X Factor got a sample of Yass talent this week.
Mt Carmel student Michaela Swadling travelled to Albury on Wednesday to audition for the top-rating talent search program.
Friends Anna Kirk and Eleanor Fry went along for moral support.
They were among around 300 who turned up to the Albury Entertainment Centre to impress judges.
Michaela caught the attention of local media, with her soulful voice and is featured on the Border Mail website – here’s the link.
The 15-year-old made it through the initial round and now faces an anxious wait until April next year to find out if she is through to the next round.
Good luck Michaela!
