X Factor 2012 bootcamp: Ella Henderson makes Nicole cry with 'Believe' by Cher

Ella Henderson (The X Factor 2012)

Ella Henderson wows on The X Factor 2012 tonight with a cover of Cher's Beleive.

The 16-year-old, who previously wowed the judges with one of her original songs at her audition, says: "Today instead of just doing a song that I’d normally just go for and be like ‘yeh I can do that’ I wanted to challenge myself a bit more and pick a song that was completely out of the box and out of my comfort zone.

"I keep going through it in my head and trying to put my twist on it because so different from what I’d normally do. I really hope they like it."

The song reduced Nicole to tears while a standing ovation from the crowd in Liverpool follows.

Gary tells her: "I’ve got to say, when I read you were going to sing that song, if I was going to have a top five of the most annoying songs of all time, that would come fairly close to the top for me, but today I would play lots of money to hear that version of the song again. That was amazing, well done."

He added: "All of a sudden those lyrics meant something completely different."

Still in tears, Nicole reacts: "You can’t judge that you just have to be honoured. We can’t touch her, we just have to be in awe of her. I’m done"
