Did Stacy Francis Make it Through 'X Factor' Boot Camp? (VIDEO)

Stacy FrancisIt's been a series of ups and downs for 'X Factor' contestant Stacy Francis. First, thanks to the lack of an age limit for contestants, the 42-year old was allowed to compete despite an almost crippling lack of self-esteem.

Then, the standing ovation for her knock-out audition was followed by judge Simon Cowell telling her to tone it down after her next performance. To cap it off, the day Francis arrived at boot camp she had received the devastating news that her father had died.

Last night she revealed that she'd missed her dad's funeral in order to stay in the competition. Was her sacrifice worth it?

Saying "I know he's with me tonight," Francis did manage to hold it together and belted out a powerful version of 'Summertime.' Her vocals weren't, perhaps, quite as toned-down as Cowell would have liked, but her performance was good enough to see her safely through to the next round.

Francis now goes on to the "Judges' Mansions" round in which she and the rest of the over-30s will be mentored by Nicole Scherzinger. Click here for a full list of who else went through last night and to see Scherzinger's hilarious reaction when she found out she'll be kicking it with the oldies.

'The X Factor' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8PM ET on Fox.

Check out Josh Krajcik on YouTube.com singing his own song "Shut Your Mouth" and you'll be convinced he's about to be a huge star. Really great to find an American artist of this caliber hidden amongst us. An amazing talent.
