The youngster who was part of a duo, called Silver Rock, with 22-year-old Jerrie Dila, was put through to the arena stage as a solo artist along with her friend Jerrie, by the judges because as a duo they were not good enough.

The teenager, who admitted she was “so, so, so nervous”, dashed off stage to her family after forgetting the words to her version of Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing and needed a reminder from show host Dermot O’Leary before going back on and wowing the crowd.

Judge Gary Barlow told her she had “potential beyond belief”, while Louis Walsh said she could be better than Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke – two of the show’s previous stars.
