The bar was set incredibly high in week 1 of The X Factor: Celebrity live shows when Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan performed Eurovision winner “Rise Like a Phoenix” by Conchita! Now, four weeks into the competition, the champion quizzer has performed another of this decade’s winning entries: “Euphoria” by Loreen.
Can the Vixen keep on going up, up, up, up, up, u-up?
After being reinstated to the competition due to popular demand and overwhelming social media outcry, Jenny Ryan has continued to impress week on week.
In week 1, after giving a strong performance of “Rise Like a Phoenix”, she was given the safe seat by her mentor Nicole Scherzinger and was not put up for elimination by the public.
After taking on Shirley Bassey in week 2, Jenny Ryan gave her new-found Eurovision audience another performance for the gods last week: the iconic “Edge of Glory” by Lady Gaga.
This week, taking on another Eurovision classic was a piece of cake for the star of TV quiz show The Chase. Jenny Ryan gave “Euphoria” her powerhouse vocals and emphatically stated her place in the competition. She is currently the fourth favourite with most bookmakers.
The studio version of her performance is available below, if you prefer that:
The X Factor: Celebrity airs on ITV on Saturday nights. UK viewers can catch-up on tonight’s show, and the two previous shows, on the ITV Hub. International viewers will be able to find the performances on YouTube shortly after each show.
