A teenage X Factor star from Gravesend has been tipped to be a superstar by judge Louis Walsh, despite making a stuttering start in the televised audition.
Tamera Foster, who attends Northfleet School for Girls, performed Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing at Wembley Arena.
After initially forgetting the lyrics as she displayed understandable nerves in front of 4,000 people, Tamera turned things around leaving Walsh suggesting she has more potential than former winners Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis.
After her performance all the judges - Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, Gary Barlow of Take That, Sharon Osbourne and Walsh - were effusive in their praise of the 16-year-old on the show televised on Saturday night (August 31).
She originally auditioned with Jerrie Bafundila as duo Silver Rock but the judges split them up, claiming they had no chemistry.
