Edinburgh born X Factor contestant Storm Lee has made it through to the live finals stage of the popular TV series.Storm’s Edinburgh based cousins David and Steven Pickering were amongst the millions of viewers who tuned in to watch his memorable first audition which involved in a verbal sparring match with Simon Cowell over Storm’s wacky stage name. Steven Pickering, whose mother Mary was Storm’s father older sister, admits “I have not seen Storm ,who was just Lee back then, for 30 years.  I am glad he has made it through to the final in X Factor though, it’s nice to see him doing well as he had a sad childhood mainly down to his no good mum”.   David Pickering adds “he has a good voice it’s just unfortunate he comes across a such an obnoxious character”.  David who impersonates Elvis for fun goes on to say “it would be good to catch up with him once all this X Factor stuff is over, I could give him some singing tips!”
