Conor McGinty stunned The X Factor 2016 judges in tonight's latest auditions.

Conor is a 21 year-old Boots photographic assistant from Derry in Northern Ireland who brought his biggest fans along to watch his audition.

"They're really excited, my mum, dad and girlfriend are outside waiting," he said in this evening's latest show.

As Conor performed A Great Big World's Say Something in front of the panel, Conor's mum was left welling up as she watched on with Dermot O'Leary outside the judges room.

Inside and Simon Cowell concluded after the powerful performance: "It was just you and the piano, it was your song."

Louis Walsh commented: "It was magic, it really was.

Sharon Osborune said: "Beautiful performance, I'm really, really, impressed."

"You did your own version, it had some fire, and you meant it," added Nicole Scherzinger.

With four big yeses from the judges, Conor sailed through to bootcamp later this year.

The X Factor 2016 auditions return Sunday night at 8PM on ITV.

And don't forget all new Xtra Factor LIVE which airs straight after on ITV2, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson.
