OK, first a confession. Normally the thought of blogging about an X-Factor clip - never mind watching it - would make me feel slightly nauseous.
But then I came across this clip of Aussie X-Factor wannabe Emmanuel Kelly's audition.
Now, I not usually one to be taken in by the sad tales the TV talentless show usually trots out, but even I found myself getting a little bit emotional after watching this clip.
So just who is he? Well, when they were very young, Emmanuel and his brother Ahmed were found huddled in a discarded shoe box by nuns in an Iraqi park and taken to an orphanage.
Both were suffering from limb deficiencies as a result of chemical warfare, and neither had any birth certificates or notes with them.
However, an Australian woman adopted the pair and gave them bright new lives Down Under.
Fast forward to 2011, and his adopted mum and brother were backstage to watch Emmanuel do his best to impress the X-Factor judges.
And, well, he did more than that - his rendition of John Lennon's Imagine bringing the house down and leaving one or two of the panel in tears.
