Victoria Carriger, Mother of Eight, Covers Kelly Clarkson on The X Factor

by at .

Victoria Carriger is a mother of eight.

But somewhere in between parenting, the Missouri native found some time for voice lessons… because she blew The X Factor panel away last night with her cover of Kelly Clarkson's "Because of You."

"I thought that was extraordinary," Simon Cowell said simply, while Demi Lovato added: “It was very unique. I feel the pain in your voice, and I’m rooting for you.”
