Gravesend’s Tamera Foster is through the latest round of the X Factor - but received mixed reviews from the judges for her rendition of Beyonce’s Listen.
Take That’s Gary Barlow suggested she was trying to be Beyonce, adding: “This show is called the X Factor, there were elements of that performance which reminded me of Stars In Their Eyes.”
The 16-year-old North West Kent College student received generally favourable reviews from the other judges for Saturday’s performance.
Louis Walsh said: “Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better. You stole the show.”
Sharon Osbourne added: “If I had to put together the ideal popstar it would be you, you have everything going for you. I just need more soul.”
Afterwards Tamera, who went to Northfleet School for Girls, said she was happy with her performance of the Dreamgirls track in the Movie Week-themed show - and expected the Beyonce comparisons.
She is still the favourite to win the competition despite Barlow’s comments.
Girl group Miss Dynamix was voted out following last night’s sing-off.
Check out Tamera’s performance on Saturday.
