Amy Connelly had been in this audition room before, only many years ago. Six years, in fact. Now, at the age of 25, Amy was about to have her second chance at “X Factor UK” stardom.
The moment that Amy centered herself on the wooden floor of the audition room, Cheryl Cole’s eyes lit up. She was in pure shock.
“Oh, wow! Hello!” Cheryl said to Amy with a smile. Amy replied with her own “hello” and the two had a moment.
Cheryl continued, “It’s like a blast from the past.”
The seasoned judge was visibly shaken up by Amy’s return, remembering her from way back when. The last time Cheryl and Amy saw each other, Amy was a blonde 18-year-old who made Cheryl cry with her emotional performance.
Cheryl hadn’t forgotten how the teen moved her to tears 6 years ago.
Now, Amy had a blossoming family and she finally felt ready to take her shot at the competition once more.
When Simon Cowell asked why Amy wanted to audition again at this exact time in her life, she replied, “Cheryl, that’s why.”
She prepared herself to sing “With You”, taking a deep breath and composing herself properly.
In the end, both Amy and Cheryl couldn’t contain their emotions, breaking down crying by the end of the song.
