CBB's Stacy Francis and Bianca Gascoigne both auditioned for The X Factor in the past.

And it's fair to say it went VERY differently for both of them

Bianca Gascoigne

Back in 2012, Bianca took to the X Factor stage at the arena auditions in front of Louis Walsh, Tulisa, Rita Ora and Gary Barlow.


"I love music. Music's my passion... it means a lot to me" Bianca said before she sang Mary J Blige's 'I'm Goin' Down' for the panel and live audience.

Gary told her the performance "was not good enough".

Louis was (slightly) more positive: "You haven't got a bad voice, you've got a great image but we've got some amazing singers already."

Tulisa, who had previously met Bianca, agreed with Gary: "I didn't feel the vocals were strong enough for this competition."

Stacy Francis

A year earlier and over in the States, Stacy Francis belted out You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman for the judges, which included Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole.

Cheryl said: "I was completely an utterly blown away with every single word you sang and I could feel the whole room was willing you to win, you're amazing."

And Simon concluded: "That was one of the best auditions I've ever heard in my life."


Stacy went on to make the live shows of the competition where she eventually finished in 10th place.

As for Bianca, her singing career seems to have ended with her first audition...
