Only one episode in and Simon Cowell has used the coveted Golden Buzzer on singer Calum Scott, from Hull.
His version of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” was so good, Simon Cowell seemed to have no choice but to use the Golden Buzzer this early.
This means Calum is through to the live semi-finals regardless of what the other judges think. Personally, I don’t think the other judges are going to be upset at Simon pressing the button especially after seeing Calum’s breathtaking performance…
Jade Scott sister to Calum took to the stage to sing Jessie Ware’s “Say You Love Me.” and U2’s “With or Without You” but was rejected because the nerves were affecting her performance.
Shake those nerves off and try again next year or when The X Factor returns later this year because Jade does have a good voice.
Calum followed sister Jade’s performance. While Calum appeared nervous he didn’t let that affect his audition. As the song ended Simon pressed the Golden Buzzer and the crowd went wild. Calum even got a standing ovation from the hard to impress judge.
Simon Cowell to Calum,”I’ve never ever in all the years that I’ve done this show, heard a guy with the talent you’ve got.”
Check out his audition below. Only one episode in but do you think we already have our winner?
