Tina Arena returned to the music scene in September with “You Set Fire To My Life” — her first pop single in nine years — and has been busy promoting it with appearances on Australian TV shows ever since. The “Chains” hitmaker performed the song live for the first time on X Factor last night (October 20) and reminded everyone exactly what we’ve been missing for the past decade.

Few voices compare to Tina’s in top flight, which she proved with a masterful rendition of the Swedish-produced mid-tempo pop ballad. The 45-year-old put on a vocal master class — hitting notes that most divas only dream of. Needless to say the track is currently shooting up Australian iTunes and looks set to be a massive hit.

Touchingly, the big-lunged diva was also reunited with Dannii Minogue. They both came to fame on a children’s TV show called Young Talent Time in the early ’80s and had a couple of kinds words to say about each other after the performance. Watch up top.

Tina’s excellent new album Reset was released in Australia last week. An international release is set to follow. Let us know if you enjoyed her performance in the comments below.
