X Factor 2014 - Kerianne Covell

Kerrianne Covell has revealed that she’s still shocked that she made it through X Factor bootcamp and into Cheryl FV’s judges houses lineup.

The singer was a bundle of nerves before she performed for the judges as part of the six chair challenge, but her audition piece was enough to win over the entire panel and the massive audience, so Cheryl adding her to her team was a no brainer.

James Graham, Reece Bibby, Tom Mann, Casey Johnson, Jake Sims, Charlie Jones, Barclay Beales and Chris Leonard have revealed that they were under an incredible amount of pressure to perform, when they were put together at X Factor bootcamp recently.

During a recent interview, the singing funny man admitted that he’s been trying his luck with the single mum and flirted with her the whole way through bootcamp, however it seems the Welsh songstress has no interest at all in a romance.

Fans of the X Factor were baffled by Louis Walsh’s behaviour on the most recent episode of the ITV show, with many asking if the Irish star was drunk when he attended bootcamp.

The former Westlife Boss will head up the groups category this year, but before he took the best of the bunch (at least that’s what the goal was) to judges houses, he had to whittle the bands down to just six during the final day of tryouts in Wembley Arena.

Ben Quinlan has claimed that Mel B bullied him when he last performed on The X Factor.

The Irish singer was featured at the weekend, performing for the judges as part of the six chair challenge.

He was trying to win a spot in Mel’s six seats, and therefore a place in judges houses, but he couldn’t even get to the end of his song before the former Spice Girl put a stop to his music and literally threw him off the stage.

The X Factor - Jay James

This year’s X Factor is absolutely bursting with talent, so much so in fact that during the often brutal and even harrowing scenes we witnessed at Boot Camp and during the controversial Six Seats Challenge, extremely talented singers were ditched as others with even more potential landed places in the final 24.

During last night’s last look at this year’s X Factor Boot Camp and the brutal Six Seats Challenges, we saw judges Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell choosing which singers they would take through to their Judges’ Houses rounds.

But while Louis is facing the fallout from his dramatic choices about his Groups category, for Simon, it’s straight down to business, and among his first acts as mentor of the Over-25s category was to take them to a One Direction concert in order to give them a “reality check” about how much their lives are about to change… Read more & comment »
