X Factor 2016: 'Ariel the mermaid' sings for the judges in latest ridiculous audition


After the living doll, it was a mermaid through the doors of The X Factor 2016 auditions next.

Magical, mystical and a shape shifter, Ariel went before the judges in an audition cut from the main show at the weekend.

"You look fabulous," reacted Nicole Scherzinger as Ariel walked in. "You look like a mermaid."

"I am a mermaid," declared Ariel.

After Sada Vidoo the living doll, Simon Cowell didn't bother to argue this time as Ariel got on with her performance.

Singing her own song, Ariel explained: "I'm a song writer, it's called Crash and it's a love song."

After the performance the panel weren't jumping out of their seats, it's fair to say.

Louis Walsh said: "Aerial, I loved the song and I love the act. You made an amazing effort but for X Factor I have to say no, but I like you."

Sharon Osbourne agreed: "It has to be a no from me."

Nicole added: "I think for the show, I'm going to have to say no."

And finally, Simon concluded: "Maybe we'll see you next year."

Despite the rejection, Aerial vowed to carry on and said she would "keep swimming through the waves of life"

The X Factor 2016 auditions continue this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
