X Factor 2012: Cher reveals she cried over Ella Henderson's Believe cover!

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

Cher (the real Cher that is, not the X Factor contestant) has revealed she watched Ella Henderson's take on Believe from the weekend, and ended up crying herself!

The American singer tweeted today: "work Done ...Went on Utube 2 c young girl sing Believe!Tears came 2 my eyes! So Touching! a Great version of a Great Song.WE Can Share It !"

Ella admitted she was shocked to have not only touched millions of viewers with the performance, but Cher herself.

The 16-year-old, who will be competing for a spot at judges' houses this weekend, said: "I’m still pinching myself! To have the ACTUAL Cher tweet that she’d seen my performance was mind-blowing. I’ve been smiling all day. It is quite frankly UNBELIEVABLE! I can’t believe she cried."

And Cher wasn't the only one to cry, with Nicole Scherzinger also shedding a few tears.

"I had no idea I made her cry," Ella told the official ITV1 X Factor website this evening. "I was lost in my performance and totally unaware of my surroundings.

"I feel honoured that my performance touched her so much. I hope people are crying tears of happiness!"

However Ella insisted that her favourite judge was, perhaps unsurprisingly, girls mentor Tulisa!

She said: "I love Tulisa! We made such a connection after my Audition when she came backstage to hug me."

We'll see this weekend with Ella gets through to judges' houses!

Now let's all watch THAT performance from Ella.

Amazing.
