Who is Kevin Davy White? X Factor 2017 contestant who’s through to the live shows who was on The Voice France

HAILING from Paris, soulful singer-songwriter Kevin Davy White is now trying to make it big in the UK.

Who is Kevin Davy White?

Kevin Davy White is a 29-year-old full-time musician from Paris, who has been living in London for the past year.

His appearance on The X Factor this year is not his first stab at talent show glory.

Last year, he auditioned on the French version of The Voice, performing the King's Of Leon track "Use Somebody", but the judges didn't turn and he failed to progress.

He has revealed that he found the X Factor auditions more of a chance to show off their talent than The Voice because the judges get to see the whole package rather than just the range of the singer's voice.

The talented guitarist is a regular performer on the London music scene, and he's featured on France Bleu radio.

His self-penned songs are inspired by soul pioneers Ray Charles and James Brown, and performed the classic James Brown track "Man's World" for his X Factor audition.

When is The X Factor 2017 on ITV and who are the judges?

After launching on September 2, X Factor 2017  will continue every Saturday and Sunday on ITV.

The show begins, as always, with auditions as the nationwide hunt to find this year's winning act begins.

Despite heavy speculation of a judging shake up, the panel will be remaining exactly the same as last year.

This means Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne will hold the hopefuls' fates in their hands.

Alisha Dixon is also appearing in the auditions, having stepped in as a guest judge when Sharon and Nicole were unable to attend.

It's the first time in seven years that X Factor bosses have kept the same judging panel as the year before.

A source said: “The ­chemistry was perfect last year, so it’s only natural to want to bring the same line-up together again."

Dermot O'Leary has returned to hosting duties after making his big comeback to the show last year.
