With the upcoming series of the X Factor UK gracing our screens in less than 24 hours, we are beginning to discover what we have to look forward to. In a recently released clip, sixteen year old Samantha Lavery wows the judges with her incredible rendition of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Explosions.’
Social media is already praising the young singer, claiming that she has won the show before it’s even started.
In the clip, we hear Samantha explain how her grandfather is her inspiration as he was also a singer but gave up his dream to take care of his family. Her grandfather was there to support her on the day of her audition and it doesn’t take a genius to notice how proud he is of her. She even seems to bring X Factor host, Dermot O’Leary to tears!
You can watch the amazing clip below!
Although the comments from the judges are cut from the clip, we are sure that young Samantha Lavery is going to receive nothing but praise for her breathtaking performance. She is certainly one to look out for this year!
