Waitress Serves Up a Showstopping Audition on The X Factor Australia 2015 (VIDEO)
Waitress Mahalia Simpson served up a showstopping audition with her rendition of “Like a Star” by Corinne Bailey Rae on The X Factor Australia 2015!
I was delightfully surprised by this. Mahalia had such an unassuming personality that I almost feared she’d miss a lyric or something. But this was downright magical, akin to Bella Ferraro’s “Skinny Love” audition two years ago. She has this subtle charisma about her that held my attention, even though she doesn’t really seem like she’s trying to engage the audience. In fact, it kind of felt as though she was off in her own world. But that’s what I found captivating about it. It was like we were watching Mahalia in a private moment, singing with the kind of freedom you have when you sing in your car or in your room. I just loved this. Hell, Guy Sebastian looked downright stunned. Watch Mahalia’s audition video below:
