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 Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
