X Factor 2011 hopeful Kitty Brucknell has been branded "a loose cannon" by the show's 'talent developer', Eliot Kennedy. However the Grammy award-winning music guru also said the 26-year-old was "an incredible powerhouse" and added viewers shouldn't underestimate her!
Elliot, who has previously worked with Aretha Franklin, The Spice Girls and Gary Barlow, has been brought in by show bosses to help expose the finalists' true talent.
Talking about working with Kitty, Eliot told the official website: "Kitty is a really complex individual. I don’t think I have ever come across anyone with as much unbridled ambition and passion.
"I’m excited to see where she goes from here because she is a lose cannon in all kinds of ways, but she is also an incredible powerhouse and can’t be underestimated."
But it was one of the girls that Eliot tipped to win this year, with Janet Devlin, Amelia Lily, Sophie Habibis and Misha Bryan all favourites already.
He said: "All four of them could win this competition, they are that strong. Janet has a unique quality in her voice and that beautiful accent of hers. Sophie is one of the most interesting singers I’ve heard for years, I’m such a fan of hers. Amelia is like a firecracker that’s just dying to go off, and then we have Misha, who is this powerhouse of a singer and incredible rapper."
