54 Million Have Watched This Timid 16-Yr-Old’s Epic Michael Jackson Audition.

There are few emotions more powerful than a first crush. Teen singer Luke Lucas was just 16 years old when he got a chance to perform for his biggest crush ever, a judge on “The X Factor.”

Luke Lucas of Kent, England, confessed in his pre-show interview that he had a massive crush on celebrity judge Tulisa. The adorable teenager was not shy about telling the world that he thinks the English beauty is “gorgeous,” and as soon as he got on stage his face turned bright pink as he said hello to her for the first time.


Tulisa seemed delighted by his compliments and returned the favor by giving him a chaste kiss on the cheek… but the young man wasn’t done attempting to woo her yet!


Luke picked a pretty big song to take on – “Who’s Loving You” by Michael Jackson, but the moment he opened his mouth to sing, everyone (including Tulisa) was shocked by his natural talent.


The best part of the performance is that Luke seems to have a big personality to match his voice! He strutted around the stage while singing the bluesy song, seeming to dedicate the romantic lyrics to his crush, Tulisa.


Tulisa even pretended to swoon during the song and needed to be fanned by fellow judge Kelly Rowland.

At the end of Luke’s audition, he received kind words and a resounding “yes” vote from all four judges.


“You are going to woo the ladies in this competition,” Tulisa told him. Judge Gary Barlow then said, “You don’t learn to sing like that, you’re born to sing like that.”

Check out Luke’s memorable performance below, and be sure to share this video with a music lover who remembers their first crush!
