Viewers saw a soft side of a usually pretty tough judge on the ‘X Factor.’
A contestant on the talent show made Simon Cowell emotional during a cover of the song ‘Jealous’ by Labrinth.
Josh Daniel, a 21-year-old car mechanic, dedicated the performance to his late best friend, as he sang the lyrics with a different meaning than the artist.
The rendition of the track lead to on-screen breakdowns for many, including Cowell, who was reminded of the passing of his mother.
Daniel’s mom is his biggest fan and, with three yeses, he also sang his way into the judges’ hearts.
