X Factor finalist Lauren Platt was all smiles as she headed to rehearsals for her first live show performance this weekend.

The youngest hopeful left in the competition, Lauren will be battling it out against 11 other finalists for this year's X Factor title.

But, leaving the contestants' house earlier today, Lauren - who celebrated her 17th birthday yesterday (6 October) - didn't let a little competition stop her from flashing a smile!

Heading to rehearsals, Lauren put any nerves she has about her upcoming performance to one side as she looked more than confident while making her way to her waiting car.

Dressed in a cute cut-out maxi dress and metallic gold Nike trainers, Lauren added a little extra glam to her ensemble wearing bright red lipstick and, like a pro, made sure to shoot a smile in the direction of nearby photographers.

Popstar in the making? We sure think so!

As the X Factor goes live this Saturday (11 October), Lauren will be taking to the stage thanks to her winning audition during Judges' Houses.

Joining her mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and her guest Tinie Tempah in Nice, South of France, Lauren made sure to blow both Cheryl and Tinie away with her rendition of 'Beneath Your Beautiful'.

Following her performance, Cheryl told Tinie she loved the tone of Lauren's voice before picking the young singer as one of her three finalists.

Speaking ahead of the live shows, Lauren said: "I'm looking forward to it...getting out there and singing in front of ten million people... that sounds insane.

"I'll have nerves but if I didn't, that would be really strange. I'll just go out there and give everything I've got."

Lauren will be joined by Cheryl's other two girls, Stephanie Nala and Chloe Jasmin.
