MENTOR: Kelly Rowland
Sophie Habibis was a contestant on X Factor 2011, she was voted off in week 4.
Sophie says that she was one of those children who couldn’t study and says college wasn’t for her and that she needed to be active. She dreams of playing to thousands at festivals and says she wants to make music that makes people’s hairs on their neck stand on end.
On finding out she was through to the live shows, Sophie said: ‘I can’t describe how I feel. I was expecting a ‘no’ because everyone was so good. I was so nervous and I didn’t think that I sounded that good. This means everything to me, I can’t believe it. This means so much, I can’t believe how much this actually means.’
Sophie Habibis’ Song Choices:
Week one: Katy Perry – Teenage Dream
Week two: The Calling – Wherever You Will Go
Week three: Bon Jovi – Livin’ On A Prayer
Week four: Nancy Sinatra – Bang Bang
Week four: XX – Shelter
In week 4, Sophie was in the bottom two with Misha Bryan. All four judges choose to save Misha, which meant Sophie was voted off.
