Gamu Nhengu leaves Simon Cowell unimpressed with ‘80s hit song choice – until she starts singing. The 18-year-old X Factor UK hopeful has a clear goal to be remembered and make a difference.
With a tweak to the classic ‘Walking on Sunshine’ by Katrina and the Waves, Nhengu leaves the judges and audience in awe. While Simon initially appears unimpressed, the others can’t help but smile at Nhengu’s sass and liveliness.
Her alteration changes the song from a love song to a breakup song, and she nails it with her confident body language and caustic delivery. With Louis Walsh praising her soulful voice and overall performance, it’s clear that Nhengu has something special.
