Another Pinay in X Factor UK
Another Filipino brings pride to the country and stuns the judges in X Factor UK with her rendition of Shirley Bassey’s 007 theme tune Diamonds Are Forever.
Gaga Lord, a 40 year-old dinner lady from the Philippines, brought glamour to her first audition when she showcased her bold and powerful voice which actually made Simon Cowell interrupt her performance.
However, it wasn’t to stop the audition but rather to make it more exciting by asking Nicole Scherzinger and Alesha Dixon to join her and recreate the opening of the James Bond movie, where the song originates.
The dinner lady’s performance really got Simon Cowell in the mood that he even threw up a gun sign himself and pointed it at Louis Walsh.
Nicole was also particularly surprised when Gaga Lord went on a deep squat with them while singing, making the whole number more appealing and sensual.
Gaga Lord’s fun, crazy yet very impressive audition wows all the judges and earns her four solid yeses sending her straight to the next round.
