Ella Henderson has a "real connection" with 'X Factor' mentor Tulisa Contostavlos.
The 16-year-old hopeful - who performed her own song in the audition stage of the show - was delighted when she found out she would be working with the N-Dubz singer because she is in awe of her.
She said: "I was so happy when I found out she was our mentor as I felt a real connection with her.
"She says she loves what I've got already and doesn't want me to change. I really admire she's got such a new sound and she's so confident."
Ella is not concerned about how fame from the show will change her because she has a strong support network of friends and family around.
She added to Look magazine: "I'm not worried about going down the wrong path because I've got such strong support. I love a good party, but I'd never go off the rails.
"I've got too much grounding,. My focus is my music, I don't want to have a bad reputation."
