Tom The Wanted “didn’t sing for years” after X Factor audition

The Wanted’s Tom Parker has spoken about his failed X Factor audition in 2004.

The Bolton bad-boy told Metro that he “didn’t sing for years” after he was given a no in the preliminary rounds before meeting the X Factor judges. “It (was) a no before I even finished the chorus. I was 16 and it shattered me”.

Tom says his unique and original choice of song ‘Flying Without Wings’ by Westlife was “a big mistake because it’s your typical boyband song”.

He did finally get the chance to sing for Simon Cowell when The Wanted performed ‘Lose My Mind’ on the show last year.
