Ellona Santiago – Wings – The X Factor

Ellona Santiago auditions with “Wings” on The X Factor season 3.

Nice! She sounded like Jessica Sanchez.

She had nice stage presence. I think she’ll go far!

She appeared in season 1 in a group and made it to the top 12.

Judges:

Simon Cowell: You are the girl I think I want to work with most. You are seriously good.

Demi Lovato: We’re going to have so much fun together. Simon will never forget you again.

Kelly Rowland: Whoever that girl was, she came out and she meant business.

Paulina Rubio: Paulina wasn’t here today. No one missed her.

3 Yes’s!

This will probably be XFactor's last season. Simon belongs on the UK version because it seem like that is the only place where he can find his stars. The US X-Factor isn't happening.  This girl is good but I think she was better 2 seasons ago for some reason. lols

Oddly enough, this performance doesn't hit me. I don't know why, but Little Mix has such a stamp on the song that her singing it alone feels weird. Poor her though, Simon doesn't remember her despite being on the show in Season One. that says a lot.

I feel like she cheated a bit by coming back, but I guess  I'm stuck on American Idol :P Glad she's back however because she really rocked the stage unlike who we've seen thus far in the auditions. She was phenomenal.

I felt like she hollered a lot though.

@ArchieSue I agree. She's still good. But I liked her voice on SEason 1,right now it's just sounds different.

@aryehgizbar It's sad that Simon doesn't remember her. I think everyone was just shocked by the difference in her performance and how she presented herself beforehand but beyond that, the song was not a good fit for her.

@takakupo - Cheated?  What the hell are you talking about?  Contestants return on Idol too and if you're such a big Idol fan you should know that.

Hahaha, when we found out she was already on the show, my boyfriend said, "No wonder her family didn't come."

@KatManFoSho @takakupo Contestants are not allowed to return to idol if they've made it to the semi-finals, aka the live shows. If you're such a big idol expert, you should have known that! boom-fiyah! aksdhglkhasldkghalshlaskhdgalskghalgh!!! 

okay, I'm going to go control myself over here....

@KatManFoSho @takakupo she still auditioned as a solo artist and her being put into a group was out of her control. When you're there, you'll take all the chances you can get. Still comparable IMO since she got that far.

@takakupo - She was part of a large manufactured group and did not make the semi-finals as a solo artist.  Idol doesn't allow groups, so there is no comparison.  FYI, there's very little I don't know about these type talent shows ... worldwide.
