As we approach this year's round of auditions, let's look back at previous years - who are the best auditions for you?


The ones that immediately stick out to me are Cher Lloyd and Louisa Johnson. The former was such a shock for me, as she was so different to anything we had ever seen on XF and burst onto the stage with such confident and sass, and killed an all round performance when normally in the auditions you just see them stand there and sing a ballad laugh.gif Louisa was just instant winner from the first note really, by the end of that audition I knew she was the winner and I don't think I can say that about any other contestant. Of course we had obvious winners like Joe, Ben and Matt Cardle but they started strong and emerged as obvious winners by about live shows (even though Ben was shite x), Louisa I just thought nah nobody can beat her laugh.gif

Mums on the Run and the funeral singers. A nod to chicken factory guy and Dawn the jockey.

In terms of good auditions, Cher, as you say, and Danyl Johnson probably. Also Diana Vickers auditioned well.

Louisa Johnson, ech. Talk about being set up from the off to force a win.

She did a good audition, that doesn't mean it was any kind of fix from the start! tongue.gif

I completely forget Ella was on X-Factor for some reason! It's such a good full circle for Missed to be featured on her debut album too.

Missed was stunning, her audition is defintiely up there! She's one of the only original song auditions I really liked, I feel that too much of the time they're about dead relatives and the sob story is really milked, I know Missed is about her grandad but she didn't seem to milk it so much and just sang it.

All this talk of Ella, she needs to come back soon. I loved her first album.

Omg yes *_*

I loved Alexandra Burke's second audition, gave me goosebumps head to toe. As did Leona's!

Cher Lloyd was great and very different to what I expected. Was a breath of fresh air.

Jahmene Douglas killed "At Last" as well. His riffs, runs and range in his audition *_*

There's been some really great auditions over the years.

I have literally not watched this in about a year or two, I need to watch all his performances again. I do remember the first time I saw him though being firstly 'YAY! GO WITHAM!' (Cause I live literally 20 minutes away from there) and secondly thinking 'He's gonna do well'. 8 years later I was proved very right on that front. Everything he projects on this audition is still true of him now as a person and as a performer.

I think for me, for a lot of those same reasons, JLS' audition stands out in my mind as a great one. From the off you could tell they had great chemistry, they knew what they wanted to be and where they wanted to go to achieve that. And I loved their song choice as well. I'm still annoyed TBH that by the time they came to split - and in the time since - the show has practically airbrushed out their success they had. The success they and Alexandra had put it on the map before 1D were even a thing.



In terms of more jokey auditions...it has to be 'Ant & Seb'. It's just so funny and especially when Cheryl loses it midway through when they start going 'Come on move your body' biggrin.gif



Oh and also Holly Jervis and Ariel Burdett. Scarily funny (for different reasons)

That Ethan guy who Derren Brown fancied did a great first audition tbh

But Cher Lloyd HAS to be their most famous one

She only revealed it was about her Grandad to Tulisa backstage afterwards iirc so wasn't exaggerated to the judges in the slightest to get sympathy/votes, not that she needed them!

Some of those are hilarious! Swearing Rachel was certainly a lowkey favourite laugh.gif

Yep that's how it should be imo! Not to detract from awful things people have gone through and I get that these experiences can shape you but it's not Surprise Surprise. If you're doing a song, let it speak for itself instead of the whole act being built on a sob story.
