I can’t help falling in love with this awful X Factor New Zealand audition

An X Factor New Zealand auditioner delivered a horrific and hilarious performance that may not be worst audition ever on a signing competition, as some suggest, but it is quite memorable.

Because supermarket employee Mitchell Wahl’s pre-audition interview comes across like an obvious put-on, I was expecting a Susan Boyle moment, though in reverse.

You must just watch the audition, but I will preface it with this: Nothing prepared me for what would actually come out of his mouth when he started to sing Elvis Presley’s “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You.” I think I want it as my ringtone.
