Simon Cowell found it "difficult" watching himself tear up on television. The X Factor judge was left with tears in his eyes when Josh Daniel's performance of Jealous reminded him of his mother Julie, who had passed away only days before the audition. He explained: "When I watched it on the show, it was very difficult to watch back, but that's just what happens when you make one of these shows. Of course, it brought it all back. "It is a very difficult to know what to do. The contestant didn't know the situation. He wasn't doing it to make me upset. He sang the song for his own reasons. It was important that he did a good audition. But it was very raw and it did take me back to the moment, but I think in quite a healthy way. Being upset is a human thing."
