X Factor 2017: Grace Davies makes judges cry with a original song Don't Go

Grace Davies left The X Factor 2017 judges in tears (again) this evening.

Saturday night saw the third and final of three bumper bootcamp shows as the arena auditions continued.

Each of the remaining contestants in the competition picked their own song before facing the judges and a 5,000 strong live audience at Wembley Arena.

The panel then made an immediate decision whether or not they go through to the six chair challenge.

One of the acts who we saw singing for the judges this time is the current favourite to win, Grace Davies.

20-year-old Grace previously closed the opening round of room auditions last month with an original song roots that left Nicole Scherzinger in tears.

And the youngster did it all over again at bootcamp as she sang original song Don’t Go, about getting her heart broken, getting both Sharon Osbourne and Nicole in tears (and Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh look a little misty-eyed, too!).

Speaking at the launch of this year’s X Factor, Nicole said of Grace: “There’s a girl called Grace who is very unassuming. She comes out a little bubbly, flighty and you don’t really know what to expect. Then when she sings her original songs Pandora’s Box opens up to her soul and it’s clear.

“You see straight into her, you connect with that and you immediately associate the song to your own life and things going on, things you’ve experienced. That’s what music is about, she has a true gift for song writing.

“She’s very stripped back and honest when she performs her songs. She makes me cry like a baby every time that she performs.”

Meanwhile, another act who impressed the judges this weekend with an original song was boy band Rak-Su. They reveal a song called Knock Knock, which the boys explain is “about the girl next door, that when you finally meet her, the emotional you go through.”

The X Factor 2017 continues on Sunday with the Six Chair Challenge starting from 7:30PM.

The contestants who made it through bootcamp will return to Wembley Arena to perform once again, this time split into their separate categories and with one of the judges assigned as their mentor.

All the acts in each category will perform one at a time for all the judges and live audience, but only the mentor in charge of that category will decide which contestant gets a seat.
