Kiernan X-Factor fate left unclear
29 Aug 2015 21:09
Mullingar native Kelly Kiernan's X-Factor fate was left in the air on tonight's (August 29) premiere episode of the show's 12th season.

Kiernan's nerves clearly showed as she faltered in front of an unimpressed-looking Simon Cowell during her rendition of Ariana Grande's Just a Little Bit of Your Heart.
-
"I'm just so nervous, I'm so sorry", Kiernan told the judges.
-
Rita Ora sympathised, but fellow judge Nick Grimshaw wasn't quite as forgiving, saying: "I know it's terrifying in here, but that's kind of the deal."
-
However, there may still be hope for the 18-year-old student as no definitive yes or no count was shown for the songstress and her social media accounts seem to suggest that we will see more of her on our screens. Both Kiernan's Instagram and Twitter mention going back to London and a tweet posted on Thursday (August 27) said that the singer was "terrified about this Saturday and Sunday", suggesting that she may be back on our screens as early as tomorrow night.

Elsewhere in the competition, there were yeses for nine acts, including 60-year-old retired grandmother Susan Pryce, who sang No Limit's 2 Unlimited. There were no votes for just three acts throughout the show, including Jon Goodey, an old band mate of co-host Olly Murs.
