Simon Said Her Song Choice Was Nuts. Seconds In, Forced To Eat His Own Words

In a competition like X Factor, the song choice is almost as important as the voice of those who compete for a place in the competition. Contents only have a couple of minutes to showcase their talent and prove they deserve to be a part of the show.

But her unique take of a song we all know by heart has surprised both the judges and the audience. It’s extremely difficult to tackle a song that already has an identity and make it your own, which is what makes this performance so impressive. Take a look:
