Khaya Cohen wowed on 'The X Factor'

“The X Factor” season 3 continued Wednesday night, and Khaya Cohen definitely caught people's attention. This 15-year-old from New York sounded like she had potential, but the mentors did not like her first song choice. Was she able to turn things around with her second option?

Khaya Cohen chose to sing “I Put A Spell On You” for her second song on “The X Factor,” and this one got an almost immediate smile from Simon Cowell. Cohen was lucky in that the judges gave her a second chance to impress, and she made the most of it.

Cohen got a standing ovation from the judges, with Simon standing first and saying, “That's what we've been waiting for.” Demi said she can't believe that voice was coming from a 15-year-old, and Paulina lauded her presence. Kelly said she blew the roof off the place and she is phenomenal.

Simon said he loves everything about Khaya, and he feels she is something of a mixture between Amy Winehouse and Adele. Khaya Cohen got four enthusiastic yes votes, and she will be moving ahead. Demi Lovato even said she predicts Cohen will be in the finals.

“The X Factor” spoilers indicate Khaya Cohen is one to watch this season. Could she become the season 3 winner? There's a lot of great talent this season, and fans will be anxious to see how she does. Tune in to “The X Factor” season 3 on FOX Wednesday and Thursday nights to see who stands out this season.
