I think this is the final week of auditions.

Chloe Jasmin – Why Don’t You Do Right

She is still playing the part of a posh lady. She serves another saucy number. Not perfect, but of course she is going through. I think her spot in the live shows is secured. She is this year’s Katie Waissel. Simon thinks she has yet to connect with the right song. 3 YESes (Mel B is not present.)

Fleur East – I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Whitney Houston) / Fine China (Chris Brown)

She is a professional singer. She was in a girlgroup years ago on the X Factor and Louis Walsh voted them off in favor of a joke contestant Chico. She first sings the Chris Brown song. She can also do some dance moves. She gets 4 YESes.

Rachel Rabin (Raign) – Don’t Let Me Go (Raign)

The crazy is back. She is wearing heavy eye make up today and has long and bloodily red claws nails. Seems like is going for a goth image of some sort. She starts with a speech and then asks for a microphone stand. She is singing her original song again. The audience likes the song, but Cheryl still finds her annoying. Simon says that people don’t like her before she sings. Again, Cheryl says NO, the other three YES.

Emily Middlemass – Yellow (Coldplay)

She strums her guitar again. She isn’t bad, but if she plans to strum guitar every week and do cutesy covers of songs that don’t need much vocal abilities … She gets 4 YESes.

Stephanie Nala – Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Baby D)

She is 20 and was in a band that was on BGT – The Luminites. She is cute, can sing and the audience likes her. 4 YESes

Kerrianne Covell – I Know You Won’t (Carrie Underwood)

She still has her job in a shoe shop. Simon’s phone call to her manager worked. When she reveals her song choice, Simon reminds her that he discovered Carrie. Karrianne does a pretty good job with the song and Simon is pleased. 4 YESes

Major – I Love It (Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX)
Female duo. Louis isn’t sure they are girls. They could pass for drag queens. They scream the song. Simon says this was his own version of hell. A montage of Simon’s put downs follows.

Michelle Lawson – And I Am Telling You (Jennifer Holiday)

37, mother of 2 boys. She got 3 YESes in her previous audition (Simon said NO).
She sings and we get lot’s of Simon’s blank face. She does lot’s of runs, but the whole thing just isn’t enjoyable. The judges aren’t impressed. Louis says she can definitely sing, but they aren’t looking for a great singer without any originality. Too overcooked. 4 NOs.

Scarlett Quinn – Ain’t No Other Man (Christina Aguilera)

She is Kitten from duo Kitten and the Hip. Hip is backstage for support. I think this song is too big for Scarlett, but the judges give her 3 YESes.

Ben Haenow – Wild Horses (Rolling Stones)
29, van driver. His performance is a bit too screamy for me, but the audience and judges love him. 4 YESes

The End

Ben replied ‘Yeah I’ve got a long-term girlfriend. We’re looking to get married sometime soon.’

About Mateja Praznik 1060 Articles
I recently graduated from the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana, Slovenia. In my free time I like to read books, watch TV and listen to music. I'm also a huge cat lover. I cover X Factor UK for MJsBigBlog.com.


  1. Raign is an excellent studio singer, not a live performer. Her looks throw people off (she gives off the annoying bitch vibe from miles) and when she opens her mouth to talk, it gets 10 times worse. Her live singing is just average, but her songs are pretty good. She should consider being a demo singer and selling those songs to someone who’ll make them both some money.

  2. Dont agree. I think Reign was happening tho we prefer other styles.

  3. Raign did pretty amazing but she’s just so off putting.
    Ben Haenow is a front runner destined to make the live shows.
    Kerianne Covell has potential.
    Scarlett Quinn I actually liked she’s a quirky powerhouse singer.

  4. Joye77 Carson. you think Richard`s remark is amazing, last week I bought a brand new Mitsubishi Evo after making $9971 this-past/4 weeks and-just over, 10 grand last-month. this is certainly the most-rewarding I’ve had. I began this 5 months ago and pretty much straight away was bringin in more than $81 p/h. I follow the details on this straightforward website,…………….

    http://online. works earn money..<

  5. I like Chloe Jasmin, very fresh singer. The show could use some traditional-pop singers for a change. I hope she makes it through live shows.

  6. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Ben Haenow’s voice. Man, it’s sound something we don’t hear anymore on the radio, I seriously hope he makes live shows then it’ll make it worth my while to watch.

  7. I did not love any of the acts tonight. I particularly thought Ben Haenow, was very average. I dont get the praise. He is out of tune at times. His voice wont hold up when forced to sing with conviction. Think it is one of the few Stones songs that is any good, but I do not think he did anything great with it. Nothing special here.

  8. Simon did say he was off a few times and i thought so too. I think he was super nervous. But his gritty tone and that soulfulness is something we don’t hear very often anymore and alot of quality voices like his get passed by. I hope he will shine more at judges house and the lives. :)

  9. Chloe sounds like she could sing in an old film noir, she missed a few notes but she is very professional in her approach, so not surprised to read that is the case.
    Fleur East-another professional performance but at least she did not heap on the bullshit like Chloe
    Raign-very erratic. at times it sounded like she sang with something stuck in her throat, at times it was excellent. I would have joined Cheryl in saying “No”
    Emily-lovely tone but this seemed similar to first audition. I worry whether her voice will hold up when tackling more difficult songs. Think it will not which is why she ducked them the first 2 weeks, although for sure I would send her through.
    Stephanie did a good job but she did hit a few bum notes and there is nothing original or striking about her voice
    Kerriann-at least made some interesting choices in her approach to the Carrie Underwood song. Good not great, which is about what we got tonight from most.
    Michelle-Its amazing they told her specifically to keep it simpler and she comes out and does something with almost every phrase so much so that a very good vocal, sound jumbled. Shame probably the voice of the night but there is no way you can keep someone who totally ignored your advice, if your going to have to work with them.
    Scarlett-Did not like this at all, Went for the same runs, could not execute when trying runs with high notes. Just not good enough. No chance to get through boot camp.
    Ben-already wrote a bit. Dont like him at all. Missed too many notes, blogger is 100% correct when he goes for power, it is way too muddled as it sounds like he screams the song. Wild Horses is one of the few good Stones songs, so it is hard to do wrong. I understand why they liked him but I dont think he is capable of singing a song in tune. I think they got wrapped up in a good version of a great song, not in a great version of an average song.

  10. Well stated. I still think a great song helped him sound better than he is. We will find out soon.
