As much as we love James Arthur (perhaps too much...), Ella Henderson brought SHAME upon the British public tonight after a blinding performance of Cher's 'Believe' at the National Television Awards made us all question how she could have been allowed to be voted out of the X Factor so early.

WE'RE SORRY ELLA. WE COULDN'T AFFORD THE PHONE VOTES.

Ella brought the O2 Arena to a silent standstill as she belted out Cher's number one, and those who were naysayers about the song choice (yeah, alright, us, whatever, we didn't like it on the X Factor) soon shut up and felt foolish.

Check her out.

SHAMAZING.
