[Videos] 'The X Factor' Auditions Part 4: The One Singer to Watch

The strength of any given X Factor audition episode rests heavily on who's featured more: the good singers, the bad singers or the good but not great singers. The season 3 premiere, for example, was heavy on talent. But last night's fourth audition episode, which zipped around from Charleston to New Orleans to Los Angeles all in one hour, focused too much on mediocrity for my liking.  Read More.... //www.buddytv.com/articles/the-x-factor/videos-the-x-factor-auditions-51250.aspx

About Last Night…THE X FACTOR

Once again, I only watched THE X FACTOR, but I still have some things to say about what went down… Obviously, the most memorable contestant of the night was Ashley Williams, whose “I Will Always Love You” was absolutely incredible. But as a whole, while there have been great contestants this season — and I’d [...] //www.givememyremote.com/remote/2013/09/20/about-last-night-the-x-factor-4/

X Factor 2013 Audition: Ashly Williams, “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston

For her X Factor audition, 24-year-old Ashly Williams took on arguably the biggest ballad in the biz and boy, did she hit it out of the park. Performing “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston, Ashly’s tear-jerking performance got a standing ovation from the audience and four resounding yeses from the judges. Simon Cowell even mouthed the word “wow” midway through! You’ve got that right, Cowell! To make her audition all the more memorable, Ashly shared the tragic story of her mother’s... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/tYt4JvysuWY/2013-09-19-audition-ashly-williams-whitney-houston

X Factor 2013 Audition: Andrew Scholz, “Too Close” / “A Little More You”

Well that was a little too close, Andrew Scholz, but we’re glad we got to see a little more you. After coming on a little too awkward with his rendition of Alex Clare’s dubstep hit “Too Close,” Demi Lovato and the other female judges were ready to write this country boy off. Simon Cowell, however, was the voice of dissent. “I disagree with all three of these guys.” While it was "far from perfect," Simon felt Alex had the charisma and the charm to be the X Factor. “It would be crazy to let go... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/4lkX96EhTZY/2013-09-19-audition-andrew-scholz-too-close

X Factor 2013 Audition: Stone Martin — One Direction’s “Little Things”

Look out, Justin Bieber — there’s a new kid in town. And this Carolina crooner not only has your hair swoop — he’s got your sway with the younger ladies! This 14-year-old from Hartsville, South Carolina, immediately made the tweens in the audience swoon and shriek as he sang “Little Things” by One Direction — you know, that one band that began on X Factor UK? Hmmm... Seriously, is anyone shocked that this kid got four yeses? He picks a hit song by a huge X Factor franchise success, comes in... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/fjK_2yopapk/2013-09-19-audition-stone-martin-little-things

X Factor 2013 Audition: Ellona Santiago, “Wings” by Little Mix

Way to spread those wings and fly, Ellona Santiago! This petite powerhouse packed a punch during her X Factor audition and left us all wondering where she’s been hiding! After quietly introducing herself as a 16-year-old from San Lorenzo, California, Ellona launched into pop ballad “Wings” by fellow X Factor alum Little Mix. The student practically growled as she strutted around the stage, working the room and totally mesmerizing the judges. By the end of her audition, you almost had to pick... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/XfHi9RWLwbA/2013-09-19-audition-ellona-santiago-little-mix

X Factor 2013: Watch All Auditions — Week 2, Day 2

It’s time for another night of tremendous talent as auditions for X Factor 2013continue! Last night brought us a few gems, including a sleeper powerhouse in 15-year-old Danie Geimer, who seemed so unassuming until she busted out a soulful rendition of “The House of the Rising Sun.” Before her, Carlos Guevara, whose recently diagnosed Tourette’s symptoms seem to vaporize as soon as he starts to croon, melted our hearts with his rendition of John Mayer’s “Gravity.”But for every Danie or... //feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/rx_mkSspOqM/2013-09-19-auditions-week-2-day-2
