BGT SECOND CHANCE SIMON COWELL (1)

Singer Jacob Jones had quite the audition on BGT last year. Not only did judge Simon Cowell stop him in the middle of his song, but he ended up calling his girlfriend onto the stage to ask her a very important question.


Since Jacob says his girlfriend was the one who pushed him to audition for the show in the first place, the moment carries even more meaning. Check out Jacob’s performance in the video below.

Singer Gets Stopped By Simon On ‘BGT’

Jacob started off his audition by saying his girlfriend Faye had signed him up for the show without him even knowing. He shared that he wasn’t “confident” enough to sing for a large group of people.

The 27-year-old singer explained that he would be singing “You Are So Beautiful” in honor of his girlfriend, with whom he has a daughter. The audience seemed to be enjoying the performance, but Simon ended up stopping him mid-song.

Simon said he sounded like he was trying to impersonate Joe Cocker with the rasp in his voice, and encouraged him to sing again without the music, showing his true voice. Jacob agreed, and he ended up getting four “yes” votes from the BGT judges.

It’s far from the first time Simon has interrupted a contestant’s audition. It frequently leads to boos from the audience, and is certainly a stressful moment for the contestant, but it usually leads to great second-chance performances.

Singer Jacob Jones Proposes To His Girlfriend

“I just wanted to do one thing,” Jacob told the judges. “Before I came today, if I got four yesses, there was another yes that I wanted to get.” The audience immediately got excited, predicting that he would propose to his girlfriend.

And that’s exactly what happened. He asked Faye to join him on stage. “I love you literally more than anything,” Jacob told her. “And I’m so happy that you believe in me, and that you did this for me, and I wanted to ask you something.”

As Faye teared up, Jacob got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She said yes immediately, and her hands were shaking so much it was hard to get the ring on her finger.

The judges and the audience gave the pair a standing ovation, while hosts Ant and Dec cheered from just off stage. Jacob ended up making it to the semifinals.
