A performance from X Factor 2015 contestant was so emotional that Simon Cowell seemed to lose his composure during the audition which was shown on tonight’s Xfactor on ITV

Explaining the choice of song, the Durham hopeful Josh told the judges: “I lost my best friend a couple of years ago and I interpret the lyrics in a completely different way.”

Tentions were already in place and the silence at the very beginning of the song created suspense for everyone but then the passionate performance kicked in and the audience fell silent.

Josh Daniel sang with so much feeling that it was felt by everyone watching, whether in the audience or on their TV’s.

The TV mogul Cowell refrained from commenting on 21 year old’s car mechanic Josh Daniel’s audition in Manchester, which also moved fellow judge Cheryl to tears with his rendition of Jealous by Labrinth. Simon who always appeared to be in deep thought during the song and at points appeared to be wiping away the tear and struggling to hold his composure.
