Matt Terry was told by a clairvoyant to chase a career in music.
The 24-year-old singer is forever grateful to the psychic who predicted he will become a singer, and he believes it had an influence on him auditioning and eventually winning 'The X Factor' last year.
He said: "When I was 16 someone stopped me and said: 'You have this blue aura, you will be a recording artist' and I was like: 'Perfect.'
"And then I went on 'The X Factor'. I didn't understand how it works - but it does."
The 'Subeme La Radio' hitmaker says he's regularly stopped in the streets for readings and is told he has an air about him.
He told The Daily Star newspaper: "I always get psychics and people who read palms stop me in the street and say I have something about me.
"Every time I have been to a boot fair with my nan or just in the street they feel they have to stop me. It's really weird."
Meanwhile, Matt - who releases his debut studio album 'Trouble' on November 24 - says he's thrilled Nicole Scherzinger, who was his mentor on the ITV talent show, is reuniting with the Pussycat Dolls.
He said: "She's wanted the reunion for so long I'm so happy for her.
"I think younger guys think it's even nicer seeing older women do it.
"But anyway, they look the same now as all those years ago."
The girl group - who split in 2009 after six years together - created a new website, entitled PCD Reunion, confirming the 'When I Grow Up' hitmakers are getting back together in the near future.
The emergence of the website earlier this month came just a week after speculation Nicole was set to reunite with her former bandmates Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta, and Melody Thornton.
A source said: "Talk of the girls getting back together has been rife for a few years now and they have finally found a time which works for them all.
"They are still deciding whether it will involve a full tour or just a handful of performances but they are excited to be getting out there together again...
"When they parted ways in 2009 it was only intended to be a hiatus, so it feels like the right thing to do."
