X Factor finalist Holly Tandy from Barnsley has sung her way through to week three of the contest's live shows.

The 16 year old received enough votes to remain in the competition after her performance of Despacito by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber earlier this evening.

Watch her performance again:

Her own mentor Sharon Osborne said "You went for it, you owned it and I loved you." Fellow judge Nicole Scherzinger said she could see how hard Holly had worked. Simon Cowell told Holly, "You were one of the best tonight." explaining that while he thought she was good last weekend, this weekend she was great. And Louis Walsh said she had embraced the whole thing, singing in Spanish: "Full marks to you."

Holly didn't receive enough votes to be crowned the winner of the Sunday show - that honour went to Kevin Davy White from the overs category who was also crowned the winner of the weekend. The act with the fewest votes who left the competition was Traceyleanne Jefford from the overs category.
