A crazed Britney Spears fan get a little too close for comfort on the second night of ‘X Factor’ auditions on September 13! Keep reading to see what happened!
Britney Spears has a lot of fans — they were so loud she actually plugged her ears at the auditions twice — but no one was as dedicated as Pat Ford.
We pick up after the first night of auditions in Providence, RI, where we meet Pat Ford, 20, who is totally obsessed with Britney. Like, obsessed. “I would do anything to get a glimpse of her in person.” He even brought her an arrangement of red roses! As he comes on stage with the flowers, Britney looks terrified! (We’re totally loving her faces, by the way.) He gushes over her and reveals he is going to sing Britney’s “Circus.” It’s a complete trainwreck…or should I say circus?
Horrendous dancing and singing lead to four “no” votes, but Pat doesn’t think his journey is over — he won’t leave the stage. He tells Britney he loves her twice, while she sits silently watching. She looks completely freaked out! Pat asks if he can bring the flowers to Britney — thankfully, Simon comes to her rescue and gets the flowers from the stage. Backstage, Pat says that didn’t go as planned and continues to tell the cameras he is completely disappointed and that Britney is his idol. A little scary, honestly!
Back To San Francisco
Rewind to the first audition of the night — Johnny, 16, from California. He sang and rapped an original song called “All These People.” L.A. praised him, saying, “You are exactly what we need.” Britney said, “You’re so passionate and fun to watch. You’re adorably cute and I can see a whole record and album and everything.” He got four “yes” votes!
Lexa, a struggling singer and dancer was definitely working her body to her advantage and immediately started flirting with Simon. She gets the stink face from the girls before she even starts singing! When she does, it’s not great. “It was like one tone and just really boring,” Britney says. “When you first walked out on stage, I was like, wow, this girl is gorgeous — the problem is you came off as really overconfident and it wasn’t likable,” says Demi.
Simon likes her but fears others won’t (he is right). As she gets rejected, Simon says, she’s got “a lot of junk in that trunk.” True.
A Parade Of Hotties
Demi starts flirting with cute guy Dylan, unfortunately, he can’t sing. This is followed by a montage of really attractive people who really aren’t good singers. Obviously, this montage is punctuated by the LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It.”
The Tides Turn
Jason Brock, 34, works in tech support – way too boring of a job for this outgoing performer! He seems a bit crazy as first, as he rambles on stage for a few minutes about his “dream performance,” including smoke, dancers and confetti. But then he starts singing “New York Stage Of Mind,” by Billy Joel, he makes all four judges drop their jaws with his amazing voice! Demi, Britney and L.A. give him a standing ovation! “I loved the audition,” raves Simon. “I was thoroughly entertained,” says Britney. “Every songwriter wants a guy like you to sing their song. You are unbelievable,” says L.A. Four “yes” votes!
An Old Soul
The last audition is Carly, 13, from Westchester. She is so freaking adorable! She says that getting a yes would be one of the best moments of her life! She’s starts singing “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone and sounds about 20 years older than she is!
All four judges are on their feet before she even finishes the song! “Miss thang! You are a little diva! All of us are completely in love with you!” gushes Britney. A star is born, says Simon. “I want to buy your music right now,” says Demi. Of course, she gets four “yes” votes – actually Simon gives her 4,833 “yes” votes! “Best I’ve heard,” says L.A.
