Kevin Davy White brought a Whole Lotta Love to The X Factor final on Saturday night as he opened the show with the Led Zeppelin track.

The French guitarist and singer wowed the crowd at the ExCeL Arena with a stunning performance of the 1969 song.

Judge Louis Walsh was equally impressed, telling Davy White he never thought he would see Led Zeppelin covered on the ITV singing competition.

Viewers on Twitter also praised the finalist, who is in Nicole Scherzinger’s Overs category.

@WaronFacades tweeted: “The man just killed a Led Zeppelin song,” while @_missamyday said: “I’m the biggest Led Zeppelin fan ever and never like covers, but Kevin did AMAZING.”

@RoxxieToxxic tweeted: “As the worlds biggest Led Zeppelin fan there’s your winner right there.”

@Cazzapanda wrote: “Kevin singing #LedZeppelin on #XFactorFinal at last decent music… that was bloody amazing.”
