You can say yes no, thats your opinion however I have watched thousands on contestants audition for these shows, in the UK, USA, Australia and throughout Europe. However I have NEVER seen a 16 year old with the voice, control and actual potential, both image and talent wise that Tamera had.

I Cannot wait to see what she does throughout the competition, I think she has the potential to steal the show. She hasn;t even peaked anywhere close to her potential! This is only a glimmer of what she can do.

If she gets it right she is UNBEATABLE! She won't peak though until middle of live shows

If she improves her singing standard (more vocal lessons and controlling her voice), remembers the words and doesn't et chucked ot over a drugs scandal then yes she has fantastic potential. I can see her being in the charts, she has the looks but has she the substance to back it up?

Time will tell.

I don't think shes ready. She should have been told to try again in a year or two. Shes got the potential to be the best but she isn't there yet. She wasn't in time with the backing, she kept forgetting her words and she went off key and sounded nasally at points too.

Dunno about that. I was listening to her on headphones and she was missing quite a few of the notes.

I can think of a 13 year old on the X Factor US who beats her on everything except range personally...

I don't know. I loved her Saturday and she'll probably grow on me again at bootcamp, but she really was a mess today.

With contestants in early 20's I would pick that out but this girl is 16! The X Factor team will help her really improve in those areas!

Why are people talking about vocals? This is the X Factor not The Voice UK, everyone should know by now you need more than just impressive vocals to survive in today's music industry. Unless you're Adele or Emelie Sande...

I agree with this. Her potential is unimaginable, but I think she's a long way off being where she needs to be. I think she's an obvious star, but I think she needs a year or two first..

I can name 4 contestants from the recent series of The Voice who had better auditions than her. She was quite good but not as amazing as the judges and editing made her out to be.

Yes, I thought she had a powerful voice, but really has trouble controlling it.

Louis was having a laugh when he said she had more potential than Leona though.

I actually agre with OP even thinking he's kind of exaggerating on purpose because she has a vocie with huge potential (sure she nees training though) and range; she has the looks (she's really hot) and she had stage presence singing whitney. Also, Im getting bothered by the jokes with the drug "scandal".. it shouldnt matter if she smokes marijuana or if she doesn't, and I dont think anyone has the right to judge her cause it doesnt interfere in anything tbh..

True. The X Factor has a long history of putting people through to lives off the back of thier looks or image rather than solely on their singing ability.

Tamera has the potential to go far but she could have hampered her chances with the revelations in the papers with the drugs. The X Factor frowns upon that sort of thing,

The point is exactly that shes just 16, she has her entire future ahead of her. Time isn't against her like it would be if she was in her early to mid twenties. They rejected Alexandra Burke at 16 years old, she came back after 3 years and is regarded as one of the best ever contestants/winners.

She isn't ready and should've been given a no. The live shows begin in 5 weeks time, she might not be able to cope not only with the pressure of that but the whole media circus that comes with it.

Best contestant, globally?

She hasn't won yet...

It wasn't that great an audition anyway. Far too "copycat" for me.

This. It is already going wrong for Tamera with the drugs revelations, she seems to be so naive to think that the tabloids wouldn't rummage around her Twitter, Instagram or Facebook etc.

That's a problem contestants have now that wasn't a factor a few years ago.

In my opinion, she isn't a patch on Leona, no matter what her age.

Her voice was all over the place and she continually forgot the lyrics to one of the most well-known songs of all time. Very shouty too and flat in places.

I'm not saying she's got a bad voice, but it's nowhere near as good as some people are making out. Certainly not in Leona's league.

Yes she has potential but the forgetting words was not good. At one time that would have been a big no no. There has been some stuff about her in the media which if true would explain why she was not on her game so she needs to get herself together and decide if she is taking this seriously.
