Katie Waissel Career


Waissel appeared on "Green Eyed World," a Sprite-sponsored online reality show, from mid-to-late 2009. In the hopes of a record label in 14 episodes of about 5 minutes each, the show centered on her travels in the United States and Europe in the hopes of a record label. Sprite created the first YouTube/Facebook digital network in the world.

Waissel shot a music video for her album "Live and Learn" on "KatieVRecords" during her time on the program, and then released a five-track EP, Songs From Under the Covers. A song on the time, a duet with The Private Life of David Reed "Moving Mountains," would later appear on her self-titled album during her time on The X Factor under the alias "Lola Fontaine." Waissel has been on tour with East 17 and Andy Abraham Sometime after the show, Waissel performed in Hollywood for Paris Hilton with friend and fellow contestant Storm Lee.

Waissel had worked as a receptionist, waitress, and even worked at OK before auditioning for The X Factor. This issue appears in a magazine. She wanted to sing "At Last" by Etta James at her audition, but Simon made her pick another song before she began singing. She was eventually allowed to perform her original song after forgetting the lyrics to We Are the Champions. She performed At Last by Etta James and then transferred to bootcamp by Cheryl and Simon Cowell. She sang "Make You Feel My Love" at bootcamp and expressed surprise as the first girl to be admitted to the judges' house was shocked. Cheryl and Willi.am's house came to a halt when performing "Smile" on the stage, and she had to stop to compose herself after crying, saying "it's an emotional song for me."

"We Are the Champions" was the title she sang on week one of the live shows. As a result of the public vote, she was pushed into the bottom three, but Waissel had to sing in the final showdown with F.Y.D., the other bottom three act from week 1. In the final showdown, she sang "Don't Let Me Down" and was saved from removal by a majority vote, with only Cowell (F.Y.D.). Cole, Dannii Minogue, and Louis Walsh voted to save Waissel (the's mentor's vote against her). According to election results, F.Y.D. was discovered. More votes than Waissel, implying that if Walsh sent the result to chaos, F.Y.D. Without it, the home would have been saved. Katie sang "I'd Rather Go Blind" in the second week of the live broadcasts. This week, she managed to escape the bottom three and gained a seat to the third week, where she performed "I Wan'na Be Like You" in a performance. She sang "Bewitched" in the fourth week of her fourth week and was also in the final showdown with Belle Amie. This time, the vote came to a deadlock, but Waissel was declared safe when it was revealed that Belle Amie had the fewest votes. She was in the final showdown again this week after appearing "Don't Speak" when Cole refused to vote against either act of her choice, but she was saved by a majority vote when she was still standing last to avoid getting the result to deadlock, but she wasn't allowed to vote last. Cohen was shot by Cowell and Walsh, but only Minogue was able to ban Waissel. Cohen gained more votes than Waissel, according to voting results, so Cohen may have been saved if Cole was allowed to vote at a deadlock.

Waissel appeared on "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" for the third week in a row, and this was the fourth time Waissel had been in the final showdown. The result result was chaos, but Aiden Grimshaw was given fewer votes and he was barred from office, according to the public vote. This was the first time a contestant was put into the final showdown four times and survived for the first time in the show's history. She performed "Sex on Fire" and "Everybody Hurts" in the quarter-finals. Waissel received the fewest votes in the series's third double elimination, and was immediately dismissed.
