X Factor: Another Standout Was…

| Filed under: X Factor

And here come the Adam Lambert comparisons!

Aiden Grimshaw took on the Tears For Fears classic Mad World on X Factor Saturday night.

But, he really made this song his own!

It was almost a creepy take on the song!

Definitely captivating!

Aiden has something very special about his voice!

We have to agree, though, that he needs to work on being less introverted - but this song suits him quite well.

Check it out (above)!

    "Made it his own??????" This is a straight rip-off of Gary Jules' version who sang it INFINITELY better. This was as bad as a Travis Garland performance!

  2. 2

    He doesn't even compare to Adam

  3. 3

    I like

  4. 4

    Please stop judging contestants singing, you're not a judge on the X Factor, and we all know you want to be it, but since when did you know ANYTHING about the music industry? Leave it to the judges of XFACTOR, not you. Perez.

    adam lambert's version was way better.
    but i kinda like him too

  6. 6

    He Is Really Good All Of Them Where Last Night And For People Who Are Going On About This American Winner This Is The UK! Ok!!!!!

  7. 7

    This guy is cuter than Adam Lambert. WAAAAY cuter! I wanna smooch on him all night OM NOM NOM!!! :P

  8. 8

    Adam Lambert he is NOT…I take it you didn't see how he butchered Michael Jackson's Man in the Mirror during bootcamp.

  9. 9

    This guy isn't bad by any means, but really? Que the Lambert comparisons? Hardly. Not even close.

  10. 10

    Reminds me of R.E.M., a little freaky but intriguing…..

    Millions of people check out your site everyday and only 5ish people decided to comment on this posting. Mostly negative. take a hint already. Too bad I know you won't read this, cause you just don't give a sh*t anymore. sad. sucks, cause I used to love it here.

  12. 12

    He comes NOWHERE close to being in the same league with adam. Adams vocal and performance of this song was spot on & delivered with a confidence that is second to no one.

  13. 13

    i am in love with him, hes amazing, and that performance was sooo much better than adam lamberts, sorryyyyy! x

  14. 14

    aiden was awesome last night - but dont compare to adam lambert please - two very different performers!

  15. 15

    I like the kid but no this is too theatrical, the bruding in pain eyes just don't cut it :/

  16. 16

    I thought he was amazing and we haven't hardly heard of adam lambert here in uk so he doesn't need that comparison

  17. 17

    Ummm, no sweetie. His version compared to TFF. He's good, but Adam made that song his own!

  18. 18

    He is so cute :)

  19. 19

    omg the xfactor isnt even in america yet and I already hate it…just another thing Perez has ruined in his desperate quest for fame and glory.

  20. 20

    Oh dear, no one sings it like Tears for Fears, the best group of the 80's and beyond. This was just a rip off of Gary Jules, who also massacred it. Crap!

    Yeah no. It was a good effort, but his voice is thin and insubstantial. Haven't watched Lambert's recently, but still remember the chills I got from his performance. Especially that moment when he stood up from the chair and his voice went from all quietly emotional to soaring. LOL kinda similar to how this guy stood up from the chair, except HIS voice just fell flat. Ah well. He's cute though. Although the crazy eyes are a bit offputting.

  22. 22

    Are the judges on crack? This guy and Cher were terrible.

  23. 23


  24. 24

    I'm sorry, there is NO comparison to Adam! That was really not very good in my opinion.

  25. 25

    He was okay, but Adam's version was WAYYYYYYYYY better.

  26. 26

    I love Aiden. Think he is so sweet and he has an amazing voice. Could do with working on his confidence though, but I'm sure that will come with time. :)

  27. 27

    Eh… it was just okay in my opinion. Aiden's voice is nowhere near comparable to Adam Lambert's, who should have won AI in the US. Where is Kris Allen anyway? Rock on Adam!

  28. 28

    I guess I'm in the minority by thinking this was terrible. I can sing better than this guy, and that's really not saying much.

  29. 29

    The song itself is the "star" but this guy did no better than a mediocre karaoke rendition.

  30. 30

    Ok…If by captivating you mean extremely awkward, an definitely creepy in a bad karaoke way.

  31. 31

    So, where's the Adam comparison? Is he gay?

  32. 32

    Re: LadyPaul56 – You got that part right. This song, on it's own, is a stunner. Most definitely one of my favorites. However, if we had to choose between Aiden and Adam, I would have to go with Adam. Aiden, as Simon put it so succinctly, has the whole Robert Pattinson Twilight thing going on. But I'll never forget the night Adam let this one fly - he absolutely stopped the world on it's axis.

  33. 33

    fuck adam lambert. he blatantly ripped off gary jules when he did this version of the song. gary jules gets no credit for his innovation

  34. 6one9 says – reply to this


    Don't even compare Adam to this dude!! Adam did this song ““` way better!! YO!

  35. 35

    looks like hes wearing a straight jacket and his style of singing was a carbon copy of gary jules but nowhere near as good

  36. 36

    Not even close to Adam's version. It was okay. Adam was sensational!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. 37

    Adam was a milliong times better I dont even like this guy.

  38. 38

    why the fuck would some one on a UK talent show give a shit whether he sounds a bit like some american idol reject that no-one over here has heard of? well, except for perez's infatuation with him.

  39. 39

    He is so cute!

  40. 40

    Re: JLOM17 – Agreed

  41. 41

    he did NOT make it his own. that was gary jule's version of mad world and he sings it waaaay better. he's just a copy-cat

  42. 42

    Total rip off. Gary Jules, Donnie Darko. Otherwise well done by a young kid.

  43. 43

    This was crap.

  44. 44

    well, Aiden copied the set, lighting, and drama of Adam Lambert's version.
    really, Aiden copied everything… except he added a crazy psycho glare throughout the performance.
    Simon gave Adam a standing O so I think we know who's is better :)

  45. 45

    Have people gone completely effin deaf?? That was god-awful. Seriously; that was the weirdest accent ever and he was sooo off key and his voice was wobbly and weak. C'mon.

  46. 46

    he has a nice voice…but it's shakey and that bothers me. :/

  47. 47

    he tried so hard to have the look of the adam lambert performance but his vocal is so lacking. adam lambert he is most definitetly not.

  48. 48

    Re: dnredsox – I agree.

  49. 49

    i love aiden too much

  50. 50

    That. Was. Horrible.

  51. 51

    This kid is so freakin scary it isn't funny!! Totally ruined the song for me!! I swear he made the hair on the back of my arms stand straight up he looks like a serial killer!!! Not to mention how off key and horrible he sounded!! Man if that's the best this show has to offer please cancel it and put it out of it's misery! That was just plain awful!!!

  52. 52

    Amazing. Hot. And waaaaay better then Adam's performance. end of.

  53. 53

    aiden and lamberts performances were completely different
    LAMBERT: soft, clean, but powerful
    AIDEN: has a certain character in his voice thats different, but not as powerful as lambert
    personally, i prefer aiden, he's different and yeah lambert can rock any song and aiden cant but aiden has a different sounding voice and is kinda hypnotic!
