This week we go from 1 to 2 X Factor UK episodes per week. Another episode of auditions is scheduled for tomorrow night.
Bonus: One Direction – What Makes You Beautiful – Red or Black performance
One Direction performed “What Makes You Beautiful” on Red or Black tonight. The single drops in the UK in a couple of hours, the pre-orders are reportedly record breaking. The boys hold #1 spot on iTunes Ireland. Their music video has over 6 million views on Vevo. Well done, Simon.
Here are the highlights of tonight’s X Factor UK audition episode:
Kendro, male duo. They sing Born This Way by Lady Gaga. Don’t miss the lip gloss moment before they attempt to sing. And they get through to the bootcamp. I miss Jedward. Hell, I miss last year’s Diva Fever.
Samantha (Sami) Brookes, 31. Sings One Moment In Time by Whitney Houston. I think she is this year’s Mary Byrne for Louis Walsh.
Twisted, a girlband. The girls sing Someone Like You by Adele. One of them, Chrissie Pitt, made it to bootcamp last year. This year she is back with 3 other girls and the girlband sucks. But the judges think Chrissie is good and want her to audition as a solo singer. She sings “Forget You” by Cee Lo Green and gets through. How appropriate that Kelly Rowland is mentoring the girls this year.
Lascel Wood, 20. Sings Use Somebody by Kings of Leon.
Wooohoooo. I think this guy will make it to the live shows. Sad backstory, good audition, the judges love him.
