X Factor star Ella Henderson has got the backing of British superstar Adele, following tonight's latest live show.
This evening saw Ella wow the judges with Loving You by Minnie Ripperton, with Gary saying: "Wow, thank you, Ella. What a risk you took, I know you've been worried about it but you completely nailed it. another great week for you."
But Louis Walsh told the teenager: "It's so hard to think you're only sixteen and you can sing that big song... the only thing is, I think you're mentor has been watching too many Adele videos! I don't like is that you've been styled like Adele!"
However Adele seemed to take the comparison to Ella as a compliment.
She tweeted during this evening's live show: "Ella Henderson on X Factor is absolutely incredible! I LOVE her!! Good luck xx"
No doubt it'll be a huge confidence boost to the 16-year-old, who is the favourite to win the show already.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes revealed last week: "Ella's the first act in X Factor history to be an odds-on shot before the second live show has even aired. Louis's integrity as a judge has come under fire this week and the odds suggest it won't be long before he's eliminated from the show either."
The X Factor continues tomorrow night with the second live results show on ITV1.
