Her powerful performance on the opening weekend of The X Factor certainly got people talking.

And now the public have thrown their support behind local lass Molly Scott as she heads to the next stage of the competition.

Molly blew judges Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Robbie William and wife Ayda Field away - gaining four yeses to secure her spot at the next round.

Tomlinson, whose band One Direction was formed on The X Factor in 2010, even compared 16-year-old Molly to pop superstar and Grammy award-winning Christina Aguilera.

The teenager, who just collected her GCSE results at English Martyrs in Hartlepool last month, was the talk of social media after her performance aired on Saturday.

Here is some of the reaction to Molly's performance from the Hartlepool Mail Facebook page, and from Twitter after the show:
