19-Year-Old Brings Judges to Tears on The X Factor UK 2016 (VIDEO)
It’s the season premiere of The X Factor UK 2016, and the most noteworthy audition of the evening came from 19-year-old Christian Burrows, who brought the judges to tears with a song dedicated to his late brother.
Christian is a singer-songwriter in the mold of Ed Sheeran, but the judges weren’t impressed with the first song he sang. So Christian offered to perform one of his own original songs, a track about his late brother which only his mother had ever heard him play before. Simon asked Christian if he was sure he wanted to share something so deeply personal with them, and Christian came to the conclusion that he was finally ready for the world to hear his song. Needless to say, the judges were completely floored by what they heard, leaving Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne fighting back tears, and Simon Cowell completely speechless. It was the highlight of the night, in my opinion. Watch the performance video below:
