Guisborough singing sensation Abi Alton through to next round of X-Factor
TEESSIDE'S teenage singing sensation Abi Alton has made it through to the next stage of the X-Factor after wowing the judges with her interpretation of Whitney Houston's 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody'.
Abi, 18, and from Guisborough was up against it as judge Nicole Scherzinger had already filled her allotted six places for the judges' houses round of the ITV show.
However, her slowed down version of the dance floor hit led to a standing ovation from the audience and left Nicole with an easy decision to include her at the expense of one of her earlier choices.
Fellow judge Louis Walsh said Abi, a checkout girl at Morrisons, offered something different to her fellow competitors and while Scherzinger said it would not have been her choice of song, she took little time in sending her through.
Speaking afterwards, Abi said: "I'm so happy, it's the best feeling in the world."
Tomight, she tweeted: "Wow guys, thankyou so much, bootcamp was tough so im glad you thought I pulled it out the bag! #ANGELS #love"
