Maldon: Sam Callahan wows X Factor judges at Wembley
X Factor hopeful Sam Callahan wowed all four judges with a hip-thrusting performance at Wembley.
The teenage musician from Great Totham appeared on national TV over the weekend, singing his heart out to earn a place in the hotly-contested competition.
On Saturday his June audition in front of judges Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh, Nicole Sherzinger and Gary Barlow was aired.
The nineteen-year-old heartthrob sang an acoustic rendition of You’re Beautiful by James Blunt, while he played guitar, which received three yeses from Sharon, Louis and Nicole but left Gary underwhelmed.
But he proved the Take That singer wrong when he sang You Need Me by Ed Sheeran in front of a 4,000-strong crowd at Wembley, which was aired on Sunday.
The performance, which saw him thrusting his hips into the camera and left girls screaming, earnt him his fourth yes and a ticket into next week’s notoriously difficult bootcamp stage.
See this week's MBS for the full story and reaction from those who know him in Maldon.
