X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson says singing live an "incredible feeling"

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 singing sensation Ella Henderson has described singing live on the show as an "incredible feeling"

Last night the 16-year-old wowed with a cover of Lovin' You, getting praise from all four judges.

Speaking before last night's performance, Ella said: "Before my performance last Saturday, I was so nervous.

"Two minutes before walking on stage, I gathered myself and took myself into my zone to give the best performance I could.

"It was nerve-wracking but, at the same time, such an incredible feeling."

Speaking to This Is Grimsby, 16-year-old Ella revealed her secret to success was never stopping!

"Basically, any time I have to myself, I try to use it wisely, so if I feel tired I will have a nap but if I'm feeling unsure with something about my performance, I will try and spend time in my room and work on it," she said. "As much as this is a competition, I don't really see it as that. I feel like the contestants get along really well and we are all sad to see an act leave each week."

The X Factor 2012 continues tonight at 8:00PM on ITV1 with the latest results show.

Last night saw the remaining contestants singing tracks with a love and heartbreak theme before the public voted once again.

Tonight's show will see the second elimination of the series, as well as performances from US country star Taylor Swift and former X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson.
