36. Phenomenal

The second I finished, I was greeted with applause. My usual smile didn't make its way onto my face. All I could feel inside my chest was Niall. My heart was beating to the memories. The entire journey I had through the XFactor had swept Niall completely from my memory and now was finally the time for it to resurface. It was like someone had cut open a scar or someone had ripped my heart out of my chest.

"Briana!" Louis greeted me joyfully, "That was, by far, one of the best performances you've given yet!" His words managed a smile onto my lips. Finally bringing me back to reality as the crowd cheered to his words, "That was beautiful! You really captured the crowd and me as well! You know, I really saw a genuine side to you and I felt like you were singing something through your song and you proved right there that you deserve to be here."

"Hi there, darling," Tulisa said in a friendly tone. It made me laugh and she smiled at me, "You were absolutely stunning out there, Briana. Absolutely breathtaking. I honestly do not know if I was breathing during your performance," She admitted and the crowd cheered as I smiled, my eyes blinking a few times, "You know, Skinny Love is an extremely hard song to sing and I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful you owned it. I was surprised when I heard the music but I can’t believe you pulled it off. It was flawless. I really saw emotions during this performance. I saw these feelings as if you were singing about someone so if you were, sweetheart, this boy is missing out!" Cheers filled the room.

"Briana, you are a talented vocalist. I've said that from the beginning and by God, if you don't know that by know than you are just about the most ridiculous girl in the world," Gary with with a playful smile. I smiled and I could feel my modesty poking at it, as if it was taunting me, but I nodded, "Now Briana, don't get me wrong because I've got a lot to say. From your first audition to now, we've seen mostly upbeat, energetic songs. Songs that fit your range. So when we were told this week's theme, I wondered if you would be able to take on the kind of slow, more serene performance."

My thoughts trailed to my efforts to not bite my lip. My fingers began playing with the microphone in my hand, tapping the end of it with my fingertips to distract my brain from my heart from my body.

"And I was blown away with how well you did it," Gary commented. I smiled gently as the crowd clapped, "You have a very versatile voice, Briana, and that's what a true vocalist needs. I see great potential in you, sweetheart. Great job, love."

"My little baby," Kelly cheered as it came to her. A laugh escaped my lips as I looked at her, "I knew all along you wouldn't disappoint me. You, my dear, have made it so far and you are going to go so much farther," She stated simply and the crowd chanted, making me smile, "Just as everyone else has said, I saw raw emotions during your performance, babe. Something in the way you sang, the look in your eyes, it was like you were singing to someone and if someone broke your heart, bless their soul because they lost one heck of a girl!" The crowd cheered for her just as they had for Tulisa, "You sang your heart out, literally and that's what you need in a singer, Briana. You have the potential to be an absolute star."

After her last words, I walked myself off the stage, handing the microphone off as soon as I could. I don't know what came over me. I don't even know where the tears had come from. But the second I began to walk passed all of the crew members and head to my dressing room, the tears flowed from my eyes. The lump in my throat threatened my stomach to be sick as a sob escaped my throat.
