It’s 30th September 2017. And tonight is day 1 of X Factor Bootcamp in the UK. The second round screening of auditioners.
There was a lot of talks about this girl from the Philippines called Alisah Bonaobra. Her first audition video garnered quite a lot of views.
There were a few questions raised. But the main one was: Can she top that on bootcamp round?
Alisah’s Bootcamp Audition
Not sure about Alisah”s voice on Bootcamp day 1. It wasn’t anywhere as good as her first audition. Rai-Elle clearly stood out from the other three bootcampers. And was given a chance to go through to the next round.
Simon Cowell was not impressed with Alisah Bonaobra”s performance. She didn’t go through to the next round.
Find out why she didn’t go through. Watch the video below:
Alisah Bonaobra was devastated when she was given the boot. She was in tears.
One of the Bootcampers, Gaga Lord, consoled Alisah but she was very upset. Nicole went up the stage to comfort her. She talked to her but was not very audible.
And then suddenly, Alisah belted out an a capella. Simon seemingly impressed, gave her a pass on this one.
Next clip on the video was backstage. You can see Dermot O’Leary wiping Miss Bonaobra’s tears off her eyes. Sweet.
Alisah will now prepare for the next stage of the bootcamp round – a solo performance.
Alisah: Defying Gravity
After Alisah was given a second chance, she didn’t waste this opportunity. She tried her very best to prove that she”s worthy for a place in the six seat challenge round.
Watch this video below:
Straight after her performance you can hear the audience clapping.
The two lady judges were up on their feet. And you can see that “really pleased” smile on Simon’s face.
Simon asked Alisah if she’s for theatre or for pop. And her answer was she wants to be for both.
Well, what do you think? Was it good enough for you?
There’s a few great singers this year. Has anyone got your pick to be your X factor 2017 winner? Do you think Alisah will make it through to the live show? Give us a shoutout below.
