‘The X Factor’ kicked off last week, and all these years later, it can be said that Britain truly does still have a lot of incredible singers and groups that have yet to receive their opportunity. This year’s panel is made up of Judges Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh. In the few shows we have seen so far this series, we’ve seen the good, the bad, the phenomenal and the weird. But we are kept entertained each Saturday and Sunday night!
Here at CelebMix, we review some of our favourite auditions from the second week of ‘The X Factor.’ Check them out below!
1. Rebecca Grace
20 year old Rebecca Grace stunned Judges with her emotional and moving rendition of Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Piece By Piece.’ Sharon described her song choice as ‘beautiful,’ while Simon said that her audition was the first time he had ‘listened to the lyrics like I just listened to them with you,’ also saying that he completely understood the song. We can’t wait to see more from her!
2. Talia Dean
After being encouraged by Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne to follow her dreams, Talia Dean amazed Judges with her audition, whereby she sang ‘I Put A Spell On You.’ Louis described her performance as ‘powerful.’ He also said that the Judges ‘were with you all the way.’ Nicole said that Talia has ‘soul in there’ – she has sailed through to Bootcamp!
3. New Dynamixx
New Dynamixx – comprising of both boys and girls – impressed Judges with their fun audition. They performed a mash up of Little Mix’s ‘Touch’ and Jonas Blue’s ‘Mama.’ Both songs fitted extremely well with each other and we loved their mash-up! The band definitely brought not only talent, but a lot of energy and fun to their performance.
Deanna travelled all the way from Anguilla to audition for the show. She impressed Judges with her version of the Whitney classic ‘I Have Nothing.’ When asked why she had travelled so far to audition, she said that her whole life she had ‘always wanted to be on X Factor.’ We can’t wait to hear more from her!
5. Aidan Martin
Singer-songwriter Aidan Martin has definitely been a stand-out audition from this week’s show. He impressed the panel with his original song ‘Punchline.’ The song tells the story of a previous relationship, reducing Judge Sharon Osbourne to tears. Following his audition, Nicole said ‘that song was so revealing and so vulnerable and that takes the most strength and the most courage.’ Simon went on to describe his audition as ‘special.’
