Freddie Combs, 41, on Thursday delivered one of the most shocking performances in the history of Fox's "The X Factor" after he had to literally be wheeled out onto the stage by his wife Kay Combs because he is too heavy to walk. Through diet and exercise, Combs achieved a massive weight loss of pounds before appearing at "The X Factor" audition in Greensboro, N. She started caring for me right after we got married in '96, and as my weight rose, more things were required of her -- and she is the closest thing to an angel and a saint that I know," Combs said in his preinterview. He later told his wife, "Don't be disappointed if I don't make it. Combs told the show's producers that nobody heard his music when he was bedridden, but he wanted to make it so that those who were in a similar situation could be inspired. The judges were impressed with Combs' voice, but they weren't going to let him on the show without making a deal with the singer. Simon Cowell began the critiquing by telling him he envisioned Combs singing the song while standing and that if he let Combs on the show, then the singer had to promise he would work hard so that he could stand on "The X Factor" stage and sing the song.
The final "X Factor" auditions of Season 2 had their expected share of "pink glitter" fetish who showed up wearing what looked like Britney Spears's old of you standing while singing that song--healthy, happy," Simon said.

‘X Factor’ Final Auditions: 540-Pound Freddie Combs Wows, Vows To Get Healthy
The final "X Factor" auditions of Season 2 had their expected share of comedy--a tween boy getting jiggy to an age-inappropriate LMFAO cover, a pigtailed girl with a "pink glitter" fetish who showed up wearing what looked like Britney Spears's old "Hit Me Baby" costume, and at least one cold Cowell critique that involved a comparison to dying cats. But the standout singer of Thursday's episode was one with a sad but ultimately inspirational story, year-old minister Freddie Combs. Freddie, weighing in at pounds, was wheeled onto the stage by his loyal "angel" wife and caretaker of 16 years, Kay--and while his arrival amid the show's usual shorts-shorted teen girls and Bieber-haired boys was a shock at first, when he revealed that he used to weigh pounds, and that he almost died in , the judges and crowd were totally on his side. While Freddie's performance of "Wind Beneath My Wings" dedicated to his wife, who once cutely dueted with him on the TLC show "Heavily Ever After" wasn't necessarily hip or current or cool, there was no denying the power of his vocals--or the emotion behind them.
