She is a 17 year old girl who just finished high school and had the opportunity to sing on The X Factor. For her performance Samantha Lavery wore short black overalls, high heels, and a full face of makeup. It is clear that from the beginning she does not sit well with Simon.
He is an intimidating guy, so he says ”I find her…distant,” as the teenager walks up to the three judges for the performance.
Simon then tells her, ”I kind of wish that we had met without your pop star image. I think with you, we’ve had a bit of a mask put up. I’d almost like to see you without so much makeup.”
So Samantha takes a deep breath as the two female judges rise to the young girls defense.
Finally, she walks off the set.
But to return hours later as a nearly unrecognizable version of herself. She has been replaced by a fresh-faced girl who actually looks her age.
And when it’s time for her performance, let’s just say they are floored!
