Mel tells him not to sing in a Jamaican accent again but loves how unique he is and calls him ‘bloody great’. Guy tells him he’s got the goods and is his favourite male in the competition.

    I had never known there was an acoustic version of Billie Jean until this episode. Hayden’s rendition of the song was amazing.

    So much amazing raw talent, loving the show, great to see that an ordinary person has the opportunity to shine and not just professionals as in other shows. The judges are doing an excellent job, and Mel B is terrific and honest, hope she keeps doing X Factor.
