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?

Age panic aside, Olivia divided opinion on Twitter.

Some fans insisted she was “a future star”.

Olivia wow 🙌🙌 #xfactor

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

Olivia shouted the whole way through that song… My ears. 🙉🙉 #Xfactor

I feel like Olivia would be much better at 85%. That was all a bit too shouty shouty. #XFactor

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.
