X Factor 2012: Jade Ellis

X Factor 2012: Jade Ellis

From: Charlton, London
Category Girls
Mentor: Tulisa

Londoner Jade wants to bring ‘soul music’ to The X Factor. After studying musical theatre at college, 25 year-old Jade worked as a bike mechanic – the only girl in her local bike repair shop.

Jade has a six year old daughter, Caiden, and her dream is to take her to Disneyland if she wins The X Factor.

Jade impressed the Judges at her audition singing Something Good by Maverick Sabre, but thought she had ruined her chances of going through at Bootcamp by singing I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz. She hadn’t and she went through.

At Judges Houses Tulisa was wowed by Jade’s performance and asked her to be one of her three acts for the Live Shows. She says she would love to sing with Lady Gaga or Stevie Wonder.
