So that's how she looks like without those horrible clothes the X Factor stylists made her wear...

The beginning of this song always sounds like the beginning of 'Ho Hey' to me.......so similar. I know there was some controversy about a Sara Bareilles song, but to me it's just like 'Ho Hey'.  I'm not a big Katy Perry fan, so I like this version....

So happy Beatrice is getting more and more exposure. She works so hard and her voice is KILLER. :D Carly was great but she was praised too much that I actually grew tired of her in the X-Factor. I personally like Beatrice more even though she went home way too early.

Queen Bea! The X Factor superstar! She did that

This is horrible.  She sounds okay but is singing lyrics about being strong and a champion very passively and sad... and her eyes look like she is half asleep.  I think she needs to look at lyrics and work on understanding what they mean before she performs a song.

Better than Katy Perry's original?  No!  Not even close.  And since when would anyone consider Bea's total meltdown on X Factor worthy of "superstar" status?  Get real.  I like her and hope she continue to grow, but she has a long way to go.

@Trey_ Ha! I'm always ready for this comment on a Bea post.

@JoeyCumley Some good points, and I do like Katy Perry, but isn't the fact that her past three singles have had the same message an indication that maybe she's not yet entirely at "strong" or "champion" status? Isn't that why they're relatable?

@KatManFoSho Relax, I meant from within the realm of the show. If you haven't noticed, X Factor hasn't produced any mainstream pop superstars yet. Only time will tell if Fifth Harmony, Emblem3, and Beatrice (Who's also signed to a major label) will produce real world hits.

@JoeTranch - Dude, you need to check your meds 'cuz you are definitely out there and way off base.

@JoeTranch  - Of course I noticed, that's why I questioned you calling her a "superstar".  Nothing could be further from the truth at this point ... inside or outside the show.

@JoeyCumley Actually, that's something I often think about. I'm not really sure what kind of songs young performers like this are meant to sing. It's hard to be young and believable without being cheesy.

@JoeTranch @KatManFoSho I actually think that some of Katy Perry's music does show vulnerability, and I often like acoustic sets, but I personally just don't feel that Beatrice is connecting to the lyrics at all.  I also don't see any passion in her when she is singing, it looks like she is acting.  I think she has a nice voice, but I think she's just too young.

@KatManFoSho Because it's so "off base" to think that Katy Perry's music shows vulnerability. Her music is often criticized (In my opinion, wrongly) for lacking depth. I was trying to explain that there was more to the songs than was implied, especially considering that an acoustic take could require a slightly different interpretation. Although, I should have clarified that I didn't mean to refer to Katy Perry as weak.
