Rising star Grace Davies has wowed the crowds at her homecoming performance in Blackburn’s Cathedral Quarter.

Thousands gathered to watch the X-Factor finalist who performed a collection of songs including some the talented songstress had written herself.

The show took place in front of the town’s impressive £25 million Cathedral Quarter and saw a giant screen erected especially for the event.

Earlier in the day the former warehouse worker and barmaid took part in a whistle stop tour of the borough on board the X-Factor battlebus.

A seasoned performer the 20 year-old, who will battle it out for the top spot this weekend, has sung at a number of venues across the borough including King George’s Hall.

Her mentor Sharon Osbourne, who joined Grace on her homecoming tour, has said she has a successful career ahead of her and already has a back catalogue of original songs which are surefire hits.

Cllr Phil Riley, Blackburn with Darwen Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said:

We were delighted to have Grace back in town and the rest of the X Factor team including, of course, the world famous Sharon Osbourne!!

It’s been great for the town and created a lot of excitement seeing such home grown talent. Blackburn is a special place, and of course everybody has got fully behind her, we are extremely proud of what Grace has achieved and hope she goes on to now win the show.

Everyone who has been at tonight’s concert needs to vote again for Grace at the weekend and must get their families and friends voting as well. Good luck Grace!
