After nine seasons of 'American Idol,' three seasons of the U.S. 'X Factor' and 11 seasons of the U.K. 'X Factor,' fans get to watch the tough Simon Cowell get emotional over a performance. Watch video.
'X-Factor' Judge Simon Cowell is popular for everything on show, but getting emotional isn't one of them.
On August 30, 2015, the judge showed a different side of him when Josh Daniels, a 21-year-old contestant and car mechanic from Manchester, England, took the stage to audition with Labrinth’s “Jealous.”
According to Daniel, his performance and song is dedicated to his best friend who passed away at the age of 18.
During his performance, the three judges got emotional with Cowell wiping the tears from his eyes.

Surprisingly too, the emotional Cowell couldn’t bring himself together to comment on Daniel’s performance, as he just gave his 'yes.'
Backstage, Cowell was seen upset and speechless. His reaction left his fellow judges Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Nick Grimshaw at a loss for what to do.
