Andrea Faustini Biography

Andrea Faustini is an Italian student who was previously studying Chinese and Korean at the Sapienza University of Rome. He quit university and came all the way from Rome to audition for the show. He has said that Spice Girls would be his dream duet. At the age of 13 he won the Italian variety show Ti lascio una canzone.

With the eliminations of Jake Quickenden in week 3, Jack Walton in week 4 and Paul Akister in week 5, Faustini became Mel B's last remaining act in the competition. He was in the bottom two with Stevi Ritchie in week 7, but was saved after only Cowell voted to send him home. However, after the series ended, it was revealed that Ritchie had received more public votes than Faustini. So, had it gone to deadlock, Faustini would have been eliminated. He was once again in the bottom two in week 9, this time with Lauren Platt. He was saved for a second time after only Fernandez-Versini voted to send him home. However, once again, Faustini had received the fewest public votes and had it gone to deadlock, Platt would have been saved and Faustini would have been eliminated. After reaching the final, he finished in third place in the competition.

On 22 February 2015, it was announced that Faustini had signed a record deal with RCA Records and would be heading to Los Angeles to record his debut album, due for release later in 2015. His debut album Kelly will be released on 17 July 2015.
