Young Amy wows the x Factor judges (© ITV)
Amy Mottram sang a beautiful rendition of Adele's hit 'One And Only' in London before going through to the bootcamp stage of the competition.
"This is my dream; I can't believe I'm on this stage," Amy told the judges.
Tulisa said: "You sang that song like you've been on the earth a lot longer than 16 years."
Former X Factor winner Leona was also impressed. "I'm so glad that you auditioned for this show. I think you're gonna go such a long way and I'm so glad that I was here to witness it," she said.
Gary praised the confidence in her voice and her technique, while Louis told her she had soul.
Earlier 18-year-old Eddy String rocked his way to bootcamp with an energetic rendition of The Strokes' 'Last Night'.
"I think you're a really good entertainer," Louis told him. "I see a little bit of Mikka and a little bit of Russell Brand. If you could calm down it would be great."
Gary praised his energy but warned the rock hopeful: "The personality thing is on the edge of being annoying; just tone it back one bit."
Meanwhile, Britney Spears impersonator Lorna Bliss - who previously appeared on Britain's Got Talent, leapt off the stage to straddle Louis during her raunchy routine of Dancing Till The World Ends.
Her raunchy routine scared Gary, who ran for the hills.
"That's what I called a lucky escape", he joked after the music stopped. "Louis, are you okay?"
"Yeah, I wasn't expecting that; I've done this for nine years and that's the first time that's happened," the Irishman said.
