Mundo Fox hosted a local X-Factor audition giving one boy, one girl, and a vocal group a chance for a fast track ticket to the national X-Factor audition statge. Judges saw undiscovered talent from 8 to 15 years old.
"You need to have a lot of personality and I think that that's important, it's important too," says Stewart.
"Ever since I was little I've always sung around my house and I've always liked the feeling of being able to let yourself go by singing," says Daniella Dominguez.
