Shortly after Kameron began to sing, Cowell stopped the act, urging Ross to sing acapella. “I’d like you to do something for us. I want you to sing acapella and I want you to prove the point you’ve been wanting to prove,” Simon told Kameron.
The auditionee stunned the judges with a more relaxed rendition of the song, focusing on his vocals rather than the odd pace of the backing track. It is unknown if Ross will make it to the next round.
