Sophie Habibis

X Factor hopeful Sophie Habibis impressed the judges on tonight's first live show, with Gary Barlow warning Kelly Rowland not to ditch her in tomorrow's results show! 19-year-old Sophie wowed with a dreamy performance of Katy Perry's Teenage Dream.

The slowed down arrangement of the track had the panel in a trance.

Louis started off the comments, saying: "What happened?! You turned into a popstar overnight; you've got an amazing voice... an amazing recording voice. You are going to go far, Miss!

Tulisa added: "Can I just tell you how absolutely beautiful you look tonight? I love how you made that song your own. The vocals were amazing, the energy was amazing."

Gary raved: "Sophie, really, really, brilliant. Congrats on an amazing performance... where did you come from? I don't remember your original audition, or at boot camp... Kelly, I'm going to fall out with you if she's not here next week!"

Mentor Kelly Rowland joked: "Katy who!?"

What did you make of Sophie's performance?
