Irish brothers wow judges on the X Factor


The X Factor has gone to extreme lengths over the past few years to try and bring back their audience numbers, and who would of thought all it would of taken to catch the interest of the public was two brothers – from Ireland.

Busking brothers Sean and Conor Price impressed The X Factor judges with a fresh take on an old classic, as they managed to give Nicole Scherzinger “goosebumps on my goosebumps”. Their performance was also deemed so good by Simon Cowell, he declared it “one of the best auditions we’ve had”.

The siblings from Blessington in Wicklow offered up a modern rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s All Along The Watchtower, complete with rapping from guitar-playing Sean, 17, and singing from 15-year-old Conor. They were given four yes votes and have earned a place in the Bootcamp round of the ITV reality programme.

After their audition the two lads went from unknowns to social media celebrities with many people coming out to support the two from not just Ireland but the UK too. They have already built up what seems a huge fan base online and look set to rock the bootcamp stages of the show!
