Drew Ryniewicz Drops Last Name, Blows Away Judges

by at . Comments

She just goes by her first name now. But, following a slow, restrained version of "What a Feeling," Drew Ryniewicz can go by anything she pleases.

In a few weeks, it might even be the following title: first-ever X Factor champion.

This 14-year old made one of the best impressions on last night's two-and-a-half hour extravaganza, showing off talent and maturity far beyond her age and prompting mentor Simon Cowell to gush: "This is why I wanted to be back on American TV, to find someone like you."

Watch one of the top 12 perform now:

No need to be big and bossy and loud, like BIG singer always are. This performer is refreshing and relaxed and soulful - blows me away that she is only 14 years old. Talk about talent. No one is like her - and you only want to hear more from her - after hearing her sing. More. More. MORE
