Jay James sang ‘say something’ by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera on The X Factor 2014 audition and made Mel B cry.
Jay James closed tonight’s X Factor episode with a powerful and emotional rendition of the track.
The 30 years old performer is from West Wales. He’s an ex-navy man, who now works as a full-time dad and a singer.
The former warfare specialist injured his knee when he was working in the navy a few years ago and during his sick leave he started to teach himself guitar and found solace in his music. He has never looked back.
After his performance tonight, Simon Cowell praised the dad of one saying:
“I have got a really good feeling about you. I think everything you have gone through has brought you to this moment.”
