After initially impressing in the blind auditions, Heidi’s singing journey has been cut short.

In the battle to earn a place for the semi-finals, Heidi lost out to contestant Dara.

Mum Kerry tearfully watched from the sidelines as Heidi battled it out to try and earn her place. The 12-year-old singer performed Shakira’s ‘Whenever, Wherever’ for the judges.

Kerry Katona has opened up about daughter Heidi’s battles with anxiety

At the blind audition stage, Heidi wowed the judges with her performance of Macy Gray’s ‘I Try’ and earned a place on Paloma Faith’s team.

However, the young singer couldn’t hide her nerves.

Heidi gets really bad anxiety so to see her do something so big and face her fear, I couldn’t be prouder.

Despite getting two judges to turn their chairs, Heidi burst out in tears after her performance. But her voice alone was enough to impress the judges, and Paloma Faith offered to be her mentor.

Mum Kerry could be seen jumping for joy backstage as judges turned their chairs for her daughter.

“Heidi gets really bad anxiety so to see her do something so big and face her fear, I couldn’t be prouder.

“I’m in bits. Love you, you’re my hero.”
