The first set of judges’ houses results are in!

Offering a glimpse into the jet set lifestyle that The X Factor winner could have, this weekend the four categories travel to glamorous destinations across the world and with just one more chance to impress their mentor, each act will be hoping to convince them that they have the star quality required to reach the live shows.

This evening the focus was on the Girls, in San Francisco with Sharon Osbourne and the Overs, in South Africa with Nicole Scherzinger.

With crucial decisions to be made, each judge has help at hand from guest judges who know all about what it takes to make it in the industry: Nicole is aided by Mobo award-winning, BRIT nominated and man of the moment, grime artist, Stormzy while Sharon makes it a family affair with son Jack and daughter Kelly.


First to find out their fate was Matt Linnin who got a yes. Nicole said: “I think you have a great tone to your voice, I loved your song choice but there’s a lot more work to be done here.”

Next up was Kevin Davy White and Slavko.

Nicole told Slavko: “You’re fun and unique but you’re up against a lot of strong voices. I’m sorry but I’m not able to take you through to the live shows with me”

But it was good news for Kevin who got thes econd yes, as Nicole raved: “You sounded amazing yesterday and we’ve never had anyone like you on the show.”

Berget Lewis got a no from Nicole, who said: “I’m so sorry I’m not going to be able to take you, but you’ve got a gift unlike anyone else, so I know you’re unstoppable.”

That left Tracy Leanne Jefford and Talia Dean fighting over the final place in the live shows for the Overs category.

Talia was the one that missed out, as Nicole told her: “Though you’ve grown vocally I don’t know if you’re the strongest singer. You’re almost there but I don’t think you’re ready.”

That left Tracy Leanne in the live shows: “Your voice sounds like a record, I can hear it on the radio. ”


First of the Girls to discover their results were Deanna Mussington and Rai-Elle Williams.

Rai-Elle got a yes, with Sharon saying: “Your performance was great and my decision is you’re going through.”

Unfortunately, that meant Deanna was the unlucky one to get a no: “It’s not been an easy decision for me at all… I’m going to be sending you home, it’s not just your time right now.”

Georgina Panton also got sent away with Sharon telling her: “You’re an incredible young woman and you have a great voice, but I never know what I’m going to get with you.”

There was then good news for Holly Tandy who got the second yes. Sharon said: “Your performance was magic yesterday.”

That left Alisah Bonaobra and Grace Davies fighting for the last spot.

And it was Grace who won it, as Sharon told her: “It’s not the end of you, you’ve got too much talent!”

Sending Alisah home, Sharon said: “I feel you’re very one dimension, you’re all power ballads and I wanted to see other sides of you. This is a very hard decision and I didn’t come to it lightly.”

The X Factor continues Sunday night with the results of the Groups and Boys judges’ houses.

KTEE – has been singing since the moment she spoke her first word and hasn’t stopped since. Countless hours of her childhood were spent in her tiny room in Maria Neustift (Austria), her home town. This is where she trained her voice on her own, relying only on her mother’s bulky red tape recorder. One pop song after another was recorded, listened to, analyzed and re-sung until she was fully satisfied with the sound. In fact, 102 recordings were collected on her treasured cassettes to the point of breaking – literally


But who is KTEE and why should you listen to her music? KTEE is a self-confident, independent, perfectionist, energetic singer who can laugh about herself and who knows her own mind. She isn’t really a “bad girl” but she definitely is not a “goody-goody” or the so- called “sweet girl next door”. She wants her audience to have fun and “rock their lives” along with her. Her motto: “Dare to do what you love, remain true to yourself, make something of yourself and don’t take life too seriously”. All of this is reflected in her songs, presenting the audience with her outstanding message behind a powerful voice.

With all that being said, KTEE introduces us to her debut Track, “So What”

“I’m stronger than my mistakes” – This is the first line of the chorus and also the main message of the song “So What”. The powerful song reflects the singer’s personality and also her personal growth from a teenager full of self-doubts to a self-confident young woman who knows exactly what she wants and who (most of the time) gives a sh* about what other people think about her.

“When I was younger, I had to struggle with depressions and eating disorders and I didn’t really accept myself the way I was. Even worse, I did not know who I was, but wanted to know so badly. I never gave up, I found me and since then I’ve been tryring to follow my dreams.“, so KTEE.

The singer also admits that it is not always easy and that the well-known saying „Follow your dreams“ is often easier said than done and that she still falls on her face sometimes. But she always tries to do it her way, to fight for her dreams and beliefs, no matter what others say, because she says „it is MY WAY and MY LIFE. And the mistakes I’ve made and still make – they make me stronger . I am stronger than my mistakes, even when the earth shakes. SO WHAT!?”,so the singer.
