It takes a special talent to affect Simon, and apart from Olivia, another contestant had him emotional as well.

The remaining contestants realize they might be in danger of losing a seat after listening to her amazing performance.

Simon makes the tough call to replace Luena Martinez’s with Olivia Garcia and with the auditions complete, the final six could rest assured they made it through to the next round.

The final six are Gifty Louise, Emily Middlemas, Kayleigh Marie Morgan, Soheila Clifford, and Faye Horn.


Olivia joined previous The X-Factor hopefuls to compete to represent their country in the Eurovision contest in 2017.

She wanted the chance to perform for her country and fought it out amongst five other contestants.

Her song for Eurovision was "Freedom Hearts," written by Gabriel Alares, Sebastian Lestapier, Linnea Nelson and Laurell Barker. She was not chosen to represent the United Kingdom in the end.
