The latest X Factor 2014 news: Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole return!
Scarlett Quinn makes her big solo return to the X Factor tonight, as she shows up in the third arena show of the series.
The stunning 28 year old singer from Brighton originally auditioned with her husband as part of the group ‘Kitten and the Hip’, however the panel weren’t convinced by their partnership and asked her to return as a solo artist.
Stephanie Nala makes her big ITV return tonight, featuring on their other big talent show!
The 20 year old singer, from Hertfordshire, previously found fame when she perform on Britain’s Got Talent in 2013 as part of a group named The Luminites. She even made it as far as the final.
Michelle Lawson, a 37 year old singer from Liverpool, doesn’t fare too well on tonight’s X Factor show and she doesn’t take Louis Walsh’s criticism very well at all!
Previously, Simon Cowell described her room audition as a wedding performance, so when she returned to sing in the arena with Jennifer Hudson’s ‘And I’m Telling You’, the mum of two was determined to make a better impression.
The X Factor returns tonight with it’s third dose of arena auditions and one of the youngest wannabes to shine for the audience is 15 year old Emily Middlemas. The young student from Glasgow wowed Simon Cowell in the room auditions previously, and he raved, saying she could be one of the really good ones they have found this year.
Kerrianne Covell, a 23 year old sales assistant from Teeside impressed the judges when she first tried out for the X Factor earlier this year and tonight, we’ll see that the audience were massive fans too, when she sang in London’s Wembley Arena this summer.
In her room audition Simon Cowell called Covell’s boss to apologise for her not being at work. He loved her performance back then and on tonight’s show fans will get to see her singing ‘I know you won’t’ by Carrie Underwood.
Ben Haenow, a 29 year old van driver could well be the dark horse of the X Factor series this year and tonight he is set to close the show, with his pretty brilliant arena audition.
The wannabe has previously revealed that he builds on his experience by busking on London’s Southbank in the summer but this evening he’ll be featured singing ‘Wild Horses’ by Rolling Stones to a rather larger audience, in London’s Wembley Arena.
Chloe Jasmine Whichello makes her big return to the X Factor stage tonight, with a bluesy rendition of ‘Why Don’t You Do Right,’ best known as a track from the Who Framed Roger Rabbit movie.
Back in her previous room audition for the ITV show the former model won high praise from Simon Cowell, who loved her throwback, jazz style.
Tonight, before singing for the judges for a second time, the blonde bombshell admited:
Fleur East, a 26 year old singer from East London returns to the X Factor stage tonight but this time she’s on her own.
Fleur was in the group ‘Addictive Ladies’ who got to live shows on series 2 but they were knocked out in week one, when they went head to head with Chico Slimani in the public vote.
We recently published an article (which the boys were kind enough to mention on their Twitter account) in which we mooted the notion that X Factor boy band Overload could be as big – if not bigger – than their predecessors One Direction, who were formed on the show and who have since gone on to achieve such astonishing global success… Read more & comment »
