The Venue: Hammersmith Apollo, London
The VIPs: Alesha Dixon, Carmen Electra, Simon Cowell, David Walliams, And and Dec
The Gossip: (1) All eyes were on the ladies at the second London date of the BGT auditions, and what a sight that was. Former Strictly judge Alesha, dazzled the cheering crowd with a rather short sparkly mini dress and heels. The leggy singer certainly made her mark as the newest permanent female judge. We think Alesha looks fab!!
(2) Amanda Holden’s temporary replacement Carmen Electra, received a very different response from the crowd. The ex-Baywatch star was greeted with boos from the crowd, probably not the response she and Simon had hoped for. Some of the crowd were heard to be shouting, ‘We want Amanda back,’ poor Carmen was mortified. Carmen was recently a guest judge on hit show, ‘So You Think You Can Dance?’ and caught the X-Factor bosses eye. We love Amanda too, but give Carmen a chance guys!!
(3) Despite the drama of the American X-Factor cull last week, Simon was in very smug, (oops, we mean good), spirits. He tweeted: ‘Loving London auditions @gottalent, saw a 17 year old singer yesterday who is off the chart. Carmen very cute.’ We’re glad to see Simon’s happy then!Read more »
