THE Vixen blew everyone away tonight with her transformation from geeky quizzer to formidable songstress.
The professional quizzer – real name Jenny Edwards – earned a standing ovation from the judges for her powerful rendition of Somebody To Love by Queen.
Louis Walsh told Jenny she had a “great voice” and Nicole said: “When you open your face hole and that came out I was like: Yeah!”
Meanwhile, Simon Cowell kept his cards close to his chest and simply said: “Good for you.”
And fans went crazy for the Bolton native’s performance.
During her VT, Jennyadmitted she grew up being “the little nerd of the family”.
But her sexy character on The Chase has given Jenny the confidence she needs.
“The Vixen does help me to go out there and be a little bit more confident and mark my territory,” she said.
“The Vixen is the boss in that studio, she’s probably going to eat you alive.”
