Kayleigh Marie Morgan wowed The X Factor 2016 judges on tonight's show with a performance of With You.

Kayleigh is a 19 year-old student and waitress from Clydach, Wales.

"When I was 15 I started to gig in the Valleys but in the past I've had confidence issues and it has effected my singing. To be here today is overwhelming," said Kayleigh ahead of her audition this evening.

"Enjoy it," encouraged host Dermot O'Leary.

The teenager credits her parents with keeping her going, including her "one in a million" hero step dad who has driven her to every gig.

"He's literally my rock," cried Kayleigh as he said how proud he is of her.

After singing With You from Ghost, Kayleigh got quite the reaction from the judges.

"Something about that song gets me every time," Simon Cowell sid.

Nicole Scherzinger added: "I'm scared of you, in the best way. You are the most graceful singer we've seen all day. You just blew me away you were born to do this."

Louis Walsh added: "It was a great song choice. You're a powerful house and you're different. I think we've found somebody special."

With Sharon Osbourne away, Kayleigh got a full set of three yeses from the judges to make it trough to bootcamp.

The X Factor 2016 auditions return Sunday night at 8PM on ITV.

And don't forget all new Xtra Factor LIVE which airs straight after on ITV2, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson.
