Tracey Lavery is back from London after watching her daughter Sam cruise through to week four on The X Factor. She told ITV News Tyne Tees that a standing ovation from Simon Cowell is a dream come true for the 17-year-old singer from County Durham.
"I was immensely proud watching my little girl perform one of Michael Jackson's biggest songs live on stage in London. I had goosebumps. The atmosphere is electric when it's live. I left Sam last night feeling elated. She loved doing that performance and to get Simon Cowell on his feet for her was her biggest dream come true. She said the support from home is so inspirational, she wants to do this so much, and thanks everyone from the bottom of her heart."
Sam made it through to next week but had to say goodbye to fellow contestant and friend Relley C.
