Nicolo Festa is seen spicing things up at the London auditions, on tonight’s X Factor show.
The Italian stud tells the cameras:
My name is Nicolo, I’m 21 years old. I live in London but I’m originally from Italy. I started singing when I was born. I sing every day, all the time, anywhere. I want to be known as a legend, an icon, someone that gives people goosebumps at the mere mention. Music nowadays is about talentless people. The music that everyone listens to sounds just a like. I cannot tell the difference between Madonna or Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus. Nobody has everything – the look, the style, the attitude and the voice. I think I could be that guy. It’s time to shake things up a little bit. What I think truly is that I’m amazing. Today I’m going to show the judges how big my X factor is.
Nicolo sings A Song For You for Cheryl Cole, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh.
Cheryl: There’s something really charming about you and I don’t know why. I don’t know if it’s the Italian accent or the fact that you’re called Nicolo. I enjoyed your vocal, very diva-ish.
Simon: I like you because you’re weird and I mean that as a compliment. Cheryl’s right, you are a diva. It’s not the best version of the song I’ve ever heard.
Louis: A real diva in the making but that’s what makes you interesting. You’re different, everything about you is different.
Nicolo: As long as it sells record.
He may be a diva but has Nicolo proved he has what he takes to win The X Factor and sell records? Tune in to ITV1 at 7.45pm tonight to find out!
