At 94, man clears `The X Factor` auditions
London: A man aged 94, and his band, The Nostalgics, has cleared the boot camp auditions of British reality show ‘The X Factor’.
The band also included a lady named Betty, who played the mouth organ and another member, Cynthia, told judges she’d had a pacemaker fitted at the weekend, but still made it to the audition, reports thesun.co.uk.
Bill, a pensioner, along with his band, performed here at the Wembley Arena and got a thumbs up from judges Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Sharon Osbourne and Nichole Scherzinger.
Barlow said: "I want to know the name of the woman on the organ. Is it Elton? Oh, it’s Betty. I love Betty on the organ. Betty, you got everybody up. Well done.”
The group performed on singer Katy Perry`s song "Firework", and left Walsh impressed.
“It is great to see you all sing in harmony. It is fantastic. I loved the song and the sound. I loved everything about it," he said.
