"X Factor" USA auditions continued on Sept 19, 2013 and at that time we were introduced to a very young and very nervous Stone Martin.
Stone Martin is a 14-year-old, 8th grade student from Hartsville, SC and Stone confessed that he was really nervous about his audition because he had never sang in front of so many people before. Prior to "X Factor" the only place Martin had ever performed was in his own living room for an audience of six.
Stone chose to perform "Little Things" for his "X Factor" audition and if the screaming girls in the audience were any indication, a star was born.
In my opinion Stone had a great stage presence but his vocals were a bit weak. I chalked it up to nerves because he is young and he was scared. I did see a lot of potential and once again...the girls absolutely loved him.
Here is what the "X Factor" judges thought about Stone Martin's audition.
Demi Lovato - "I think that you're so cute, you're so charming, I was looking at the audience and these little girls over here...the're dying. The're like freaking out that you looked at them and this is your first time on stage in front of them so I think that's very powerful. I think there's something special about you."
Paulina Rubio - "Stone Martin, I think that your life is about to change forever."
Kelly Rowland - "I love you. I think since you're 14 you're still getting to know your voice. We've only scratched the surface baby."
Simon Cowell - "Stone, I think you have an incredible likability about you. But I think you've also got this kind of star, glow about you. I really, really, really like you."
