Future of X-Factor Vox Pop: Here to Stay?


Cardiff born John Adams, former X-factor contestant, performed to kick off Cardiff Fashion Week. He performed live on Sunday 21 October, to an excited crowd in the Mermaid Quay in an event, Arresting Fashion, held between 12pm and 4pm.

John Adams impressed the judges in his audition in 2011 with his rendition of Damien Rice’s Cannonball. The original version immediately shot up in the charts. He went on to be in the final 12 boys in the X-Factor competition.

He tweeted yesterday: @John_Anthony1 “Had an absolute ball performing at the Bay! Thank you to everyone that supported us.”

Fans were impressed with the performance. One fan, @clareosulleh, tweeted: “In Cardiff Bay listening to the lovely @John_Anthony1”. 

The former maths teacher is now focusing on singing, acting and modeling ambitions.
