X Factor Essex boy, Olly Murs gets through to final 24 in the competition!

X Factor Essex boy, Olly Murs gets through to final 24 in the competition!

Congratulations to Olly Murs – well done for getting through to the final 24 in the competition. This is absolutely great! The auditions this weekend were held at the Hammersmith Apollo, London, and he was competing against 49 others in the last elimination before the Judge mentoring begins.

I must say, I was surprised at his choice of ‘Your song’ by Elton John, but he executed it beautifully and it showed the judges and audience another side to Olly – and diversity in his singing voice, so we didn’t mind that he didn’t dance this time round. Still now we can see more of that – hopefully – in the future!

He also sported a very different look, with a trilby style hat, t shirt and jeans.

Before his performance he said “Today’s massive – I’m gonna give it everything” and he certainly did.

He seemed happy with his performance and said “Thank you guys” before leaving the stage.

Simon seemed a little disappointed in his choice as he commented “He could’ve taken a risk, but he took a safe option” but isn’t it best to stay safe at this stage – if you are too different, it doesn’t always work. Anyway, who cares, he got through anyway!

Olly said to Dermot afterwards “I’m chuffed, I’m really chuffed”

He then learnt that he was going through as one of the 24 chosen to be mentored by the judges, and his mentor is Simon. This is great news and I would have picked Simon to mentor him anyday.

I expect his Mum, Dad, sister and friends are all really excited for him – Olly Murs to win!
