X Factor 2012: Nicole Scherzinger promises that James Arthur will sing his own songs soon!
Nicole Scherzinger has insisted that she will let James Arthur sing his own material on the X Factor this year.
The singer songwriter faced criticism from Gary Barlow when he performed on the first live show on Saturday and took on Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Stronger’ as part of Heroes week.
Gary felt that James was losing his integrity by singing such a pop styled song and commented:
“I want to give you a bit of advice, you came with bags of integrity, retain it. I can see the edges rubbed off.”
Later in the evening James insisted that he was true to himself on the show and claimed that Gary was guilty of ‘tactical judging.’
Speaking on The Xtra Factor tonight, Nicole Scherzinger promised supporters that James would retain his integrity and would be following in Lucy Spraggan’s footsteps and performing one of his own songs on a live episode down the line. She said:
“Absolutely, James really wants to sing one of his own songs>”
“I was proud last night that he stepped out of his comfort zone and he did a Kelly Clarkson song and was still able to do his thing to it. He added his own authenticity to it but I can’t wait for that moment.”
Do you think James should stick with the covers, or would you like to see him performing an original track next week? Leave your comments below…
