A teenager from Cornwall battled his nerves as he faced the X Factor judges in an audition aired last night.
Benji Matthews, who lives in Truro, admitted he was anxious as he prepared to perform his rendition of Alicia Key's 'If I Ain't Got You...'
But, were the judges won over?

Babe, you jammed up my pump
Overwhelmed with gratitude. God is good. The universe is good. X factor is good. Ahhh, love you all so much, dream come true!!!
And it wasn't Benji's vocals which impressed the judges - they had kind words for his home county of Cornwall too, with Simon Cowell saying he couldn't get a hotel room, so popular was it with tourists.
It's nice down there right?
It's gorgeous there!
