Ferguson wows the crowds with fine finale

FormerX Factor star Rebecca Ferguson closed the Henley Festival in style on Sunday night.

The headline act, who is several months pregnant, wowed the crowds in a sequined dress as she took to the stage shortly after 9pm.

Ferguson opened with I Hope and also performed covers of Katy Perry’s Roar and, fittingly for the venue, Rolling on a River by Tina Turner.

The grandstand was packed and guests flooded the lawn in front of the stage to watch the Liverpudlian, who also sang a new track from her upcoming third album.

Ferguson, who finished as runner-up in X Factor 2010, looked elegant throughout as she kept the audience captivated with her effortless performance.Her voice had a deep, emotional quality reminiscent of her idols Aretha Franklin and Amy Winehouse.
