The X Factor – Is Andrea Kaden The Courtney Stodden Of The X Factor?
Is Andrea Kaden the Courtney Stodden of The X Factor? The alleged 14 year old is blonde, wants to be famous, and dresses far older than her years. However is she really 14? A modelling website states she is 17 years old. Star Now website says she is 15, however this information may be old, and her Facebook Page says she is a runner at Hooters. Surely they would not let 14 year olds work at Hooters? I want to see a birth certificate – NOW.
Her parents say they have spent hundred’s of thousands on their daughter’s talent. However Storm (her potential porn name) as she is known doesn’t bother gibbering to camera about how singing and music is her life, she just wants fame and fortune. Andrea also claims she has an album on itunes which has had 100,000’s of hits. I would like to see proof of that as well.
Seriously Andrea could have saved her parents their retirement fund, by marrying a man four decades older then her. He only has to be moderately famous and she would become an international superstar overnight. A DD boob implant might help, but I am sure she has already contemplated that if she is working at Hooters.*
I can see a sex tape in her future if her career stalls. As reality TV lovers will know the Kim Kardashian sex tape launched her multi-millionaire reality career. For the record I can go to my grave without feeling the need to see it. However I can’t take the higher moral ground on this stuff, as I just read this story.
When Andrea/Storm mangled Katy Perry’s Fireworks, I thought it was a set up audition by producers, as they must have had to see some identification. However after her second rendition of a Paramour song I am not so sure, as she sang that quite well.
Natalie Bassingthwaite gushed and said you can win The X Factor. Newsflash to Natalie, she has to get the all important female vote, and she has no chance.
In other auditions:
Lyrical Styles – You have to love a transformation story with one of the duet going from being a factory worker to potential international pop star in three months. And he did have talent. I thought he had a voice like Michael Jackson’s. His partner in singing crime was a good rapper as well. Let us hope a happy ending occurs for the likeable pair.
Medina Begic was a petrified 14 year-old. She sang Power of Love by Celine Dion. Big song when you have big nerves. She hit some big notes but she also missed a few. However she got through to the boot camp. However she was better than Naomi Sequeria who was 16 who looked 12, wearing the pink karate kid headband. Ronan called her pure raw talent. That was a nice way of putting it.
Max was a cutie at 14 from the Northern Beaches sang Mad World – again I thought his voice was all over the place. Maybe the judges can see through the nerves, because my ears are not feeling the love, he was through to bootcamp.
Liz Conde 14 sang Halo by Beyonce also got through on what was an OK rendition of the song. Mel B had looked bored throughout the song and then said how fantastic it was.
Dave McCallum who is 41 felt this was his moment. He had the desperate vibe about him. He sang Closer to the Edge by 30 seconds to Mars. He reminded me of a more sane Altiyan, this was always going to go against him, particularly when he started doing some Altiyan type movements, particularly dancing around the judges table.
You could see the look on the judges faces that said “Oh not another ageing rocker”
Mel B nailed it when she said “I just felt you were singing for you and your ego”.
Ronan Keating called him out about having the lyrics on his hand. He also said “you are in your own bubble.”
He got a three nos. He looked devastated. But he did blow it. Also he the ripped jeans and pseudo mohawk was not a great look. The male equivalent of mutton spice. He was a bit of tool, however I did feel sorry for him.
Josh Brookes who is unemployed in Perth, sang Usher and he did a great job. He was already leading the rock star lifestyle bring two girls to the audition. We will be seeing more of him.
Pamela Cook was a cancer survivor and single mum. She sang Because of You by Kelly Clarkson. Ronan said “You are an inspiration”. She has some strong bits, but she was out of tune in a bit of it as well. But being a cancer survivor she was through. Hopefully she will improve as she is likeable, and there does not appear to be a lot of talent going through to the over 25 group.
*For new readers to the blog I have a policy of trying not bagging out people under 18 however in this case I have relaxed that policy tonight.
