THE X Factor judges were left in tears tonight when teen Christian Burrows auditioned with a moving song named Thunder Buddy, written about his late brother who died at two months old, a choice that Simon called “brave.”
Christian who is one of eight children then revealed to the judges that he writes his own songs and that he had one about his brother who died when he was young.
The nervous lad said: “It’s a song that means everything to me, and only my mum’s heard it.”
As soon as Christian started singing the heartfelt song which opened with the lines: “I would do anything just to be two years old again, imagine what we could have done, imagine what we could have been”, the judges were visibly moved, with Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne having to wipe away tears.
