Dami Im – Bridge Over Troubled Water – The X Factor Australia – Full Video

Dami Im sang “Bridge Over Troubled Water” on The X Factor Australia 2013 Live Show 6.

This competition is running out of reasons to still be happening, since it’s impossible to fathom that anyone can stop Dami. Seriously, in the second week, Jai said he’d like to get a standing ovation every week, and Ronan admitted that this wasn’t possible for any singer. Yet here we are, and Dami has deserved every standing O she’s gotten. One would think at some point that Dami constantly getting standing ovations and going at or near the end would backfire (in much the same way always going at or near the start might hurt THIRD D3GREE), yet she’s only gotten more popular with each week it seems, and with good reason. This was a killer vocal, and the judges should probably be more embarrassed than they are that they initially cut her. Ronan can say “Thank God we found you!” all he wants, but the fact remains that she nearly wasn’t here at all. I mean, as good as Matt Gresham was, he wouldn’t have been doing this.

    My cynical side is starting to wonder if they knew before that Matt wouldn't be able to advance, cut Dami, and then that made her seem like so much more of a surprise discovery.....Add to that the incredible 'makeover'....oh man, I'm starting to sound a little nuts!

    Hopefully, the voters don't fail her. We've seen a lot of frontrunners become the shock elimination either because the voters got complacent or because that's all they are: vocally good but not much of an artist.

    This was a good performance very solid. I do hope she wins because she has been so consistent and her voice is stellar.
