The beautiful 19 year old Melanie McCabe from Whitehall Dublin is a fighter. After three previous failed attempts on the XFactor she blew the judges away with her rendition of Rihanna's Diamonds on Saturday night.
Louis Walsh was reduced to tears following Melanie's audition. He knows her from Dublin and what she's going through right now.
Melanie's family are losing their home and she said she wants to do well on the show for them saying, Â“I think it's the only thing I've ever been good at. I feel like the person I'm supposed to be when I sing. I can't even put it in into words how much today means for me, it could significantly change my life and my family's life. Â“My family have been so supportive of me over the years. We don't really have a lot of money, like as I'm sure most families don't, but we're losing our house at the moment and I'm kind of at this point in my life when I feel like everything is falling down around me and I just want something good to happenÂ”.
