Henderson promising 'shocking' song on 'X Factor'

Ella Henderson thinks her 'X Factor' performance this weekend will "shock" people.

The 16-year-old singer, who is mentored by Tulisa, has revealed that even though she initially found this week's 'Guilty Pleasures' theme difficult she has come up with a song choice with a "twist" that will be a surprise for a lot of people.

She told BANG Showbiz: "It is guilty pleasures week. I found the theme really hard this week but I've taken it on as a challenge - I'm really excited.

"I'm going to do a song that everyone's just going be so shocked and going to think, 'What the hell is she going to do with that?' But I'm really excited about it all."

Having made it to the final six and being the only female contestant left in the competition Ella admits although the pressure is growing as the show is coming to an end she is determined to enjoy herself and not focus on winning.

She added: "I guess there's only four weeks left of the competition - it is kind of appearing in everybody's minds now and you do want to get to the end but I'm just going to enjoy it now because, what have you got to lose?

"I've made it this far so I'm just going to enjoy it and just see where it goes and whatever happens will happen. That's how I'm looking at it."

Ella was joined by fellow 'X Factor' contestants Union J, James Arthur and Chris Maloney at the London premiere of 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part Two' on Wednesday, where she felt star struck standing on the same red carpet as main cast members Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.

She exclaimed: "I think it's crazy, I still don't think like I'm somebody or anything like that. It just feels absolutely mental!"
