X Factor's Caitlyn Vanbeck forgets her lyrics in emotional judges' houses performance

CAITLYN VANBECK

Caitlyn Vanbeck forgets her lyrics on The X Factor 2016 tonight at judges' houses.

The fan favourite from Scotland has so far held her own but the pressure seems to get to the teenager tonight.

Before singing for Simon Cowell and his guest judges Mel B and Emma Bunton, Caitlyn tells cameras: "Never did I think I'd be sitting in Malibu in Simon Cowel's house.

"Now I'm here I'm a little bit 'What's going on?!'"

The teaching student continues: "My dream is to be a singer and that is why I'm here today. I've just tried to constantly impress the judges and constantly impress Simon.

"When I found out Simon was my mentor I was really, really happy because I knew he already understood me."

Caitlyn adds: "One song stands between me and the live shows and I'm really scared because if I muck up then I'm going back home."

Singing George Michael's Praying For Time, Caitlyn unfortunately trips up over some of the words.

Simon Cowell however encourages her: "The last 15 seconds, that part of your voice is the sweet spot."

A teary Caitlyn is reassured by Emma: "Don't worry about the words, you were so in it."

An emotional Caitlyn replies: "I just, really don't want to go home. I've wanted this so much and it means so much to me."

Will Simon pick Caitlyn as one of his final three?
