The X Factor 2013 Show Four

Deano, Deano, Deano, oh sorry, you caught me daydreaming about singing at Wembley Arena.  Right, back to audition show Four.

White van driver Shelley Smith was up first, good start, not my cup of tea, but I can't knock the vocal ability and the energy. An audience pleaser. See you at bootcamp.

The nerves must have been fluttering through Jade Richards but boy it didn't show. What a voice. Jade you have what it takes. Keep positive and go for it.

The Dolly Rockers didn't make the grade and it was four no's. Next.

As a talent agency owner, I have so much respect for Melanie McCabe, to keep getting rejected and to keep coming back fighting takes a lot of courage but also shows hunger and desire. You may have guessed, I love this girl, awesome voice, very likeable and one of the best singers in the competition. Five yesses (an added one from me as I am the Fifth Judge don't you know)

The King of the yodellers aka Barclay Beales took to the stage and had the girls cheering. Our Nicole loved it. Barclay was on the 'money' and with four yesses, he can check into bootcamp.

Luke Friend has the look but the voice didn't wow me to tonight. Still good enough to get through though. Tom Mann, also made bootcamp.

Sugary five piece The Europhia Girls didn't impress me in the room and they didn't impress me in the arena. It's a no from me and thankfully the judges agreed. 

Last night Relley C was brilliant. Tonight the song choice and the nerves nearly ruined it and I totally agreed with Nicole, if this would have been her first audition, it would have been a no. Second chance saloon. Let's hope it's not wasted.

North East's finest Abi Alton was last up tonight. It was emotional and Mrs M must have been cutting onions as my eyes got a bit misty, fantastic talent. One to watch. 

Great show tonight and wow, the girls category is so strong this year.

Right, I'm off to practice my yodelling, see you next week.
