Ben Haenow impressed the judges at his X Factor 2014 Audition ealier this summer.
The 29-year-old van driver performed a rendition of ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ by Bill Withers for the panel – Simon Cowell, Mel B, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
Ben’s look got the judges attention from the moment he walked through the door, because he looked like a pop star and after showcasing his vocals, it was clear to the panel that he sounds like a pop star too.
Simon Cowell told him:
“I am really surprised that someone with your talent hasn’t got a record deal, I really am but maybe you made the wrong decisions.”
