X Factor 2012: Melanie Masson wants Gary Barlow as a mentor!

Melanie Masson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor singing sensation Melanie Masson has said she wants Gary Barlow as her mentor on the show.

Melanie wowed the judges at auditions in Glasgow with her performance of Cry Baby by Janis Joplin.

Louis Walsh told Melanie on last night's show: "Melanie where did that voice come from and where has it been? You’re 44, this is what this show is all about, finding somebody as amazing as you and giving them a chance."

Tulisa added: "You came on stage and you seemed really gentle and then all of the sudden this fire and this soul and this diva came out of you. You owned that stage you absolutely rocked it - that is how you do an audition. Amazing."

However despite the praise, Melanie claimed that she wanted Gary Barlow as her mentor if she made it past bootcamp.

She said: “I am a big Take That fan. I’ve had a crush on all of Take That at different stages of their careers.”
