Man Sings Aerosmith’s ‘Walk This Way’ on ‘The X Factor,’ Crowd Not Amused [Watch]
‘Walk This Way’ is not only one of Aerosmith‘s biggest songs, but one that transcended music and is a household anthem. Singing this auditioning on ‘The X Factor’ should have any crowd up on their feet and cheering, but Rusty Chaos defies the odds and stuns the crowd into an awkward silence.
The music comes on and everyone gets ready for a fist-pumping performance. Instead, everyone is severely underwhelmed with the bad-by-karaoke-standards butchering of a classic. Rusty Chaos has the moves and the wardrobe, but he forgot the first rule: don’t fake it before you make it. The crowd just stares with an empty gaze, mouths closed and arms crossed. Watch the video to see infamous judge Simon Cowell’s reaction.
