Rion Paige doesn't want anyone feeling sorry for her — and after watching this jaw-dropping, inspirational clip, it's hard to see how anyone could. The 13-year-old is drop-dead gorgeous, as poised as they come, and has a set of pipes that will blow your socks off. True, the "X Factor USA" contestant is nearly blind in one eye and suffers from a condition called arthrogryposis multiplex congenita which causes the joints in her hands to curve. But her challenges haven’t stopped her from developing an incredible voice that brought the house down at her recent performance. Not only that, it brought the tough-to-please Simon Cowell to his feet. "I think you're literally extraordinary. I really do," Cowell said.
"I remember the first day I met Carrie Underwood and I remember predicting this girl was going to go on and do special things with her life and I'm going to say the same about you, Rion. I'm going to remember this audition for a long, long time." So will we, Rion. Start feeling the tingles around 3:04.
