Matt Cardle’s incredible X Factor performance
I know I’m a little late with this, but this past Saturday I sat down with apprehension to watch the X-Factor on ITV. Like a lot of people I only really enjoy the audition stage for the atrocious performances, but this week one act above all others caught my attention, and his name is Matt Cardle.
Matt is a guy who hadn’t received an awful lot of recognition leading up to the Bootcamp stage of the competition, he’d comfortably got through his audition but from what I remember (which admittedly wasn’t much) he was a solid yet unspectacular singer. On this night however he chose to sing Roberta Flack’s The First Time Ever I saw Your Face, and it stands right up there as one of the most stunning performances see on on these types of shows. I won’t lie, this reduced me to tears. Here’s the video of his song, enjoy it.
