X-Factor Competition

CroppedImage620300 IMG 5239

On Wednesday 5th October, Little Lever School hosted the ‘Final’ of their annual X-Factor competition in which eleven fantastic acts took to the stage in the Drama Centre to perform their chosen songs. After a week of enjoyable auditions, it was a tough decision on which acts should advance to the final and in the end there was a range of talented performers from Year 7 all the way through to Year 10.

The final itself saw a packed drama centre of around 130 pupils, family and friends enjoy the excellent performances.

For all students involved, it was a great opportunity to perform in front of a live audience to develop their musical skills, their self-confidence and the opportunity to work as part of a team. This is vital in developing them as musicians, performers and pupils for future years.

This year’s judging panel comprised of returning veteran judge Mr Cooke, Mrs Westwood and Mr Tuff. All judges offered their words of wisdom and encouragement to the pupils, and Mr Cook in particular seemed keen to lend his choreography and dance expertise to the line-up of talented singers.

Head Judge, Mr Cook, ‘I’m a veteran of these events now, and this was certainly the best standard we’ve had yet!’

In the end, the audience voted for their winner, Drew Gudojc (Year 8), who sang a powerful version of the Whitney Houston classic, ‘I Have Nothing,’ whilst the judges selected  their winner in the shape of Chelsea Walsworth (Year 9), singing the emotional ‘Jealous’ by Labrinth,’ which saw many a tear shed in the audience. A big well done must go to ALL 11 finalists (below) who excelled in the event, our three judges, Mr Poole for his work on sound and Mr Jackson for organising and hosting the event.
