X Factor star looks totally different 11 years after blazing Tulisa argument

In 2011, George Gerasimou returned to audition as as a solo act on X Factor after being slated by judges two years beforehand when he performed as part of a group.

In his first attempting at auditioning to the hit talent show, George threw his microphone on the ground and stormed off the stage after he was berated by X Factor head honcho Simon Cowell.

Before his next outing on the X Factor audition stage in 2011, he told judges his attitude had improved, saying: “I was really quick-tempered back then."

But soon after he started performing judges halted the audition and the music stopped – causing him to lose his rag once more.

After the judges told him his attitude and singing hadn’t changed, George took aim at judge Tulisa Contostavlos – calling her the “scumbag trying to replace Cheryl [former X Factor judge]".

When Tulisa told George he embarrassed himself, he fired back: “Shut up, you silly ****,” as the audience gasped.

The shamed singer then gave the audience and judges the middle finger, before storming off stage.

When he first appeared on the show, George was clean shaven and sported a stylish moustache, an eyebrow piercing plus short styled hair – but these days he looks completely different.

In snaps shared on his Facebook page, George is seen with a goatee beard and slick brown hair and he no longer wears a piercing.

Little is known about what the X Factor wannabe is doing these days or whether he has pursued his singing career.

During George's ill-fated audition, judge Gary Barlow stopped the music after the audience started chanting for him to get off the stage – but he didn’t take the criticism gracefully.

When the music was switched off he asked "why's it stopped", before standing behind Tulisa as she explained to him his audition was over because the judges had heard enough.

Security had to escort him back to the stage where he was given a roasting by judges.

A disgusted Gary told him: "When you said earlier you'd matured, in what way? You've matured like a bad curry mate."

Tulisa added: “I don’t think that you’ve changed at all. You came and stood right next to me and I felt a lot of aggression off you. You’re very angry.”

George snapped back: “You’re some scumbag trying to replace Cheryl; some scumbag from the block.”

He continued his rant backstage, pointing to Tulisa on the screen and saying: “No dogs allowed! I didn’t know dogs were allowed on X Factor!”

Host Dermot O’Leary then warned him: “Watch your mouth. Don’t call girls that.”

George stormed away from the cameras as he muttered obscenities.
