Sep 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Last night on ‘The X Factor’, judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, and LA Reid were all on hand to judge the performances. Thousands of contestants waited in Seattle, Washington to compete for the biggest prize in television and music ever given- a five million dollar contract with Sony.

Fourteen year old Drew is in love with Justin Bieber and hopes to impress LA Reid, who signed Bieber. She sang ‘Baby’. Simon asked her if she was okay singing that song in front of LA, and LA explained that he would be more harsh and critical of the song because of that. She said that was okay, that she had made the song her own.

When Drew opened her mouth, LA smiled, and Simon followed. She had indeed made it her own, and done an awesome job. It was slowed down, and soul-filled, and wowed the judges as well as the audience. Nicole liked the original version, but preferred Drew’s version. Simon added, “So do I.” Paula called her daring and bold and liked her a lot. Simon said that this is exactly what he wanted fourteen year olds to do on the show, he loved her a lot. LA called her special, and loved the way she made the song hers. Simon called it the easiest yes so far today. The other judges said yes as well. Back stage, her dad hit his knees in tears of pride.
