Happy at number 13
Carmelo Munzone gets lucky, writes
to be treated like any other contestant’. I don’t want the anger vote.’’
Munzone says if there was anything to prove, it was to Mel B for ditching him in the first place.
He learnt he would be recalled late Friday and had the weekend to prepare for this week’s live performance, when he sang the heavily re-recorded 1960s hit Everlasting Love.
Munzone failed to make the final 12 on the show. His recall effectively makes him the 13th finalist, which suits him perfectly. ‘‘Thirteen is my lucky number,’’ he says. ‘‘I am born on the 13th and my house number is 13 and I am the 13th contestant in the final.
‘‘I had only a small amount of time but we put in a lot of work and I was more than happy with the song they gave me.’’
