Simon Cowell Cried During A Heartbreaking Audition For The ‘X Factor’… Video

Josh Daniel, a mechanic, won over the globe in 2015 with his heartfelt performance of Labrinth’s ‘Jealous’ on ‘The X Factor’ stage.

He had no idea that his performance would turn him into a fan favorite as well as create an impression on Simon Cowell, one of the show’s toughest judges.

Thomas Woolley, a childhood friend of Daniel’s who auditioned for the show during the second season at the age of 22,

tragically perished in a car accident at the age of just 18. Daniel dedicated his heartfelt performance to Thomas.

Both the panel of judges and the audience were moved to tears by his sincere performance of the song.

Cowell, who is renowned for his hard exterior and direct criticism of the competitors, was moved to tears as he watched the audition.

The recent loss of his mother, Julie, who passed away at the age of 89 just days before Daniel entered the stage, caused his emotional response.

Julie was a fervent supporter of ‘The X Factor,’ and she had a significant impact on Cowell’s choice to go back to work in spite of his grief.

As Daniel performed, Simon’s eyes started to well up with tears, and he struggled to contain them. The song’s

poignant lyrics, which addressed themes of loss and longing, could be understood by both guys.
The R&B song ‘Jealous’was released in 2014 by Cowell’s record label Syco.

Labrinth, Josh Kear, and Natalie Hemby wrote the song in Nashville. The song, which has been labeled a ‘heart-breaking ballad,’ is about a

parent who abandoned him when he was just 4 years old, according to Labrinth, whose real name is Timothy Lee McKenzie,

who stated this in an interview with MTV. He understood that the song would have a broad appeal because so many people have gone through sadness.

Daniel was shocked by Cowell’s emotional response as well because he was unaware of the judge’s loss and suffering before to his audition.

In his introduction video for ‘The X Factor,’ Daniel said, ‘The lyrics kinda said, ‘I’m envious that you’re happy without me,’

and I sorta view it in the sense that I’m jealous that he’s now happy in heaven, that he’s moved on to a better place.

After the program, there was a lot of discussion regarding Cowell’s emotional collapse, and he acknowledged that it was difficult for him to see the audition since it brought back the depressing memories.

‘The participant was unaware of the circumstances. He wasn’t trying to aggravate me, either.

According to Cowell, he sang the song for personal reasons. ‘It was more crucial that he performed well in his audition.

Although it brought me right back to the time and was really raw, I believe it was for the best. Anger is a natural human emotion.

Daniel’s early exit from the singing competition ended up being a blessing in disguise, despite the fact that

he missed the live performances. He kept pursuing his love of music, publishing a cover of ‘Jealous’ and coming up with original songs for his debut single, ‘Nowhere to Hide.’

Through his own label, JD Media, he released music. One of his singles, ‘All I Have,’ peaked at number 13 on the iTunes chart.

Daniel displayed his ability as a multidimensional artist as his music career was booming.

In 2018, he started his own firm, co-founding Schott Packaging with Tom Schott, his best friend and business partner.

For people transferring their homes or businesses, their company offers moving kits. Schott Packaging

grew quickly as a result of commitment and effort, with a predicted $1.38 million in turnover in a short amount of time.
