Young X Factor wannabe has fans REALLY feeling their age

Teenager hopeful Olivia Garcia triggered a bit of a panic on Twitter when she opened her X Factor audition by announcing that she had watched Leona Lewis win… when she was six.

And now she’s 16.

What? Did Leona win X Factor a decade ago?

Ouch!

Age panic aside, Olivia divided opinion on Twitter.

Some fans insisted she was “a future star”.

But others dismissed her as being a “bit shouty”.

Can’t make your mind up? Don’t fret. She got through to boot camp so we will get another chance to judge Olivia’s vocals.
