It's X Factor auditions like this that prove ANYTHING is possible!!
Meet Rion Paige, a 13-year-old from Jacksonville, Florida who has a condition called arthrogryposis, which makes it very difficult to use her hands.
The upbeat teen manages to stay optimistic and has a strong passion for music, and said she didn't wan't the judges to take pity on her because of her disability!
Trust us, that was NOT an issue!
Rion decided to sing Carrie Underwood's Blown Away, which only seems appropriate because everyone in the room was in awe once she put her vocal chords to use!!
Not only did the entire audience give her a standing ovation, but all four judges couldn't help but get to their feet an applaud the talented youngster!!
And of course it wouldn't be a true happy ending if she didn't move on to the next round! Congrats, Rion!!
Ch-ch-check out the inspirational audition (above)!
UPDATE: Rion's audition has blown up on Youtube and has over 4.5 million views in less than a week!!!
