Singer/Songwriter Redeems Audition With Soulful Vocal on The X Factor UK 2015 (VIDEO)
Singer/songwriter Stephanie McCourt redeemed her audition with a soulful take on Ella Fitzgerald’s “Summertime” on The X Factor UK 2015!
So Stephanie starts out with a first song, and instantly, the judges aren’t feeling it, and I get why, because it’s a problem that sunk a lot of contestants this week (like Shianne Phillips, who went before her). The contestants are just getting too damn cute with their song choices, trying to be the most original, the most memorable, and the most ambitious, rather than just picking a good song and singing it. I could see what Stephanie was going for with that version of “Shake It Off”, but it didn’t feel like it worked. Thank goodness she got a second chance with “Summertime”, because the vocals, the look, and the artistry are all there. This girl could be a STAR. Watch Stephanie’s audition video below:
