X Factor 2018: Louise Setara touches judges with original song

Louise Setara gave an emotional performance of an original song on The X Factor 2018 this weekend.


The X Factor 2018 was back on Saturday and Sunday this weekend with the LAST round of auditions.

Simon Cowell, Robbie Williams, Ayda Williams and Louis Tomlinson sat behind the judges’ desk as the final acts went before the panel.

Hosted at Wembley Arena, the auditions are also being held in front of a 4,000 strong audience.

One of the acts we met this weekend was Louise Setara, a 30 year old cleaner.

Louise previously put out her album Still Waters back in 2007 and also supported Lionel Richie on his UK tour.


In Saturday’s show, she said: “I did music before, years ago.

“I was signed but then I met someone and I gave up music, got married and had kids.”

For her audition, Louise opted to sing an original song called A Moment Of Your Time.

“I wrote it about a conversation that happened between me and at the time husband,” she told the judges.

Ayda said: “Your voice is so beautiful and there is so much emotional behind every single word you say. Incredible.”

Louis added: “I really enjoyed that audition and obviously you’ve got a really good voice.”

And Simon concluded: “This is one of my favourite auditions full stop. Genuinely, you sang a beautiful song and so it’s a yes from me.”


With four yeses, Louise sailed through to the next round.

Other acts we meet this weekend include Cezar Ouatu, a 38 year old singing teacher who surprises the judges, and Panda Ross, who previously appeared on The X Factor in the USA.

Those who make it through will join last week’s successful acts including Bella Penfold, Dalton Andre Harris and Shan.

Following the final round of auditions will be the new judges’ deliberation round.

This year there is no bootcamp and instead all the successful acts from the auditions will face the panel again to see if they’ve made the cut through to the Six Chair Challenge.


Watch all of the latest auditions and see who makes the Six Chair Challenge this weekend.

The X Factor 2018 airs Saturday and Sunday night at 8PM on ITV.
