X Fac­tor lands on Coast as AGT premieres

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAYCONTENTS -

FAVOURITE stars from The X Fac­tor head to the Gold Coast this week­end to per­form live for fans as the bat­tle of the TV tal­ent se­ries hits full swing.

Five early favourites in Seven’s rat­ings hit – Gold Coast­ers Will Per­rett, JTR and Dami and Syd­ney’s Barry South­gate and Joelle – will per­form live at Robina Town Cen­tre on Satur­day from mid­day.

They’ll also head over to Met­ri­con Sta­dium, at Car­rara, for a spe­cial per­for­mance as part of the en­ter­tain­ment pro­gram for the Gold Coast Suns v Melbourne Demons game.

Per­rett, 16, from Nerang, has two broth­ers who play for the Syd­ney Bull­dogs, but for the as­pir­ing singer, mak­ing mu­sic rates more highly than scor­ing a try.

‘‘I never wanted to be in football, never ever. Never have I wo­ken up and thought I want to do that,’’ says Per­rett, who aced his The X Fac­tor au­di­tion singing John Farn­ham’s Burn For You.

New re­cruits Dan­nii Minogue and LMFAO front­man Red­foo have joined singers Ro­nan Keat­ing and Natalie Bass­ingth­waighte on the judg­ing panel, re­plac­ing the seats for­merly oc­cu­pied by Mel B (aka Scary Spice) and lo­cal singer Guy Se­bas­tian.

This week, the judges put the con­tes­tants through Su­per Boot Camp to de­cide who will make it through to the Top 24.

The X Fac­tor con­tes­tants play Robina Town Cen­tre on Satur­day at mid­day. The X Fac­tor: Sun­days, 6.30pm; Mon­day and Tues­day 7.30pm; Seven, Prime7.
