A QUARTER of the acts in the X Factor live shows hailed from Croydon, proving we have plenty of talent when it come to producing singers. Unfortunately, Rough Copy's elimination at the weekend means we won't have a representative in the final - but our acts have still done Croydon proud. Here's a look back at some of their highlights...
Rough Copy Reached: Semi-finals High point: Their week one performance of Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight earmarked the trio as real contenders to win the show Low point: Being told to tone it down a bit by judges Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne Louis Walsh would say: 'You remind me of a young Boyz II Men' Future prospects: Could fill the JLS-shaped hole in the cool boy/man band market.Hannah Barrett Reached: Quarter-finals High point: Probably her first audition, when the then 16-year-old Greggs bakery worker stunned the judges with an emotional performance of Emeli Sande's Read All About It Low point: Being the drop-zone three times in the live shows Louis Walsh would say: 'You remind me of a young Nina Simone' Future prospects: Hannah had arguably the strongest voice in the competition. She could go far.Lorna Simpson Reached: First week of live shows High point: Her rendition of I Wanna Dance With Somebody was a stand-out performance at the boot camp stage of the show. Low point: Being the first contestant eliminated from the live shows, after receiving the fewest public votes. Louis Walsh would say: 'You remind me of a young Whitney Houston' Future prospects: Not on the X Factor tour, but her big voice could be suited to a West End show
