Simon Cowell was in a generous mood last night, allowing a hopeful contestant to return for a second audition.
The judging panel all liked Gregor Coleman, but were not sure he was ready for the competition.
The Glaswegian busker had, according to them, picked up some bad performance habits.
And Simon felt he’d heard auditions like his a million times.
The 24-year-old came back and blew everyone away with his second attempt – a shot at Rihanna’s Stay.
Viewers were also impressed, but some were more than a little distracted by one of Gregor’s tattoos.

He has a giant and very colourful butterfly across his neck.
“#xfactor he can sing but that neck tattoo… NOPE,” tweeted one.
A second wrote: “Throat tattoo makes me feel slightly sick. Why would you DO that #XFactor”
A third posted: “Why would anyone want a huge tattoo on their neck ‘XFactor”
Well, Gregor actually cleared that one up. When asked about it, he said it was because he’d run out of space elsewhere.
