Meet your new crush, Jake Quickenden.
In 2012, the handsome singer made it to the Judge’s House phase on X Factor, but never made it to the live show. This year, he auditioned again.
While his performance of John Legend’s “All of Me” left Mel B. unimpressed, Simon Cowell did his Mr-Nice-Guy routine and gave the 25-year-old another chance. And boy are we glad he did!
His second song, an emotional rendition of “Say Something” by A Great Big World, blew the judges away and has already garnered 3 million views on YouTube and growing. Even Snooki tweeted about him!
Watch the clip of his audition and you’ll understand why.
The X Factor UK airs on AXS TV on Sundays and Mondays at 8pmET | 5pmPT.
