Garly Barlow said, ‘Kye I think the greatest thing with you is the fact that we’ve not only found a great singer, we’ve also found an artist. This is someone who knows exactly how they should sound, what they should be singing, this is extremely exciting.’
Louis Walsh said, ‘Kye you’ve been cleaning chimneys with a voice like this?! You were born to sing, you weren’t born to clean chimneys. “We’re looking for The X Factor and I think we found The X Factor in you.’
Tulisa Contostavlos, ‘Kye I could listen to you sing all day long. That is the kind of voice that could sell albums.’
Rita said, ‘Kye, Oh my gosh. You made RIP sound so cool man! Can I tell you something….you’re a superstar! You’re an actual superstar.’
