In 2015, Louisa auditioned for The X Factor, singing pop music group The Jackson 5’s “Who’s Lovin’ You.”

Johnson received a standing ovation from all four judges and progressed through to “bootcamp.” Louisa said that she chose this record since “it is a really, really hard song to sing, but I wanted to make a good impression.”

At “bootcamp,” the singer made it past the 6-chair challenge to “judges’ houses,” singing “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” by Jennifer Hudson.

At the judges’ houses, Louisa sang “Respect” by Aretha Franklin.

She later advanced to the finals along with Ché Chesterman (a singer-songwriter from Basildon, Essex, who studied music at college) and Reggie ‘n’ Bollie (a Ghanaian music duo that consists of Bollie Babeface and Reggie Zippy).

I recently discovered Lousia while surfing some talent sites. She literally blew my doors off. her singing talent is just incredible!! My favorite song on the X factor was "Billie Jean" I didn't anyone could do justice to a Micheal Jackson song other than Micheal. I read that she has had only moderate success since X factor win. Personally, I think she is national treasure for the U.K. Maybe she should try out the US to market her unbelievable talents.

I thought when I first heard her sing, she would be an instant success. I suppose her producers, her promoters, and the writers need to click. I wish the best, she has the talant.
