XFactor 2014 spoilers: Andrea Faustini leaves Cheryl Cole in tears!

x factor 2014 spoilers bootcamp 17

The X Factor 2014 bootcamp continues tonight and there are some powerful performances.

It's the turn of both the Boys and the Overs and it seems that Cheryl is appreciating taking the back seat after her turn last night.

As she watches the performances, there are tears from the Geordie singer as Italian contestant Andrea Faustini belts out Whitney Houston’s I Didn’t Know My Own Strength.

A sobbing Cheryl is left sitting at the judges' desk as Mel B, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh give Andrea a standing ovation, as he too ends up crying.

“I felt every single word you said,” Cheryl says.

Simon adds: "It was a stunning vocal."

But while Andrea took the competition in his stride, other acts struggle under the pressure.

Scarlett Quinn from the Overs is competing for one of just six spots at judges' houses, having split from musical duo Kitten and the Hip back at the room auditions.

But Brighton based Scarlett's performance of Ordinary World by Duran Duran sees her forgetting the lyrics having been fretting about the song backstage beforehand.

Although the 28-year-old blamed Simon's CHEST for her fluffing the lines.

“Simon’s to blame. He put me off," she said. “It was that chest. I was wondering how many more buttons on his shirt would pop open. Forgetting those lyrics will haunt me. This was biggest opportunity of my life.”

The X Factor 2014 airs tonight at 8PM on ITV.
