Welcome to the website amyconnolly.co.uk set up in tribute to the very talented X-factor 2008 contestant Amy Connolly.
19 year old Amy Connolly from Watford reduced judge Cheryl Cole to tears at her X-factor audition in London with a heart warming rendition of the Faith Hill song "There you'll be". Cheryl comforted Amy with a hug following her successful audition after hearing how Amy had lost her mum at a young age. After hearing that her widowed dad David is now Amy's biggest fan, Cheryl said she loved the song and told Amy that she did her dad proud.
Amy was only 7 years old when her mother Rosemarie sadly died of breast cancer aged only 45. Now Amy, a customer services rep, has said she desperately wants to win the 2008 X-factor in memory of her mum and also as a tribute to her 61 year old father David.
Having successfully completed the audition stage with yes votes from Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole, Amy has earned a well deserved place at boot camp.
Hopefully Amy can go all the way in this years x-factor. Good luck Amy, we wish you every success in fulfilling your dreams.
