Auditions

Sherilyn Hamilton-Shaw moves Cheryl to tears

40-year old Sherilyn Hamilton-Shaw’s life was changed forever after her husband suffered an accident at work, leaving him paralysed.

After telling the Judges her story, will they be left impressed by her rendition of Whitney Houston’s I Didn’t Know My Own Strength?

Clue? Her performance leaves Chezza very weepy…

Do Unit X have the X Factor?

Despite having an X in their name, will their rendition of Beyoncé's Pretty Hurts impress the Judges enough to get four yeses? Or will it be another knock back for the trio?

Let's just say their audition didn't go completely to plan, with Simon branding them the "most miserable group" the show has ever seen! Oops...

Is Tori V Musekiwa all the Judges need?

44-year old travel agent Tori V Musekiwa is hoping to impress the Judges with her version of Whitney Houston’s All The Man I Need.

In the words of Simon, “that didn’t go well". Better luck next time, Tori...

Joseph McCaul fights for his dream

Joseph McCaul from Ireland calls himself the ginger Stevie Wonder and is convinced he can win. Having previously auditioned for the show in 2012, will this year’s panel like his cover of Sam Cooke’s A Change Is Gonna Come?

After Simon calls him a a “horrible performer”, can Joseph save his X Factor dream with his rendition of Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody?

Is Ollie Marland the man for the Judges?

Former Port Vale footballer Ollie Marland is hoping to score three yeses from the Judges, but after Simon branded his version of Wham’s I’m Your Man “out of date” has he blown his Boot Camp chances?

Or will the Judges give him that all important second shot?

Chase Mystery is too corny for Simon

18-year old Chase Mystery certainly has the moves, but what will the Judges make of his rendition of Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel?

Clue? Simon uses the word “corny” with Grimmy left wanting something new…

The Judges take a DTOUR

After claiming that they are a mixture of Boyz II Men and One Direction, we had high hopes for DTOUR’s audition, with the six-piece group covering Chris Brown’s She Ain’t You.

After their efforts were branded “a mess” by Simon, it was then time for manager Debbie to step in and (quite literally!) sing for their supper.

Will the Judges be won over by their version of Charlie Puth’s See You Again or will it still be a no for DTOUR?

Anton Banaghan takes on George Ezra hit

Anton Banaghan is originally from Romania but was adopted by an Irish family. The 21-year old has never had a singing lesson but wants to sell records.

Will the Judges be impressed by his rendition of George Ezra’s Budapest? Let’s just say Rita loved it (and he even managed to get a hug from Simon!)
