The juror cut off the 12-year-old in the middle of the song. At 1:58 he fought back the tears, raised the microphone and blew everyone away!

In 2009, 12-year-old Shaheen Jafargholi competed in the British casting show „Britain’s Got Talent.“ When he started into the song „Valerie“ by Amy Winehouse, he was abruptly interrupted by the famously grumpy Simon Cowell: „You got this really wrong.

What do you sing apart from that?“ he asked. The audience — including the boy’s proud mother — was shocked and Shaheen’s eyes began to tear up. But when Simon gave the young showman his second chance, he didn’t waste it…

What an amazing rendition of Michael Jackson’s „Who’s lovin you“! At first it seemed like Simon Cowell was being mean to the boy, but actually he did him a favor. Shaheen was obviously born to sing this song and the standing ovation he received at the end only confirms it. Well done, Shaheen!
