There was a lot of talent on display in tonight's X Factor 2016 auditions but one little guy had all the attention.

And he wasn't even auditioning...

Simon Cowell's young son Eric made an appearance in a backstage clip, giving Simon a father's day card (the auditions were filmed back in the summer).

And then he tried to fly, because kids are hilarious like that.

The short clip sent viewers into a frenzy as cutie Eric won the hearts of the nation.

Here's just a few of the gushing reactions on Twitter this evening...
