Nicolo Festa Biography

The X Factor 2010 hopeful Nicolo impressed the judges with his audition in London on tonight’s show, performing ‘A Song For You’. Cheryl and Louis were immediately fans of the 21-year-old from Italy, with Cole saying she enjoyed his ‘diva-ish’ vocals during his audition.

Speaking before his performance, Nicolo told the cameras: “I started singing when I was born. I sing every day, all the time, anywhere. I want to be known as a legend, an icon, someone that gives people goosebumps at the mere mention. Music nowadays is about talentless people. The music that everyone listens to sounds just a like.”

He added: “I cannot tell the difference between Madonna or Lady GaGa or Miley Cyrus. Nobody has everything – the look, the style, the attitude and the voice. I think I could be that guy. It’s time to shake things up a little bit.

“What I think truly is that I’m amazing. Today I’m going to show the judges how big my X Factor is.”

Following his audition, Cheryl told him: “There’s something really charming about you and I don’t know why. I don’t know if it’s the Italian accent or the fact that you’re called Nicolo. I enjoyed your vocal, very diva-ish.”

Louis Walsh added: “A real diva in the making but that’s what makes you interesting, different, everything about you is different.”
