Reuel Elijah got Alesha Dixon singing with him in tonight’s final X Factor 2017 auditions.
In this evening’s episode, try outs moved to Manchester with guest judge Alesha Dixon alongside Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne.
One of the acts singing for the panel was Reuel Elijah, a 21-year-old dance teacher from Cardiff.
Chatting to the judges, Reuel said he’s influenced by 90s to 00s music and would be singing Montell Jordan’s This Is How We Do It
The song choice got the thumbs up from Alesha Dixon who joined in, singing along with Reuel.
“This is a good duet going on,” said Sharon Osbourne.
“I liked that song and it was nice to have the energy in the room,” Alesha praised.
However Sharon added: “I like your laid back style, I don’t know how great your voice is but I like you.”
Despite the hesitation, the four judges gave Reuel yeses through to bootcamp.
Other acts on tonight’s final episode of auditions included duo Boybanned, made up of Scott (28 – student nurse) and Ben (27 – joiner) who up until the morning of the audition used to be a trio, but third member Jack decided not to audition.
As the final try outs wrapped up, we went on to meet 52-year-old housekeeper Susan Shepherd from Furness, who dreamed of being as big as Amy Winehouse, and a familiar face in the form of recent Big Brother housemate Simon Gross.
Finally there was Berget Lewis, a 45-year-old singer from Amsterdam, Netherlands who was after a bigger career here in the UK after enjoying some success in her home country.
The X Factor 2017 continues Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
Next week sees bootcamp begin.
