X Factor 2012: Pink impersonator Zoe Alexander causes mayhem after audition goes wrong!
Zoe Alexander is set to be featured on tonight’s X Factor show and we don’t think she’ll come out of the experience looking too good.
The Pink impersonator tried out for the ITV show recently, singing her idol’s hit single ‘So What’ and looking very much like the American star. She admitted beforehand that she wanted to shine in her own right and move away from being known as a Pink wannabe, however perhaps turning up styled like the mum of one and singing one of her best known songs wasn’t the best way to do it.
After her rendition of the song, the judges looked a little unimpressed and Tulisa said that while she ‘liked’ Zoe’s image, she felt like she was just watching a Pink impersonator and not a singer in their own right.
Louis Walsh added:
‘It’s the X Factor not Stars In Your Eyes.’
The judges agreed to let Alexander have another chance and this time she belted out Emeli Sande’s ‘Next To Me’ for the panel.
However, this wasn’t well received either and afterwards Nicole Scherzinger said:
‘I like your energy and you have a pretty good voice but you need to find yourself as an artist.’
Gary Barlow agreed and said:
‘You need to find your own lane and what’s right for your voice.’
Louis Walsh wasn’t anymore complimentary and added:
‘Your vocal was very average. i think in time you could be great but you need to work on it.’
The feedback, although not terrible, apparently wasn’t what Zoe wanted to hear and the hopeful burst into angry tears shouting ‘You made me sing it! You told me to sing a Pink song.’
She continued wailing:
‘I wanted to be me.’
The judges insisted that they hadn’t directed her at all and in fact helped her out by giving her the chance to sing a second, non Pink, song. But Zoe was having none of it. She started to smash up the stage, pushing two camera men, shoving past Dermot O’leary, swearing at the judges and even bringing her dad out to get in on the act too, after she threw her mic in their direction.
Tulisa yelled at her to stay on the stage, later claiming that she was only defending poor old Louis.
Tune into the X Factor tonight to see her full audition, her temper tantrum and the judges’ reaction. We can tell you this, Dermot did not look pleased and neither were the police when they got involved!
