The X Factor has been winning the weeknight ratings since its return on Monday night, proving Australia’s love for singing shows is as strong as ever. And when you check out the talent, it’s not hard to see (or hear) why. Monday night opened with 17-year-old Bella Ferraro’s standing ovation-worthy audition and since then the powerful pipes have kept on coming (with a few shockers in between). Last night, 19-year-old vocal coach Angel Tupai had the judges, Ronan Keating, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Guy Sebastian and Mel B, on their feet with her rendition of Jessie J’s “Big White Room.” Guy's reaction when she'd finished was, “Shut up!” Ronan compared her to Mariah Carey and the late Whitney Houston, adding, “We are in the presence of greatness.” Watch it below!
