In his spare time, 18-year-old Curtis Golden plays computer games, reads comics and collects figurines of superheroes. He describes himself as the “stereotypical nerd.” Spurred by his sisters, he also became a huge Spice Girls fan, which is why he was probably all the more nervous to audition for X-Factor UK in front of band member Mel B.
Unfortunately, Mel B branded his unexpected, countrified performance of Christina Aguilera’s “Candyman” as “annoying and irritating.” His Spice Girls memorabilia wasn’t enough to win Mel B over but his unique performance was enough to get me.
According to Metro UK, the contestant was too shy to audition in previous years but finally decided to go for it after surviving a serious car accident. He told them that after something like that happens, “you kind of stop giving a c**p.”
Watch below to see if he ended up getting through.
