X Factor 2012: Nicola-Marie wants Gary Barlow as her mentor, despite him saying no!

Nicola Marie (X Factor 2012)

X factor hopeful Nicola-Marie has said she wants Gary Barlow as her mentor.

The 35 year old failed to impress the Take That judge with her outrageous dance moves when she auditioned for the series earlier this month.

After her performance of Tell it to my heart by Taylor Dayne, Gary said: "Wow Nicola, oh Nicola, I don’t know if I liked that or not. It was a bit like the opening to a magic act or something. It’s just not current, it’s not now, people don’t do this."

He added: "I have to say I didn’t really enjoy the audition, I found it dated and ultimately I’d find you really annoying if you were in my category."

However, fortunately for Nicola-Marie the other judges disagreed.

Mel B said: "I don’t know what he’s talking about, I properly loved it, it was full on, yeah it is a little bit dated, so what, but you grabbed my attention."

With three yeses, Nicola was through to bootcamp, but she admitted to being frustrated after not impressing Gary!

"Gary Barlow was one the one judge I wanted to impress. but he was the only one who said no!" she said this week.

Nicola-Marie added: "He thought it was all too crazy, but he did say I've got a good voice.

"I would still like him as my mentor if I get through to the finals!"
