Well, fancy seeing you here!
Remember Britain’s Got Talent finalists Luminites?
They were a pretty big deal on last years’ show and tipped to be Briatain’s answer to the Black Eyed Peas.
Heck, they were even signed to Sony records for a time.
However, sadly after their single Do Something failed to do, er , anything and limped in the charts at number 65 Luminites split up and back to Milton Keynes they went.
The music industry can be a cruel place.
However, since then Steph (the Fergie of the group) has gone solo and only went and turned up at X Factor auditions!
Much to the delight of Simon Cowell.
She was so well received, in fact, that she sailed through to the boot camp stages of the telly show meaning she will undoubtedly feature when the series airs.
However, it has been reported by some sources that Steph was personally contacted by producers after Luminites split and asked to audition for the show.
“It’s the first time a BGT finalist has appeared on The X Factor,” a source told The Sun. “Steph has already been sent through to boot camp and viewers are bound to recognise her. The group didn’t work out but Simon is clearly a fan so she was encouraged to reapply.”
The source continued: “During auditions he told her she was brave to pick herself up after a knock and said she could be a star. She got four yeses and the audience went crazy. It’s bound to arouse more suspicions about how real the audition process is.”
Well, God does love a trIer.
God being Simon Cowell in this instance, obvs.
