The 16-year-old singer captivated the judges on last night's Bootcamp with her unique rendition of Cher's 'Believe'.

Nicole Scherzinger was so moved by the teen's performance that she broke down into tears.

Talking to her fellow judges after the performance, Nicole said: "You can't judge that you just have to be honoured"

"We can't touch her, we just have to be in awe of her. I'm done."

And Gary was also full of the singers praises after admitting that she had made him like one of his top five least favourite songs of all time.

He told Ella: "I've got to say, when I read you were going to sing that song, if I was going to have a top five of the most annoying songs of all time that would come fairly close to the top for me."

"But today I would pay lots of money to hear that version of the song again. That was amazing, well done."

And it seems that it wasn't only Nicole and Gary who were impressed with her performance.

Last night saw the contestant trending on Twitter before her song had even finished.

Overwhelmed with the support, Ella took to Twitter to thank her newly acquired fans.

She tweeted: "Night everyone!! This support is just unreal!! Xxxxxx #EllaTo50K #teamgirls"

Ella is one of the final 24 contestants who have made it through to next weekend's Judges houses stage.
