George Gerasimou and Tulisa clash in shocking X Factor audition

George Gerasimou x factor

George Gerasimou shocked The X Factor tonight with quite possibly the most aggressive audition the show has ever seen. Even Dermot O'Leary stepped in warn the 19-year-old from London after he launched into a rant with new panellist Tulisa Contostavlos.

Before his audition, George recalled: "I auditioned in 2009 – I was in a group called Triple Trouble. I’m still friends with one of them. Everything went wrong, it was a train wreck.

"From the day I saw myself on TV, I knew I had to change things. I was really quick-tempered back then. I came across as unapproachable, aggressive, not the sort of person I am.

|This year hopefully people can see the real George, not that clown from 2009. This time whatever comments I get I’ll be able to take without getting angry. I’ve grown up, matured, I just want to do something with my life. Music is my passion. I want people to forget what they saw before - I’m ready to show the real George."


Stepping on stage, George told the panel: "I’m here to clear my name.

"Back then I was really quick tempered, I wasn’t really thinking properly. It’s been two years since then, I’ve matured fully and I’ve got my singing together. I want to do things properly this time.

Performing Gimme Everything, the judges quickly have enough of George’s voice and stop the music. Asked why they've cut him off, Tulisa explains: "Because we think we’ve heard enough to judge you on."

And as George started to complain, Kelly reminded him: "This industry is full of people who will have different opinions, there are people all over this building with opinions, and you’re going to hear a whole bunch of them.

"If you can’t take the heat baby then you need to get out of the kitchen."

Gary quipped: "When you said earlier you’ve matured, in what way have you matured? Things mature nicely like a red wine or a cheese but you’ve matured like a bad curry mate."

While Tulisa told him: "I don’t think that you’ve changed at all. You came and stood right next to me, and I felt a lot of aggression off you. You’re very angry."

Louis added: "George, you’ve no likeability at all. And your singing was not good."

But then George turned on the panel.

"OK, I respect your opinion," he began "Now it’s time for my opinion. You will vote… in good time. Tulisa, if you’re replacing Cheryl…

But an angry Tulisa interrupted: "We don’t have to sit here and listen to you any more, I don’t want to hear another word of it."

George continued: "You’re some scumbag trying to replace Cheryl! Some scumbag from the block!"

Tulisa shouted back: "You’re here to be judged, and you know what you’ve just done? You’ve embarrassed yourself to the entire nation. I worked myself up from Camden Town and that’s why I’m here today."

Security then stepped in to escort Gorge from the stage, where proceeded to call Tulisa a dog. He added: "I didn’t think dogs were allowed on the X Factor or I would have bought my frickin’ Alsatian.'"

"Watch your mouth," Dermot warned. "Don’t call girls that."

With security kicking him out, we're fairly certain George hasn't made it to bootcamp...
