Former Backup Singer Becomes the Star on The X Factor UK 2015 (VIDEO)
Former backup singer Anton Stephans became the star with his stunning performance of “I Am Changing” on The X Factor UK 2015!
This was my favorite audition of the week, and it’s not even close. I had goosebumps — hell, I had chills. He kind of reminds me of a male Melinda Doolittle, in the sense that when she auditioned, she knew she was good, but I don’t think she realized just how great she was. Same deal with Anton, who’s somehow convinced himself that he could never be the frontman, because he’s been in the background for so long (for such acts as Tina Turner!). “I never thought I was good enough to be the number one person I wanted to be, but that takes courage and I didn’t believe in myself enough,” Anton stated in his video. But his version of the Dreamgirls classic was basically the highlight of the auditions, to me. His stage presence needs a lot of work, but the vocals are undeniable. I hope he takes this entire competition by storm. Watch Anton’s audition video below:
