The Voice UK star Sheena McHugh was rejected by The X Factor, we can reveal.

On The Voice 2015 tonight we saw Sheena wow the coaches with her cover of Drake's Hold On, We're Going Home, scoring four turns from all of the coaches.

Will.i.am compared the 26-year-old to Wonder Woman and told her: "So far to be honest with you, you have been the best singer we've seen today.

"I'll be honoured to have you on my team but if you don't choose me I'm happy to have you on the show."

Sir Tom agreed: "You're the best singer today, you've a wonderful voice and it just got stronger and stronger. Your voice is a powerful instrument."

Rita Ora added: "I know you'll be an amazing, amazing contestant on this show."

Sheena ended up choosing Team Will but this wasn't her first shot in a music competition having taken part in The X Factor in 2013.

There Sheena was in the Girls category, mentored by Nicole Scherzinger.

She made it through to bootcamp where she was first given a no by Nicole after an acoustic performance of Katy Perry's The One That Got Away.

The audience then persuaded the Pussycat Doll singer to change her mind and Sheena was give a spot in the next round, only to be later ditched AGAIN and fail to make it through to judges' houses.

Now Sheena is Team Will and into the battle stages of The Voice UK 2015.
