeded all of her expectations. Simon says it was probably the most perfect song he could do tonight, loved it. Louis is emotional watching him and watching Wembley behind him, he’s fighting for every underdog.
Anthony Russell perfoms" Let it Be" for his the X Factor UK 2018 live final tonight
The first solo performance of the show set the standard, and set it high! Singing Let It Be by The Beatles, Liverpool lad Anthony has stamped his intentions all over this Grand Final.
Anthony took the advice of Robbie Williams for this song choice, performing the Oasis anthem Don’t Look Back In Anger. A goose-bump inducing rendition, but will it be enough to see him through to the Grand Final?
A knockout performance by Anthony! Singing the Rocky theme tune, Eye of the Tiger, the Liverpudlian lad may well go down as an X Factor heavyweight.
Skipping down the stairs, pirouetting around the stage, Anthony clearly had a lot of fun during this
Viewers react to Anthony Russell Let It Be
Daniel Aimson Anthony trying to fit it. Pathetic how he’s in the final. Why anyone thinks he can sing is beyond me. He was out of tune and he sounds the same all the way through. Not changing a note. The crazy thing is, he thinks he’s amazing. Poor guy.
Vikkie Edwards For the first year ever I don't even want to watch the final. It's a joke, Anthony is only there because of his mentor, he hasn't improved at all and can't sing
Becky Holden I love His voice and how he acts on stage.
Why has he got a sob story? He’s just a real guy with a real life living his dream. Why do people feel the need to be so nasty he deserves to be in the final.
