The X Factor: Best So Far!

There’s just one week left of X factor auditions – before we see the hopefuls attempt to make it through Boot Camp. Over the past four weeks we’ve seen a fair amount of bad, deluded and just plain weird contestants – but there’s also been LOADS of brilliant acts. So many, in fact, that its hard to remember all our favourites!

So, to refresh your memory we’ve compiled a list of the TEN best X factor auditionees so far! Have a look and tell us if you agree – do you think this lot will make it to the live shows??

Janet Devlin


The Irish teenager wowed the audience with her version of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ and is tipped as a hot favourite to win the show already! Definitely one to watch.

Craig Colton


Factory worker Craig has an amazing singing talent – but he’s also funny! The 19-year old had the judges in stitches before he began his audition.

Amelia Lily Oliver


The judges couldn’t believe that 16-year-old Amelia was so young – with such a powerful voice! The youngster reminds us of a young Christina Aguilera.

Luke Lucas


Luke definitely wins the award for the most pop-star sounding name in the competition so far – but he can also really sing! The 16-year-old, who admitted he is ‘in love’ with judge Tulisa, surprised us with his stage presence and amazing voice. The new Beiber?

Jade Richards


Jade bought Tulisa, Kelly AND Louis to tears with her rendition of Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’. The Fife-born star even had us a bit choked up with her beautiful voice. We’ll eat our own hat if she doesn’t make it to the live finals!

The Keys


We have to admit, we haven’t seen many outstanding groups on the X factor this year – the Keys are definitely our favourite in this category so far! Their original audition, which mixed together three different songs, sets them apart from the competition. We want to see more!

Marcus Collins


Hairdresser Marcus looked a complete natural on the X Factor stage, and the judges agreed. Tulisa even said she felt as though she’d come to watch the hopeful in concert! With that kind of confidence, we’re pretty sure Marcus will make it through Boot Camp.

Lascal Wood


College student Lascal had never sung in front of his mum- until his X Factor audition! Well, we’re sure she’s one proud mum now! Lascal clearly impressed the judges – and seems like a very nice bloke. We can’t help but root for him!

Misha Bryan


We watched in amazement as Misha Bryan wowed the X factor judges with her rendition of Aretha Franklin’s ‘RESPECT’. The teenager oozed confidence and it was easy to see the diva-in-the-making sailing through the competition and making it through to the live shows.Go Misha!

James Micheal


Poor James was so nervous that we were worried he wouldn’t even be able to perform! Luckily the Liverpudlian managed to get through his audition – and the judges loved it! Gary even said he was a: “recording artist waiting to be recorded.”

What do you think? We can’t wait for next week’s show… in fact we’re obsessed with all things X Factor!! Luckily for us, Gala bingo have TONS of amazing X Factor themed games for you to play!

The X Factor: Saturday’s best auditions – Watch them again here, and tell us who YOUR favourite is!

We may have mentioned this before, but we were a little bit dubious about the future of the X factor without Simon, Cheryl and Dannii. That was before the show actually started! Saturday’s show was even better than last week, with auditions that had us laughing, gasping, and ok, shedding a little tear now and then. […]

22-year-old Craig Colton – who works in a biscuit factory – surprised his parents who were watching in the audience, but had no idea their son would be auditioning! The looks on their faces were priceless – and Craig’s rendition of Adele’s ‘Hiding my Heart Away’ had his mum – and us – getting all choked up.

THEN there were The Keys. Aged between 23 and 25, this boyband had the audience up on their feet with their tuneful and original mix – which included a rap and a Destiny’s Child song! Bands traditionally don’t do very well on the X factor (apart from One Direction of course) but we think these guys might just break that mould – love them!

Finally, we saw 19-year-old Misha Bryan– who was raised by her aunt after her mother abandoned her at 3 months old. Yes, we know it’s a sob story – but it worked for us. Her AMAZING version of Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’ had Kelly Rowland up on her feet, and most of the audience!

Watch Misha’s audition right here!

Have a look at these three performances and tell us what you think! Remember to look out for a poll on our Facebook page later, as we want to know who YOU think gave the best audition this week!
