‘X Factor’ Hopeful Jazzlyn Little Stumbles as Her Group Takes on U2
During the boot camp rounds on the most recent episode of 'X Factor,' the remaining 100 contestants split up for group performances. After the first group did a rendition of Radiohead's 'Creep,' Jazzlyn Little, Stacy Francis plus more took the stage to perform U2's 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.' The tune from Bono and Co. was given a pop treatment, however, as the 'X Factor' masterminds decided to lace the song over the beat to Jay-Z's 'Empire State of Mind.'
Jazzlyn Little was the first the sing, and she slipped up a bit during her performance, forgetting some of the lyrics to the classic rock tune. Although she forgot the words, Little's voice soared with soul on the slowed-down version of the song. Stacy Francis was up next, and the vocal powerhouse was definitely restraining her voice, probably because Simon Cowell told her she overdid it during the previous round. Melanie Alaro also sang, and her smooth-as-silk R&B vocals were spot-on.
Once the performance was over, Little burst into tears backstage. The 16-year-old felt she failed her group by forgetting the lyrics, saying, "I have an amazing group. They worked so hard and I didn't want to let them down." Don't worry, Jazzlyn! You still sounded great! However, if she wants to move on to the next round, she will have to be chosen for one of the judges' teams.
