Ella Henderson may be just 16 years old and, as such, the youngest singer on X Factor UK, but she’s definitely got what it takes to make it to the top. Last night, she blew competition out of the water.Check out the video above to see her amazing, incredibly effortless and breathtaking performance.
Ella, who impressed judges from the first round of auditions, chose Take That’s “Rule the World” for her first showing in front of the judges on the live shows and, boy did she deliver!
Gary Barlow himself, who penned the song and sang it with Take Back, was equally impressed and, for a brief while, at a loss for words.
“I’ve got to be honest I’ve got to be honest there is nothing worse than someone singing my song 10 times better than me. Stunning… Oh my god 16-years-old, the feel, the way you sing, it is absolutely extraordinary,” he gushed.
Louis Walsh was just as wowed, telling Ella she was the best voice on the show since Leona Lewis some years ago.
Ella will learn whether she’ll be on the show until next week tonight, during the eliminations.
