Jeanette Akua, South Africa's very own, has been discovered in the UK by the X Factor judges.
 
Here we see the 21-year-old beauty consultant doing her stage performance for The X Factor 2013. Jeanette is originally from South Africa and a member of the Xhosa tribe, revealing that her mother tongue is often called 'click language.'
 
After demonstrating a few words from her native dialect, the brunette beauty then silences the judges with a stunning rendition of Skinny Love by Birdy.
 
She got four yes votes and made it through to bootcamp.
 
Louis Walsh told her that she had 'star quality' while Sharon Osbourne added: “You are a vision.”
 
 
X Factor judge and former Take That frontman Gary Barlow is confident that he has discovered a modern-day Destiny’s Child and the beauty consultant, who moved to Britain from South Africa two years ago to pursue her singing dream, has been paired with three other auditionees to form a band called Stop, Look, Listen.
 
Gary is looking to replicate the success of One Direction and Little Mix – by creating his own makeshift supergroup
 
Well-liked pop groups such as One Direction and Little Mix were both formed in a similar way, and if their remarkable success is anything to go by, 21-year-old Akua’s dream might very well come true.
