X Factor: Bianca Gascoigne falters while Jade Collins flies
It was all about the ladies on tonight's X Factor
Bianca Gascoigne made a surprise appearance on tonight's X Factor. Known for her saucy stint on Celebrity Love Island she was determined to prove that she wasn't a celebrity seeking wannabe but serious talent.
"I just hope they don’t think I’m just doing this as another show, this is really what I want, I love singing and hopefully they can see that when I walk on stage, you know that I really do care and that I’m going to be nervous because it means so much to me."
Bianca performed I’m Going Down by Mary J Blige and although the audience were impressed (as was I) the judges were not - booooo!
Gary: If I could compare you with the other 25 year olds we’ve had it’s really not good enough. What the other 25 year olds have is that they’ve been singing like all their lives, seriously singing. At 25 you should be a lot better than that. In general it was a bit of a mediocre audition.
Louis: Bianca you haven’t got a bad voice, you’ve got a great image you know but it’s tough because we’ve got some amazing singers in this category already.
Tulisa: I appreciate and admire the fact that you’ve come up and basically wanted to try something different and change the public’s perception of you and I think you’re a cool girl I’ve met you out a couple of times but I’ve got to be honest i don’t think the vocals were strong enough for this competition.
It's a shame, I mean if Gazza can top the charts with Fog on the Tyne then the world should be her oyster!
Tammy Cartwright's one to watch. It was impossible to fathom how such a powerful voice could come from such a little woman!
She performed One Night Only by Jennifer Hudson and from the moment she opened her mouth, the judges couldn't take their eyes off her.
Louis: Tammy that was a power house performance. You were born to sing.
Tulisa: I think you are so likeable. You have great stage presence, great song choice and you rocked that stage.
Gary: Tammy, oh my god you can sing. You’re 33 and the fact that we haven’t heard of you before, it’s puzzling.
Sensational comments from the judges and it was no surprise. The audience loved her.
And finally there was Jade Collins. One word... wow!
This Belfast waitress wasted no time and belted out her audition like a pro. Her rendition of Sweet Dreams by Beyonce Knowles was both awesome and emotional. She was obviously nervous and in tears by the end.
Jade admitted that she'd love her dad to hear her sing, but sadly he's in and out of her life. "He took the wrong path and wasn’t really there for us. I don’t want to cry. He was in and out of jail his whole life and just wasn’t there for any of us"
Louis: Jade, you are so emotional. It’s like you’ve got so much pain inside.
Jade: I’ve always dreamed of being here and now I am, it’s just hard to believe.
Gary: Jade I’m going to tell you off slightly, you didn’t warm up properly this morning; you were struggling with some of the high notes.
Tulisa: Jade we always look for a spark when someone steps on stage, where you just go there is something here and it’s something special and I saw that in you today.
Anastacia: You are 17 and you have so much passion in your heart.
