UPDATE: Paige was eliminated on November 29, 2012.

In
The X Factor Season 2 premiere, we meet the darling (and super talented) Paige Thomas in unfortunate circumstances: as the target of Kaci Newton’s malicious mocking. Turns out, Kaci falls flat on her face during auditions — but Paige made it all the way to the live shows and on into the Top 12!

In short: get ready to fall in love with this soulful singer, who also happens to be a single mother to her 3-year-old daughter. And that's not the only hardship this gorgeous diva has faced in her life; Paige lost her mom when she was only six years old.

This isn’t Paige’s first live talent competition rodeo; she made it through auditions and into
American Idol boot camp during both Season 10 and Season 11.

Check out Paige’s cover of Rihanna’s “Cold Case Love” below!
