X Factor 2016: Kittipos Maspun duets with Nicole Scherzinger... but it's still four nos

Kittipos Maspun got to duet with Nicole Scherzinger on The X Factor 2016 tonight.

The 23 year-old student from Thailand auditioned for the show this evening having flown just to sing for the judges.

"The reason why I'm here in the UK is because I love The X Factor," he told the panel.

Singing Memory from Cats, Kittipos struggled with the lyrics... step up, Nicole!

The former performer from the musical helped out Kittpos by singing the first verse along with him before he went solo to complete the track.

And while he did - eventually - finish the song, it was still four nos.

Simon Cowell said: "It probably didn't go exactly where you thought it was going to, I like you but this is not for you, it's a no today."

Nicole concluded: "I'd like to go to karaoke with you."

Simon then couldn't help but get in a jibe at Andrew Lloyd Webber after the musical icon complained earlier this year when Nicole snubbed his production for The X Factor.

"That one's for you, Andrew," remarked Simon.

The X Factor 2016 auditions continue next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
