YAY, the auditions come to a close tonight! Boot Camp airs next weekend. Don’t forget, the first episode airs on FRIDAY. It’s a three-episode weekend.
Charlie Martinez – You & I (One Direction)
He works for US Air Force. He calls Simon “sir” and Simon keeps correcting him “Simon”. It’s a pretty straight up cover. He gets positive comments from everyone but Mel B. Charlie advances on 3 YESes and a NO from Mel.
Ten Senah – Mamma Knows Best (Jessie J)
She tries to get the audience to join in and Mel absolutely hates her. She still advances with 3 YESes.
Michael Marouli – Ten Feet Tall (Afrojack)
Nightclub performer, 30. Mel B destroys him.
Janet Grogan – Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For (U2)
26, from Dublin, Ireland. She gets great response from the crowd. Mel B is finally pleased with somebody! 4 YESes.
Charlie Jones – Wannabe (Spice Girls)
He is only 14. He certainly makes “Wannabe” his own. 3 YESes (I think Cheryl was not present.)
Helen Fulthorpe – Try A Little Tenderness (Otis Redding)
Her son signed her up for the show. Helen sounds like she really knows what she is doing. Great audition. Standing ovation from the crowd and Simon is smiling. 4 YESes
Tom Mann – I Want It That Way (Backstreet Boys)
He was sent home in Boot Camp last year. He sings an original song and sounds terrible. The crowd goes wild for him anyway. The judges decide to give him a second chance and he sings “I Want It That Way”. The crowd still loves him. He passes with 3 YESes (Mel B is missing.).
Jake Sims – When The Sun Goes Down (Arctic Monkeys)
The three judges think he is the perfect package. Simon says he has “lead guy charisma”.
Jordan Morris – All of Me (John Legend)
Another pretty boy. This one is a ballader. 4 YESes.
Jake Quickenden – Who You Are (Jessie J)
25 years old. He is nervous. His goal is to emotionally connect to the song, but he hates being vulnerable. His performance is nothing special, but the crowd is responding. The judges also eat it up. Simon says he doesn’t like repeat auditioners. In the end, Jake advances with 4 YESes.
Leah Kennedy – It Will Rain (Bruno Mars)
22 years old. She starts singing, but the song goes nowhere. Louis and Cheryl say YES, Mel B and Simon NO.
Lola Saunders – Natural Woman (Aretha Franklin)
20 years old, fish monger. She brought her grandparents for support. She is very emotional and Mel B comes on stage to give her a hug. Then she starts singing and the crowd comes alive. The performance is nervous, but her pipes are good and should only improve with X Factor’s vocal coaching. Lola advances with 4 YESes. Simon says as she leaves: “That’s the sort of person you want to win the show.”

EXTRA from THE XTRA FACTOR:
Dean ‘Deano’ Bailey sings Peter Andre’s ‘Mysterious Girl’
Snappy Spice! A feisty Mel B proves the hardest judge to impress… but is FINALLY blown away by Janet Grogan’s ‘poised and confident’ performance on The X Factor
She was one fifth of the most popular girl band in history, so you can hardly blame Mel B for having high standards on The X Factor.
The former Spice Girls had little patience for nothing but the best on the final batch of auditions before boot camp at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday night’s episode.
Much to the entertainment of her fellow judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Louis Walsh but to the horror of the contestants, Mel B didn’t hold back to calling it like she saw it.

‘I can’t imagine going from gutting fish to standing in Wembley. I’m so proud you’re from Newcastle’: Cheryl Fernandez-Versini praises X Factor hopeful Lola Saunders
Her nine to five might be the very modest job of being a fishmonger.
But on Sunday night’s episode of The X Factor and after a few false starts, 20-year-old Lola Saunders transformed into a true superstar.
Despite the positive feedback she received from the judges during her last audition, Lola almost let stage fright get the better of her.
