Local X Factor finals pick 3 lucky winners
Shalita Granger, Quewvan Dugar, and Gabe Broussard win audition in front of producers of X Factor in Denver, Colorado
LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — Today was the finals of the local X Factor competition, where fifteen contestants sang for the judges and a room full of people twice before the judges picked the boy, girl, and person over twenty-five that will represent this region in Denver, Colorado. They will audition in front of the actual producers of the X Factor show. The ultimate winner, receiving free airfare and stay in Denver, is Shalita Granger.
"Oh my God! I'm just speechless! It was good, I mean everybody was good I just feel so good! Oh yea! I'm going to X Factor," says Shalita Granger, ultimate winner.
"It's been really cool. There's a young kid who's really impressive. He's like twelve and he got out there with great confidence. That was pretty cool," says one of the judges, local singer and songwriter Caleb Elliott.
That twelve year old is Gabe Broussard. He won the boy division, and Quewvan Dugar won the twenty-five and over spot. All three are guaranteed auditions in front of the X Factor producers!
