Chris Kennedy and his partner Gabriel Cabrera could make X FACTOR history tonight if they make it through to the judges’ houses.
The pair, who met on a karaoke website, auditioned in front a 3000 strong audience and of course the 4 judges in a bid to make it through to boot camp and the judges’ houses. The couple go by the name The Shures.
The married couple, Chris, 28 and Gabriel, 32 who both live in Milton Keynes sang Ellie Goulding’s Love Me Like You Do, to an audience that was clearly loving the love in.
Openly gay judge, Nick Grimshaw commented,
“It felt like you meant it and there was so much sincerity in it and I think that’s why everyone liked it in here. I could feel the love coming off you.”
“You are a prime example to our generation and I am so glad gay marriage was legalised in this country,”
“Gabriel you are the better singer in my opinion and I guess your voices do work well together but I think that when he took the lead, the song was much, much better.”
The X Factor continues tonight at 8pm on ITV1.
