Just because two people audition together for The X Factor UK, it doesn’t mean they’ll get along once they hit the stage. This was true of Abbey and Lisa, or Ablisa, a pair of teens who auditioned in 2010.
Not only did the girls fail to impress the judges with their singing, but they also argued with each other on stage. This led to a fist in the face and a backstage argument. Check out their audition below.
Abbey And Lisa Audition For ‘The X Factor’
Abbey and Lisa’s audition didn’t get off to a great start, as they called Louis Walsh an “old man” and replied “I don’t know” when asked why they chose to come on the show. When the audience started booing them, they shouted, “Shut up!”
Abbey then threw her microphone at Lisa and stormed off the stage. After a brief conversation backstage, they returned to sing. They gave an awkward, tone-deaf performance, and Lisa said they didn’t care what the judges thought.
That didn’t fly with Abbey, who told the judges, “Obviously we care what you think, but she’s just being a bit over-the-top.” Simon responded by telling them they have “the worst attitude of any contestants I have ever met on any of these shows.”
Abbey Punches Lisa In The Face During Audition
Abbey and Lisa got into a further disagreement when Lisa called out the audience for booing, and Abbey said the crowd is “entitled to their own opinion.” Then judge Natalie Imbruglia told them their singing wasn’t “great,” and Lisa asked, “Who are you?”
This seemed to be the last straw for Abbey, who walked off stage — but not before putting her fist into Lisa’s face. Backstage, Abbey said Lisa’s behavior made her look bad, saying it was “the last time I do anything for her again.”
So what happened to Ablisa after their audition? Abbey posed topless and said she regretted doing The X Factor. She said that she and Lisa were no longer friends.
“Although I have anger issues I don’t just randomly hit people,” she explained. “I just want to say sorry to Lisa and her mum and also to the judges because I was back-chatting a lot during the audition which I regret.”
