The last contestant to sing for the judges after a long, grueling day of auditions, is 21-year-old Josh Daniel.

Known for being emotionless and sometimes mean, Simon Cowell reminds him it's been a very long day. Basically asking him if his time is going to be wasted.

As Josh is introducing himself, he says is going to sing "Jealous" by Labrinth because "it means a lot to me for a different reason than how Labrinth wrote it...I lost my best friend a couple of years ago. And I kind of interpret the lyrics in completely different way."

He goes on saying,

"The lyrics kind of say 'I'm jealous you're happy without me.' And I kind of see it in the sense that I'm jealous that he's now happy in heaven, that he's moved on to a better place and that I can't still be with him."

The second Josh begins singing, Simon Cowell looks completely stunned, almost as if he'd seen a ghost. Fellow judge Cheryl Cole looks to Simon to begin the judging, and he gives her a look saying he isn't ready to talk yet.

Through her tears, she says, "that was the most captivated I've been in all the auditions," and asked for a hug. She starts the voting without Simon giving feedback. When it was his turn to vote, all he said was, "Yes it's three yeses."

The judges walked off stage and Simon just felt the need to be alone. This song and Josh's message struck Simon down to his core, so much so that he couldn't speak or be around anyone.

How powerful.

Josh told his mom, "I hope I did him proud." To which his mom said, "You did do him proud, son."

Lyrics

I'm jealous of the rain
That falls upon your skin
It's closer than my hands have been
I'm jealous of the rain
I'm jealous of the wind
That ripples through your clothes
It's closer than your shadow
Oh, I'm jealous of the wind, cause

I wished you the best of
All this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There's nothing to forgive
But I always thought you'd come back, tell me all you found was
Heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

I'm jealous of the nights
That I don't spend with you
I'm wondering who you lay next to
Oh, I'm jealous of the night
I'm jealous of the love
Love that was in here
Gone for someone else to share
Oh, I'm jealous of the love, cause

I wished you the best of
All this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There's nothing to forgive
But I always thought you'd come back, tell me all you found was
Heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

As I sink in the sand
Watch you slip through my hands
Oh, as I die here another day
Cause all I do is cry behind this smile

I wished you the best of
All this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There's nothing to forgive
But I always thought you'd come back, tell me all you found was
Heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me...
