|On X-Factor Josh Daniels, left, turned in such|
a good audition that he made Simon Cowell cry.
The most telling reaction was a silent one from the show's longtime curmudgeon Simon Cowell.
Josh Daniels, 21 performed the song "Jealous" by Labrinth. He reinterpreted the lyrics to sing about the jealousy he has that his best friend, who died a couple years ago, is happy in heaven and left Josh here on earth.
Daniels' performance was breathtaking, and he more than deserved the vote to move on to the next round.
Simon Cowell, for once, was speechless, and overcome with emotion. His mother recently died, so that was surely a factor.
Any singer like Daniels who can move an audience for any reason deserves success. See for yourself with this clip:
