Filipino-British singer Seann Miley Moore sang David Bowie’s “Life on Mars” in the first live show of “The X Factor UK” on Sunday, November 1, 2015.
Moore received rave reviews from the judges for his uniqueness and individuality.
Rita Ora said “Wow! I just wanted to be up there and be a part of it all with you. This is what I’m talking about. This is so amazing. You are an artist, you are a visionary… and you hit them notes like boom boom boom! So congratulations – thank you for your individuality.”
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini said “You’re so thespian, but in a beautiful way, not theatrical at all. That was outstanding, absolutely stunning – I was fixated the whole way through.”
Simon Cowell said “There are going to be certain people at home about to drop their tea and go, ‘What the bloody hell is that?’ Like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. I loved it. I think you are so special, so individual, you don’t care, and I love contestants like you.”
Nick Grimshaw said “I think you’re a dream to work with, you really are, because you have such a vision, such an identity.”
