Andrea Faustini – Try a Little Tenderness (Otis Redding)
This time, he is wearing a shirt with pugs. His parents are here and they only speak Italian. Andrea starts singing and the audience comes alive immediately. When he finishes, people are on their feet. He gets 3 YESes from Louis, Cheryl and Simon. Mel B is absent.
Rouge Kiss – Fancy (Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX)
5 piece girlband. Simon hated everything about their room audition and from the clip it’s easy to see why. For arena audition they toned it down somewhat, but this is still a mess. Cheryl thinks they have potential and Simon thinks only one of them has talent. Mel B likes them too. Louis thinks Cheryl and Mel B know more about girlbands than Simon. Simon says NO, the other three YES.
Overload – No, No, No (Original Song)
5 cute boys. Simon wants to go to the bathroom and Cheryl wants this audition to last forever. Mel B wants Simon to wet his pants, too. Finally, the boys start singing and the song isn’t bad at all for a young boyband. The audience likes them, too. The judges are impressed, too. Simon wants them to be more original … It’s clear Overload want to be One Direction 2.0. But I think Simon sees $$$$ signs. The boys sail through.
Lottie Lou – Sheezus (Lily Allen)
The crowd boos her. She is gone.
Carly Cunningham – Don’t Speak (No Doubt)
Boos again. She is gone.
Stevi Ritchie – Don’t Stop Me Now (Queen)
Oh dear. This time he brought his daughter Summer along. She is really cute. The guy can sing, and he gets the audience going. But he is no rockstar or popstar in the making. Basically a regular middle aged guy singing karaoke well. His dancing is beyond embarrasing. That might work for a Saturday night entertainment show, but beyond that? All 4 judges give him a YES because the audience liked him.
Kayleigh Manners – Here Comes the Sun (The Beatles) / Your Song (Elton John)
Simon is late, so it’s only Mel B, Louis and Cheryl on the panel. Kayleigh reveals she has no experience. YIKES. She is really nervous. She starts the first song, but stops. The judges want her to focus. She drops the guitar and starts singing the second song. The audience encourages her. To be honest, I think Kayleigh won’t go much further in this competition. But the judges put her through to the next round.
Lauren Clarke – Love Song (Sara Bareilles)
Simon is back. Lauren is really pretty, but this performance isn’t good. I guess she is gone?
Ed Goacher – Just The Way You Are (Bruno Mars)
Shown briefly, another bad audition.
Jay James – Fix You (Coldplay)
Former soldier is back. He brings his young wife and baby daughter along. Good vocal. The audience likes him. He is sailing through. Standing ovation from the judges. 4 YESes.
Arena auditions continue next week.

And loveable office worker Stevi Ritchie makes a comeback following his disastrous audition which saw him forget half of the words to Olly Murs’ Dance With Me Tonight, and just boogie on the spot instead.

Injured navy-officer Jay James receives standing ovation from entire audience as the second night of The X Factor arena auditions continue
As The X Factor continue with their quest to find someone special, it was down to Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Mel B and Louis Walsh to whittle down its long list of hopefuls.
Receiving a standing ovation from the entire arena, Jay James, 30, nailed his rendition Coldplay’s Fix You during the second set of arena auditions on Sunday night.
‘Jay, you know what we thought of you in your first audition, now listen to this… That’s exactly what we’re looking for. That was a stunning performance,’ gushed Cheryl.
