"'X Factor's' Vino Alan Excites Twitter With 'When A Man Loves A Woman' On Live Show [VIDEO]"

Vino Alan went from “zero to hero” in the words of judge Simon Cowell on Wednesday night’s episode of “The X Factor” on FOX.

Alan was criticized by Cowell, Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears on his last performance.

But this week Alan came out singing his version of “When a Man Loves a Woman” by Percy Sledge.

He wore a suit with a black beanie and his signature head tattoos peeping through.

At the end of his gritty, soulful performance, Alan said, “Love will conquer hate. East coast, I love ya.”

It was an act that the judges ate up.

Britney Spears, who typically has some of the shortest comments and criticisms for the contestants, told Vino Alan:

“I feel like your performance was really stripped, and it just really showed your vocal performance and how unique and special your voice is.”

“That was a phenomenal performance,” Demi Lovato told the vocalist.

“I was so impressed with how you poured your heart and soul onto the stage. It left me speechless even though I’m talking right now."

But not everything the youngest judge on the panel had to say was positive.

“My only concern with you, Vino, is I have a hard time seeing you as a No. 1 artist,” she told him. “I think you’re an incredible vocalist, but I’m not sure if I see you as a pop star.”

“You know what, Vino, you went from zero to hero in one week,” Cowell told the soul singer.

“Awful song last week,” he continued to tell him. “I’ve always believed you were a soul singer. You did put your heart and soul in your performance.”

Then the British judge turned to Demi Lovato to comment on her criticism:

“And you know what, Demi, that was kind of a stupid thing you just said because I have an artist called Susan Boyle who was 47-years-old and went on to sell records all over the world.”

The crowd began to go wild and Vino Alan started shaking some of his fans' hands in the audience. After Cowell had to prompt Alan to compose himself, the judge finished saying to him:

“If you have talent, you have talent,” and as a way to stick it to Demi Lovato and make her realize that Alan is commercial enough for the masses, he added, “I’m happy that your story about what you do for the troops came out… you’re a good person.”

L.A. Reid, who is Alan’s mentor on the show, was absolutely thrilled with the performance. He was swaying throughout Alan’s rendition of the song and even told him, “We nailed it” when it was time for his commentary.

Vino Alan soon became a trending topic on Twitter after the performance, and it would be a shock if he didn’t make it through the elimination round. - International Business Times

"Vino gives thanks to the troops with his performance"

To honor the Thanksgiving holiday, the theme for this week on The X Factort; was things to give thanks for. Vino Alan had tried to sign up for the military after 9/11, but was rejected because of his extensive tattoos. So he honored their service by performing for them, and he did so again on The X-Factor stage.

Vino tackled Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" which is a tricky song to tackle. In the wrong hands, it can come across as way too over the top, but most critics felt that Vino handled it masterfully. The judges were certainly on board, giving him a standing ovation. Demi Lovato even said she'd been wrong about him, referring to her criticism about failing to see him as a star.

CarterMatt said it 'felt more genuine and heartfelt than the original,' while Celebuzz suggested the song choice could catapult Vino into the lead. - Huffington Post TV

"'The X Factor': Is Vino Alan Too Tough For The Show? (VIDEO)"

The X Factor; wrapped the Judges Houses round by showing the performances from the Teens category and the Over-25s. L.A. Reid made it very clear that he wasn't happy to have the Over-25s, and went so far as to tell them that he wasn't all that excited about them. So the pressure was on for this group more than ever, especially because many of them feel this is their last opportunity at superstardom.

Vino Alan, at 40-years-old, is the oldest contestant in the competition. He blew the judges away with his vocal performance, covering P!nk's Sober, but the judges were slightly worried about his appearance. Vino is one tough looking dude, but his gruff exterior hides a sensitive and soaring voice.

That emotion he brings to his performance comes in part from his troubled childhood. He opened up about coming from an abusive home. "When I was a kid, my mom married an abusive man," he said. "You know, I was physically tortured and mentally tortured. But the biggest torture of all was having her beat nightly."

Critics were blown away by Vino's voice, with PopCrush saying he "totally owned" the song. But TV Fanatic was worried voters might be turned off by his tough exterior. - Huffington Post TV

Bio

Life began long before Season 2 of X-Factor USA for ViNO ALaN. Yet this Reality TV Show catapulted ViNO’s undeniable vocal abilities to millions worldwide.

The world was introduced to an unlikely soulful and smooth voice from a tattooed man who has always been misunderstood. Snookie herself tweeted about ViNO “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, which then became the show’s token description of him. He shocked the masses when belting out his a’cappella version of Ray LaMontagne’s “Trouble”. He instantly obtained new fans, adding to his already proud and loyal family, friends and life long followers.

Holding the number three spot week after week, gained him the reputation of a musical inspiration to thousands. His soulful sounds caused a tidal wave of support from the California shores - throughout the U.S.A, Canada, Brazil, New Zealand, Europe, even reaching Portugal and the furthest inlands of Africa.
V-Nation supporters are still on the rise!

ViNO entered 2013 with the goal to not disappoint his global V-Nation fans, while still holding true to the musical integrity. His legendary voice led him to share the stage and sing along side his all-time biggest musical influence, Stevie Wonder. Stevie surprised ViNO when, on live television, he announced "I heard your voice & already wrote a song for you." Hoping to one day work along side his idol, ViNO continues his desire to release music that holds true to his artistic vision.

ViNO continues to pursue all of his passions. His unwavering support of the US Military was first noted on the show when he dedicated “God Bless the USA” the US Troops. He always has and always will, continue to inspire and boost morals by performing for the troops in honor of what they sacrifice for our freedom. He supports numerous charities and is even in the beginning planning stages of his goal to open a non-profit organization, Y.E.S. (Youth Expression Studios) to bring the Arts to today’s youth.

ViNO continues the next phase of his musical journey as a renowned Indie Artist. He released his first infectious single ‘My Summer’ on May 21, 2013 and has followed up with the tear-jerking dedication to female troops, “Baby’s Room’ and the darker expressionism piece ‘At Your Funeral’. ViNO continues his undying dedication to his craft, by non-stop performing, rehearsing, writing and recording his debut album ‘Painting Sunshine: due out 2014.
