The reggae singer was a firm favourite with the 4,000 strong audience at Wembley Arena and her rendition of Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' got all four panelists dancing along.
But despite the warm reception, the judges were left wondering if Souli's singing abilities were strong enough for the show.
"Souli, you are so positive, but this is a singing competition," Sharon Osbourne told her.
Gary Barlow added: "We have had a great time but it has got to come down to the vocals and they weren't good enough."
Not to be deterred by their comments, Souli told the judges: "I am what the people love; I am what they are waiting for.
You are a great performer and we need some more reggae on X Factor.
Louis Walsh to Souli Roots
Louis Walsh and Sharon decided to give the singer another chance and said yes, but Gary stood his ground and maintained that she would not be good enough to win the X Factor.
Souli eventually made it through to the bootcamp stage, but only after the audience compelled Nicole Scherzinger to give her another chance.
Meanwhile 16-year-old schoolboy Nicholas McDonald was a huge surprise for the judges in the arena, after his room audition left Gary wondering if he was ready.
The Take That singer told Nicholas that he may have to wait a year in order to be a contender for the competition.
But after Nicholas performed a rendition of Christina Perry's 'A Thousand Years', Gary told him: "I thought your (room) audition was ok, but today you completely knocked it out of the park."
"You have a gorgeous voice, you are really special," said Nicole.
"That was a lovely audition, and it was effortless."
That was really lovely, it was very sincere.
Nicole Scherzinger to Stephanie Woods
Returning hopeful Stephanie Woods also made it through to bootcamp, despite the judges concerns that her song choices were too "dated".
The 20-year-old sang Roy Orbison's 'I Drove All Night', which was famously covered by Celine Dion, but Gary felt she had chosen the wrong song.
Stephanie then performed a rendition of 'Songbird' to the delight of the arena audience.
"I question these decisions you are making with these songs," said Gary.
"You are not going to get in the charts singing songs like that, you need to go back and modernise what you do - but you are too good a singer to let go."
The X Factor returns to UTV on Saturday and Sunday from 8pm.
