Jazzy blues singer Chloe-Jasmine Whichello has been tipped to win The X Factor 2014 by Simon Cowell.
But some fans of the show who were at the filming of bootcamp at the weekend have branded her a 'novelty' act.
According to The Sun newspaper, X Factor boss Simon "thinks she can go all the way.”
Even if it's Cheryl who's in charge of the girls category this year, with Simon stuck with the overs.
"Simon was totally smitten by Chloe-Jasmine from the start. She’s a gorgeous girl," said a supposed source. “He loved her voice and tone. She has a very blues, jazzy kind of style which really made her stand out.
“Simon was grinning like a Cheshire cat all the way through her performances and made it clear afterwards that he thinks she has potential."
However the source added: “You never know what she’ll do next. She got laughs by looking like someone’s tipsy aunt, stumbling around the stage.
The 24-year-old previously auditioned for The X Factor SEVEN years ago and recently made it through to the final of Sky's modelling competition The Face.
The X Factor will start later this month on ITV.
