'X Factor' sensation Abi Alton was once attacked by an old lady because she hated her singing
'X Factor' sensation Abi Alton was attacked by an old lady who hated her singing.
The 18-year-old wannabe has wowed the judges - Nicole Scherzinger, Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne - with her remarkable vocal talent, but she admits not everyone has taken to her music in the same positive way.
The shy supermarket assistant once played to a group of senior citizens at an old people's home in Guisborough, Cleveland, but one individual was so angry that Abi's performance prevented her from taking a nap that she threw a cup at the youngster and screeched at her to stop singing.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, she said: "This old lady threw a cup at me. I think she wanted to have a nap and didn't like the fact I was there playing the piano.
"She was like: 'Shut up and get out.' I was shocked."
However, the brunette beauty admitted she managed to win back her ex-boyfriend thanks to her emotional self-penned audition song, 'Jigsaw'.
She said previously: "The song is about breaking up with somebody, not really knowing if it's the end when that person has gone -- and how a part of you is missing. It is based on real life.
"I had been going out with my boyfriend for a year but our relationship went through a bit of a rough patch.
"When I sang the song at the arena, I hadn't got back with my boyfriend -- but now I have."
