Willie Jones auditioned for The X Factor
season 2 singing "Your Man” by Josh Turner and subsequently impressed the judges
. Judge Simon Cowell
, who gave Jones a “ginormous, big, fat YES,” also praised him for his “sensational recording voice.” Jones survived the boot camp
and made it to the live show as part of the top 16. He's part of Demi Lovato's young adults team.
During the first live show
Willie Jones sang "Here for the Party" by Gretchen Wilson. Unfortunately the next night he had to perform against CeCe Frey
to be saved from elimination.
The country singer performed
"You Don't Know Me" and was eliminated.
