X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson "ecstatic" over praise from Adele

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Ella Henderson is "ecstatic" after getting the support of Adele to win the show.

Saturday 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 that you've been styled like Adele!"

However Adele seemed to take the comparison to Ella as a compliment.

The Rolling In The Deep hitmaker tweeted during that evening's live show: "Ella Henderson on X Factor is absolutely incredible! I LOVE her!! Good luck xx"

Speaking to Capital FM today, Tulisa revealed that Ella was ecstatic with the comment from Adele.

"Oh my god, that was amazing," Tulisa said. "Ella's been so excited.

"Especially after Louis [Walsh's] little comment that definitely picked her up and she's just so ecstatic about it."

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 third live performance show on ITV1.
