Former talk show host Ricki Lake joined the cast of “X Factor Celebrity” hoping to achieve her dream of becoming a singer. It was the first time she’s really sung in front of an audience, and everyone was moved by her emotional performance.
We might know her from “Hairspray” or “The Ricki Lake Show,” but Ricki Lake defines herself as someone who is in a constant state of reinvention. This is the reason that she decided to try to win “X Factor Celebrity” as a singer.
She chose to sing “Us” by James Bay because the lyrics speak to her on an emotional level. She recently suffered a loss, having her husband pass away, and she identifies greatly with the message of the song.
