Newport dog groomer hoping for X Factor success

HOPEFUL: Chelsie Cadman from Bettws is through to the judge's X Factor auditions in Cardiff

LUCKY SEVEN? Chelsie Cadman of Bettws, Newport

A DOG groomer hopes it will be a case of seventh time lucky in this year’s X Factor.

Chelsie Cadman, 20, of Bettws, Newport, has been auditioning every year since the annual singing competition lowered its age limit to 14, and got through the first round of auditioning held in the city last week.

She was the last of 68 people to audition for two producers in the Kingsway Centre last Friday, and was the ninth person to proceed to the next round of try-outs.

Ms Cadman, who works at Canine Corner in Spytty and sang Spectrum by Florence and the Machine and aptly-named Ex-Factor by Lauryn Hill, said: “I was shaking so much but they said ‘yes’.”

She will now audition in Cardiff on Friday for a chance of going before Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole.

It's every chavs dream to be on the X-FACTOR. This show and others like it should be banned, as all they do is promote the wrong messages and values to the young and sadly, the middle aged too!

They all want to be a someone, dress like they are, act like they are, and the attitude of these people who watch and take part in these shows, on the whole, is not good.

Good luck if that's what you want.

I don't agree with the show either though. Just a way of fast-tracking people who are unable to make it through the proper channels of writing, producing and performing their own music.

Oh My God, why are people so negative.
Good on you Chelsie for having ambitions and dreams, if it goes well, then brilliant, if not, at least you had the brass balls to give it a go and keep trying !

You still have to be 16 to audition. It hasnt gone down to 14! Spoke to this girl just after her audition and she seems really nice. She was the 9th and final person to get through the newport auditions. Hope she does well. Best of luck.xx

I never watch the program, but I wish Chelsie all the luck in the world. It would be nice if a girl from Newport did well.
