X Factor 2012: Amy Mottram says audition was 'terrifying'

Amy Mottram (X Factor 2012)
X Factor 2012 hopeful Amy Mottram has admitted she found her audition 'terrifying' at the weekend.

The 16-year-old from Essex wowed the judges with her cover of Adele's One and Only to make it through to bootcamp on last night's latest show.

Gary Barlow raved: "The confidence in your voice, and the technique... it's gorgeous."

And Louis Walsh told the teenager: "Amy, where did the voice come from? This little girl, this big soulful voice, you're the reason I love this job. You've got soul and it's a big yes."

Speaking after her audition, Amy confessed she was terrified about stepping out on stage.

"I did good, but it was terrifying," she said.

The Romford local went on: "However once I was on there I loved it, it was fine."

Amy, now one of the favourites in the girls category, revealed: "I've sung since I was a little baby, I had my first karaoke machine when I was three.

"My favourite song was Over The Rainbow by Judy Garland."
