IT HAS BEEN REVEALED BY A FRIEND THAT THE X FACTOR STAR HAS PASSED AWAY
Known for her popular audition in 2008 as a 'holistic vocal coach helping people to find their voice', Ariel Burdett was discovered dead in her home in Leeds two weeks ago. Police were called to a home in a woodhouse area of West Yorkshire, where they found her body.
Friends of Burdett have shared the news over Facebook, with one saying, "It is with great sadness that I post this, as I have only just found out myself."
Fans of Ariel, real name Amy, have shared their sincerity over social media platforms. She may not have impressed the judges, but the watchers of the show were given a performance they wouldn't forget.
Burdett auditioned for the popular show, the X Factor, in 2008 In the process, she made a bold impression by entering the audition room and ripping off her audition ID number, throwing it at the judges' panel.
She continued with this sass throughout the performance, having to eventually be escorted out of the room after cursing at the judges.
Once she had left the room, Simon jokingly asked, "so, yes or no?"
Her attitude struck the country, with her becoming one of the most favourable acts on the show to date in many people's hearts.
For the last 11 years since being on the show, she transitioned her name to 'Arabella Starchild'. Her appearance changed since the show, too, changing to a more 'casual' appearance. She posted a few covers on a YouTube channel, all of which were a lot less hectic than her crazy audition.
Her death, living only to age 38, has struck a lot of people personally and condolences go to the people affected by her death.
