The X Factor Punters Are Loving You Louisa

The X Factor is back and after the first instalment of the show one hopeful has really caught the eye of punters. 17 year old Louisa Johnson got four yeses for her rendition of Michael Jackson’s Who’s Loving You and went straight into the betting as the 4/1 favourite to win.

4th Power, a four piece sister group from the Philippines, wowed with their take on Jessie J’s Bang Bang and could be the next Little Mix as 6/1 second favourites to win.

Lauren Murray, a dental receptionist, also bagged four yeses from the judges and is on offer at 12/1. Politics student Tom Bleasby, who has already had a taste of fame after going viral for his duet with Jessie J, was amongst the hopefuls who impressed and can be backed at 14/1.

Jennifer Philips received a standing ovation for her version of Mary Mary’s Shackles, but at 33/1 it may be the only one she gets. Also making it past the first auditions were Mason Noise (80/1), Tom Davies, who is 100/1 to win, and Susan Pryce who amazingly made it through with her strange techno routine but is a 150/1 shot.

The first round of auditions got off to a promising start with two major contenders for the X Factor title already.

Louisa Johnson has been receiving support from punters and is the early frontrunner at 4/1 after blowing everyone away with her powerful vocals

Manila girlband 4th Power’s harmonies and well-choreographed audition has set the bar high in the Groups category and at 6/1 they are ones to watch.
