As seen in this year’s final audition program, the ‘X Factor’ judge got something of a surprise when his ‘bonus father’ Ib suddenly stood in front of the judging panel to take part in the competition.

Martin Jensen says that his bonus father, who is his mother’s husband, has both a talent for singing and acting, so at first he could not find out if it was too fun or not.

‘I’ve seen him perform many times when I lived at home, so I was really scared if he meant it. I thought, no, no no, you do not mean that to those in power, “says Martin Jensen with a laugh.

But that was just a joke.

Martin Jensen turned 30 on the day they filmed the last audition program, and therefore bonusfar-Ib competed in the audition round solely to make fun of Martin Jensen.

“He had been practicing for two days to sing falsely and stop in the middle of the song,” explains Martin Jensen, who admits that his family took his ass.

“Are you crazy, I had no idea.”

It was only when the bonus father, as mentioned, stopped in the middle of his performance and then started singing Tommy Seebach’s birthday song ‘Hip hurray, it’ my birthday ‘, that the ten fell.

After this, it poured in with family members and friends in the studio, who subsequently hung out to party further with Martin Jensen after the recordings.

“Then we went out and ate some food and celebrated it there,” says Martin Jensen, adding that at first he was a little upset that the ‘X Factor’ production for the second year in a row had auditioned for his birthday.

‘I do not know why auditions should always be put on top of my birthday. I actually asked this year if they could move it one day. I did not feel like sitting and making TV on my 30th birthday. But no, the premises were booked, so there was nothing to do, “he says and can today be happy that it still ended up being a festive birthday.
