Nicola–Marie splits the X Factor 2012 panel on tonight's audition show.
"This is the biggest thing I’ve ever done in my life, it’s like what, 34 years this is all I’ve thought about," Nicola-Marie says.
The 35-year-old works as a Amy Winehouse/Lady Gaga tribute act, but Louis Walsh seems to think she's someone else!
He says: "You know who you remind me of? You remind me of Davina McCall, you look a bit like her."
After finally getting around to performing, Nicola-Marie sings Tell it to my heart by Taylor Dayne for the judges.
"Wow Nicola, oh Nicola, I don’t know if I liked that or not," Gary admitted. "It was a bit like the opening to a magic act or something. It’s just not current, it’s not now, people don’t do this."
Tulisa was also unsure what she thought about the performance: "In the beginning I didn’t like it…and then you did the splits, and now do I really, really not like it or do I actually want to see it again!"
Mel B however was won over immediately, raving: "I don’t know what he’s talking about, I properly loved it, it was full on, yeah it is a little bit dated, so what, but you grabbed my attention."
And Louis seemed to have spotted his new favourite act, telling the other judges: "The thing about Nicola is she gave it everything."
But an unamused Gary hits back: "Guys, I don’t know what planet you two are on but I’m going to kick off the voting, I have to say I didn’t really enjoy the audition, I found it dated and ultimately I’d find you really annoying if you were in my category."
