Alex and Sierra – The X Factor USA 2013 – Gravity – Video MP3

Alex and Sierra sang “Gravity” by Sara Bareilles on The X Factor USA 2013 Top 4 Live Show 7.

So…performance of the season? Seriously, if this isn’t the best of the competition, it’s certainly up there. They earned a standing ovation from all four judges AND reduced both Kelly and Demi to puddles of tears! So yeah, a pretty good night for them all-around: Alex was completely raw and vulnerable, and Sierra was passionate but not overbearingly so. Basically, there was absolutely nothing about this that wasn’t excellent. Of course, what’s funny is that Sierra’S shaky confidence about her singing ability throughout the competition has been well-documented, since she herself explained that she only started singing publicly not too long ago. Yet I’d argue she’s always been the stronger singer of the two. I’d even go as far as to say she’s as strong, if not stronger, than the girls that were in Demi’s category.

    Their audition was very nice and I have been on board since then, I've thought that they'd be Simon's second biggest act after 1D…but did I have any sense they were this good?  Uh, no.    


    Awesome staging and production, Xfactor.  So much better than the Voice.  Now…if you could just replace the dingbat host with Seacrest and get many more quality contestants like these two, you could bring back the vibe of classic Idol….With any luck, Idol will die this year and you'll get many more decent auditioners.

    Please, people, read my comments on your comments. I NEVER said they should be lovey dovey, make out or overdo anything. I just noticed a change in their interaction. Thank you for your input. :)

    Just want to point out, Lazaro beat out Alex for a spot on Idol last year.  Hahahahahahahhaha.  Something seriously demented over there.  This was awesome.  


    I've typed in the comments going back to their early performances on this show that with Simon and Syco on board, they would become massive.  


    All the cheesy elements of this show fall away when the talent is there.  Then some of those things that can seem so corny can become positives.  The show gives the talent a great spotlight, tells their story, and works a lot harder on producing each performance.  


    I've typed before: Alex & Sierra will do better post show than any Voice contestant ever.  And it's true.

    Yes, Sierra has much more range.  


    Funny how all of a sudden, with some actually compelling talent in the competition, XFactor isn't such a terrible show.  


    Simon said that Idol wasn't solid until Clay Aiken came on.  Not a fan of him, but a lot of people liked him; he put Idol over the top.  


    If Alex & Sierra launch as a successful act, Xfactor will begin to pull talent from the Voice and from Idol.  In fact, Idol may die before Xfactor.  The key to Idol was having a record executive as the key judge.  It was about getting a deal.  Who cares about impressing Harry Connick?  That counts for what?

    well... some people do not like to be all lovely dovey in public. they say alot to one anotehr with thier eyes tho......and anyway..... public displays over over cuddling are annoying......... imaghine seeing them like that after every performance week after week.... ugg... they would start to become annoying............


    Carlitto's sob story is getting a bit grating...poor chap..................


    and Jeff with the kid. they use to really annoy the crap out of me


    and Sierra's plastic smile


    Rion with the face pulling

    Please explain to me why A & S rarely, if ever, touch. (Hold hands, hug, high five?) Anything. It seems odd to me. I think they hugged once at the end of a song. I'm serious. If they have such 'chemistry', you would think there would be a little friendly contact once in awhile. Anyone?

    i honestly think they are the best thing that came out of a singing competition this year!

    It was the first time in a long, long time that I feel immediately connected to a live performance. Amazing vocals, amazing chemistry, just a very true, sincere, heart-felt, perfect performace!! God!

    @doobeedoo there's a reason why he wasnt picked for idol..he was meant for X Factor - with Sierra!

    @doobeedoo yes the far more important factor is the post-show career. If A & S do can launch a successful first album, which i think they have very good chances, that would be the turning point of the fate of the show.

    @mockingjay1111No, I just meant the smallest of contact...not cuddling or anything. I'm not feeling the chemistry...I like them, I just don't 'feel' it.

    @mamashmoi They have kissed and hugged and stuff after other performances but I know what you mean. Not as much recently. Maybe they were told not to be too overly touchy since in the beginning they got a lot of criticism for being too lovey dovey ooey gooey.... lols.  Kelly said it was borderline cheesy or something to that extinct.  I don't remember completely?  hehe Who knows? Maybe they just want to be judged as a duo that can sing.  :)  Boy can they sing.

    @mamashmoi They've been dating for two years... I don't think they need to touch every waking second. Also, if you watch their interviews and stuff when they're not in front of stage, they always have their arms around each other (Alex more so than Sierra though). I think it's just that they're comfortable enough with the relationship that they don't need to always be touching.

    @mamashmoi @mockingjay1111 that doesnt matter. you dont have to feel it if you dont feel it. No artists can get everyone's appreciation no matte who they are . you can just enjoy yours that's will be enough

    You're right. I think they even make less eye contact now!
