No, it’s not Thriller…it’s even better!
Simone Battle is one of the latest singers to get the boot from X Factor. Paula, L.A., and Nicole never saw much in her from her first audition and neither did I, but Simon loved Simone and chose her to be one of his final 5 picks! However, after her live performance of “Just Be Good To Me” by the S.O.S. Band (which was also sang by past X Factor contestant, Cher Llyod, on the U.K. version of the show) on last night’s show Simon sent her home, though home may be just where her music career starts.
Before leaving, Simone’s last words were a promo for her music video and single, “He Likes Boys”. It’s a track that I can hear Katy Perry singing, but it’s not right for Simone at all. I’m not sure what’s right for Simone. She a pretty girl (minus the clunky heels), but other than that there’s not much there as far as a music career is concerned.
Watch the video and tell me what you think. She also has a website, though I have no idea what’s there because it never loaded on my computer, but check Simone out at: www.simonebattle.com
