An elderly lady from Wales, Jacqueline Faye, impressed the judges and even received a standing ovation from the entire studio audience during a special episode of X Factor.
The video uploaded to YouTube by the official channel X Factor UK showed the three judges – Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Robbie Williams, and his wife, Ayda Field – being stunned by the magical performance from Fye.
For her special performance, Faye chose to sing one of Cilla Black’s 1960’s hit “You”re My World.”
The 53-year-old currently resides on a farm in Oxfordshire was herself surprised when she received four ‘Yeses’ from the judges.

One of the judges, Robbie Williams, was so delighted with the performance that he admitted that Faye’s voice reminded him of his home. “You transport me to safety and kindness,” he told the singer. “There’s something really special about you.”
Faye went on to explain to the judges about her lifestyle and that she lives on a farm with her husband Bobby and a host of animals including two peacocks, Chas and Dave.
She then began her performance with the permission of the judges, revealing earlier that she was about to sing a Black song.
When she started singing, the judges and the audience were impressed from the very first minute. The judges even turned to each other in amazement as they never expected Faye to be such an expert vocalist amid all her nervousness.
Following her performance, she not only earned praises from the judges but also standing ovation from the audience, which overwhelmed her and she could not hold back her tears.
Judge Cowell told her, “When you walked out I thought you'd walked out on to the wrong show by mistake and I'm thinking this isn't going to be great and then you were. There's no other way of putting it. You're a little tiger, aren't you? And that's why we will never put an age barrier on the show.”
In a similar surprising reality talent audition, a 9-year-old boy impressed the judges in an unexpected way in one of the episodes of Britain’s Got Talent.
