The 12 XFactor acts who’ll perform on the live shows this weekend have had makeovers. Sharon Osbourne’s Over’s category include prison officer Sam Bailey, Lorna Simpson and Shelley Smith.
Louis Walsh has chosen Luke Friend, Nicholas McDonald and Sam Callahan. Nicole Scherzinger has Tamera Foster, Abi Alton and Hannah Barrett in the girls category and Gary Barlow’s groups include Rough Copy, Kingsland Road and Miss Dynamix.
Sam Bailey though appears to be the only act who looks different – she scrubs up well! She has been speaking out about not looking like a pop star. Some people have been unkind but she hopes viewers will judge her for her talent! Sam said “It’s totally understandable. I don’t look like a star and I’m no spring chicken but you only have to look at that Subo moment and if she can do it, I’m hoping I can too. I know loads of people who can sing but feel they are too old or too big”.
