X Factor 2012: Billy Moore was terrible at ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ but at least he knew it!
41 year old Billy from Newcastle was one of the low points in terms of talent on tonight’s X factor show.
The singing hopeful took to the stage as he tried out for the ITV show, telling Gary Barlow that he was ‘sweating buckets’ because of the heat and his nerves.
He then launched into a pretty poor rendition of ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey, which he started about ten bars too early. Exclaiming ‘dammit’, Billy stopped crooning and the judges allowed him to restart.
At least he knew he was bad and after his first line, he admitted:
“I’m killing this, sorry about that, I’m absolutely murdering it, it’s not happening. It’s not working here like. Sounds awful that.”
Luckily for him the audience came in, sang the entire first verse, until he admitted defeat and said:
“This was a bad idea.”
Gary Barlow said:
“I have to agree with you, sounds like someone has slowed the tape down, every time you started singing.”
“I can’t understand it, because when I was practising in the car park this afternoon it sounded fine!”
Louis Walsh added:
“Billy, it just didn’t work!”
