Pink tribute artist Zoe Alexander loves her day job but decided to audition for The X-Factor UK to discover her own sound and identity. Her audition was going pretty well — she was chirpy and the judges loved her style. However, the panel thought her cover of Pink’s “So What” was too close to the original and gave her a second chance to put her own spin on a different song.
Unfortunately, Alexander blew her second song but didn’t take too kindly to the constructive criticism the judges gave her. Although they all voted no, they told her she could become a better artist if she took some time to discover her own sound. That’s when the tantrum started. Alexander was completely unprofessional. She not only fired off a false excuse (“You guys told me to sing Pink”) she abrasively threw her microphone offstage and pushed away a camera crew.
For some reason her dad decided to drag her back on stage (perhaps so she could apologize) but all girl did was swear, swear, swear. If the judges weren’t already confident in their decision I’m pretty sure Alexander’s bad attitude sealed it.
