Groups on The X Factor are a bit thin on the ground so far in this year’s auditions, but Times Red appearance on the show tonight may just mark a turning point.
The group took to The X Factor stage in Liverpool and impressed the judges with their rendition of Amy Winehouse’s Rehab..
Times Red consisting of model Staz, 20, Abercrombie & Fitch worker Scott, 25, dancer and DJ Luke, 24 was instantly a big hit with the female judges before they sang a note with Tulisa saying:
“You in the middle, you look a bit like Richard Gere!”
The Geri weighed in, when she heard that Scott worked in Abercrombie and Fitch. She gushed:
“Hold on hold on, girls we are in for a treat because I know what they have to do in Abercrombie and Fitch. The guys have to take their top off don’t they, they stand there with no top on.”
After their performance the judges said:
Tulisa: Guys you have just got raw talent up there, you play guitar, you’ve got beatboxing going on, all of you can sing, good looking lads, what more could you want?
Louis: I think it was a good audition; the harmonies were very good, I see potential here definitely.
Geri: I really loved it and you are my favourite of what I’ve seen all day, I think it’s fantastic, brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
Gary: Do you know what, like Geri said, I thought it was a great audition, well done. It was innovative, creative, musical, it’s just a shame you’re not all better looking really. It was great, I really, really enjoyed it, I love it when the beatboxing comes in, I think there’s something really special here.
