A lot of people would love to win it big and become the next superstar. Unfortunately, not everyone has the talent. Even those who have the talent will go up against huge odds before they can reach their dreams. For some of them, being given the opportunity to try is enough.
For one contestant, though, her unassuming disposition and appearance belie the power of her voice. When she went on stage, no one could have known the kind of voice she possessed. Her performance blew everyone away and amazed the judges.
When Georgia Burgess stepped on stage for the X Factor UK auditions, she looked like your ordinary millennial. The judges had mild looks on their faces, but they weren't expecting anything grand. After all, Georgia was just dressed in a black top and a striped pair of pants.
Georgia herself looked a bit nervous and unsure. She only smiled when a few people from the audience cheered and howled. When the music started, she bopped her head and moved her arm and the stadium grew silent.
But then she belted out the first note of The Jackson 5's "Who's Loving You", and infamous judge Simon Cowell couldn't believe his eyes -- and ears! His head snapped up, and he sat staring at her, blinking owlishly. Another judge hung his jaw as he watched Georgia pacing on the stage, belting out high notes as if it was nothing.
The crowd went wild. They cheered and took out their phones to snap pictures and take videos of her. Some people in the audience couldn't even believe how good Georgia was. There were stunned looks on their faces. Towards the end of her performance the judges gave her all smiles.
When she finished singing, this time, it was her jaw that dropped. All four judges of the competition gave her a standing ovation. She covered her mouth in shock, and she was teary-eyed when she looked at the audience. Her hands were even trembling as she took in the supportive crowd.
The twenty-year-old never imagined she would receive such a reaction from the audience and the judges. But Georgia isn't a stranger to performing on stage. According to The Sun, she has performed at several music fests and has even shared the stage with artists like Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, and Little Mix, among others.
What a lot of people don't know about her is that she has represented the United Kingdom before...in karate competitions. Not only does she have a powerful voice, she also has a black belt in martial arts!
It's a performance that's giving people goosebumps.
