Sneaky Girlfriend Signs Him Up For Audition, But He Stuns Judges With Oldies Hit.

There’s something so special about oldies music. The tunes just make you feel good, tap your feet, and sing along.

While plenty of songs nowadays are catchy, oldies call to mind a simpler time, without smartphones and jam-packed calendars. Sam Black is just 27 and when he walked out to audition for the judges of “The X Factor UK,” they probably never saw his song choice coming.


Wearing skinny jeans, a leather jacket, and a flimsy t-shirt, he didn’t look like a typical oldies fan – but he surprised them all with Dion DiMucci’s “Runaround Sue.”


As soon as he began singing, the judges were clearly impressed.


He even worked in some adorable toe-tapping choreography that matched with the cheerful, old-timey song.

When all was said and done, Sam got four yeses and tons of encouragement from the judges. Nicole even said he was a “star.”


And fans online agree saying he was a “class act,” one person even said that Sam reminded them of Elvis!


Watch Sam’s performance below and we dare you: Just try not to bop along with his upbeat voice – it definitely brings us back.
