X Factor 2012 auditions: Jade Richards returns for a second attempt

Jade Richards X Factor

Jade Richards has returned to The X Factor auditions for a second attempt, it's been revealed this morning.

Auditions for the 2012 series hit Scotland this weekend, and Jade from Fife was back and hoping to make it to the live shows this year.

The 21-year-old had wowed judges with her performance of Adele's Someone Like You at her first audition last year, and made it all the way to the judges houses.

However mentor Kelly Rowland decided, rather controversially, not to pick the Scottish singer to make the live shows.

Jade had arguably one of the best voices on the show and had built up a strong following online, and her live show snub caused complaints from viewers.

Undeterred, Jade is back this year and hoping to go all the way this time.

A source told us: "Everyone recognised her. It was like she was already famous. People were getting pictures and even autographs."

Also at the X Factor auditions again was James Michael, who made the live shows but was kicked out in the first week twist.

Welsh singer Tom Richards and last year's judges' house star Joe Cox have also been spotted trying out for the show again.

The X Factor auditions continue on Saturday in London.
