Another quirky act turns out to have a past...
There’s been quite a few “weird” acts in this year’s The X Factor and this weekend’s (03/09/16) was no exception. Among all the weirdos and sob-stories singing, one of the most shocking auditions was Sada Vidoo, who exists as a living doll.
Perhaps the most shocking thing about Sada is that music mogul Simon Cowell didn’t realise she was a Platinum-selling singer-songwriter in Denmark.
The living doll shocked fans and the judges alike, with Sharon saying during the audition: ‘She’s got to get back to Toys R Us, she’s got to be back in the window by the morning.’READ THE LATEST CELEBRITY NEWS
But they didn’t realise that she’d released a full album and many singles in her native country. The biggest one is called Infernal, which was written for dance act Ten Miles. It was nominated for Danish Club Hit of the Year 2007 and earned her the platinum single.
The song even topped the charts in Poland, Spain, Turkey and Scandinavia.
A source told The Mirror: ‘Sada Vidoo is ambitious and wants to conquer the world with her music. She sees The X Factor UK as a platform to achieve her dream of becoming an international star.’
However, a spokesperson for the show has defended her inclusion: ‘Anyone can apply for The X Factor whether they are professional or amateur, irrespective of their past experience and all contestants are auditioned on merit.
‘Past experience can not always be featured in the programme due to time constraints.’
This comes after it was revealed that singing duo Cosmic Riot – made of Ottavio and Bradley, who fell out over under-cooked chicken – have a long past with reality shows, including The X Factor.
Yikes, it seems like The X Factor’s attempts to spice up the show keep backfiring…
