Simon Cowell had concerns about Lucie Jones’ ability to sing Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” during her The X Factor audition. However, boy was he mistaken!
18-year-old Lucie Jones is from a tiny Welsh village that only has a few hundred residents.
About leaving her hometown, Lucie adds, “I really want to get out there on the big stage.”
Lucie’s mother states in an interview before Lucie Jones’ X Factor audition, “For someone like Lucie, who has her sights set on the bright lights, this could be the way for her to move away and realize her dream.”
The X Factor’s Lucie Jones Shines
When Lucie starts singing “I Will Always Love You,” she shows some signs of stage fright. But as time goes on, she becomes more assured, and her voice gets louder. As he observes her flourishing on stage, Simon even begins to smile.
Following her audition, the X Factor judges give Lucie Jones some words of support.
According to Judge Sheryl, “I actually loved your vulnerability in your performance because it makes me think you don’t realize how amazing you are.” She says, “I think you’re one to watch, Lucie.” I think you have a lot of promise. “I think you can sing anything,” she said.
According to X Factor judge Loui, “some people were born to sing.” You have a singing voice. You fulfill all the requirements, thus I prophesy that starting today, everything will be different for you.
Simon smiles broadly and says, “Lucie, this is why we come to Wales.” “One of the hardest songs to sing in the entire world.” You sung it in your own style without attempting to sound like Whitney Houston. You’re really likeable, Lucie. You have a great deal of talent. He says, “I truly like you.
This young woman is so praised that she cannot believe it! After receiving affirmative feedback from all of the X Factor judges, Lucie Jones rushes off stage, where she is greeted by her proud parents.
