    • Ian Dickson: Kurt, I think in the music industry you'd be quite a marketing challenge because you have the voice of an angel but you look like a hobbit! (on Kurt Nilsens performance)

    • (on Kelly Clarkson's performance) Kuba Wojewodzski: Kelly, I would like to find you under my Christmas tree.

    • (on Alexander Klaws' performance) Simon Cowell: Without being rude, it was terrible. You must have an amazing personality, because I think part of the reason people win these shows is based on personality. We can only judge you based on what we're seeing tonight.

    • (on Ryan Malcolm's performance) Elias Rahbani: Believe me, I will buy your CD.

    • (on Heinz Winckler's performance) Kuba Wojewodzski: The only things keeping me here are gravity, the market force of the Pound, and the fact that my plane leaves tomorrow. It's absolutely not my cup of tea. Thank you.

    • (on Peter Evrard's performance) Nina De Man: You didn't fit the mold, but you carved your own mold, and I'm proud of you. (on Peter Evrard's performance)

    • (on Will Young's performance) Kuba Wojewodzski: Your artistic choices say more than your voice, and it sounded like Mr. Bean singing Jim Morrison.
