R-Pattz' big sis a hit on 'X-Factor'

Robert Pattinson's sister has wowed the judges on 'The X Factor'.

Singer Lizzy Pattinson has already made it through the first round of auditions, which take place behind closed doors, and is expected to perform for Simon Cowell and co. once again this weekend at London's Wembley Arena.

A source said of her audition: "She blew them away with her husky, soulful vocals. She's different to usual 'X Factor' contestants - she really stands out. She could go all the way."

The 31-year-old singer has provided backing vocals on songs for various 'Twilight' soundtracks and even had a top 20 hit in the UK in 2003 with club song 'Let the Sunshine In'.

But Lizzy is said to be wary of being associated with her world famous sibling, Rob, 28, and is eager to succeed on her own merit on 'The X Factor'.

An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She didn't mention she was related to him to any judges or producers. It's important to her she does not fall into the trap of just becoming 'Rob's sister'."

It's thought Lizzy is a "shoo-in" to progress on the show after her first audition proved a hit with Simon, Cheryl Cole, Louis Walsh and Mel B.
