Rita Ora And Louisa Johnson Tackle The Mighty "And I Am Telling You" @ X-Factor Semi-final

Rita Ora brought the goods when the time came to duet with her mentee, Louisa Johnson on the X-Factor semi-finals last weekend. Singing the done-to-death, singing contest staple, And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going, the pair used the belt-heavy show tune to peacock their respective instruments for the voting public.

I think for those only tangibly aware of Rita's singing career, the performance may actually give cause to think twice when judging her potential. Ultimately, it's not the best showing of the Dreamgirls' torch song, but Rita's elastic delivery and multiple F5s are worth checking out. They might come as a surprise to those of you who instinctively think of the "I don't know her" Gif whenever the Diva's name comes up.

Warning, though. There is no emotion or filling to this. The song was purely chosen as an excuse to belt and showboat. And just to make sure you remember this, they both helpfully smile throughout.
