With her rendition of Shirley Bassey’s “Diamonds are Forever,” Gaga Lord, a self-described “dinner lady” from the Philippines, has wowed the judges of X Factor UK.
40-year-old Gaga Lord flawlessly sang the popular James Bond theme for the contest’s audition and her voice was described as “bold and brassy.”
After she sang a few lines of the famous song, Judge Simon Cowell made her pause, and said Lord’s performance made him “feel like James Bond.” Cowell then suggested that to complete the “James Bond” ambience, he asked two co-judges Nicole Scherzinger and Alesha Dixon to get on the scene and dance with Gaga Lord.
So the three adorable ladies performed — two very gorgeous women as back-up dancers and Gaga’s voice that is ‘licensed to kill’.
Gaga Lord said she is married to a guy named Chris Lord, and that she works in a cafeteria. She also said the kids didn’t know she would audition for the show.
Now the question, did she make it for the next phase of the competition? Four yes from the judges!
