Jade Richards Returns To X Factor After 2011 Rejection


X Factor viewers will be seeing a familiar face this Saturday. No, it's not Danni Minogue. It's the Scottish singer Jade Richards. Jade was sent home, somewhat controversially at the judges' house round of last year's show, despite turning in several spine-tingling vocal performances that were nigh-on faultless. She clearly hasn't let the rejection get to her, though, as she's back again for a second try on X Factor 2012.

Jade attended the Glasgow auditions of the show and has presumably ironed out those "kinks" that last year's judge, Kelly Rowland felt that she had in her performance. The Huffington Post have noted that she's rocking a "new gothic look," though frankly, we're not seeing that much difference from last year's look, except the partly-bleached and tattered beehive has gone, in favour of sheer black locks. Last year, Jade's first performance reduced Kelly Rowland to a wreck of tears but sadly she didn't quite make it through to the live final.

According to the Daily Mail, Jade has a newfound confidence, after losing weight following last year's rejection from the show and it looks as though the perseverance will pay off, as Louis tells her "I loved you last year, I love you this year. You're looking totally different, you're looking great!" Tulisa also comments "That vocal doesn't even need to be judged or commentated on, it speaks for itself" and guest judge Anastacia says "I have hairs on my body that are standing up that I didn't know existed."
