Phillip Lomax Sings His Way Into ‘X Factor’ Judges’ Hearts With ‘Fly Me to the Moon’

Phillip Lomax

Phillip Lomax, a 21-year-old waiter, performed in front of his hometown Seattle crowd on the ‘X Factor‘ and his confidence and cockiness helped him win over the audience and the judges.

Dressed in a brown Fedora hat and matching leather coat, Lomax performed the old standard ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ made popular by Frank Sinatra and others. However, Lomax’s look and delivery was more reminiscent of modern-day crooner Michael Buble.

Throughout the performance, Lomax threw in shout-outs to the Seattle crowd, earning big applause. His personality made up for his limited vocals, which made him sound more like an impersonator than an original singer.

However, all four judges liked his act, with Simon Cowell telling Lomax that his “self belief” and “great charisma” made him an interesting contestant, while Paul Abdul told him “that smile is money in your pocket.”

Lomax screamed “I love you, Seattle” as he made his way off the stage to celebrate.
