So X Factor is literally our fave thing ever this year. We love the new judges, the talent has been awesome and it makes spending a Saturday night in just not so tragic!
And this weekend was no disappointment! The last in the audition stage was a gooden, wasn't it! First up, Bradley Johnson - what a doll! Expelled from three different schools, this 16-year-old was keen to prove to his teachers that he wasn't just a bad boy - and boy did he prove that! Singing Ed Sheeran's A-Team he blew the judges and the audience away with his raspy, unique voice.
The audience were putty in his hand when he cried his little eyes out after being so overwhelmed with the response. Ahhh!
Next up was 51 year old Terry Winstanle. Worried he was too old, he acknowledges that this might be his last chance and the judges were obviously impressed with his version of Bee Gees To Love Somebody
Kelly said: 'I am so happy for you that you had the courage to come on that stage and follow your dream'
Taken with his old fashioned voice, Tulisa commented 'you just showed the x factor how it’s done old school style. I don’t want to hear anything current from you.'
Gary concurred: 'There’s a reason we have an older people’s category and it’s for people like you.'
On Saturday night we had a little surprise in the form of John Wilding who got through to the judges houses last year but failed to make it through to the live shows. He came on with a whole new look and blew the judges away with his beautiful version of Jennifer Hudson's Love You I Do.
Don't know about you lot but we can't wait until bootcamp next week!
