Many contestants who blew the judges away in their auditions have left the judges disappointed after their bootcamp performances.
For example, Lauren Murray left the judges speechless after her performance of Jocelyn Brown’s Somebody Else’s Guy in her audition.
However, she didn’t manage to stand out in her group performance at boot camp,with Simon commenting on the fact that she “couldn’t be happy” with the part she was allocated.
Another contestant in Lauren’s group who also failed to meet the judge’s high expectations was 30 year-old mum from Scotland Jade McGuire. Jade blew the judges away with her performance of Tina Arena’s Chains but did not reach her full potential in the group’s performance of Michael Jackson’s Man In The Mirror.
Simon in particular was disappointed after the performance, saying “Do you know what’s disappointing? A couple of people who I thought were going to do great didn’t get their chance to shine”
“Lauren, you were the person I was referring to, why did you not do more?”
She responded “It was just hard because we had a group, it was difficult to give everyone at least a line”
“And you were happy with what you had?” Simon asked her, for her to only respond with a shrug of the shoulders.
Tune in to The X Factor tonight at 7pm on ITV1 to see if Lauren and Jade make it through to the next stage of bootcamp.
