The 10 Most Memorable 'X Factor' Contestants
Q: What do you remember about your audition?
Sophie: I was so nervous! I've never really sang in front of a crowd, or auditioned for anything before. I've just never had any interest in it, so I was terrified the whole time. I just wanted to get out there, sing and get off as quickly as possible.
Q: What changed to make you audition?
Sophie: This competition isn't really about the singing for me, it was about doing something my family can't help me with. They can't be on stage with me, so there's no possible way my parents could help me with it.
Q: What made you pick that audition song?
Sophie: [The producers] ask you to bring a few options in case the judges have heard one song a million times that day, you have a backup. I brought a variety, but they didn't like any of them. They had the Adele track and I knew it by heart. As everyone does. I mean, it's Adele!
Q: What would your debut album sound like?
Sophie: It would be, weirdly, Mumford & Sons mixed with Norah Jones and Adele. I really like the soul behind Norah and Adele's voices. That's how I write songs.
Q: How was boot camp?
Sophie: It's exactly what it sounds like: it's a boot camp. We're working so hard, we're all sweating and trying to do our best. I made some lifelong friends from the experience, which I didn't expect! There could have been more drama if we didn't get along so well, but we were actually cheering each other on the whole time.
