Anastacia was moved to tears by an 'X Factor' contestant yesterday (11.06.12).

The 'I'm Outta Love' singer joined judges Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos on the panel in Glasgow and couldn't keep her emotions in check when one hopeful dedicated his song to his cancer-stricken grandmother.

The singer - who has previously battled breast cancer herself - told him: "You made this whole audition very special."

Anastacia then went up on stage to meet the hopeful's grandmother and offer words of support.

Meanwhile, the 43-year-old star confessed to having a crush on Gary.

She told the crowd: "I'm not sure I'll be able to concentrate on the talent because of Gary Barlow - he's so hot!"

The US singer also flirted with a kilt-wearing contestant, asking him: "So, what you got on under there?"

When the auditionee replied "Why don't you come up here and find out?", she climbed up on stage and peeked under his kilt.

She then returned to her seat and announced: "He had nothing on under there! I love Scotland!"


The big-voiced, chart-topping American singer performs her pop, R&B and soul hits after her stint on Strictly Come Dancing.
