THE OVER 25’S CATEGORY – mentored by Sharon Osbourne
Sam Bailey: Age 35. Mum-of-two Sam Bailey is a shy prison officer who never had the confidence to audition for a show like the XFactor before. She wowed the judges in her room audition when she sang Beyonce’s “Listen”.
Shelley Smith: Age 34. There’s no doubt about it, Shelley Smith is loud. She drives a van by day and SINGS day and night.
Zoe Devlin: Age 28. Dark haired Zoe who always seems to wear a flower in her hair sang “You are so Beautiful” at boot camp. She’s quirky and almost reminds us of Imelda May.
Andrea Magee: Age 31. Blonde Andrea from Belfast is a music teacher by day and has even brought her bodhran on stage.
Joseph Whelan. Age:28. A familiar face on the XFactor. The builder has been on the show before with his son. He failed to make it past boot camp last time.
Lorna Simpson. Age 26. Lorna is a student who does a smashing rendition of all Whitney Houston tracks.
