The X Factor 2014 - Charlie Jones

14-year-old Charlie Jones makes his way to the X Factor 2014 arena auditions on this evening’s show, and we know that Cheryl isn’t always a fan of the younger contestants. As she has already said, she doesn’t understand why they have to rush into it, and can’t wait a couple more years.

Well, we have a feeling that Charlie Jones may well make her understand that the younger contestants can be just as song as the older ones on this evening’s show, as he comes armed with a pretty special rendition of a certain pop song.
