X Factor 2017: Who’s hot and Who’s not in this year’s auditions

| 20.09.2017

For every Alexandra Burke or Little Mix, there’s a Wagner or Honey G.

And this year’s X Factor is no different.

We may have already found the winner in 20-year-old Lancashire starlet Grace Davies.

But equally Sinitta tribute act Elisangela Mahogany has left us with a serious case of the giggles.

Here, we look take a look at who’s hot and who’s not from the first fortnight of auditions…

Who’s hot?

Grace Davies is a special talent.

The 7/2 favourite reduced Sharon Osbourne to tears and was even allowed to sing her song in its entirety during the audition process.

Her heartfelt composition won favour with the judges and viewers alike.

However, she faces strong competition from 6/1 shots Sean & Conor Price.

The Irish brothers wowed the judges with a rendition of Jimi Hendrix classic All Along the Watchtower.

We reckon Louis Walsh has his eye on this talented pair.

Anguillan vocalist Deanna Mussington comes in next at 8/1.

Having previously worked with Grammy producers, the 22-year-old looks a solid bet to go all the way.

Four-piece boyband Rak-Su are 8/1 in from 10s at the start of the competition.

Who’s not?

Tracy Leanne Jefford first auditioned for the show back in 2006.

She didn’t get very far back then, but at 33/1 for this year’s edition could be a worthwhile each-way punt.

“He looks like a pop star”, muttered Louis Walsh as SJ Hill performed his cover of Hotline Bling.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old we don’t think he sings like one.

Drake has 99 problems but Hill is 100/1.

Mother-daughter duo Descendance are the same price and may be worth a shot, with mother Debye set to leave the group.

Of course, X Factor wouldn’t be complete without some of the more left-field acts.

And they don’t come much more left-field than Elisangela Mahogany at 150/1.

The Sinitta lookalike (there’s always one) shocked the judges by stripping during her audition.

Wagner made the finals in 2010. Who says Mahogany can’t do the same?
