Nathan Abraham Lauren Fagan-Gayle
London rapper and singer Starboy Nathan turns up on the X Factor 2012 auditions tonight.
The singer has already scored two Top 40 hits, including one just last year.
He also previously appeared in E4′s Big Brother Celebrity Hijack as a housemate.
Nevertheless, this year X Factor is open to anyone, including those already with management deals.
Speaking last year ahead of the release of his second album, Nathan said he’d happily take part in The X Factor if he felt it would improve his career.
He told the Metro: “I’ve done so many talent shows and I like competing, so if I didn’t have a record deal I’d have 100 per cent done The X Factor.”
Nathan – full name Nathan Abraham Lauren Fagan-Gayle – performed for the judges at EventCity in Manchester.
As well as facing Take That’s Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and guest judge Mel B, Nathan also performed for close pal Tulisa.
The X Factor 2012 airs at 8PM tonight on ITV1.
