Who knew the stone-cold Simon Cowell actually had a heart. Its hard to believe, but the infamously brutal judge got emotional after watching a performance on X Factor by contestant Jillian Jensen.
Only 19 years old from Massachusetts, Jensen beautifully sang “Who You Are” on last Wednesday’s X Factor season premier. Describing the performance as “Incredible”, Simon Cowell was clearly holding back tears and emotions. Its hard to believe that such a compliment and good reaction could come from the man we’ve all come to know as ‘soulless’.
The video above shows the entire segment and performance, but Simon’s response can be found at the 8:05 mark.
How did Jillian’s performance make you feel? Do you think that her emotional story will gain her support or be just the opposite?
