The 17-year-old burst onto the show during the auditions round when she impressed with her version of Beyonce's Sweet Dreams.
And she sailed to the judge's houses where it was revealed her mentor will be ex-N-Dubz singer Tulisa.
But chatting to Caroline Flack during a "get to know each other session" in the Xtra Factor, Jade said she's watched the movie Titanic over 100 times.
"I love it. It's amazing!" she exclaimed, and when questioned if she had seen the recently-released 3D version of the blockbuster, Jade replied: "Cried my eyes out."
The NI girl also exposed her geographical shortcomings when she answered the tricky question - what is the capital of Australia?
"Erm... Sweden," guessed Jade.
During Jade's tearful first audition she said her dad "took the wrong path in life" and has been in prison for as long as she can remember.
But the teen, who has been singing for around 10 years, made it through to the Judge's House stage with five other girls.
"I think I'm quite mature for my age," she said, "and there are three of us who are 16 and 17 so I don't feel like I'm the baby.
"We're all very laid back and we're all keeping an eye out for each other. No matter what happens, we're all going to stay in touch."
Elsewhere on the weekend's shows, Essex model Rylan - who also made the cut to the group stages - showed off his dancing, Gangnam Style.
The tune by Korean popstar PSY has gone viral and its distinctive bopping has been viewed more than 260 million times on YouTube.
Meanwhile Lucy Spraggan moved the audience to tears when she performed another of her self-penned songs, Tea and Toast.
And despite a disappointing rendition of Maroon 5's Moves Like Jagger, the 21-year-old won a standing ovation from the judges and a safe ticket to the next round of the competition.
