Fans delighted as X Factor kicks off with stellar act
Even Simon Cowell hinted Rak-su could be the show’s best group act since Little Mix.
The X Factor has apparently got off to a flying start with fans blown away by the very first act.
ITV’s hit singing contest returned for its 14th season on Saturday night, kicking off the first round of auditions with boyband Rak-su.
While they failed to impress judges Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne with their Justin Timberlake cover, their all-singing, dancing and rapping original track I’m Feeling You proved a hit with both the panel and viewers at home.
Echoing the lyrics themselves, one fan wrote: “I’m feeling this song on X factor.”
Another added: “Really really like the first act on X factor omg I want that song they wrote downloaded on my phone.”
