Watch: Cornwall teenager battles nerves as he faces the X Factor judges

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?

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!

– Simon Cowell, Sharon Osborne
