Kevin Davy White tried his luck on The X Factor 2017 at the weekend after previously appearing on The Voice in France.

Former electrician turned full time musician, 29-year-old Kevin Davy White originally comes from Paris.

Having quit his "boring" day job, Kevin is now hoping to make it in the music industry.

He previously took part in The Voice France in 2016 but didn't manage to get any of the coaches spinning around.

Hoping for better luck here in the UK on The X Factor, Kevin said in tonight's show: "The X Factor is a really big stage and I want people to hear my music.

"Now I'm going to take my moment and I hope the judges love what I'm doing."

At his room audition, Kevin grabbed his guitar to sing James Brown's It's A Man's Man's World

Following the performance, Nicole Scherzinger was left amazed.

"Who are you and where did you come from because I LOVE you!" she declared, "You, your voice, you can make a record. A real record, I would listen to your voice."

And Sharon Osbourne quipped: "You don't need a microphone, you have a huge voice!"

With four yeses, Kevin sailed through to the next round of the competition.

He'll go on to sing at bootcamp, hoping for a place at the six chair challenge next month.

Other acts on this weekend's auditions includde 32-year-old Talia Dean who has previously had a chance encounter with both Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger.

We also met mixed group New Dynamix while Jedward meets Justin Bieber with duo Pretty Boy Karma, made up of 19-year-old twins Philip and Achilles originally from Athens, Greece.

The X Factor 2017 auditions return next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
