For those of you who missed the premiere of the X-Factor last night, here's one of the contestants that blew away the judges, and the audience, and will sure to be a contender for the title.

Her name is Rion (Ryan) Paige from Jacksonville Florida.  Rion was born with a rare joint disorder called athrogryposis multiplex congenita.  Also, she's almost permanently blind in her right eye.  But, despite all the obstacles put in front of her, she still has a dream to be an entertainer.  She's not looking for pity, she just wants to be given a chance to prove herself, and after last nights performance, where she got a standing ovation from, not only the audience, but the judges as well, you should plan on seeing more of this talented young lady.
