Rebecca Ferguson stepped onto the X Factor stage on Saturday night for perhaps the biggest moment of her career so far, a duet with world superstar Christina Aguilera.
It was not the best of the three duets of the night but Rebecca held her own and did a pretty good job as we would expect. Christina on the other hand came across as a bit of a diva and perhaps tried to over shadow her fledgling partner on the night. As a result we felt the performance looked uncomfortable in parts and lacked a little bit of chemistry.
However, a speechless Rebecca said after the performance of Christina’s biggest hits, Beautiful: “I’m just made up. It was amazing.”
Christina Aguilera said that she is a big fan of Rebecca’s too, adding: “She is incredible; I saw a tape of her before coming here singing a Nina Simone song and I was blow away. She is a very unique talent.”
Christina Aguilera will be hoping that tonight’s performance will kick-start her career after she has taken time out in recent years to have her son Max, with her now ex-husband Jordan Bratman.
Rebecca has become something of a style icon over the past few weeks and top designers and jewellers have hinted that they would like to work with the young mum after the show using her model good looks.
Last month Rebecca took part in a glitzy fashion shoot for women’s magazine Grazia where she wore a stunning ruffled dress in pastel shades designed by Felicity Brown.
The designer explained that the dress “really suit[s] Rebecca’s personality, being girly soft, gentle but also flamboyant.”
