The self-confessed geek from Derbyshire performed a unique take on Candyman by Christina Aguilera for the panel as auditions moved to Manchester with guest judge Mel B.
Louis, Gary Tulisa were all impressed with the performance.
Louis gushed: "I didn’t know what to expect, you’re quirky and you’re different, but you remind me a bit of Peter Kay – in a good way, I think you’ve definitely got something."
Tulisa added: "I think we’ve got a nerd that is very talented"
And Take That hunk Gary said: "Great audition, well done!"
However a grumpy Mel B moaned: "I found it all a little bit irritating, the overdoing the comedic personality thing, I found that irritating."
Fortunately three yeses was all it needed and Curtis went through to bootcamp!
No doubt he'll be happy to know that it'll be Nicole Scherzinger on the panel rather than Mel B for that!
