“Give Phillip Lomax this: the 21-year old from Seattle has unique style. And a large set of testicles. This X Factor contestant didn't merely audition last night with Rihanna's hit "Please Don't Stop the Music." He did so in front of Rihanna herself, who was a guest on the show and at LA Reid's house. Lomax put his own spin on the dance track, making it sound more like Frank Sinatra and the sultry pop artist who made the single famous. It was an impressive performance ”

“Seriously! Who expected THAT VOICE to come out of him! On last night's episode of X Factor, a young man named Phillip Lomax showed up to the Seattle round of auditions, and blew us out of the water with his performance of Fly Me To The Moon by Frank Sinatra”

“Millions had a chance to watch Seattle waiter Phillip Lomax strut his stuff last night on the X Factor, doing a Frank Sinatra impersonation with a hat to match. Thanks to his 1000-watt smile and enough confidence to light the Space Needle at night, Simon Cowell and company were convinced that X marked the spot”
