“X Factor UK” contender Che Chesterman’s sixth live show stage impressed most of the judges, with Nick Grimshaw and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini visibly emotional over the singer’s performance.

Two of the four “X Factor UK” judges were brought to tears over Chesterman’s rendition of the late singer Amy Winehouse’s “Love Is A Losing Game,” according to Huffington Post. The sixth live show of the reality singing competition held Saturday, Dec. 5, had “X Factor UK” judges Grimshaw and Fernandez-Versini in tears after the aspiring singer’s performance.

Fernandez-Versini applauded Chesterman and commented on how Winehouse would have loved the aspiring singer’s cover. “Not only did the whole nation fall in love with that song, the whole world fell in love with the song...,” she said during Saturday’s live show. “I think Amy would've loved that rendition. It was fantastic."

Chesterman’s mentor Grimshaw was also emotional over the singer’s rendition. The “X Factor UK” judge and Radio 1 DJ, who was a close friend of Winehouse prior her death, complimented Chesterman and found the performance “really, really spectacular.” Chesterman even jumped off the stage to give Grimshaw a hug given his mentor’s reaction during Saturday’s live show.

Despite Chesterman’s touching rendition, “X Factor UK” showrunner Simon Cowell was not as impressed as the other judges. He described Chesterman’s rendition as “ordinary” and mentioned that it didn’t live up to the original version.

Meanwhile, the aspiring singer’s sixth live stage was a huge departure from the fifth live show of “X Factor UK” where he forgot the lyrics to Adele’s hit “Hello.” Chesterman even improvised some of the lyrics during his jukebox performance held Saturday, Nov. 28. Fortunately, he was able to recover during the song’s chorus.

The “X Factor UK” contender also landed at the bottom two list, along with Lauren Murray, during “X Factor UK’s” sixth live decider show on Sunday, Dec. 6, according to ITV. However, it was Chesterman who made it to the show’s final round, after a judges’ deadlock vote saw Murray’s departure from the competition. Apart from Chesterman, Reggie ‘N’ Bollie and Louisa Johnson made it to the top three list.

The “X Factor UK” finals will air on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 12-13, in the UK on ITV.
