Best friends Ryan Ruckelege and Liddia Railton-Newby were stoked to audition for The X Factor with their cover of “Shooting Star.” Their enthusiasm quickly wore off when they realized the judges really were not fans of their singing. Take a look at their audition below.
Ryan And Liddia Had The Judges Confused By Their ‘X Factor’ Audition
Immediately the looks on the judges faces when Ryan and Liddia began singing was that of complete and utter shock. The pair have one of the most memorable ‘X Factor’ auditions of all time but not for a good reason. Sharon Osbourne called the pair out because she assumed their audition was actually a joke.
Both Ryan and Liddia pleaded with the judges and asked if they would improve if they were mentored in the competition. “You can’t just come into an audition like this and throw yourselves around like two kids at playschool,” Sharon said. “It’s not talent.”
Ryan continued to argue with the judges and asked them for another chance but they were not on the same page. “I’m fuming right now,” Liddia said.
“You are the two most diluted people I have heard all day,” Louis Walsh said. “Louis Walsh you wouldn’t know what talent was if it hit you in the face with a brick” Ryan yelled. After the judges all voted “no” Ryan continued on his rant, saying that Gary Barlow has bad hair and is acting younger than he actually is.
As Ryan and Liddia made their way out of the audition room they continued to insult the judges. This is definitely the opposite of what you should do if you want to make a good impression on them.
Ryan Later Returned To The Show Again With A Drunken Tirade
Ryan actually came back to The X Factor and was a part of a montage where he continued to drink and took a dive into the pool during Bootcamp. This eventually led to him getting kicked off the show. He later claimed the show was all fake. “I was dating one of the producers for the show which no-one knew and I was told that he would be able to get me far in the competition even though I couldn’t sing” he said.
He also went on to compete on season 17 of Big Brother. He spoke about how he had an addiction to going tanning.
