See wacky Wagner too!

HIS bizarre performances were described as "bonkers" by Simon Cowell and were regularly slated by the other judges.

But Wagner, pictured, has become one of the most talked-about finalists in X Factor history - and a national celebrity too.

Next Thursday, the Brazilian-born crooner will be appearing at Glam - formerly Zanzibar - in Stockton, and joining him on the bill is fellow finalist Katie Waissel - who will also be performing at The Empire, in Middlesbrough on the same night.

Wagner Carrilho split public opinion with his theatrical performances and questionable vocals on the X Factor. Initially eliminated from the competition he was chosen as Louis Walsh's wildcard entry for the live ITV1 finals. He staged a series of bizarre performances and survived the public vote week after week. But his stint ended a fortnight ago.

Bill Surtees, area manager for Harewood Operations who own Glam, said everybody was looking forward to to the gig. "It should be a really big night," he said. Whoever finishes fourth on the show tomorrow will also be appearing at Glam, on Stockton's High Street, on Thursday December 23. All nights are for over-18s only.
