And on Wednesday, she amazed judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams , as she performed in the auditions at the London Palladium in the hope of going through to the live semi-finals.
According to The Sun, Simon Cowell called it "a moment with a capital M," and told the singer: "You should be very proud.

“It’s really important what you just did because it’s easy to forget something like that with everything that’s going on in the world.
"For everyone who lost their lives and had all this crap thrown at them, you’ve had the courage to come out here and pay tribute. You did something very special for them and for you.
“That’s what I call a moment with a capital ‘M’.”
Leanne gave evidence in the enquiry about the disaster, and shocked the crowd when she told them she had "survived Grenfell."
