VIDEO: The X Factor Norwich hopeful Starbuck Friend

Starbuck Friend, 21 and who lives near Magdalen Street in Norwich, was the first person to audition.

Starbuck, who is studying events management and works in a pub, said she wanted to audition because she loves singing. She sang Rabbit Heart by Florence and the Machine for the audition but chose to sing us a different song.

Unfortunately she did not go through to the next round, but she said it was a good experience

She said she would have liked to have had some feedback but was told at this stage The X Factor was only telling people yes or no.

'It would have been better if they had given some feedback on what I could do different next time,' she said.
