Viewers feeling all the feels after emotional X Factor performance


X Factor wannabes Rebekah, James and Samantha left everyone a bit tearful with their moving rendition of I Only Want To Be With You.

We had all been on the edge of our seats when James, who earlier revealed that his dyslexia made learning song lyrics difficult, fled to his hotel in a fit of nerves.

Rebekah and Samantha took being abandoned rather well and quickly worked out how to cover James's part of the track.

But then, at the very last minute, he whizzed back in a cab and took the stage with them.

After telling Simon Cowell and co what had happened, the three hopefuls unleashed their powerful (if slightly cheesy) rendition of the song, complete with supportive hugs, smiles and nods at each other throughout.

The judges ate it up, and many viewers on Twitter felt the same.

However, not everyone felt the same way.

Many fans thought the performance was a bit overdone.

And a few thought it all seemed a bit fake.
