The X Factor 2017 acts: Holly Tandy
Bio: Holly is the youngest contestant on this year’s X Factor, having turned 16 during one of the shows, and still lives at home with her mum and dad.
She left school to become a performer, but assured the judges that her ambition goes beyond singing to empty rooms in working mens’ clubs. She credits her 85-year-old granddad – who used to sing in a band in his youth – as her inspiration.
She is a Barnsley FC fan, and was spotted taking in a game at their home ground this past weekend.
What did Holly sing in her audition?
Her show-stopping performance of Alicia Key’s If I Ain’t Got You wowed the judges, and brought her granddad to tears backstage. Check it out below.
After receiving a unanimous “yes” from the judges she strolled through the Six Chair Challenge, and she will be in Sharon’s group for the Judges’ Houses stage.
The X Factor airs Saturdays and Sundays on ITV
