Prepare to scream, female readers.

Stone Martin, a 14-year old hopeful who auditioned for The X Factor last night, made the most of his time on stage by covering the One Direction hit "Little Things."

The ballad was especially adored by Simon Cowell, who put together the beloved boy group in England and who responded to Martin’s rendition with three words: "Wow, wow, wow."

Demi Lovato was also a fan of the "powerful" connection" Martin made with the audience, adding: I think that you’re so cute. You’re so charming."

Stone is off to Round 2 and you can check out his impressive pipes now:
