Caitlin Koch of Buffalo Blows Judges Away on The X-Factor [VIDEOS]
The 2 night premiere of ‘The X-Factor’ on Fox continued and this time a gal from New York stole the show. Caitlin Koch is a rugby coach and player from Buffalo. She’s only 21 and is beautiful. Plus she can sing; really well. Her version of ‘Stop In The Name of Love’ earned her high praise and 4 yes votes, to sail through to the next round. Check out her audition
The audition of the night has to go to 18 year old Melanie Amaro who received a standing ovation for her version of Beyonce’s ‘Listen.’ She even had judge Nicole Scherzinger in tears. Give it a listen. She may be the one to beat, but I say that after every show.
Then there’s Alexander, or should I say Xander. Someone should have given him a piece of advice before his audition. Don’t be surprised when you bite the big dog, he bites back. Simon Cowell put ‘Xander’ in his place.
Simon Cowell wanted The X-Factor to beat American Idol in the ratings department. But he’s got a ways to go. About 12.5 million tuned into the Wednesday night debut. That’s not even half the audience of Idol’s season 10 premiere in January. The good news is The X-Factor gave FOX its most watched fall series in 5 years. And it’s early. Maybe more will tune in next week when auditions continue Wednesday night at 8 on FOX.
