If music be the food of love then X Factor must be caviar as one hopeful discovered in this week’s show.
37 year old Samantha from Hastings had come to the London auditions in the hopes of wooing the judges, Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos, Kelly Rowland and Louis Walsh. However little did she know that is was her who would be struck by Cupid’s arrow.
As the singer took to the stage for her audition in front of thousands at London’s 02 Arena she was startled to see her boyfriend Paul sneak on stage after her.
Surprised, she asked him: “What are you doing out here?” Before he got down on one knee and said: “I wanted to borrow just a short moment of your time for Samantha…Will you marry me?”
To the judges’ and the audiences’ delight a shocked Samantha said yes! As the crowd gave the delighted contestant a standing ovation she was sent through to bootcamp with four more yeses from the panel.
The happy couple weren’t the only ones in the mood for romance as it looked like Love Takes Over star Kelly Rowland fancied a bit of flirting of her own.
When Perry came onstage to audition it seemed there was chemistry between the pair and she told him: “You’re not supposed to be making me blush!”
The lucky lad, hoping to show her what he was made of, told her: “I have that effect and I haven’t even lifted up my top yet” before revealing an impressive six pack.
His stomach muscles might have been fine tuned, but his vocal chords sadly were not and the Destiny’s Child judge told him: “My darling I must admit I love your abs a little bit more than your voice, it’s going to be a no from me, but I am going to be dreaming about those abs. I counted; it was all eight, just nice.”
So with the first X Factor wedding bells already ringing it could be a bumper year for romance, has anyone caught your eye on the show so far? Who will be the next X Factor heartthrob? Leave us a comment below and let us know your thoughts.
