X Factor 2011: Judges praise "fantastic" Jade Richards after bootcamp performance

Jade Richards X Factor 2011

21-year-old X Factor 2011 hopeful Jade Richards wowed the judges on tonight's boot camp, following a string of disappointed performances. The Scottish singer was performing alongside The Keys, Nicole Simpson and Joe Cox at Wembley Arena this evening.

Speaking beforehand backstage, Jade said: "It's an amazing experience to be here, I'd like to be able to do well for my family, this is my one opportunity so I really hope it goes well."

The Keys agreed: "This competition means so much to us, it means everything to us."

And it went more than well, with Jade's group becoming one of only a handful to all successfully get past the judges.

"Jade is fantastic," said an impressed Gary Barlow after the performance.

"It looks like she doesn't even know what she's capable of," Tulisa added.

It meant Jade and The Keys, along with [tag]Joe Cox[/tag] and Nicole Simpson, all made it to the second day of bootcamp.
