When Christopher Maloney walked onstage for his X Factor Audition in 2012, he was nervous beyond words. You can actually see how bad he is shaking due to a severe case of stage fright. He says that people have been very discouraging and it left him with little to no self-confidence. But because of the constant support of his nana, he has been able to lift himself up and come this far.

He sang “The Rose” by Bette Midler. Nobody in the audience was probably expecting to hear something so amazing come out of such a nervy person, but they all received a pleasant surprise. His performance is even more emotional due to his story! Chris reached was a finalist and he grabbed the third spot. You are going to be moved when you see this performance!
