Despite the amazing audition, Ella got no turns to the shock of viewers.

“That was definitely a 4 chair turn amazing voice can’t believe no one turned,” one reacted on Twitter.

Another added: “She was unbelievable! I am astounded that she didn’t get a 4 chair turn, let alone none!”

Sir Tom said: “I was almost there but I’ve got too many people already.” agreed: “If we all were at three [in our teams], we’d all have turned and be fighting over her.”

Tom added: “That’s a mistake, she should’ve been here.”

Speaking after her audition, Ella said: “It meant a lot. I’ve been thinking about this a long time… it is what it is, isn’t it?

“I think my performance went well, even though they didn’t turn I know I did my best.”
