Miss Frank : That's Life after X-Factor

It is always tough after the highs of X-Factor for so many contestants, the emotional high followed by what can only be described as public rejection when you are voted off.

Many never recover and it was widely expected that Miss Frank would go that way because the girls were "forced" together by the X-Factor judges, so it is good to see them still going strong.

Graziella Affinita, Shaniece Davis and Shar Alexandra, who make up the three-piece group Miss Frank, were at Asda in Garston on the outskirts of Watford where they performed a live set organised by Talk Talk.

An excited Helen Eamus, 22, said: “I really love X Factor.

“I’ve been following this series and have supported the twins John and Edward and Miss Frank. I couldn’t wait to see the girls perform here today, it’s brilliant.”

Children and adults scrambled to get as close to the trio as possible, as the girls performed a rendition of Aretha Franklin’s “Respect”, Rose Royce’s “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore” and their audition-song Frank Sinatra's “That’s Life”.

Putting her own spin on each of the tracks, Graziella Affinita sang her trademark raps halfway through the songs, while the other girls accompanied her in soulful harmony.

Ian Frampton, 33, who was accompanied by his children, said: “We were shopping in Asda and heard that the girls would be performing.

“I’ve been watching the X Factor this year and thought the girls were great. They shouldn’t have left this week, not when you look at who they were up against. They were fantastic then and they’re fantastic now.”

After their brief gig, Miss Frank happily signed photos for eager fans as they expressed their happiness at performing in Asda, but their disappointment at having to leave X Factor early.

Graziella Affinita said: “It’s great to perform here in Asda, the show went really well and we’ve had a great reception. Of course we would have liked to have carried on with X Factor, but it’s just the way it is.

“You could say it’s a bit like the song we just performed, “That’s life.”

Miss Frank Next Sugababes?

With Keisha gone, Amelle on a indeterminate break the Sugababes are kind in a limbo. Could there be a gap in the market? Well Louis Walsh thinks so.

Louis reckons Miss Frank can be next Sugababes. He said of the three girls Graziella Affinita, Shaniece Davis and Shar Alexander who entered the contest as solo singers but were put together as a band by the judges: "If they want to stay they will get a record deal. Some one's watching out there, and will see they are a ready-made group."

Miss Frank Song for Big Band Weekend revealed

In a leak this week apparently Louis Walsh has revealed the song choices for his groups as part of Big Band week. He made it known that girl group Miss Frank will be singing the Frank Sinatra all time classic "That's Life

The leak happened when Louis Walsh let it slip during an interview on Irish TV station TV3. He also revealed the Twins John and Edward Grimes will be singing Rick Martin's "She Bangs".

The song for Miss Frank seems inspired and I think they can carry off. The Twins I am not so sure, but then they aren't really about music are they.

Other song choice leaks for this have come through although these are unconfirmed.

The Over-25s
Danyl Johnson - Feeling Good (as performed by Michael Bublé)

Jamie Archer - If I Can Dream (Stereo Mix) (Elvis Presley)

Miss Frank at the Judge's House

They came in to the X-Factor boot camp as three individual singers and left as a group and their final test to reach the final was at Louis Walsh's lakeside villa at Lake Como, Italy.

Here is how it panned out

Miss Frank are X Factor favourites for ex-Sugababe Keisha

Ex sugababe Keisha Buchanan no stranger to successful girl groups has tipped Miss Frank as potential winners of the reality TV talent show X-Factor. Full report on STV.

The Making of Miss Frank at X-Factor Boot Camp.

First they were three girls Graziella Affinita, Shaniece Davis and Shar Alexander at boot camp, the X-Factor judges thought individually they were not good enough, but as often happens in the X-Factor it was suggested that they came together as a group.

That's how Miss Frank came about, and you kind of knew if the Judges brought them together then it was almost certain they would get through, especially as the group section this year is fairly poor.

Here is how it all happened.

Miss Frank Could Be In for Good Run This Year

The bookies are betting on which of the groups will last the longest in X Factor 2009 and the favourites by a mile are Miss Frank, who look much better than Kandy Rain and John and Edward Grimes despite the fact Miss Frank were formed on X Factor 2009 by three rejected solo artists.

Miss Frank are rated at 20/1 with Bet365 and Stan James to win X Factor 2009 and just 4/7 with Paddy Power and Blue Square to last the longest out of the groups.
