X Factor 2017: 'Odd' mum and daughter duo confuse the judges

Descendance

The X Factor judges wanted to split up "odd" mum and daughter duo Descendance on the show tonight.

Hayley (20) and Debye (40) are a mother and daughter singing pair from Belfast, Northern Ireland, originally from Canada.

After being mistaken for sisters, the pair revealed to the judges that they're in fact a mother and daughter duo.

"Everywhere we go people either think we're sisters or best friends," they told cameras, "We always go to one another for anything.

"It's literally a bond that no one could ever break."

The pair began singing with one another three years ago and reckon they make a strong duo who "click".

"Well, where do I begin?" asked Sharon Osbourne after the performance before delivering a killer blow that she felt mum Debye should take a back seat.

"You need to be there, but in a different aspect," she explained, "What you're doing now is odd."

But Debye hit back: "We don't think it's odd though. Honestly."

Simon Cowell told the pair: "I've got to be honest, this is not great... but it's quite rare we see someone like you [Hayley]."

Hayley then replied: "I wouldn't do it with anyone else."

Despite the judges' doubts, the pair made it through as a duo to bootcamp.

Elsewhere in tonight's X Factor auditions, 16-year-old Chloe Rose Moyle impressed the judges with her very own song.

The X Factor airs Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
