As auditions for The X-Factor wind down, judges Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio saw impressive young voices and one marriage proposal.

Wesley Mountain, a 19-year-old crooner, impressed the judges with “Wanted” by Hunter Hayes – even though he spent a good chunk of his audition flirting with Rowland. He was so star struck by seeing her that he couldn’t take his eyes off her the entire performance. Simon compared him to a dog looking at a steak, but gave him a ‘yes’ anyways.

“Just take a very long cold shower before you sing,” Cowell told Mountain.

Other young singers who made it through include 15-year-old Khaya Cohen, who was stopped mid-performance and asked to change songs by the judges, and the also Emery Kelley.

Lovato was taken with all the girls in the auditions, and declared she was ready to fight to mentor them.

All the judges might be clamoring for the Over 25 category after seeing James Kenney, 35, audition with “Summertime” – Demi called his performance ‘sexy.’

Kenney, who had auditioned for Season 1 two years ago, showed up with his wife and two little girls (dressed in identical pink dresses) and made it past auditions easily.

Another Over 25-er who impressed the judges was 35-year-old professional women’s football player Lorie Moore. Moore auditioned for judges Kelly and Simon with Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing.”

Moore quickly won over the audience and judges, earning a big round of applause and moving past the first audition round.

But, the sweetest moment of the night has to go to David Grey and Lauren Waguespack, a couple who auditioned together, got ‘No’s together, but left the X Factor a newly engaged couple.

David walked up on stage and immediately blurted out that he was only auditioning to support his girlfriend, doing nothing to impress the judges – neither did his singing for that matter.

The last episode of X-Factor auditions airs Thursday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
