X Factor's Tamera in lyrics blunder

Teenager Tamera Foster is lost for words on the X-Factor when she forgets the lyrics to her song.

The 16-year-old singer from Gravesend, Kent, made her first appearance on Saturday night's show as part of a duo, called Silver Rock, with 22-year-old Jerrie Dila but the judges decided to split them up and make them both perform solo in front of thousands of fans at Wembley Arena.

The teenager, who admitted she was "so, so, so nervous", dashed off stage to her family after forgetting the words to her version of Whitney Houston's I Have Nothing and needed a reminder from show host Dermot O'Leary before going back on and wowing the crowd.

Judge Gary Barlow told her she had "potential beyond belief", while Louis Walsh said she could be better than Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke - two of the show's previous stars.

Your employer will entrust you with some important tasks. Don't let them down. By doing a good job, you'll pave the way for a pay increase. You can put the extra money towards a home or car. Having financial security will allow you to develop your creative talents. It's important for you to exercise your imagination at every opportunity. Letting it lay dormant is like refusing to harvest a thriving crop. Stop wasting the valuable gifts you've been given.More
