Judges Comments

After his performance this is what the judges had to say:

Gary: “John that is one of my favourite songs of all time, and I hate people singing my favourite songs, because it always lets me down, you absolutely nailed that vocal!”

Tulisa: “You have a beautiful tone, and I can see that you’re very nervous, but that can be worked on. You know, you can see that emotionally you’re very connected, your vocals were very emotional, I think you’ve got a lot of potential.”

Louis: I was surprised; I wasn’t expecting you to have such a very unusual voice. I think we’ve found somebody that could actually make great records.

    So what happened to John Adams? I had him tipped to win. What a great voice. The judges are being idiots this year. They keep throwing out the best of the x factor contestants. Please may someone sign John Adams up, he’s got a terrific voice.
