The X Factor UK Auditions: Week 1 Recap
Let’s look back at the emotional rollercoaster that was week one!
We’re just one week into The X Factor UK and we’ve already met some amazing contestants. We cried alongside Danny, danced to Misunderstood’s insanely catchy original, and were blown away by Jacqueline. Re-live all of our favorite auditions from last weekend before we dive into another round this Sunday and Monday at 8/7c!
Molly is only sixteen years old and as soon as she started singing, we knew it would be an immediate YES. She absolutely killed it with her rendition of “This is a Man’s World” and reminded us all of a young Christina Aguilera.
Danny Tetley auditioned for Simon Cowell on Pop Idol years ago, but in his own words, nothing happened because of it. Now, Danny is back and better than ever! He brought everyone to tears with his audition and of course, impressed the boss.
When Misunderstood first stepped on stage, they were making up their own words and we weren’t sure if we should take them seriously or not. But once the beat hit, their original song, “Juicy Fruit,” captivated both the audience and the judges.
We first met Anthony Russell last year. He auditioned and made it through to judges’ houses. Unfortunately, he had to drop out of the competition. Thankfully, Louis Tomlinson was there to help him through his personal issues and help him prepare for this beautiful and powerful audition.
One of our favorite things on The X Factor, is when a contestant completely surprises us. Jacqueline stepped on the stage full of nerves, but left with some of the most enthusiastic four yeses of the weekend.
Don’t miss our next round of auditions this Sunday and Monday at 8/7c on AXS TV!
