Who Is Willie Jones? X Factor 2012 Finalist Background Info

Full name: Willie Jones, III
Age: 17
Hometown: Shreveport, LA
Audition Song: “Your Man” by Josh Turner

The same well-mannered kid that Demi Lovato praised for having awesome “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” style, is the same kid who opened his mouth and hit some crazy-low country notes. The crowd was blown away — and so were the judges. Even hard-nosed Simon Cowell gave Willie a “ginormous, big, fat YES.”

Willie’s had plenty of time to work on his signature hybrid-country style. He says, “There’s nothing to do in Shreveport — except the mall.” Bless his family for enduring the 14-hour drive from Shreveport to Greensboro, NC so that we could hear what Simon has dubbed his “sensational recording voice.”
