X Factor 2013: Poor James McDonald crashes and burns with ‘Red’ arena performance
James McDonald, a 25 year old bus driver from Nottingham had a hard time on tonight’s X factor show.
The judges wanted to give him a break after a mediocre closed room audition but they weren’t any more impressed when he sang ‘Red’ by Daniel Merriweather in the arena soon after.
Before singing James revealed:
I am known in Nottingham as the singing bus driver. I have been working as a bus driver for the last two years and the passengers get a bit of a bonus with me, because I just love to sing. I sit on a bus and sing to passengers as they get on and now I get to perform to 4,000 people. That’s my dream. If I got a yes today, I would be the happiest man on the planet.
However it wasn’t to be and after his performance, the judges said:
Nicole Scherzinger: You have a nice voice, not the greatest voice that I’ve heard today but a good audition thanks.
Gary Barlow: I have got to be honest, I am a little bit disappointed in that today. You had a lot more to bring from that last audition. Your voice sounded a little bit limited and very generic. That’s not good enough for this competition.
Sharon Osbourne: We are all here as judges looking for someone that is going to help us win this contest. I just don’t think you are up to the level.
Only Nicole gave the only yes to James and so he missed out on a place in bootcamp. Do you think he deserved the response he got? Leave your comments below….
