X Factor 2018: Shan belts out Never Enough in amazing audition

The X Factor 2018 auditions tonight saw Shan sing for the judges.


The sixth round of X Factor 2018 auditions aired from 8PM tonight (September 16) on ITV.

Back behind the judges’ desk were Robbie Williams, Ayda Williams, Simon Cowell and Louis Tomlinson.

Contestants will be hoping to get at least yeses as they face them and a 4,000 strong audience at Wembley Arena.

One of the acts we met this evening was Shan, a 25 year old session singer from Croydon.

“When I was a little girl my dream was to be a singer and I’ve never given up on that dream,” she said.


Speaking before singing at Wembley, Shan told cameras: “My family are so supportive. I couldn’t do this without then. Where I am, they are.”

Shan addsed: “For quite some years now I’ve been a session singer. I feel now is the time for me to step forward and present me and hopefully they like me.”

On stage, Shan told Simon she wants to be a “great role model to young people.”

Shan opted to sing Never Enough as performed by Loren Allred from The Greatest Showman.

After singing, the judges were left on their feet.

With four very big yeses, Shan sailed through to the next round.

Joining Dalton on tonight’s show was Bella Penfold, 19 year old hotel singer from Essex, and Dalton Andre Harris, a 24 year old performer from Jamaica who gave a touching performance of Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word.

Those who make the cut will join Saturday’s successful acts including Tom Richards, who previously auditioned in 2010 with Louis Tomlinson, and Armstrong Martins who put a spin on a High School Musical classic.


Also through this weekend were the LMA Choir, made up of singers from Liverpool and Georgia Burgess, who gave an incredible performance of Who’s Loving You.

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