Previously, Paige Thomas got encouragement from the X Factor USA judges, like Demi Lovato, to have more self-confidence and “keep turning out the music.”

If Paige’s name seems familiar, this is because the single parent to a 3 year old girl, was a former contestant for American Idol’s season 10 and 11 but did not quite make it to the finals.

Now, she is given the chance to fulfill her dreams of fame and fortune on the X Factor stage.

As the reality competition continued, Paige Thomas rose to the challenge and delivered. In fact, during one of her performances at auditions where she sang “I’m Going Down,” had Simon Cowell proclaiming:

“You’re special.”
