The Truth About X Factor Star Stacy Francis's Past

| Filed under: Tom CruiseX Factor

Twitter wars aside, we'd like to clarify one point: We do think Stacy Francis is extremely talented. At her core, she has a remarkable and powerful voice and we're glad that she is finally getting her shot to shine on The X Factor.

Or is she?

We've actually just come to learn that Stacy has had QUITE a career prior to singing before Simon Cowell and Co., as she worked STEADILY as a performer on Broadway, movies/tv and with HUGE musical acts for several YEARS!

In the 90s, Stacy found herself associating with some big name talents. Sources reveal that she toured with the likes of Madonna, Prince and Chaka Khan, while also being a regular on New York Broadway stages, like Smokey Joe's Cafe and Footloose. Beyond that, she also had a lucrative career on the screen, according to IMDB, as she had a role in the 1990's flick The Bonfire of the Vanities and a couple episodes of Third Watch.

Huh. Such incredible opportunities for someone who led us to believe she had struggled for years to even muster the courage to sing in front of other people. Doesn't seem that way to us. Why, just look at her performing for Tom Cruise and all the guests of his birthday party in 2004!

Oh yeah! Watch the video (above)! That's Stacy herself, crooning out a version of You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' by the Righteous Brothers. And that's Tom Cruise, in the front row.

Wow! So many celebrities! You would think at least one of them would introduce her to the right people. You would think all the years of touring and being on Broadway would've helped her catch the eye of some producer. And even if not, you would think these would be the kinds things that would be brought up in a background check for a major television show trying to pass her off as a amateur.

A little suspicious if you ask us! What other secrets do you have, Stacy?

P.S. - You should also google her name with VH1’s Beverly Hills Fabulous. Think that might surprise you as well.

    This video is from one of Cruise's CULT birthday parties.
    You know…where they worship him as if he were a deity?
    Anyhoo, would Stacy Francis, a member of that Evil Predatory $pace Alien Hypnotic Mind Control Hollywood CULT, lie?
    I think so. Yes.

    Who's "us"? VFTW?

    Stacy Francis isn't hiding anything Perez. I saw her first audition live. She talked about having been on Broadway amongst other things. She also told Simon how many kids she has followed by, "I NEED A NEW BABY DADDY SIMON!" AND you didn't see that part of her audition on tv either- which by the way was hilarious!. Remember tv is edited and you of all people shouldn't be so quick to judge!

    Oh, Perez. It's been a while since you stole stories from our website. Good to see you're still lurking and stealing other people's stuff.

    BUSTED by VFTW. To funny.

    Um, there are so many contestants that have successful perfoming backgrounds and it's not brought up on these shows. Remember, they're trying to give the contestants a 'story'. They also usually don't mention anything when a contestant has already been on another talent show.

    I liked this article better when I saw it yesterday on Vote For The Worst.

    So what if she has a lot of professional experience! Obviously for her to have been employed under so many top venues she IS talented, professional and deserves stardom. MUCH more than some one who happens to sing in the shower or auditoned on a whim! The entertainment industry is brutal and tough to get ahead in. That just proved STACY HAS PAID HER DUES AND DESERVES TO BE RECOGNIZED! Also, entertainers may get employment but by no means cash in. They are living pay check to pay check often and struggle to make a living at what they do. Also Jack is right - those shows script and edit stuff the way they see fit. TEAM STACY! Although for her sake I hope she is not hooked up with that cult. That is not good!

    She probably didn't make it because of her DIVA ATTITUDE. Talent is one thing - getting along with others is another.

    Re: Jack75 – If we didn't see it on tv, then it is hard to vote appropriately when you don't have all the information.

    Re: Snookietoes – Kind of obvious that she is a mental mess with all that crying and mascara running down her face. She is a DIVA and an actress. If she was that good AND had a good personality, someone would have already picked her up.

    Can she be that desperate for stardom to go on Beverly Hills Fabulous and volunteer the information that the baby she is very pregnant with is not her current Beverly Hills dentist husband's? Sounds like a pretty stupid, low class career move to me. Hmmmm? Maybe that's why he divorced her. She just seems very conniving to me. Plus I find the tonality of her vocals a little shrill and dated. I guess all that Scientology training taught her well.

    Re: Jack75 – I agree 100% as I was also there for the live auditions. She was amazing and real and the audience loved her !

  14. 14

    IM in shock!!! ok this fraud should not win X-FaCTor!!!

  15. 15

    Just Google scientology and Stacy Francis. I think you'll find all you need to know.

  16. 16

    Not too different from Rachel Crow singing for the likes of Timbaland. Her youtube page has since been taken down after her audition back in April. You'll soon see that surface as well. Regardless of these people's pasts they are absolutely talented and have been given this chance.. Frenchie Davis is a huge talent and has experienced many things however has never had a producer / recording contract. What's the big deal with Stacy Francis or Rachel Crow for that matter..?!?!?

  17. 17

    OMG VFTW! You don't own the freakin story, calm the frack down!

  18. 18

    What is so hilarious is how you get your panties in a wad when someone doesn't just fall over themselves and worship you and then you try to destroy them. Who's the bully Perez? Who's the bully?

    This article was even more interesting when I wrote it for votefortheworst, before it was copied from me (even the same title) without being given credit.

    What a fraud.

  20. 20

    In the early 90's, she was in a r&B group called Ex-Girlfriend. They hada couple of modest hits. One of the titles were "WHY DON'T YOU COME HOME".

    The point of X Factor is to find/make a star, so it hard to call one of the contestants a fraud when they've never actually been one. Besides, you know editing on X Factor is going to emphasize her struggles rather than her periods of success…they want to highlight her current uphill climb on the show. So many gigging artists get to meet bigger names every day, but few ever get the opportunity or have the talent to make a name for themselves on a show like X Factor. Francis put it best when she noted that despite past work the public has really never heard of her until now.

    Re: Snookietoes – You are right it doesn’t matter had she been in a million Broadway plays, HOWEVER, it DOES MATTER that she has portrayed herself as a struggling single mom who has been merely singing aretha in the bathroom (remember when she said that?), which we were led to believe was the closest she had ever come to performing for an audience – she's been on broadway for yrs proving that she is 1. A songstress 2. An actress & because she denies said facts 3. A liar
