Raymond (X Factor 2012)

77-year-old auditonee Raymond Patterson is through to bootcamp after impressing Tulisa on The X Factor 2012 auditions this weekend.

Seventy-seven-year-old Raymond was 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 didn’t know who they were!

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

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

He added: "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 was impressed.

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

Nicole added: "Not bad for a young kid like yourself! Thank you."

Gary commented: "There are two members of Westlife and I've never seen them look so worried!

Louis raved: "That's how to do an audition, fantastic!"

With four yeses, Raymond is off to bootcamp!
