Jason Brock in "New York State of Mind" on The X Factor

Jason Brock talked a very good game on The X Factor last night, nervously chatting up the judges for a long time before actually singing a note.

The self-described "nerd herder" was easy to mock as a result... until he got going on "New York State of Mind" and proved he croons and even better game than he talks.

Showing unexpected strength and range, Brock was likely the most impressive contestant on a lackluster premiere follow-up. Take a look and a listen to his audition now:

Where do you rank Brock when compared to talented acts from Wednesday night, such as Jillian Jensen?
