Watch: X Factor hopeful Rwanda Shaw shows off her vocal talents ahead of Bootcamp

Northern Ireland singer Rwanda Shaw says her experience of Bootcamp was "so relaxing" compared to her first X Factor audition.

The Lisburn hopeful will be fighting for her chance to go through to the next stage of the ITV competition this weekend after she impressed the judging panel with her singing talents.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, Rwanda has been revealing what she thought of Bootcamp.

"It was definitely far less nerve wracking than my first audition because everyone was in the same boat," she said.

"In the first audition everyone was kind of keeping themselves to themselves and just wanting to get the day over - but at Bootcamp everyone was making friends so it was so relaxing.

"I loved it."

The 21-year-old Poundland worker wowed Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh when she performed a rendition of Florence + the Machine's You've Got The Love during her first audition in Liverpool.

"You have an awesome voice and a lot of potential," Nicole told her.

Asked who her favourite judge was, Rwanda admitted it was Simon, but Nicole had been so nice to her throughout she could easily change her mind.

Watch Rwanda show off her vocal talents in the above video.

The X Factor airs on ITV this Saturday and Sunday from 8pm.
