XFactor 2014: Quirky Abee Howe makes bootcamp despite 'disaster' audition

Abee Howe x factor

Abee Howe has become the latest act to make the X Factor 2014 bootcamp.

It's despite Mel B branding her Arena audition at Wembley a "disaster".

At her first try out, Abee performed a Bob Marley song to get four yeses and huge praise from the panel.

"I think we've unearthed a little diamond here," Simon Cowell said

Mel gushed: "There's something really different about you."

The 16-year-old from Manchester also revealed herself to be a huge fan of Louis Walsh, before returning to sing for the panel at Wembley.

There she first sung Calvin Harris' Thinking About You before being stopped and going on to sing Brandy's I Wanna Be Down.

Cheryl criticised the song choice, saying: "It's hard to get your vibe."

But she added: "I think that the nerves got a hold of you today but I still believe in you and think you've got something unique."

Louis agreed: "You're very bubbly and have a fun personality I think you could be really good."

Simon said her first audition was better, remarking: "You got it right first time," but gave her a third yes.

Mel branded the audition a "disaster", saying no.

But with the three yeses, Abee made it through to bootcamp.

The X Factor 2014 arena auditions continue next Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
