Everyone knows that Simon Cowell is the man to please when hopeful singers audition for shows like the X Factor UK. Even though Simon can be very surly and quite rude at times, his "yes" vote is the single most important one on the show, and it's the only vote that contestants secretly aim for.
Simon seems to have the power to make or break a singer's future. If Simon takes notice of one of the singers and their talents, then you can be sure they'll make it to the finals at the end of the show.
They were surprised when he said he was going to perform a '60s doo-wop classic. But then he started singing and they could barely believe their ears.
When Sam starts belting out his rendition of singer Dion's "Runaround Sue," everyone was shocked that the young man even knew the lyrics to this doo-wop classic! It's not exactly popular music these days with young millennials.
Still, it's a classic tune and Sam pulls it off. His different choice in audition material gives him an edge, but combined with his vocals, it ends up being quite the impressive performance.
But, more importantly, does Sam actually wow the judges with this upbeat tune? Considering one of the judges ended up dancing along, it's quite the ending to his audition that you'll have to check out.
