X Factor 2014 Live Show Contestants: Jack Walton

He didn’t get picked for the huge super group boyband, and he didn’t get picked by Mel to go through to the lives… But luckily he came back in the form of a wildcard.


Name: Jack Walton
Age: 18
Category-Mentor: Boys-Mel B
Fast Fact: Louis Tomlinson, as in Louis from One Direction, is a big fan of Jack.
Most Likely To: Be favoured by Simon Cowell – after all, Si picked him!

Poor little Jack Walton, it wasn’t just him and Mel that were left gutted when she decided that he was too shakey to take through to the lives.

Boo hiss etc. etc.

Thankfully Uncle Si was on hand to make sure that justice was served, and now Jack is back.

Jack first impressed us when he sang ‘Waves’ in his room audition, with he and his guitar sailing through to the Arenas.

He then won one of Mel’s six chairs at Boot Camp because he did a brill rendition of ‘Ain’t Nobody’ and left all four judges (and us) super excited.

Then… It all went a bit wrong when he went to Judges Houses.

Scary and Baby Spice decided that his version of Beyonce’s ‘Halo’ just wasn’t good enough to make the final cut and poor Jack was sent packing.

Now he’s back and wowing us all again, mixing up Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl In The world‘ for the first of the live shows last night, he and his guitar back firmly where they belong.

Verdict: He seems a bit… Forgettable? In comparison to the likes of Andrea and other HUGE voices in the competition. But if Louis Tomlinson is a fan then SO ARE WE.
