Rion Paige handily survived the Girls’ turn in the “four-chair challenge” on Thursday’s “X Factor” after receiving unanimous praise from the judges for her flawless performance.

The 13-year-old, who revealed in her first audition that she’s partially blind and disabled, movingly performed “I Won’t Let Go” by the Rascal Flatts.

Kelly Rowland told Paige afterward, “Rion, I love your voice. I love how happy and excited you are when you sing. I just love watching you.”

Simon Cowell declared, “Well, Ryan, when you’ve got it, you got it, right?”

“And I really, really like your voice,” he continued. “And I think we’re scratching the surface here.”

Mentor Demi Lovato pointed out, “You’re only 13 and you have such a mature voice coming out of you. And you know, when I look at you, I don’t see anything different.”

“Rion, you are an incredibly special girl. I can’t let you go,” added Lovato.
