A 90s legend, Janice Robinson, auditioned for this year's X-Factor.

The 50-year-old is a mother to two daughters and made a name for herself in the '90s as the lead singer of Livin' Joy.

Their floor-filler song 'Dreamer', which was released in 1995, charted at number 1 in the US Hot Dance Club Play Chart that year, as well as peaking at number 1 in the UK Singles Chart.

She also pursued a solo career and toured with Tina Turner!

Robbie had to hold back tears when he realised who the singer was and former Directioner, Louis Tomlinson, branded the song an absolute "banger."
