The X-Factor auditions reached the half way mark tonight and we got our first glimpse of Irish talent in the form of Seán & Conor Price. The young brothers from Blessington Co.Wicklow impressed the judges with their take on Bob Dylan’s ‘All Along The Watchtower’.
The pair who revealed they took to busking on the capital’s streets after realising their talent struck a particular chord with Simon Cowell who said “This is probably one of the best auditions we’ve had”. He added “I don’t want to change a single thing from what I saw and heard today and if somebody does, you come and talk to me”. Fellow countryman Louis Walsh said that they “ticked every box for me”.
With a clean sweep of 4 yes votes from the judges they’ll now move on to the live shows which begin on Saturday October 28th. No matter how far they go in this years competition the future already looks bright for these lads.
