Simon Cuts Off Group’s Audition, But They Win Him Back With Original Song.

In the video below, a group of 4 adorable best friends– ages 25 and 26– try their luck auditioning for X Factor. They call themselves Rak-Su, and it’s clear from the get-go they’re lovable… but are they talented enough to make the cut?

The friends say they’ve been making music together since they were kids, but just a year ago they decided to become a vocal group. Simon is clearly skeptical.

Only moments into their rendition of Justin Timberlake’s throwback jam– “Senorita”– he cuts them off. “I’m sorry, that’s not working for me. Can I hear a different song? What else have you got?”

Rak-Su comes back with an original number called “I’m Feelin’ You.” Singing a song they wrote themselves is definitely a risk… but it pays off in a major way!

They have everyone —including their fellow competitors and the host—singing the chorus and dancing along. “I’m Feelin’ You” could easily be a top hit on the radio.

All the judges say “yes” to Rak-Su, and Simon even predicts they could be one of the best groups the show’s ever seen.
