After wowing The X Factor UK judges with his rendition of Enrique Iglesias’ ‘Hero,’ hunky Charlie Martinez, currently serving in the US Air Force in the UK, revealed he had to get clearance from higher ups to audition for that ITV talent show.

Martinez tells the judges: “I actually had to get special permission from my squadron commander. I had to sing for her.”

It’s clear to see new X Factor judge Mel B was quite taken with the 19 year old.

As always, Simon Cowell made the call, saying “the girls are going to love you.”

Watch his audition below.
