BWW Recap - Last Night of Auditions on THE X FACTOR - Episode 6
It's the last night of auditions on The X Factor! Tonight, we finally find out which category each judge gets to mentor for the rest of the competition.
But first, the last few auditions. 45-year-old general contractor Neal McCumber sings Everybody Talks by Neon Trees and it's really aggressive and crazy. He has tons of wild energy but the vocal isn't good. He even directs his energy at Demi at one point, causing her to freak out and hug Paulina hoping to escape his attention. Afterward, Neal says, "She's like a cute little poodle, I just love her" and pets Demi's hair! Whoa, dude. No. He doesn't make it.
A group of 3 girls from Atlanta, Georgia called Glamour sing the Star-Spangled Banner. Kelly is immediately on her feet after their performance and pays them the highest compliment ever when she says "I feel like I'm looking at a baby Destiny's Child right now." They obviously get through.
Another group called Girls United sing Price Tag by Jessie J and their harmonies are smooth. They get through.
Zach Beeken, 17, sings Chris Young's Gettin' You Home and his surprisingly deep voice gets him through too.
2 guys who call themselves Wild Thingz deliver an energetic performance and make it as well!
Denny Smith, a 69-year-old with an awesome white beard and dressed completely in red, walks onstage and Demi exclaims, "Santa! Oh my gosh, Santa!" He sings Stormy Monday Blues and he has a wonderful blues-y tone to his voice. The judges love it, and he's through!Victoria Carriger, 41, shows up with her 8 kids, ranging from 4 to 20 in age. She says she gave up everything for her kids and I believe her. She tries Because of You by Kelly Clarkson because she says it relates to her situation, now that she's separated from her husband and is raising her kids on her own. Her voice is wonderful! Simon calls the performance "extraordinary" and she gets "yes"s from four deeply moved judges. All 8 of her children rush out onstage for a group hug to celebrate and Paulina yells, "I'm gonna cry!" Everyone dies over how cute Victoria's family is.
Keith Beukelaer is 29 and dressed head to toe in tie-dye (boa included). Apparently, Keith auditioned for American Idol 10 years ago, where Simon told him that he's "the worst singer in the world." He says he's gonna sing Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-Lot... oh no. I mean, he does the job. And I do happen to know every word to this song. And there is nothing I enjoy more than watching Kelly and Demi dance and sing every word with him. The female judges try to get Simon out of his seat to dance too. Watching Kelly and Demi have fun is my absolute favorite! So it's a solid audition, actually. Surprisingly, Keith gets 3 actual "yes"s from Kelly, Paulina, and Demi. It's Simon's turn, and he says, "I also like big butts, so I'm gonna say yes." Wow. And Keith is in!
