X Factor 2017 contestant Elisangela Mahogany shocked the judges with her audition in tonight’s show.
This evening saw the opening bumper episode on ITV from 8PM with brand new acts hoping for at least three yeses from the judges.
Back behind the judges’ desk this year are Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh and they got quite a surprise when Elisangela entered the room.
The 34 year-old personal trainer introduced herself as coming from Brazil, prompting Simon to remark: “I knew that as soon as you walked in.”
Other contestants watching on from the holding room branded Elisangela a Sinitta look-a-like as she burst into a cover of Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You.
But this wasn’t any Ed Sheeran cover, with Elisangela whipping off her black overcoat to unveil a very revealing two piece outfit.
After the performance, Simon Cowell reacted: “Oh my God. Do you have a second song, third song, fourth song…”
And Louis said: “I want to see you again!”
The unusual audition won over the panel and Elisangela got through to bootcamp.
Other acts on The X Factor 2017 this weekend’s opening show included boy band Rak-Su, who are made up of Ashley, Miles, Jamal and Mustaf.
Then as auditions moved to Liverpool, we met 27 year-old plasterer Sam Black and mum of three Kayleigh Taylor.
Further hopefuls appearing in tonight’s opening show were primary school teacher Jack Smith and Irish shop assistant Rwanda Shaw.
Plus we were introduced to duo Jack and Joel, a singing pair of pals from London who attended Oxford University together.
The X Factor 2017 auditions airs Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
The next episode airs on Sunday, September 3 at 8PM.
