A new Susan Boyle has been discovered on 'The X Factor' after Mary Byrne - who struggles with her self-confidence - wowed audiences with her rendition of Shirley Bassey's 'I Who Have Nothing'
A new Susan Boyle has been discovered on 'The X Factor'.
Shy supermarket worker Mary Byrne reduced judge Cheryl Cole to tears as she belted out the Shirley Bassey classic 'I Who Have Nothing' in an upcoming episode of the hit ITV1 show, which will be aired tomorrow (28.08.10).
Her audition in Dublin shows the 49-year-old singer struggling to muster the confidence to showcase her talents - just like the former 'Britain's Got Talent' runner-up - but eventually blowing Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, Louis Walsh and guest judge Katy Perry away with her rendition of the track.
Simon told her: "I think. no, I know, you have an amazing voice. I don't know why you suffer from no confidence.
"I absolutely love her, she's genuinely a lovely woman with a great talent and I hope the audience loves her too. She deserves this break."
Mary is not the only surprise in tomorrow's show.
Student Lisa Parker, 17, has spoken out about her stand-out audition, which will see her best friend and singing partner Abbey Johnston lash out and hit her across the face after Simon said they gave "the worst audition in history".
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "All of a sudden I felt something across my head. I just remember being hit and then having a headache. I think Abbey only hit me once but then a security guard grabbed her and another one pushed me against the wall so I couldn't get to her.
"If Simon hadn't been so nasty this probably wouldn't have happened."
