While in tears she explained her fear of rejection, saying, ‘Stage fright is something I’ve battled with. I’m just trying to take each minute as it comes. If someone says no for me it’s like you’re not good enough.

‘That’s where I think most of the nervousness comes from. That people say no. I really want to succeed because I feel like I’m failing myself more than anything. I want to prove to everybody I’m something more than what they maybe thought.’

Prior to that she had been on The Voice where she performed in a blind audition before being rejected by Danny O’Donaghue, Sir Tom Jones, and Jessie J.

The startling difference between the performances has prompted accusations that she was faking her nerves. Many viewers have claimed that her apparent shyness is nothing more than a cynical ploy to win votes.
