Talia Dean has become the second contestant to leave ‘The X Factor,’ following a whirlwind journey throughout her time on the show.
On Sunday’s Live Show, Talia impressed the Judges with her version of popular One Direction hit ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ – accompanied by a beautiful piano arrangement, along with her phenomenal and pure vocals.
Talia initially impressed judges at her first audition with her version of ‘I Put A Spell On You.’ At the Six Chair Challenge stage of the competition, she was given a chair, then forced to give it up, but was brought back.
At mentor Nicole Scherzinger’s Judges Houses’ stage, she sang ‘Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?’ by Culture Club. However, Nicole decided that she, unfortunately, wouldn’t be taking Talia through to the Live Shows.
Due to the public wildcard vote, however, Talia was voted back – talk about a rollercoaster journey!
