This year’s X Factor Bootcamp stage was vicious! Spread out over two days of TV shows this weekend, it was full of tension and tears. Firstly, not all the acts had a chance to sing on their own as they were divided into groups on the first day. Secondly, some of the singers walked out including the talented Tammy Cartwright (the one whose nan also appeared on the show) and the intriguing Robbie Hance (who’s homeless in real life). And finally, some of the acts were worse at bootcamp than at auditions as the pressure got too much. Drama!
Both female judges knew they had to make an effort to stand out among such interesting contestants so this week bright clothes were needed. The gorgeous new judge Nicole Scherzinger was a vision in white in a pretty white top and trousers while Tulisa was striking in a red playsuit. However, the real focus was still on the contestants as we were all tuning in to find out who is through to judges houses stage. This is the latest news:
Lucy Spraggan (above) was one of the stars of the bootcamp stage as she was allowed to do two auditions after initially struggling to sing without a guitar. She’s joined by Ella Henderson, Amy Mottram, Jade Collins, Jade Ellis and Leanne Robinson. Their category will be mentored by Tulisa.
Rylan Clark had a lot of episode time as he was shown arguing with fellow contestants. Despite this, he’s still through along with James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas, Nathan Fagan-Quayle, Adam Burridge and Jake Quickenden. The lucky boys will be mentored by Nicole Scherzinger.
Chimney sweep Kye Sones put on a brilliant show and was the first act to be named in the over 28s category. He’s joined by Melanie Masson, Nicola-Marie, Brad Shackleton, Carolyn Poole and Christopher Maloney. The over 28s have never won yet but they have a good chance this year as they will be mentored by Gary Barlow
It was a lucky break for GMD3 as they had to do a sing-off against Triple J to earn their place in judges houses. The other groups through are Mitsotu, Duke, Poisonous Twins, Rough Copy and KM1. Judge Louis Walsh is in charge of the groups this year.
I cannot wait to see what happens at judges houses next week. Let the drama continue!
