Andrea Faustini X Factor Review Andrea Faustini Wows Again As The Acts Take On Two

Faustini, who sang The Jackson 5's "Who's Lovin' You" for his first audition was well received by the four judges present that day. Simon Cowell even commented that Faustini "could be really special" in the competition, before receiving a "yes" from all of the judges. Faustini was part of the 114 other acts who successfully got through the Arena Auditions at the SSE Arena in London that year. Together with other male contestants up to the ages of 25, he was later placed into the "Boys" category, mentored by Mel B. Faustini got through the "six-chair challenge" during bootcamp, replacing Hayden Leeman, who had initially been given a seat for his rendition of Joan Jett's "I Love Rock 'n' Roll". Faustini's performance of Whitney Houston's "I Didn't Know My Own Strength" during bootcamp moved judges Mel B and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini to tears as well as earned him praises from Louis Walsh and Cowell. For judges' houses, Mel B brought the "Boys" category to Cancún where Faustini performed Jennifer Hudson's "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" for her and fellow Spice Girls member Emma Bunton. Faustini was one of the four finalists selected to perform at the live shows which began on 11 October 2014.

Faustini performed Michael Jackson's "Earth Song" for the first live show, and quickly became the bookies' favourite to win the show. He was in the bottom two in week 7 with Stevi Ritchie and was saved by Mel B, Fernandez-Versini and Walsh and only Cowell voted to eliminate Faustini. However voting statistics revealed that Ritchie received more votes than Faustini meaning if Walsh sent the vote to deadlock, Ritchie would've been sent through to the quarter-final and Faustini would've been eliminated. Faustini was once again in the Final Showdown in the semi-final with Lauren Platt, but was saved again with only Fernandez-Versini voting to eliminate Faustini. However voting statistics revealed that Platt received more votes than Faustini meaning if there wasn't a Final Showdown and if Walsh or Cowell voted to send Platt through to the final or if the result went to deadlock, Platt would've been sent through to the final and Faustini would've been eliminated. Faustini ended up finishing third, behind runner-up Fleur East and winner Ben Haenow.
