It’s the second week of auditions for X Factor, Simon Cowell’s reality competition show from across the pond. One of last night’s stand outs was the afro-sporting, Jamie Archer, 33, who got the audience on its feet performing King of Leon’s “Sex On Fire”. (Or, at least that’s what it looked like, who knows with the show’s heavy-handed editing…)
It’s not Jamie’s vocals so much that impressed, but his ability to engage the audience and draw them into his performance. The jury is out for me still, on this guy–I’m not sold on his vocal ability, and have questions about his versatility–but he’s promising.
Ha ha at Simon singing along! I’m surprised he knew the words. Jamie advanced to the next round, with enthusiastic yeses from everybody on the panel.
