The X Factor USA 2013 Recap: Week 3 – Auditions Night 5 (VIDEO)
The end of the auditions on The X Factor USA 2013 are coming to an end this week and we will find out which judge is mentoring what group (Boys, Girls, Groups and Over 25s) and who made the Top 40 on The X Factor Season 3! This is a big week and can’t believe the auditions are coming to an end. We are only three weeks into it and they normally like to drag these out for even longer! We have more talent to find, so come back and follow along during our The X Factor USA 2013 Recap and watch the auditions continue on The X Factor 2013 Season 3 with us!
The kids have been shining during these auditions and it is so crazy to see them so young and have such mature voices on them. I was playing outside and causing mischief at that age and not going on singing shows! Josh Levi and Stone Martin both impressed the judges last week on The X Factor USA Season 3 and both surprised me.
Josh had such strong stage presence while Stone seemed more timid and shy up there. I thought Stone needed some more time to get used to the stage and get more confident with himself. The judges disagreed and sent both through to the next round. Find out who else makes it through during our recap that starts soon!
WARNING: THE X FACTOR USA 2013 SPOILERS AHEAD!
Don’t want to know what happened on our The X Factor USA 2013 Recap or see the videos from the auditions on The X Factor Season 3? Then don’t read ahead!
We kick things off with Melanie Wright in Long Island. She is 48 years old and has been a paralegal and has been preparing for this for years and for a moment like this. She seems like a hot mess and will sing “Titanium” and she is about to blow up! This is terrible and why do they let these people on these shows? Simon Cowell asked why she chose that song. She is sent home!
The bad auditions continue on The X Factor USA 2013 and they are terrible. However, Emery Kelly is hoping to change that. The girls backstage can see him in a boy band and I think Simon will agree! He starts slow, but kicks it in and Simon is all smiles and I think Emery is good to go! Demi Lovato thinks he is so cute and he is what they are looking for. It is four yes votes for Emery!
We have seen some amazing girl singers this season and it makes it rough for these auditions coming up. Khaya Cohen is 15 years old and is nervous about the talent this season. Song 1 does not go well and the judges stop her. She gets a second chance and knocks it out of the park! She does have some rough moments, but much better and Simon gives her a standing ovation! Demi said she is so excited to hear a voice like hers. Simon says that is what we are waiting for. Four yes votes!
No idea what we just watched, but on to the good auditions on The X Factor Season 3. We see James Kenney and he is an apartment complex manager. He is not living the dream, but he is able to support his children and children. He has a good voice, but I am not sure how I feel about him. Kelly whispers to Simon that his version is great and has a lot of soul. The judges love him and his version and he gets four yes votes!
We get some quick successful auditions before seeing David Gray take the stage. He is a baseball player and very easy on the eyes. He did this for his girlfriend and he probably can’t sing, but he is here to propose to his girlfriend on that stage! He sings and is not good at all and the judges send him home! His girlfriend Lauren Waguespack is next and an alright singer, but David comes out and surprises her with a proposal and that is cute, but she gets a no from the judges too!
Simon is running late, so just the girls right now on The X Factor USA Season 3. Tim Olstad is up next and he is super nervous and doesn’t know if he can get through this! He is beyond nervous as he takes the stage, but knows that music is what he wants to do for the rest of his life. The judges say he is kind of boring, which he is. He sings and has a very good voice and hits some great notes, but you can see his hand shaking as he holds that mic! Demi said he doesn’t have to have an edge and people are going to love him. Paulina feels he was born for this and the judges all say yes!
While the judges will find out tomorrow night what category they will mentoring, Wesley Mountain knows who his mentor needs to be and that would be Kelly Rowland. He comes out and professes his love for her and it is cute and funny. He then goes on and sings a country song and has a great voice. He seems very likable and I am a fan. Simon said it was actually really good. He gets four yes votes!
Celine Polenghi is only 16 years old and she comes out and nails this audition. She has such control over her voice and literraly makes it look simple. Simon said it was not perfect, but she has massive potential and sees a future pop star in her. Four yes votes! The girls keep showing their talent, as they keep coming out and getting those yes votes!
We switch back over to the guys on The X Factor USA 2013 and Rickey Clark Jr. takes the stage. Kelly says he comes out and looks like Usher and we have some more love for Kelly coming on! I am not sure about this one, as he has some strong stage presence, but this song is not good. Simon said he likes him, but doesn’t like his voice. The judges give him four no votes for now and tell him to come back!
Now Paulina and Demi are out, so it is only Kelly and Simon right now and both need to say yes for them to move on. We get to see Lorie Moore and she is wearing a football jersey, which she plays professional women’s football and won a championship last year! Now she wants to focus that work ethic into her music. She may love her football, but she has a lovely voice and is impressive. Simon said that was more than audition and that was a performance and she is very, very good! She gets two yes votes!
Our final act of the night is Second Hand High and they are going to do an original song. They think it will be a #1 hit for a long time and Demi has returned to the panel! They used to date and were engaged, but that is no longer happening. The song is catchy and gets the crowd moving, but it is nothing special. Simon said the song was terrible, but Kelly loved it. They didn’t like the singing and they are headed home!
We have final auditions tomorrow night and then they give us a sneak peek at a new round on The X factor USA 2013: the Four Chair Challenge! They say the audition rounds on TV will never be the same! What is it all about???
