Gre­gor does an X Fac­tor dou­ble take

Daily Record - - NEWS - RICK FULTON r.fulton@dai­

A SCOTS busker has to au­di­tion twice to stand out from the X Fac­tor crowd.

In tonight’s show, Gre­gor Cole­man – who is of­ten seen singing and play­ing gui­tar in Glas­gow’s Buchanan Street – fails to im­press the judges with Vance Joy’s Rip­tide.

Si­mon Cow­ell tells him: “I need you to do some­thing that sets you apart.”

Gre­gor, of Bar­rhead, who has a strik­ing but­ter­fly tat­too on his throat, then re­turns to sing Ri­hanna’s Stay.

Also on tonight’s show is another Scot who has a fight on her hands to get through.

Ni­cole Simp­son, 22, from Glas­gow, sings Drake’s Just Hold On but Si­mon says: “I’m not jump­ing out of my chair. You are tech­ni­cally a very good singer but I’m try­ing to work out where you sit in this very crowded mar­ket of girls.”

The X Fac­tor is on STV tonight at 8pm.
