ANOTHER X Factor comeback as act who previously made live shows returns

The X Factor judges

The latest act to make a comeback on The X Factor 2016 has already made the live shows.

So far this series has been the year of comebacks with acts including Emily Middlemas, The Brooks, Gifty Louise Agyeman and Anelisa Lamola all returning after previous attempts.

However none of them have actually made the live shows before, unlike Bradley Johnson.

He auditioned back in 2011 as a soloist but ended up becoming part of new group Nu Vibe who made the finals in Tulisa's category alongside Little Mix.

However while Little Mix went on to win, and have enjoyed huge success afterwards, Nu Vibe bowed out in week two and split soon after.

21-year-old Bradley from St Helens returned to the auditions this year, explaining casually: "I just fancied it, I thought I'd come and have a sing song."

After Bradley performed It's All About You by McFly to the panel, of which only Louis Walsh was on the show in 2011, the comments were slightly awkward.

"You know what I'd say to you, put you in a group," Simon Cowell remarked. "Based on that I have to say no."

Sharon Osbourne agreed: "The first thing I'd say is you need a group around you."

However Nicole Scherzinger gave Bradley hope: "I'm going to give you a chance and say yes."

"I will bring it to the table, I promise," Bradley told the judges.

"You know what we're looking for, you've got to bring more," Louis Walsh said, "but I'm prepared to give you a shot."

With three out of four yeses, Bradley is through to bootcamp once more.
