Louis Walsh has predicted X Factor wannabe Tamera Foster could be bigger than Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis, two of the show’s previous winners.

The 16-year-old singer from Gravesend, Kent, showed up to the closed auditions with her 22-year-old friend Jerrie Dila under the name Silver Rock.

However, judges Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne split them up, forcing them to go solo in front of the 4,000-strong Wembley Arena crowd.
In scenes due to air tonight, things get off to a bad start when the nervous teen flees the stage and heads for her family after forgetting the words to her version of Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing.

But after a mini pep talk from show host Dermot O’Leary she reappears and wows the crowd with her flawless vocals.

Gary told her she had ‘potential beyond belief’ and Louis reckons she has what it takes to go all the way.

Typical comment from Louis...

I do love Tamera though.

I really like Tamera and think she will be one of my favorites this season, love her voice however I hate it when judges say thing's like this at such an early point in the competition all it does it sabotage them. Saying something like this in an early stage of the competition is like a kiss of death.

I would have liked to see them add a third member, the girl from Brixton with the beanie hat would have slotted straight in.

They said all this about Ella Henderson last year. "You will be selling out arenas around the world in five years' time" etc.

Seen this so many times. Apparently Alexandra Burke was going to be bigger than Leona, so was Ella Henderson (to be fair on Ella she hasn't had time yet)

I do like Tamera, from what I've seen of her though.

If she does as well as Alex i think that she will be pretty happy. She seems to have the talent, but its early days yet, as it is with all of them.

Not being a fan of Leona's diva ballad style of singing, I can already see that Tamera has a bette voice and could be more versatile doing pop/upbeat as well as ballads (yuk)
She's better looking as well

She had a good voice judging from the audition, but it didn't blow me away. I'm looking forward to seeing tonight performance.

On the day, considering I hadn't a clue who any of them were, or whether they had ever tried out for XF before..........Hannah and Melanie, with Jade a close runner up. The audience response echoed that at the time.

When you see bootcamp, you'll know if my memory is failing me lol

If she only wants to be better than Leona Lewis she lacks ambition.
