Britney Spears impersonator Lorna Bliss, from Haverhill, appears on X Factor
Britney Spears impersonator Lorna Bliss, from Haverhill, terrified judges on ITV show X Factor by mounting them and chasing them in her underwear on Sunday’s (September 9) show.
Lorna, 33, appeared in the auditions wearing a thong and bra, and covered slightly by a body stocking – the top of which was removed mid-performance.
She sang Britney’s ‘Till The World Ends’, but instead of staying on stage to sing she crawled down the stairs to confront the judges.
She straddled Louis Walsh before grappling with Tulisa Contostavlos, and then chased Gary Barlow around through the audience before writing around on some members of the crowd.
Unsurprisingly, Lorna received a decisive three ‘nos’ from the judges to boot her out of the competition.
After escaping Lorna’s advances, Gary said: “That’s what I call a lucky escape.”
When Lorna said she performed the raunchy routine to get on the fast-track to fame, Gary added: “There’s another good way of being noticed and that’s to sing really well.
“I need to judge vocals, stage presence and performance and there wasn’t any of that, just shock factor.”
Louis said: “I’ve been doing this for nine years and this is the first time this has happened.”
Criticising Lorna’s fame hunger, he added: “I think you just want to be on TV.
“It doesn’t matter what show, it could be Jeremy Kyle and you’d be there.”
Slamming Lorna’s motives for being on the show, Tulisa said: “You’re in the for the fame, not to be an artist of a musician.”
Lorna retorted: “I’m just doing what I have to do to stay in the game.
“I’m doing what I have to do, just like everyone else.”
Looking rather dejected after her second television talent show rejection, Lorna said: “I guess I should have just stood there and sang like everyone else does.”
Before taking to the stage for her raunchy routine, she proclaimed: “I just love to be on TV and I want to be on TV all time, on every channel in every country.
“I would like to be a household name, a famous actress, a famous singer, a famous cleaner if there is one.
“I want to live the dream and take it all the way to the top.”
The auditions were held at London’s O2 Arena on May 20.
Lorna has previously appeared on Britain’s Got Talent to perform a similar routine, singing Britney’s ‘Toxic’ clad in just a G-string and diamontes, and again getting intimate with some of the judges.
