Georgina made quite the entrance into the judges' room as auditions for the new series took place earlier this year.

"I think I am well, I am the winner of The X Factor 2017," she confidently declared.

Georgina told cameras that she's a full time mum to her 4 year old son who she had when she was 16.

"I'm singing for him," Georgina explained. "He's in my head at all times. I'm going to put my game face on and this is it for me and my son."

After getting the panel smiling with her upbeat personality, it wasthen Georgina's time to sing.

She performed Rihanna's Love On The Brain for the judges which gets a mixed reaction.

Simon Cowell said: "I have to say something, you are a little bit all over the place. There were a lot of notes that were all over the place... but I really like you."

"To sing Rihanna you have to be a confident, sexy woman and own it and you had that," Alesha Dixon added.

Sharon Osbourne compared Georgina to an "untrained racehorse" describing the mum-of-one as "fearless".

Despite some reservations from the judges, Georgina got her four yeses through to the next round.

So her aim of becoming the winner of The X Factor is still in play...
