A supremely talented 14 year-old blew away X Factor Australia judges recently with her beautiful rendition of Gabrielle Alpin’s poetic song, ‘Please Don’t Say You Me’. Her cover was so brilliant, it’s had people asking if it could well be the best audition any X Factor across the world has ever seen. The judges, including former Boyzone singer Ronan Keating certainly seemed to think so. The Irishman even jumped up on the desk and started whooping! Thompson’s performance really struck a chord with her fellow countrymen too; Alpin’s original hit #1 in the downloads chart just hours after Rachael’s version aired.
