X Factor: Ella Henderson's Believe made Cher cry!
All the latest news and gossip from The X Factor...
@Cher tweeted: Work Done... Went on Youtube to see a young girl sing Believe! Tears came 2 my eyes! So Touching! A Great version of a Great Song. WE Can Share It!
What a compliment for young Ella, but how is she feeling about all this? It has to be overwhelming for a 16 year old.
Can you believe Cher watched you online?
I’m still pinching myself! To have the ACTUAL Cher tweet that she’d seen my performance was mind-blowing. I’ve been smiling all day. It is quite frankly UNBELIEVABLE! I can’t believe she cried.
Nicole cried too…
I had no idea I made her cry. I was lost in my performance and totally unaware of my surroundings. I feel honoured that my performance touched her so much. I hope people are crying tears of happiness!
Do you have a fave Judge?
I love Tulisa! We made such a connection after my Audition when she came backstage to hug me.
You’re an excellent writer. Any tips?
Do whatever comes naturally. I find that I write my best songs when I’m angry or sad – when you’re feeling those raw emotions.
You’re gorgeous looking too…
Awww, thank you! Though, I don’t see myself like that. I’m like any 16-year-old girl. I have days where I don’t like looking in the mirror. I’m very into 1950s glamour. I’m all about winged eyeliner and beehives.
Did you enjoy the bootcamp shows?
I loved Rylan. That whole diva hoedown was hilarious. He was so much fun to be around at bootcamp. He’s a great guy. He hasn’t tried to spritz me with fake tan yet. That boy does love his beauty treatments. Amy’s got a beautiful, soulful voice too.
Any other performances you enjoyed?
Lucy Spraggan’s Tea and Toast was another highlight for me. I was privileged enough to have her perform it for me personally in our hotel room during bootcamp. I burst into tears afterwards. It’s so beautifully written and very sad.
Do you know what the song is about?
Yes. When Lucy was busking she saw an old, loved-up couple walk by and the woman literally dropped dead in front of her. Lucy was naturally very traumatised by what she saw and went home to write a song in their honour based on how she imagined their relationship to be.
Anything you’d like to say to your fans?
I just want to say a big thank you. All the online supporters have really boosted my confidence and have inspired me to be the best musician I can be.
Are you an Ella fan or is it a case of too much hype? Could she end up another Subo and fall at the final hurdle?
