Shirley Bassey’s granddaughter Tatjana Novak-Kimsey auditions for X Factor
Shirley Bassey’s granddaughter Tatjana Novak-Kimsey has tried out for X Factor this year and will appear on the show this weekend.
The Sun reports that the 17 year old stunned judges at her audition earlier this summer.
A source told the newspaper: “When the judges realised who Tatjana was, they were gobsmacked. They couldn’t understand what she was doing on the show.
“It was quite sad. She had to explain that she hasn’t seen her gran since she was tiny and admits the reality show is her only chance of a pop career.”
Tatjana’s rendition of Faith Hill’s ‘There You’ll Be’ wasn’t up to much and left the judges underwhelmed.
“They weren’t bowled over but they did like Tatjana’s personality,” the insider explained.
To make matters worse, Tatjana doesn’t make it to the live shows, but her Gran does. Dame Shirley has been lined up as a mentor and performer on one of the live Saturday shows later this year.
