X Factor 2014: Raign Rabin talks about THAT audition with Cheryl Cole

Raign x factor

X Factor 2014 contestant Raign Rabin has spoken out about THAT audition on last night's show.

The rather eccentric performer sung Zedd's Clarity for the panel but ended up getting just two yeses after her bad attitude failed to win over Cheryl Cole.

But ballsy Raign stormed back into the audition room to perform her own original song, winning a third yes from Simon Cowell to get through to the next stage.

However it was still a no from Cheryl who really wasn't keen on the 31-year-old.

Speaking about her rather unique audition this week, Raign - real name Rachel - said: "I don't know how that happened. I think Cheryl is amazing. She's such a diamond in the UK.

"I'm definitely apologetic and I hope I can win her round. If you're doing something like the X Factor you have to have determination and drive."

Despite a career in music, Raign admitted to being out of her comfort zone on the ITV series.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "My passion and nerves maybe come across as desperation in an environment like that. I was definitely out of my comfort zone."

Raign's original song Don't Let Me Go recently featured in the hit US telly series The Vampire Diaries, while she's also written songs with Rita Ora.

The X Factor continues next Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
