X Factor 2012: Lucy Spraggan tackles Whitney at judges' houses (VIDEO)

Lucy Spraggan (X Factor 2012)

Lucy Spraggan struggled once again on The X Factor 2012 tonight, this time at judges' houses.

In a make or break performance in front of Tulisa and Tinie Tempah, Lucy found it hard to hit the right notes.

Lucy performed I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston for the pair in St Lucia, as Tulisa prepared to pick her live show finalists.

Afterwards, Tinie was unsure: "I don’t know. It’s such a big song to sing."

Tulisa commented: "There’s vocals that are just amazing here today and then she comes on and what she does is so much more simple but it’s that thing isn’t it, she has her niche and does the niche stand up to the big voices?"

Meanwhile Jade Ellis recovered from her bootcamp mess up, singing Stand By Me by Ben E King.

Tulisa said: "There is something about Jade. I know she doesn’t have the strongest vocal but I like her energy, I like her swag, she’s real."

Amy then performed Read All About It by Emeli Sande, with Tulisa reacting: "I’m welling up under my shades. She has got so much soul for somebody so young."

Diva Leanne Robinson performed Hurt by Christina Aquilera, also impressing her mentor.

Tulisa said: "When she gets it it’s like wow, she’s up there with the big ones."
