In her audition, she performed 'Say You Love Me', however judge Simon Cowell stopped her early into her performance, and asked her to sing another song. She then performed 'With or Without You' by U2, however it was not enough to keep her in the competition and she was sent home. Simon compared her to a 'club singer', whilst Alesha Dixon commented that she 'didn't really get into the song'.
Jade's brother, Calum, auditioned directly after her audition. He recieved Simon's Golden Buzzer and reached the Final of the show, finishing 6th overall.
