Stacey Solomon, Dagenham, Essex gets through to final 24 in X Factor!

Stacey Solomon, Dagenham, Essex gets through to final 24 in X Factor!

Well, we have just seen X Factor this weekend, and I was so pleased to see Stacey Solomon making it through to the final 24 in the competition.

Before her audition, where she was up against 49 other chosen artists, she said

“This is my life. I’m going to stay focussed”

She sang ‘There you’ll be’ at the Hammersmith Apollo in London as her choice which she said “suits me” and it certainly did! It was a lovely song sung with style and Stacey is so cute. As she finished her audition and left the stage, Simon gave her a knowing smile, but he did say that she “didn’t look comfortable”

Perhaps she didn’t as she told Dermot afterwards

“It’s so scary out there. My mouth is like sand, it’s so dry”

The best bit is that she wanted her mentor to be Danni Minogue, and she got her, which I think is the best mentor she could ask for!

Good luck Stacey Solomon – your son, Zachary, will be so proud of you once he is old enough to understand!

Near the end of August Stacey was Interviewed on GMTV – see it by clicking HERE

She was bubbly, smiling, giggling – a pure advert for a happy girl, and no wonder! She had come straight from Dagenham to the GMTV sofa, with an audition for X factor in front of a live audience and TV cameras all in the space of a few days. She really is a lovely girl. She said the studio was smaller than she thought and that they can feed her anything when she is famous.

“I’m at college full time and then in the evenings I work in the country club, behind the bar” said Stacey, and I bet the country club she works in is busier than ever now, particularly as she says that she loves to chat to everyone. She also said that she had previously worked in a fish and chip shop ‘Oh my Cod’ and that some confusion for Penny Smith who thought that it was a joke version of ‘Oh my god’.

“You are different aren’t you? You are so alive” said Andrew Castle and he is so right!

Stacey said that she has sung in the back of the car for years. Her Mum sometimes says she sings ‘flat’ Ah bless.

Well, plenty of people have commented badly about her and her accent, but to be honest I think she is a great example of the outgoing personalities and great positive outlook that we Essex people have!
