X Factor UK spoilers: Monica Michael makes Cheryl Cole cry

Monica Michael x factor 1

Monica Michael reduces Cheryl Cole to tears on The X Factor 2014 tonight.

24 year old youth worker Monica from North London tells cameras how she "rebelled" as a teenager and that "music saved my life".

Monica sings an original song dedicated to her younger sister, Natalie.

She says: "She witnessed me going off the rails. I just want to let her know I'm there for her."

Speaking to cameras before her audition, Monica adds: "If I get four yeses from the judges it would definitely inspire her to achieve what she wants to achieve in her life and make my family proud that I've changed my life around and went for my dreams."

Monica's original song - Pretty Little Sister - leaves Cheryl in tears and the other judges gushing over her "passion" and "rusky" voice.

Cheryl says: "You're just real, from the core and it really touched me. My sister writes me poems and she has since I was little, so I related to that song.

"You are super talented, you're just rough around the edges and haven't had a break yet. I loved that song and would download it tomorrow."

But is Simon Cowell impressed?
