Carlito Olivero Wowed the X Factor USA Judges; Simon Said: “This Kid Looks Like a Real Star”; Gets Standing Ovation from Audience

Latino Carlito Olivero wowed the X Factor USA Season 3 Judges, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, Paulina Rubio and Simon Cowell, to earn a standing ovation during auditions in LA.

Carlito Olivero, 23, from Barista, Los Angeles, California, works in a coffee shop. He sang “Stay” by Rihanna beautifully that everyone was impressed. His voice had a unique, wonderful tremor that made the judges love him.


He was also an excellent performer, entertaining the audience like a pro. The audience eventually stood up for him and accorded him a thunderous applause.

Simon Cowell was enthusiastic:

“I actually like everything about you. I like your voice. I like your charisma. I think you’re really good.  There’s no one around like you at the moment. I just saw you from the side profile. I look at you there, and I think, this kid looks like a real star.”

Demi Lovato commented:

“Your voice actually reminds me of a cross between Frankie J. and Trey Songz.”

Paulina Rubio was awed:

“Carlito, I adore you.”

Kelly Rowland was positive:

“We’re witnessing a star, Carlito. It’s an absolute yes!”

Simon followed it up:

“This is a very, very easy yes. Congratulations.”

All of the four judges said “Yes.”
