The X Factor – A Mel B and Nat B Catfight.
Brighton Star was an attractive 20 year old musical theatre performer, was causing friction between Mel B and Natalie Bassingthwaite. Mel B thought she was too cheesey, funny I thought I saw some former Spice Girl moves in there. Her vocals were not great and the judges would not have been so positive if she had not been so cute.
Nat B tried to tell Mel B that she did not get musical theatre, implying to her that she does. However then Mel B said “I have done musical theatre as well….Rent on Broadway!”. Sorry Nat B nice try but that does beat Rent at the Theatre Royal.
Brighton was put through to boot camp and with the right song choice might sound OK.
Trent Bell who has turned up every year to audition, again decided to give it another crack. The first year he made it to boot camp, then the following year he made it to New York. So he was back to give it a try again. Have to say he was OK but not memorable, maybe he might get into the One Direction band.
Morgan Sheila from Taree lives in a pub in Redfern and is living off food packages. She gave off a Karise Eden vibe and sound. Not sure why she can’t get casual work, her voice was OK but this was no star in the making.
Tabatha Ramage a 23 year old who can sing disco is Timomatic’s sister. She did not hit it out of the ball park, but with vocal coaching giving her voice bit more discipline she could be an interesting contestant.
Chris Cayzer a 25 year old former soap opera actor in the Phillipines wants to be a pop star. His audition of 1000 miles was ordinary, but considering the lack of talent in the over 25’s so far it was smart to put him through. There was some word that he might be OK in the boy band, but isn’t he far too old?
Carmelo Munzone who looked like he was going to be a joke contestant was one of the best voices of the night as well as one of the best personalities. He is dorky cute he could be the surprise package of the series.
