Well done to the producers for giving us a fantastic opening weekend of the X Factor. It was entertaining, the judges were fun and most of all the talent was smoking. Oh, and not bad ratings either.
So after last week's immense talent, whose up first...
Well Chloe O'Gorman and the King of the yodellers, Barclay Beales, got the first two individual yesses. Even our judges got the yodelling bug. Maybe the new craze. Maybe not!
So whose up next? People of the UK meet Thomas Feeley....wake up everyone, I said meet Thomas Feeley. How can I put this Tom, well I would stick to the DJ day job.
Relly C with one of the best hair styles I have ever seen, was given her moment and she did not disappoint. The potential is there and it's huge potential. In the words of Louis, I like her.
Shelley Smith and Ryan Mathie sailed through their auditions. Good starts. Let's see what they can do in the arena.
Tree surgeon Stuart Manson gave his best shot and it wasn't good. I hope he has better luck chopping the trees. Next.
For those who don't know, I am based in the North East, so when Abi Alton from Guisborough walked into the room for her audition, I was hoping it was going to be a positive outcome. Well, Louis and Nicola must of being watching something else, because I thought it was a very good audition. I would sign Abi to my talent agency in a shot.
Ahead of Colin Stacey's room audition, we met his cat 'Patch'. Well he was in a frame but the picture looked purrfect. Colin also name dropped a few X Factor winners, but I can't remember a Joe McEldey winning?
Anyway, Colin put the picture down on the floor in the room and sang to his framed cat (I'm not making this up). Well, um, it wasn't a CATastrophe but it wasn't PAWsome either. Sorry.
Jade Richards returned for her third attempt and for the life of me, I can't see why Jade hasn't already made the live shows, great natural voice, likeable girl and passionate.
Next up was the Rocky of the X Factor, Melanie McCabe, back for her fourth attempt. Great audition, effortless vocal, if there is any justice this girl has to make the live shows. Go Melanie, I am already in your corner. Good luck.
