Simon Rolls Eyes as He Admits Girlfriend Signed him up for Audition, then he Crushes it with Doo-Wop Classic
Simon seems to have the power to make or break a singer’s future. If Simon takes notice of one of the singers and their talents, then you can be sure they’ll make it to the finals at the end of the show.
Even though Simon can be very surly and quite rude at times, his “yes” vote is the single most important one on the show, and it’s the only vote that contestants secretly aim for.
Unfortunately for 27-year-old Sam Black, he got off on the wrong foot with Simon when he told the judge why he was even appearing on stage. Simon rolls his eyes at the man after he tells the judges, “My girlfriend applied me to be honest, so now I’m here.” It turns out that Sam didn’t really want to be on the show.
They were surprised when he said he was going to perform a ’60s doo-wop classic. But then he started singing and they could barely believe their ears.
When Sam starts belting out his rendition of singer Dion’s “Runaround Sue,” everyone was shocked that the young man even knew the lyrics to this doo-wop classic!
Still, it’s a classic tune and Sam pulls it off. His different choice in audition material gives him an edge, but combined with his vocals, it ends up being quite the impressive performance.
