X Factor 2012: Jade Richards returns for another crack at the whip!
Jade wowed audiences at her Glasgow audition last year when she sang Adele’s Someone like you, and impressed judge Kelly Rowland so much that she broke down in tears.
After Rowland regained composure, she told Jade that she had actually dreamed about someone singing that exact same song the night before, and that she knew when she heard the song begin that it was going to be great, but that not even she could have predicted how special the performance would be.
Jade sailed through the audition and boot camp stages, and was not only a firm favourite to go on to the live finals, but was also one of the bookies favourites to win the entire series.
This shocking decision sent the media into a frenzy, with many suggesting it was because show producers thought her lifestyle (she apparently dabbled in some paganistic rituals and was a bit of a goth) was not the right sort of image for the family show (need we remind you that these are the same producers who allowed the like of Jedward and Wagner be exposed to us through our tellyboxes?) and she was quickly tagged as the next Gamu and deported back to Glasgow!
There followed a national outcry, with many fans of the show demanding that she return to the show, but show execs wouldn’t budge and so Jade left the competition, vowing to return!
And return she has! According to audience members who attended the Scottish tryouts yesterday, Jade has auditioned for the show again when the tour took the judges back to Glasgow, and so hopefully we shall be seeing her back on our screens very soon!
