X Factor 2018: Georgia Burgess gives incredible first audition

Georgia Burgess

Georgia Burgess is one to watch out for on The X Factor 2018 this weekend.

Auditions for the new series are back on TV this Saturday and Sunday.

Try outs return to the arena, with an audience of 4,000 watching on - and four judges.

On the panel this year are X Factor boss Simon Cowell, Ayda Williams, Robbie Williams and Louis Tomlinson.

One of the acts we met this evening was 20-year-old Georgia Burgess who is currently working in temporary recruitment in Birmingham

On stage, Georgia told the judges confidently: "I want to win The X Factor. I'd like to think I could. I'll do my best."

Asked by Robbie what she thinks The X Factor winner needs, Georgia replied: "I think you need talent, determination, guts and a good work ethic."

For her audition song, Georgia belted out The Jackson 5's Who's Loving You for the judges.

"Effortless, absolutely effortless," commented Robbie.

"We get a lot of girls around your age that can sing but there's not really an identity but with you, you're absolutely incredible Georgia," Ayda said.

Louis raved: "The power you have, the effortless riffs, it's too much for my brain to comprehend. You are absolutely fantastic."

And Simon Cowell concluded by giving Georgia her fourth yes.

For The X Factor 2018, the budding performers need at least three or more yeses in order to make it through to the next stage, the judges' deliberation. From there they'll find out if they've made it into the six chair challenge.

Other contestants this weekend include Tom Richards, who previously auditioned in 2010 with Louis Tomlinson, the LMA Choir and Armstrong Martins, who puts a unique spin on a High School Musical hit.

Those who make the cut will join last week's successful acts including Maria Laroco, a 17-year-old Student who had flown in from the Philippines and another returning hopeful, Scarlett Lee. The 20-year-old Make-up Artist from Epsom in Surrey auditioned for the show last year, making it as far as the six chair challenge.

The X Factor 2018 is back Sunday 16 September 8PM on ITV.
