No this isn’t a line from ‘Harry met Sally’, it was the unanimous decision from the X-Factor judging panel to put a Trafford College student through to the show’s boot camp phase.

Viewers of last Saturday’s audition show saw 19-year-old Mischa Bryan wow the panel with an amazing rendition of Aretha Franklin’s R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Her remarkable performance had ex Destiny’s Child singer, Kelly Rowland on her feet and grooving along. Mischa received cheers and a standing ovation from the audience, with Louis Walsh telling her: “That’s how to do an audition!”

Mischa has completed her first year of a vocal artist programme at the college’s Music Base site in Manchester, and is set to return this month, although further success with the X-Factor may mean her studies are delayed!

Trafford College’s head of music, Jaqueline Hewitt, said; “She has an individual style that really wowed the judges and all tutors and students at The Music Base can’t wait to see how she performs at boot camp.”

FE Week wishes her every success.
