Young Man Shocks His Parents in the Audience with a Super Surprise X Factor Audition
(no idea what this has to do with 'slechte grappen'.. ??)
X Factor judges Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos were bowled over by 22-year-old Craig Colton’s performance in the second of this year’s audition episodes.
Craig’s audition was different to most X Factor appearances from the outset, as the biscuit factory worker revealed that although his parents were in the audience, they had no idea that he would be singing.
As the judges probed him on who he had brought to the audition, he admitted: ‘They definitely know I sing but they donât know Iâm here today.
‘I just told them that I was gutted that I couldnât go because I was in work this morning, so I made my mum iron my uniform so it was believable. Sorry mum!’
Having had the audience in stitches before his audition, Craig then had everyone on their feet as he sang Adele’s Hiding My Heart, wowing the judges and his parents with his powerful performance.
‘That was an amazing audition because what we are looking for is someone with a recording voice, and youâve definitely got a recording voice,’ Louis told Craig.
Kelly added: ‘Craig, you are a true performer, you came up here, you wooed everybody with your voice, with your wit.
‘I love how quick you are with everybody up here, and I think you are adorable.’
With the judges in agreement that they wanted to see Craig at boot camp, the elated 22-year-old was sent through with a unanimous vote from the judging panel as his proud parents were pictured in the crowd.
