17-Year-Old Gives Nick Jonas A Run for His Money on The X Factor Australia 2015 (VIDEO)
17-year-old singer Andrew Lambrou wowed the judges with his version of “Chains” by Nick Jonas on The X Factor Australia 2015!
I’m of two minds on this audition: on the one hand, I think Andrew has a hell of a voice and lots of potential for growth; on the other hand, I don’t know that he’s ready to tackle the main stage as a solo act. I sort of view it as an Adrian Nookadu situation from last year: a young guy who’s got a great voice and lots of mainstream appeal who underwhelms in the live shows because he was put through before he was ready. I think if Andrew is to advance this year, he should be put into a group. I know it’s a bit of a tired thing to do, to take the various heartthrobs and try to make a boy band out of them. But in this case, I see it as an investment in the future. Giving a singer a chance to grow as an onstage performer could give him a leg up when/if he eventually does become a solo act.
