Sada Vidoo was branded "fantastically nuts" on The X Factor tonight but the truth is she's a highly regarded musician.

"Living doll" Sada ended up winning over Simon Cowell in this weeknd's auditions after he had reservations about her act.

Sada had the attention of the panel from the moment she walked into the room with her 'quirky' sense of style, although Sharon Osbourne thought she looked like a toilet roll cover.

After introducing herself as a living doll, Sada got Simon Cowell reacting: "You're not a doll... This is ridiculous, you are not a doll."

Sada went on to perform a rather unique rendition of Love Is A Battlefield by Pat Benatar and it turned out she actually had a pretty good voice.

"You are fantastically nuts," Simon said. "I am certainly going to remember this. I'm not sure if it's one of the best things I've seen or worst things I've seen, and that's a good thing."

With four yesses, Sada is through to bootcamp and has very quickly become a favourite with viewers.

Born and raised in Denmark, Sada and her act moved to the UK in 2012 to work on her debut album which was released in 2014 and featured singles including Love Is A Battlefield, as performed on The X Factor.

The song doesn't appear to have charted here in the UK but was released with an impressive and professional music video (below).

As well as her singing, Sada is also a songwriter and previously penned a platinum selling hit which topped the charts in five countries, according to an online biography.

And while Sada insisted as a doll she has no age, the website profile suggests she celebrated her 27th birthday in the summer putting her into the Overs category for the competition.

But will she make the live shows?

The X Factor 2016 auditions continue next Saturday and Sunday night 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.
