'Shutuuuuup!' Guy Sebastian dazzled by X Factor's 'next Australian diva' Angel

Nineteen-year-old Angel Tupai was the standout on last night’s episode of X Factor with twin act Paris Lane's questionable performance coming in a close second.

We almost thought Guy Sebastian was going to swear at Angel Tupai before he let out a "sshhutuuuuup" of amazement at her performance of Jessie J's 'Big White Room'.

Guy called the teacher from Sydney’s Parramatta "the next Australian diva", Ronan Keating felt as though he was "in the presence of greatness" and Natalie Bassingthwaighte said, "You are here to stay."

The judges were at odds when it came to double act Paris Lane, who are probably not "Australia’s answer to [Irish pop duo] Jedward" as the show’s promo teased.

"So you’re hotter and you’ve got more skills, so we could go out with both of you at the same time!" Nat said.

"It’s a yes from me, because it was fun."

We're guessing the majority of viewers didn’t jump for joy while watching the 29-year-olds jump around with their hands positioned dangerously close to their crotches.

Or maybe they did.

As per usual, Mel B hit the nail on the head. "Never do that again", she said.

Fifteen-year-old Joel kept the tweenage girls tuned in with his performance of Michael Jackson's 'The Girl is Mine'.

This baby bopper has the talent triad — voice of MJ (no, seriously!), hair of Justin Bieber and eyes the colour of Hawaii's beaches.

Plus, he is so sweet and innocent we almost hid under the couch in shame.

"Michael Jackson is, like, my god … I love music — I’m here to try and live my dream," stuttered the nervous teen.

The only thing Joel can’t do all that well is dance, but we have no doubt some clever video editing could fix that problem.

Mel already seems to have decided Joel is going to win the series, saying, "You're exactly what we’re looking for."

The next teen to impress was 14-year-old country girl Vendulka Wichta who has the voice of a mature angel.

Ronan couldn’t resist running onstage to give Vendi a big hug after she crooned the Beatles 'Blackbird'.

She also won points for her totally cute remark, "you can see my birth certificate if you want", as the doe-eyed judges commented on how she had a voice waaaay beyond her 14 years.

Capping off an action-packed second round of auditions were 20-year-old "B-Boy" Matt Cener and 41-year-old "cowboy" Justin Standley.

Matt got through the round with his performance of Ed Sheeran's 'Lego House', with one tweeter saying, "Eminem eat your heart out."

Justin was the lucky last auditionee. Pretty much everyone in Australia was in tears after the Bundaberg local performed Elton John's 'Rocket Man' and revealed he's on the show to try and contact his three kids who he hasn't seen for 12 years.
