The X Factor auditions are a stressful ordeal in themselves and who won’t want to touch it before attending. This 16-year-old singer, however, managed to be too intense for Simon Cowell.
16-year-old Curtis Moore from Birmingham, UK, has been hoping for one thing his entire life: an X Factor audition. He had high hopes that it would fundamentally change his life.
After his brother’s passing Curtis turned to a life of petty crime and ended up incarcerated. “I was kind of grieving,” said Curtis when explaining his life story.
While all focused and to the point he didn’t expect the judges will want to get to know him better, so he raised his voice in a show of aggravation. “Sorry for asking,” said Simon Cowell while Curtis continued: “alright let me sing, let me sing now.”
The judges were still hanging around and letting Mario perform “Let Me Love You” (2017). When Simon Cowell stopped him and tried to have a constructive conversation, Curtis’ sid’s words provoked Cowell’s response: “Kurtis, you and I are going to have a little chat.” and that’s called attitude.”
After some harsh words, Cowell admitted that he really liked Curtis and his dazzle, but that he should start listening to what people are saying and take the criticism for it. Curtis also added that he has this problem and is working on fixing it.
Despite that attitude check, Curtis Moore still got all four yeses. This brought him one step closer to recreating his dream.
