Talented: Robbie Hance wowed the judges with his rendition of Damien Rice track Coconut Skins

He's sparked a frantic search party after going missing ahead of the Judges' Houses stage of this year's X Factor.
But on tonight's show (Sunday), viewers watched on as homeless singer Robbie Hance blew the judges away with a stunning acoustic performance of Damien Rice track Coconut Skins.
He explained: 'My current status at the moment is I am homeless. I’ve been homeless for about six years, on and off.

Worried: Robbie has now sparked concerns after going missing ahead of the Judges' Houses stage of the competition

'Two nights out of every fortnight like I’ll stay somewhere like a friend’s house or something, but the rest of the time I’m kicking about on the street. I sleep in doorways, alleyways just trying to keep dry.'
Explaining he was put into care at the age of 13 as his single mother struggled to cope, the 26-year-old musician admitted he felt like 'a burden' on every foster family he became a part of.

Thrilled: Robbie was given a standing ovation by Louis Walsh, Tulisa Contostavlos, Rita Ora and Gary Barlow

Before taking to the stage, he told the judges: 'I have always sung, I don’t think there is anything else in my life that I do with such passion. This competition is obviously a big thing, it could add the element of security, it could change my life, definitely.'

Troubles: Robbie admitted he had been living on the streets of London on and off for six years

And Louis Walsh, Tulisa Contostavlos, guest judge Rita Ora and Gary Barlow were unanimous in their praise for Robbie after the scruffy-haired musician wowed with a stunningly emotional acoustic performance.
Louis said: 'Robbie, I think you are a very talented guy but I don’t think you have had a break in life. I think you absolutely deserve that.'
Tulisa added: 'You look like someone that has been lost for a while and you lost confidence in your skill. I think you need to realise the potential you have and how good you are.'
Unfortunately, Robbie has since gone AWOL and producers are desperately trying to hunt him down.
