The X Factor is here! HAS YOUR CITY GOT IT? WE ARE LOOKING FOR 4,000 MUSIC FANS TO BE IN THE AUDIENCE FOR THE X FACTOR LIVE AUDITIONS!
Simon Cowell is back as judge on the highly anticipated US premiere of his global television phenomenon, THE X FACTOR. The show is auditioning both solo artists AND vocal groups and the acts that survive will compete for a $5 million recording contract with Sony/Syco! It’s the biggest guaranteed prize in TV history.
THE X FACTOR LIVE AUDITIONS will be visiting cities across the country auditioning both solo artists AND vocal groups. The auditions will be in front of the judges and a live audience.
UPDATE: Ashley is eliminated in 2/25 Top 24 Results night show. We are sad because America didn’t think she was good enough to move on to next week to redeem herself YET gave Haeley Vaughn one more week in Idol! Haeley Vaughn was one of the worst performers on Girl’s night on Tues if not the worst… 🙁
Ashley is in the Top 24!
Name: Ashley Makailah Rodriguez
Home town: Boston, MA
Audition City: Boston
Audition song: She sings Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You,” and wows all four judges.
Fun facts: She’s Puerto Rican but does not speak Spanish. Recently sang for a past Idol mentor, Smokey Robinson at a Berklee College Commencement ceremony.
She’s got the look, the voice, the complete package. Simon Cowell says of Ashley Makailah Rodriguez, 21 from Boston, MA, Berklee College of Music student: “Some people have got it. And I think you may have it.”
My Fox Boston Interview:
It is a relief to note that she is a Berklee student and has the serious singing covered. We were very disappointed with Casey Carlson last season who did a very strong audition packaged with great looks, great voice and personality yet embarrassed herself in Hollywood round (by forgetting lyrics) and the live show! We wanted her to do well…
We have are our eyes on Ashley Makailah. We hope she makes it to Top 10 easy.
The auditions are over. 30 dancers remain from 350, selected to move on to Knicks City Dancers Training Camp (July 7-9). From there, 17 dancers will be chosen for the team, and the 18th member will be left up to online voters to pick from among 5 finalists. Included in the Top 30 is Bronx native, Asia Nitollano, who won the reality TV show Pussycat Dolls Presents: The Search for the Next Doll back in 2007 and became the next member of the Pussycat Dolls.
Rumors spread that she wasn’t the best match for the group, and in fact, after she won she ditched the Pussycat Dolls to pursue her own solo career. After signing with The Inc. Records (formerly Murder Inc. Records), we still haven’t seen a single release… so what is going on? We guess her solo career wasn’t cutting it…
