X Factor 2012 bootcamp: From Above struggle with Payphone & Jade Ellis messes up ”I Won’t Give Up”
For every brilliant performance on tonight’s X factor show there will be one below par and one of those who didn’t shine to the best of their ability were girl group ‘From Above.’
They take to the stage to sing at the final stage of bootcamp but as soon as they start the first line of Maroon 5′s Payphone, singer Daisy appears to be straining her voice, causing Gary Barlow to stop the music and suggest they start again.
Nicole Scherzinger asks the ladies:
“Do you need some water?”
Finally they start again but it still wasn’t perfect. Gary stopped the song after only one verse and afterwards the singers confessed:
“Everytime we step on stage we just seem to get the shakes and either speed it up and it’s just frustrating.”
“There’s barely a voice between them.”
Next up was fan favourite Jade Ellis, who wowed the panel at her first audition. The mum of one told producers:
“Being at bootcamp is absolutely amazing. It’s hard to believe that you’re still here when so many talented people are not.”
“I’m a little bit unsure about the lyrics but I’m sure it will be fine when I’m up there.”
“I have a daughter and she’s six years old, it’s a bit hard her not being here. I’ve never been away from her so it’s quite difficult. I just want to give her a cuddle. The competition itself does mean a lot to me. I think having my daughter and knowing I’m a good mum has given me the confidence to come and do it. I just want to do the best I can do for her and for me. I don’t want to feel like I’ve let her down or myself so I’m just trying to focus.”
Jade took to the stage and sang ‘I Won’t Give Up’ by Jason Mraz for the judges but she forgot her lines and paused, apologizing and finally regaining her composure and finishing the song.
In the end, it was a pretty decent rendition, but she seemed uncomfortable and nervous and it certainly wasn’t the best we have seen from Jade to date.
Afterwards Gary said:
“There was something not right there.”
“Yeah, that wasn’t her at her best.”
“I just had a complete brain freeze. I just lost the words I feel gutted, I’m absolutely gutted. I didn’t do the best I can do so I’ve just let myself down 100% but I am hoping that I might get another chance, I don’t want it to end.”
