X Fac­tor singer un­de­terred by Cow­ell crit­i­cism

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

“OVER­WHELM­INGLY RE­LIEVED and ex­cited” — that was Joel Fishel’s re­ac­tion after he and his sing­ing part­ner Jack Rem­ing­ton made it through to the next round of X Fac­tor on Satur­day night.

The duo per­formed Ha­vana, the salsa num­ber by Camila Ca­bello cur­rently top­ping the charts.

Ox­ford maths grad­u­ate Joel — or “JLo” as he was dubbed by judge Sharon Os­bourne for his “geeky but cute” dance moves — told the JC: “Jack and I were ready to hear that it was us leav­ing, be­cause the com­pe­ti­tion is so strong. But we’ve gained a lot of con­fi­dence, hav­ing got through, and we’re just rar­ing to get on to the next round.”

View­ers were sur­prised at the crit­i­cism Jack and Joel re­ceived from their men­tor Si­mon Cow­ell, Joel said: “His com­ments were seem­ingly quite cut­ting but he has the best in­ten­tions at heart. He takes this very se­ri­ously, and knows we can han­dle the feed­back.” Joel Fishel
