X Factor 2023 First Audition Episode – Highlights
ANGELIKA BOVE NIGHT Arisa
Angelica never sang in public because she was always “a little jealous of my voice.” And it is her voice that speaks for her about what she has experienced over the past year: the pure emotion in the notes of Arisa’s “La notte.” That’s all she needs at the X Factor 2023 auditions – first aired yesterday on Sky and broadcast on NOW and always available on demand – to get 4 yeses from the judges, who thus open the doors of Bootcamps to her.

MATTEO ALIENO I DON’T CRY Franco Califano
On stage at The Intensity, Matteo Alieno, a young artist with an almost Beatlesque appearance, introduced himself to the judges by offering “Io non piango,” a moving song by the great Roman singer-songwriter.
