Willie Jones' audition for X Factor at Greensboro, Lousiana charmed the lady judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato and left L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell speechless. The 17-year-old shocked everyone as he took the stage and bursted into a country song. Girls in the audience could not stop screaming as the singer graced the stage as a true Southern gentleman.
"Willie Jones, you are an absolute original!" Reid said. "That was amazing!"
Spears commented, "I was very surprised. I wasn't expecting that. Like LA said, it was very original of you to do what you just did."
"What I liked about you is that you're really likable," Lovato said.
Cowell gave the biggest and possibly foretelling compliment saying that Jones was beyond his expectation. Cowell saw a star in the making.
"Willie, this is why I wanted to come to Greensboro. I prayed we were going to find somebody like you, but you've gone beyond my expectations. You surprised me. I think your voice is a sensational recording voice. I will remember this time. The first day I heard Willie Jones. This is a day to remember, I'm telling you," Cowell sincerely said.
All four judges voted with enthusiasm for Jones to pass to the next level.
