The judges were dubious when she suggested she would sing a Michael Jackson song. But everybody was astonished when she started to sing…

There are some musicians whose songs you simply shouldn’t attempt to perform on a show like «The X-Factor.»

To attempt to sing like them would be to try and challenge fate due to their overwhelming talent and legendary reputation.

Another among them is Michael Jackson. The moniker «King of Pop» was not merely given to him in jest. His perfection gave the world some of the best pop songs ever, therefore, trying to compose a version of one of them is unquestionably risky.

But not for one teenage English singer.

Despite being only 17 years old, Louisa Johnson has been singing for more than ten years. Louisa attempted singing amazing songs like Dolly Parton’s «I Will Always Love You» when she was nine years old and on her own. She was nevertheless overly anxious when she took the stage to perform for one of the cruelest judges in the entire world.

But as soon as she opened her mouth to sing, everything vanished, and even Simon was astounded by what he was hearing!
