VIDEO: POTTER WATCH: Rachel Triumphs on First Live X FACTOR Show!
THE X FACTOR, FOX
Broadway vet Rachel Potter is currently a contestant on FOX's THE X FACTOR. On last night's first live show, the singer hoped to hold on to her spot on mentor Kelly Rowland's "Over 25s" team with her version of Lee Ann Womack's moving ballad "I Hope You Dance". Watch the performance below!
Following the song, judge Paulina raved that the performance was brilliant from beginning to end, while Simon reminded the viewing audience that the last time we saw Rachel, she was horrible. (if we recall Simon, she was struggling with a horrible illness at the time yet still pulled off a fine performance!)
Former Destiny's Child member Rowlands loved what she saw and decided to put the 29-year-old from Seminole, FL into next week's live Top 12 round of competition!
