X Factor 2017: Holly Tandy NAILS her judges' houses performance

Holly Tandy,

Holly Tandy could be set for X Factor's live shows after nailing her performance at judges' houses.

The 16-year-old pub singer from Barnsley is one of the youngest contestants in this year's competition.

Tonight we'll see Holly competing for one of three spots in the live shows alongside Alisah Bonaobra, Deanna Mussington, Rai-Elle Williams, Georgina Panton and Grace Davies.

The girls fly off to San Francisco to meet mentor Sharon Osbourne, who makes it a family affair with son Jack and daughter Kelly helping her out.

The acts have just one more chance to impress Sharon, Jack and Kelly, with each contestant hoping to convince them that they have the star quality required to reach the live shows.

Holly says tonight: "My life starts here in my eyes. It's just one performance that stands before me and the live shows. It's make or break, I've just got to give it my best go an see what happens."

Holly opts to sing Rihanna's Russian Roulette and nails the vocals - but is it enough to make the live shows?

Speaking ahead of judges' houses weekend, Holly said of potentially making the live shows: "It’ll be that self-belief; it’s a platform for me to grow as an artist, to find out who I really am and what I am capable of.

"Hopefully I can make a career out of this and people will enjoy listening to me.

"I want to inspire people, especially young girls who may have a dream but don’t know if they can make it come true."

And she of her hopes for five years from now: "I see myself selling out arenas, making music and working with other artists.

"I’d love to write my own songs, I’m passionate about music and want to make it my career."

The X Factor 2017 judges' houses airs Saturday at 8:20PM and Sunday at 7PM on ITV.
