Gamuchirai Nhengu stunned the X Factor judges at her audition, which will be seen in the opening episode of the show.

Nhengu moved to Scotland from Zimbabwe in 2005 and appeared at the try-outs in Glasgow.

The young singer impressed the judges with her unique version of Walking On Sunshine.

Speaking before her audition, Nhengu explained that she wanted to be remembered as "somebody that people talk about".

Following her performance, Simon Cowell praised the 18-year-old telling her she sounded like a "cool old-school jazz singer from the '20s or '30s".

He added: "To be honest with you, that is one of my worst songs ever, but you did something different with it.

"I really, really, really like you! You are very talented."

Louis Walsh described her as "soulful" and "likeable", while Cheryl Cole admitted that she was "really excited" by the performance.

Guest judge Geri Halliwell told a tearful Nhengu that her mother will be "proud" of her.
