In just a matter of seconds, Simon Cowell‘s jaw dropped and he sat there in complete awe of this young karate black belt who had a surprising talent to show off!
The 20-year-old recruiter for a temp agency appeared on the latest season of The X Factor UK to show off her singing skills and see if she could catch the big break she’d been dreaming of for her whole life.

Young Georgia Burgess has been a fan of The X Factor ever since she attended it at just eight years old with her family. Since then, she’s watched many of her fellow countrymen go on to reach immense international success after appearing on the show – and is hoping that she can follow a similar path!

Beginning her audition with some of the most powerful and insane vocals we have ever heard – and Simon, too – Burgess continued to stun each and every person watching with her soulful cover of The Jackson 5’s “Who’s Lovin’ You.”
Hits from The Jackson 5 have become a staple of cover songs for various artists and even country music’s own Little Big Town gave their own magical twist to the band’s hit “I Want You Back.”
After finishing her song – which was clearly a perfect choice, the judges opened up about how deeply moved and awed they were by her unexpected performance.
“Effortless. How comfortable you are in your skin makes us feel really comfortable,” judge Robbie Williams.
As truly sweeping her performance was, it appears to have caught the eye of United States record labels and her own social media page stated she has been in talks with several labels – according to Metro.
What a whirlwind for this young performer! Did you like her performance? Tell us in the comments!
