Girl Power hit The X Factor last weekend with special guest performances by Sam Bailey, Idina Menzel and Fifth Harmony.
We were invited down to a super swanky hotel to have a chat with Sam before the nerve wracking appearance. There was also free tea and cakes, that’s not the only reason we went though.
So what did we learn?
Sam was super nervous about her performance on The X Factor and found it a little bit weird to be heading back, but who wouldn’t?
She misses Paul Akister and that the contestants want to start a petition to bring him back on The X Factor tour.
We had to ask her which judge she would have gone with this year if she were a contestant, of course she picked the beaut Cheryl. She also spilled the beans on her ideal judges panel which included Mary J. Blige, Celine Dion, Michael Bolton and Simon Cowell.
What about Sam’s mentor Sharon Osbourne? Well they’re still close friends and have seen each other several times this year. She’s even seen Ozzy doing the washing up…weird right?
It’s been a great year so far but Sam Bailey “still has a lot in store” “I would love to sing with Phil Collins or Michael Bublé, make a duet album and a dance track”. Producers prepare your mixing tables.
We also hinted if she would like to participate on a reality TV show and Sam told us that ‘Strictly’ would be really nice but wouldn’t be able to participate in ‘Big Brother’ as she likes to go to the toilet in private and wouldn’t either in ‘I’m a Celebrity’ as she doesn’t want to eat testicles… You can’t blame her really.
