Bella Ferraro—On the Fast Track to Stardom

Bella Ferraro

When high school dropout Bella Ferraro auditioned for X Factor Australia in August 2012, she was so nervous she was trembling. She never dreamed her performance of Skinny Love would wow the judges so much that one of them would stand up on the judging table to applaud her before she had even finished. The YouTube video of her audition has already attracted more than four-and-a-half million views.

What’s astonishing to me is how some people are given such an incredible gift. At seventeen, with no formal training, Bella’s voice is ready for the radio. If she gets and follows good career advice, she could be a superstar. And it all looks so effortless for her. It’s downright amusing that she didn’t know how amazing her voice is. It’s also refreshing to read that she would prefer not to win the competition! She’s definitely one to keep an eye on.

    Bella’s first audition was her best performance so far. She suffers from nerves and messed up a couple of her bootcamp auditions. Had it been another contestant forgetting lyrics, they would not have been put through the next stage, i.e. Judge’s House. They have taken a risk with her but she’s only 18 and perhaps she will conquer her nerves. This is the Australian version of the X Factor, despite having two judges from the UK. In case you didn’t know, Guy Sebastian was the very first Australian Idol and has been the most successful Idol here.

    I appreciate the update, Nicke. If Bella is ever going to get over her nerves, she’s getting excellent training to do so!
