TEENSTAR COMPETITION WINNER LUKE FRIEND NOW HAS THE X FACTOR

Luke Friend17 year old teen star Luke Friend has hit the headlines again – this time live shows in the tenth series of ITV’s The X Factor with resounding successwith The X Factor judging panel praising the star, including Sharon Osbourne who has returned from exile saying “Luke I am crazy about you! You are quite fabulous.” Luke Friend opened the show and was also the first to be invited to the live arena auditions.

West Country boy Luke Friend has just come off the back of being crowned the winner of the singing competition TeenStar in July, the nationwide competition for teens and pre-teens! The TeenStar singing competition’s Grand Final took place within The O2 in London and gave acts the chance to play in front of a massive crowd and music industry judging panel.

Other X Factor judges include former Pussy Cat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger who told 17-year-old Luke Friend that he’s a “little diamond of rough” as he took to the audition room with Ben E. King’s Stand By Me. Louis Walsh commented “You have your own style, your own finish, love your voice. You’re different.”

Luke Friend has already impressed an impressive judging panel at TeenStar who crowned the star singing competition winner. The TeenStar judging panel included former Radio 1 DJ and Choice FM presenter Ras Kwame who first discovered Emeli Sande, four time Ivor Novello award winner Mark Hill, Choice FM presenter E Plus, Capital FM producer and celebrity journo Jon Hornbuckle, Editor of Shout Magazine Ali Henderson, Head of BGM Michael King and Head of Future Music Chris Grayston who first discovered Birdy through the Open Mic UK music competition, so Luke’s talent was in good hands to be judged.

 

Chris Grayston remembers Luke Friend from the Open Mic UK competition, saying “It’s great to watch Luke’s development over the years and now he’s found his own image, sound and confidence there’s nothing stopping him!”

 

Much talk was also of Luke’s hair which he revealed to the judge panel he hadn’t washed for 9 months. Perhaps it’s just as well they keep themselves behind a desk!
