X Factor Mary who is from Ireland has quit her job at Tesco’s for the X Factor tour and is already planning her first record.

When interviewed by the Irish Independent about leaving Tesco, Mary said: “I had to ring them over the weekend and arrange to pop in for my P45. I’m actually quite scared about it because Tesco has been my safety net during the past six months.

“No matter what happened on X Factor, I always knew Tesco would take me back.”

Commenting about her debut album, Mary states “Nigel’s worked with Madonna on the film soundtrack for Evita. He’s done all the soundtrack albums for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals. But what most impressed me was he’s recorded Shirley Bassey who is my all-time hero.”

Mary is due to complete her album by the end of January. X Factor mentor Louis Walsh has chosen all the songs Mary will cover. Artists Mary is likely to cover include Shirley Bassey, Dusty Springfield and her amazing rendition of ‘It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World’ by James Browns

“Louis has a great track record on picking songs, he will have the final word,” she said.

You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me

Tesco’s are backing Mary Byrne ( bit of free good publicity me thinks )

Mary who sang a Dusty Springfield classic “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me” on this week show was simply amazing again

last week she sang the all time classic from James Brown’s ‘It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World’, see below for both performances

a close friend of the X Factor told Ireland’s Evening Herald: “Last week was a tough one for everyone because it was the first live show but this week will be even tougher for Mary now that she’s shown what she can do.

“Her fans are expecting another brilliant performance from her and to be blown away again by that big voice. It’s nearly more important that she does well this weekend as she wants to prove it wasn’t just a one-off performance.”

The insider continued: “Louis has chosen a great song for her to sing. He just handed her his iPod and told her to listen to it over and over until she had it inside out. As she listened to it they just kept looking at each other, and then Mary started laughing nervously and they nodded to each other – I think they both know this will be amazing, if she can nail it.”

personal note – sorry for the lack of updates I have been quite ill but I am much better now
