Rowetta Takes a Tumble at Talentworks Final!

Published on August 9th 2005.


The Talentworks grand final took place on Saturday afternoon, crowning a new winner from a talented bunch of performers, but not before Rowetta from X Factor came a cropper and took a tumble off the stage.

A busy day in town with first the Urban X event and then Dpercussion both taking place on the same day, Talentworks still managed to pull in a decent sized crowd, many of whom have been following the heats over the recent weeks.

Rowetta was there to help with the panel of judges to choose a winner from six finalists who had made it through weeks of gruelling heats. Other judges included Hard Rock Café’s flamboyant manager Ian Duncan Smith – a bit of a Richard Parks on the sly judging by Saturday – former winner Shaun Fields, Sue Morrallee from Hard Rock Casino and Bob Crossland from Playlist Ltd..

It was 14 year old Cory Spedding from Cumbria who took the top honours and bowled the judges over with her performances of ‘Bring him Home’ from Les Miserables and her own Song, ‘Orange Flame’ which is about bullying. The judges saw her as a potential theatre performer in the making.

Cory will now get to make her own music video, as well as the opportunity to perform at Hard Rock Cafe, live on the Michelle Mullane GMR radio show AND a 3 hour recording session! Oh, and she'll get the chance to be professionally shot by our own Matt Seed.

The other contestants were not to be outdone though with great performances from runner up Alexandra Gaskell, second runner up Jamie Lee and the others: Chez Davies, Phillip Maguire, and Dominique & Jetria.

Rounding up the day, Rowetta, almost an X Factor finalist, got up on stage to perform a number of her own to the masses. Unfortunately, things didn’t quite go to plan as the local lass took a trip backwards and fell off the stage. She still managed to finish the song though before everyone headed off down to Dpercussion to fall about all over the place themselves.
