The last week of X Factor UK season 8 auditions is here.
Natasha Paton Ali, 23, from Swansea
Umm, ummm, ummmm. Is she drunk? She sings “Every Time We Touch” by Cascada. My poor ears … and eyes. This is just embarrassing. Louis sums it up: “I’m not saying no, I’m saying never!”
John Adams, 23, maths teacher
Tulisa thinks he’s handsome. Ohh, yeah. He sings “Cannonball” by Damien Rice. Lovely tone. 4 yeses from the judges.
Michelle Barrett, 31, mother of 4 from Ireland
She sings “All The Man I Need” by Whitney Houston and brings Tulisa to tears: “You remind me of my mum. Just like you she had such a beautiful voice and she didn’t do anything with it and this is a mummy and daughter thing going on. It’s just, you know, like standing in the kitchen listening to her sing, she just had the most amazing voice.” Tulisa’s mother was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizoaffective disorder.
2 shoes, female duo (Lucy Texeria, 22, and Charley Bird, 23), from Essex.
Ugh, fake tan and make up gone wrong. They sing “All My Life” by K-Ci & JoJo. Okay, it could be way worse than this. Kelly says no, but the other 3 put them through.
John Wilding, 18
You might remember him from last year. He made it to Dannii Minogue’s judges houses in Melbourne. In the past year, he reportedly spent 7 thousand pounds on a makeover. Well, his face certainly looks better than it did last year. Much better.
He sings “Love You I Do” by Jennifer Hudson. The audience and the judges give him a standing ovation.
