Now ten years later

I am back as a rapper on the x-factor and I want to show that I have what it takes to win this competition

It means a lot to me. I've done a lot of hard work for

It's a scary feeling right now

But I came here and to pursue my dream and my dream is to become a performer haven't change

Well, actually the ladies are attracted to what's inside of a man

Back me up ladies if you agree. Say yeah

Rapidly moving on

Public toilets can't live without them can't live in the meter

Because there is no fridge and microwave there

Often when I use the male toilet some guys they're part very loud, and I don't like that

So when possible I sneak into the ladies toilets instead because they're much more discreet about it

well, at least when they know that I am there a

Seeing is believing and weighing is relieving

Funniest gloat we've had now is good

My name is Janet Krogan. I'm 28 and I come from Dublin

I live a home with my mom and dad's

janet has been singing since she was about 2 or 3 years of age soon as she could talk I was

This isn't the first time I've done the x-factor I was here two years ago and I made it to Simon's six chair challenge

So crazy in love take a seat

We got the fifth chair and then on the last contestant he took me out and put her in. I'm gonna swap you with Janet

It was devastating. I felt like I let my family down

I was tears all down my face. You too? No, I wanted to hit somebody

After I went home I wasn't thinking anymore

That was it. But then Simon sent out a tweet and it's a head. I should have kept Janet my mistake

Look at that at first I was mad and then I was like, it's not every day Simon Cowell admits. He made a mistake

Today is a really big deal for me. I hope that I can go all the way this time

Why didn't we go all the way what did Simon say? He tweeted afterwards? That was a mistake. It was a mistake. Yeah, okay

Well, the tweet is why I'm here. So, is that right? Yeah, what songs have you got? Um

I'm gonna do pillow talk by Zayn Malik. Awesome. Good luck


We'll go slow and high tempo lighting

In the battles a battle


It's a paradise, it's our

Janice and I know you're a great singer and I really think Simon made a mistake

I did send the tweet, you know, but it was too late son, Janet. You're a really strong singer and you've got a really

Distinctive sound thank you. I'm so happy that you came back. I love your voice. I just thank you

Well, Janet, at least I can admit to my mistakes

I think I was always praying that you would come back into the audition room. You've got more confident

You kind of got a glow about you

Your voice is stunning. Thank you

Right, I'm excited you are the best we've had today

Louie yes or no Janet. I think you were a real singer and I'm giving you a real. Yes. That's it

Sure, Janet. I love your voice. I think you know, it's a yes, thank you. I'm so happy you're here. It's absolute yes from me


So happy you're back. You've got four yeses

Good this is really good

My name is Ashwin, I'm 28 years old and I work as a sales assistant

I've traveled from here actually

Welcome back. So you've lost me. I mean, I'm

Orders no

I'm going to be absolutely honest about something. I am not Scottish. I'm from Buckinghamshire

I'm not gonna put a dampener on it. I recognized you straight away

Even I recognized you and I've never done this

the reason I've

decided to be Scott fish is

Because I've got a bit of a track record when it comes to auditioning for the x-factor the first time I walked in full of

Courage but unfortunately the wrong attitude it was just very very average

What's your definition of average you whatever I decided to come back again in the year 2012 as I just told me no, no

No, Louis Walsh told me to never

Unfortunately, the judges know me too well, so the second I walked into that room if I go in as this Ashwin

They're like no no, no, no before even such thing

I'm quite convinced. They're not gonna recognize me look at me now. Do I even look anything like that five years ago?

New image new hairstyle new bid and a new accent what's in your bag? Let's make myself about the VIP

So there's nothing in that Oh No

This transformation I've taken is all for the X Factor

It takes me a good half an hour every morning to get my hair done like that

Luckily only took me about a week to grow the goatee, but it took me a good sex monster. Learn the Scottish accent

I'm hoping the judges don't recognize me, but if I get the esses I will reveal to them who I really am

Hi, how are you fine? Thank you. Good. What's your name? My name is Ashwin Hugh audition before don't think so

Not last year now you probably merely me mixed up with somebody else


Where do you live sir?

I'm from air air in air. Shear. Are you from Scotland? Yeah, that's right. I'm Scottish. You're Scottish

I'm Scottish yet. For some reason. I recognize the name

I seem to remember an actual in doing an audition last year that I should know. You're gonna make mixed up with somebody else

I'm not that guy

Okay, I'm Ashwin. What star in the world? You think he could be as big as well?

I hope to one day be as big as the Proclaimers

Reclaimer is the proclaimer Stefan Scott. I

Seem to remember you both he okay. I'll admit something. I'm not Scottish

You're right. I'm the same Ashwin Lewis moves down from Buckinghamshire. Oh, I remember you. I reset. I was almost in tune

So yes, that's a start. You're a sneaky little one, aren't you? These are vicious

the reason that I came up with this fake Scottish accent

Everything was because I was worried you both would remember me and the second I walk in you'd say no without me even talking

What are you gonna sing? I'm gonna go for it all and go for take that song. Oh, please good luck

It illumise hit the music baby. Yes

He's sensational, okay. That's Harris come on

When we were young the world seemed so old

Careless and cold we did what we were told in our lives

When we were young

Had the world by the tail good would prevail

Starships would sail and none of us would fail in this life

Not when you're young


When we were young when we adored the fabulous, whoa

When we were young

We were the foolish



knowing the cost of what we paid letting some

Be strong


Just like to see the gesture of the time again good. That was very interested

Do it again world by the tail that was good. You're quite bonkers, but you're ever so sweet

Let's go to a vote


Ashwin I'll see you next year


You are a sweet seed but it's unknown Thank You Shirley. It's a no from me. Laughs. We're messy I

Got a lot of enjoyment with the jazz hands and singing with this shoulder in the tail as well when cherry on top

But not to say no

Thanks - when students are beautiful, but surely isn't

If I was fascinated with his hair I wanted him to turn to the south

What went wrong here second I wouldn't get Gary had though it felt like Gary had these lasers coming out of his eyes

I like them. Of course. I like them. I actually managed to make Gary smile

Was that leaving the room you refused to admit it, but I could tell deep down in his heart. I liked it. It's rubbish

I think it's all quite sad

Boyish win safe trip home, sir, err I mean

Buckinghamshire, see you next year probably

We look after our own on itv2 and that's why I last night after hours of deliberation

Cause I just can't do it

We chose our two extra October earlier you saw hazel while the crowds

And now it's time to be our second wild card

My name's Ashburn Avinashi, I'm 28 years old and I am a sales assistant

Ashwin your big moment is here how you feeling I'm feeling hot

I've been working really hard for this moment because as you selected me

But to be the ultimate wildcard competition the ultimate leve added the ultimate bit as well

Wildcard you've got four notes and have fun. You've ended up back here

I would say it's a long story but it's actually quite a short story earlier on this week my doorbell rings

It was the most amazing moment of my life ask your extra factor, I've been given the chance to bring

People back as a World Cup and we decided Liam had that we think you should come back to the region. Oh

It was absolutely great to be an ITV two wildcard

Do you feel quite strong about today? You've put positive I feel ten times more confident than my previous time

I was a bit concerned regarding my previous audition because unfortunately I got pornos hit the music baby. Yes

However, I felt they'd already decided it before I even started singing

When we were young

when we adored the

Fabulous. I ended up making Sharon Osbourne cry and laughter. I'll see you next year. No

Should have been so beautiful. But if importantly isn't this time around I will make her cry with joy

I'm gonna do things I have never done before

I am Ashwin. I am the ultimate wildcard. This is my moment

Right Wembley

Lovely to meet you lovely to meet you

How'd you get through hello, hang on a minute you've already had four nose

Yes, I did. You're right, but I'm back because itv2 have nominated me as their personal wildcard for this competition

There's a reason we're sitting these seats as you guys are presenting

You've got one song, please

Like my bags and watch your shadow

Take your

Bet you're never gonna go away from me

But you gotta play by so fast it's the part of me

a pirate way

So you can see

We don't have an everything blah blah blah blah, but the words

The part of me that you're never gonna benefit a cure with Rose

You completely smashed it thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I clearly see only four people didn't like it

Well, it's better than four knows


The best thing I've ever seen

Yeah, of course

So that brings us to the end of the old fishing

I'm Adam Sanders. I'm 24 years old and I am from San Antonio, Texas

I auditioned for American Idol back in season 12 when I was just 19 years old

I made it through to the top 50 back row. It's the end of the line being told. No, it was fret breaking but

Truth of the matter is that I wasn't ready

After American Idol, I started getting messages on social media everyday people attacked my weight my sexuality

telling me that I was horrible that you know that I sucked that I don't deserve to be here that I shouldn't be Who I

am and

I let it get to me in a wrong way it

killed me inside it killed me inside almost as much as people were telling me that I should tell myself I

Was contemplating lots of things that I shouldn't have. I just kind of disappeared from the world for a while

And in doing that I kind of hurt myself even more

That's really when I was at my worst thinking. Maybe I shouldn't be here. Maybe I not worth the fixing. Maybe I'm not worth

Another try

but through all of the negativity I have managed to build myself up as a new person a

stronger person

I've recreated myself in ways that I could not have imagined. I

am so ready to show everybody to show all of America to show these judges Who I am now and

I can take anything and everything that comes my way


You better work it out. You better leave it all

Better wig it
