Tonight on FOX the X Factor USA returns with it’s final audition of week 2 on “Auditions #4”. Contestants continue to audition for the judges in hopes of winning a $5 million dollar recording contract. If you missed last night’s auditions#3 episode you can read our full and detailed recap HERE!
On last night’s show it was a fabulous night, with a few hits and misses by the judges. The stand-outs came in the form Diamond White and Panda Ross. Diamond White, a 13-year-old struggling teenager, did a rendition of “It’s A Man’s World” by James Brown and boy, did she blow the roof off the X-Factor arena. There was a mature gospel touch to the song, which made this one of our favourite performances to date. The judges gave her 4 out of 4. We’re giving her 10 out of 10! Diamond, that was exquisite!
The most memorable performance of the night came in the form of Panda Ross, a 40-year-old woman with an infectious attitude and stellar vocals. She did a rendition of “Boring It On Home To Me” by Sam Cooke. Her performance was strong, over-the-top and OMG. What did you think of Diamond and Panda’s performances? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!
On tonight’s show, the second week of auditions come to a close. I wonder how many more talented singers our judges Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, LA Reid and Simon Cowell will find tonight. Of course I am also looking forward to seeing the crazy ones :-)
