Raymond (X Factor 2012)

A 77-year-old auditonee impresses Tulisa on The X Factor 2012 auditions this weekend.

Seventy-seven-year-old Raymond is seen preparing to sing Westlife’s You Raise Me Up at his audition in Newcastle, but when he meets Kian and Mark from the band, he doesn’t know who they are.

Xtra Factor presenter Caroline tells Raymond: “These guys are quite good at singing that song.” But Raymond doesn’t know who they are

He replies: “I don’t really know what Westlife looks like, but I know one of them’s a blonde haired lad.”

He adds: "I don’t know what to expect. I’ve never been in front of a crowd as big as this before. I’ll give it a go. It’s the only chance I’m going to get. I might pop my clogs before I get to the end of it, but I’ll enjoy it”

After singing for the panel, Tulisa is impressed.

She says: "I absolutely loved that audition; I think that was a beautiful performance."

Will it be off to bootcamp for Raymond?

The Xtra Factor airs on ITV2 , 9.25pm, Saturday 1st September
