7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

A Filip­ina mum from Dubai wowed judges on The X Fac­tor UK show dur­ing the au­di­tions round. Ivy Grace Pare­des, a 33-year-old mother of two who used to per­form at Dubai’s Com­edy Junc­tion, sang Whit­ney Hous­ton’s All the Man That I Need in front of judges Si­mon Cow­ell, Ni­cole Scherzinger, Sharon Os­bourne and Louis Walsh. Cow­ell said: “Wow, what just hap­pened there? It was more than amaz­ing. In the sec­ond half of the song, it was like some­body pos­sessed you. I mean, it was in­cred­i­ble, the sec­ond part of that song. One of the best we’ve had.” Scherzinger replied: “She just sang our faces off, pretty much – that’s what hap­pened.”
