Lascel and mum wow X Factor judges

Viewers will see X Factor contender Lascel Wood impress the judges on tonight's show with an "emotional performance" in front of his mother.

The 20-year-old from Brighton was fostered when he was four because his mother suffered from bipolar disorder, but she was at his audition to see him sing properly for the first time - and his performance of Use Somebody by Kings Of Leon wowed the panel.

Tulisa Contostavlos said it was "an absolutely outstanding performance", while Gary Barlow told him it was "stunning".

Kelly Rowland said: "I'm very emotional ... first of all, I don't know you but I'm very proud of you, to come here today and just really do such a wonderful job in this audition and the relationship you have with your mother is just so beautiful."

But not everyone impresses and Take That star Gary does not mince his words, telling one act they have "no talent at all" and telling a four piece girl group they are "like a solo singer with three very mediocre backing singers".

The judges are in London and Manchester in tonight's episode of the talent search.
