Simon didn’t seem to like the nervous singer, but her audition for Whitney Houston stunned him

The X Factor judges give her some words of encouragement after her audition.

Simon Cowell questions Lucy Jones’ ability to sing Whitney Houston’s ”I’ll Always Love You” during her audition for The X Factor. But boy, he was wrong!

Lucy Jones, 18, is from a small village in Wales of just a few hundred people.

“I really want to get out and I really want to get on the big stage”, Lucy says of her hometown.

“For someone like Lucy who’s aiming for the bright light, this could be a way to step back and pursue her dream”, Lucy’s mother says in an interview before Lucy Jones’ X Factor audition.

Lucy Jones shines on The X Factor

When Lucy starts singing “I Will Always Love You”, she gets a little nervous on stage. But then she gains confidence and her voice gets stronger. Simon even starts to smile when he sees her blossom on stage.

The X Factor judges give Lucy Jones some words of encouragement after her audition.

“I really liked your vulnerability in your performance because it makes me think you don’t understand how amazing you are”, Judge Cheryl says. “I think you’re one of the people to look out for, Lucy”, she continues. I believe you have great potential. “I believe you have the ability to sing anything”.

“Some people were born to sing”, says X Factor judge Louis Lucy Jones. You were made to sing. You tick all the boxes and I predict that everything will change for you from today.

“Lucy, that’s why we came to Wales,” Simon says with a big smile. “One of the hardest songs in the world to perform. You weren’t trying to sound like Whitney Houston; you sang your way. Lucy, you are very pretty. You are extremely talented. I really like you”, he says.

This talented young lady can’t believe how much praise she’s getting! Lucy Jones flees the stage after all the X Factor judges agreed to hug their parents celebrating her success.
