Are you threatening me? Simon Cowell was left shocked after he was given a stern warning from pint-sized rapper Brain Bradley during the East coast auditions of the X Factor last night
He's surely received threats before throughout his long-spanning career as a notoriously sharp-tongued reality TV judge and producer.
But possibly not from the mouth of a 14-year-old teenager.
Last night Simon Cowell was left shocked after he was given a stern warning from pint-sized rapper Brain Bradley during the East Coast auditions of the U.S. X Factor.
Rap: But as the teenager busted into a rap it was clear to see that his threatening tone was actually part of a performance that sent the audience into a frenzy
The teen became irritated after Simon questioned him on why he deserved to be on the talent show.
'Yo yo Simon, I see you man... What is your problem man?... Are you serious? Yo, I swear on your life... if we were on the streets,' he directed at the 51-year-old Brit.
But as the teenager busted into a rap it was clear to see that his threatening tone was actually part of his performance that sent the audience into a frenzy.
Crowd pleaser: Judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul busted out some moves
As the crowd went wild for the youngster, the judges stared around in disbelief as he rapped about his mother.
'Brian honey, I am scared of you, and I am not going stare at your mother,' joked judge Nicole Scherzinger.
L.A . Reid, who has produced the likes of Kanye West, Usher and Rihanna, told Brian he had been waiting for someone like him to come into his professional life for years.
Suitably pleased: Even after being turned out by the teenager before his rhyme, Simon was also blown away
Cute: With high hopes of becoming the next big thing, Andy Silikovitz, 43, has been single all of his life
Cheer Squad: Accompanied by his mother who stood backstage with Steve Jones, he revealed to the judges that he had never had a date nor been married, but was hoping that the $5 million prize money would help him find love
Hugs: Simon motioned the middle-aged man to come over and share cuddle with Paula, who happily obliged and embraced him
Confident: Touting herself as the next Mariah Carey, who had 'successfully blown away friends and family with her karaoke abilities Clarissa 'Cashmere' Cheatham was confident
Fit: It was almost like Simon knew what was coming when he broke into a fit of laughter, along with Paula, before Clarissa's terrible performance
Blonde beauty: With her stunning looks Cari Fletcher was a shoe in from the start
Duo: With an army of fans in the audience, Teenage duo Ausem said that they believed and felt the passion in their music and performed of Christina Perri's 'Jar of Hearts'
Awkward: One half of the group, poor Emily, got singled out, with both L.A.and Nicole telling Austin that he was the better singer, and discussed the possibility of splitting the pair up
Dreamy: Simon declared 21-year-old car enthusiast Toro Wolashin as a man's dream, after she told him that she wanted to open her own car shop
No good: Both Jor-El Garcia nor Devon Tally couldn't cut it in Miami
Hunk: Handsome Brennan Hunt was the epitome of a country rock star with his big blue eyes, Southern drawl and raspy voice
Star: Jazzlyn Little brought down the house with her rendition of Mary J.Blige's 'I'm Going Down'
Applause: The performance earned her a standing ovation from the judges
