We are back in Scotland.

Eddie Lee (51, Glasgow) – He gets mistaken for Simon often. He brings Simon a bobble head of Simon. Haha. Eddie sings Elvis Presley’s »Can’t Stop Falling in Love« for the judges. It’s very karaoke. Louis says he sounds a lot like Tom Jones. Simon feels drawn to Eddie. He gets 3 YESes. I’m sure he won’t go far.

Saara Aalto (29, Finland) – She is from Finland and She can sing “Let it Go” from Frozen in 15 languages. She sings Sia’s »Chandelier« and she is really good – Nicole comments: “That was so good you make me want to twerk right now, my ass wants to clap for you. You are the bomb dot com.”. She gets 3 YESes.

James Hughes (17, Glasgow) – His whole family is supporting him. He sings Etta James’ »I Would Rather Go Blind« and he has a big, kinda feminine voice. Simon asks him it that was really him singing. Louis calls him “Baby Diva”, Nicole talks about “soul woman in him”. 3 YESes.

Emily Middlemas (17, Glasgow) – Two years ago she made it to Cheryl’s judges’ houses. She was only 15 back then and not ready for prime time yet. She sings Stevie Wonder’s »Master Blaster« for the judges. She accompanies herself with an acoustic guitar. She has a sweet voice and the girl is cute. 3 YESes

Rachel Hooke (45, Leichester) – She is an advanced driver that currently works as a writer. She is also a rambler. She speaks on and on. She sings Meghan Trainor’s »All About That Bass«. She can’t sing at all. Joke audition. It’s a NO from the 4 judges. Moving on.

Abiola Abbicock (42, Hackney) – Another joke audition. Simon can’t keep a straight face.

Kittipos Maspun (23, Thailand) – He sings “Memory” from Cats. He stops and starts over. He stops again, he is terrible. Nicole tries to help him. She helps him overcome the nerves, but he is still terrible. It’s a NO from the 4 judges.

Rebekah Ryan (39, Staffordshire) – She had a record deal at the age of 17. Her single »You Lift Me Up« charted at #26 back in the 90s. She has a 7 year old son and she also lost one son. She first sings Hozier’s »Take Me To Church«. Simon stops her manic performance. She then performs Sarah McLachlan’s »Angel«. She can sing, but I don’t think she is good enough for a major career. She is featured as a feel good story, nothing more. 4 YESes.
