The next episode dedicated to the Home Views where each judge will bring 5 aspiring competitors
X Factor 2023 bootcamp, the game is over: even Ambra Angiolini and Morgan, as their fellow judges Fedez and Dargen D’Amico had already done a week ago, formed their teams to bring to the Home Visits in the episode aired yesterday , the last step of the selections before the Live bets. Twenty competitors survived the very tight chair joust, 5 for each judge. As always, Francesca Michielin did the honors by hosting the show and interacting behind the scenes with the aspiring contestants before and after their performances, gathering their emotions and moods.
What happened to Bootcamps
Opening the dance was Ambra Angiolini, who brought with her: Gaetano De Caro, who presented a cover of ‘Pensiero stupendo’ by Patty Pravo, confirming the exceptional vocal skills shown at the Auditions; Isobel Kara with their very original ‘Salento’ version of ‘NIMPHA – The story of a nymphomaniac’ by Madame; Jacopo Martini with his unreleased ‘Dispetto’, a catchy piece with 80s sounds; Matteo Pierotti with his ‘Più o meno’ and a highly inspired songwriting style; Angelica Bove with a highly emotional cover of ‘All I Want’ by Kodaline that made Ambra cry.
For Morgan’s team, however, those who won the 5 available seats, all obtained with surprising switches, were: the Animaux Formidables, with their very personal sound on the cover of ‘Who Said’ by Planet Funk; Niccolò Selmi, with his intense version of ‘Elliot’s Song’ by Dominic Fike; Manifesto who with ‘Black’ made their judge rediscover Pearl Jam; Anna Castiglia and her unreleased reinterpretation of ‘Un Tempo Piccolo’ by Franco Califano; and the Sickteens, with their bold, rock-coated cover of Justin Bieber’s ‘Hold On’.
As always, Francesca Michielin did the honors by hosting the show and interacting behind the scenes with the aspiring contestants before and after their performances, gathering their emotions and moods.
What happens in the next episode, the Home Visits
In a week the 4 judges will take the five aspiring contestants each to the Home Visits. They will spend many hours with them, to get to know each other better and make the best choices possible. Here are the 4 teams arriving at next week’s Home Visit: with Fedez there will be Lorenzo Bonfanti, Sara Sorrenti, Giulia Petronio, Maria Tomba, Asia Leva; Dargen D’Amico will bring with him Andrea Settembre, Fabio D’Errico, Stunt Pilots, Edoardo Brogi, Fabrizio Longobardi; Ambra Angiolini will be accompanied by Gaetano De Caro, Isobel Kara, Matteo Pierotti, Jacopo Martini, Angelica Bove; with Morgan there will be Animaux Formidables, Niccolò Selmi, Manifesto, Anna Castiglia, Sickteens. In each team, the unquestionable but very difficult response of the judges will send 3 to the Live Show: who will be the protagonists of X Factor 2023?
