Jack Osbourne reportedly fooled X Factor judges Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell by posing as a gothic Christian rapper and auditioning for the ITV1 talent show.
The 19-year-old donned a long wig, black eyeliner and a drawn on beard for the stunt, the Daily Mirror alleges.
The paper claims that the son of the show's third judge, Sharon Osbourne, let his mum in on his plans to dupe the music moguls.
Jack, who called himself Trevor Alright for the audition, reportedly boasts to Louis and Simon that he's a "Jedi of music".
The star then performs a bad rendition of Vanilla Ice's rap Ice Ice Baby, before removing his wig and revealing his true identity to the judges.
The comic episode will reportedly be shown on tonight's Xtra Factor, the behind-the-scenes spin-off from the favourite Saturday night show, presented by Ben Shepherd.
But if Louis and Simon thought Jack's holy rap was less than harmonious then they should prepare themselves for the release of the debut album from last year's X Factor finalist Rowetta.
The runner-up has bizarrely decided to cover an Oasis song after becoming friends with the band while touring with the Happy Mondays in 2000.
"I've done an Oasis song because I'm from Manchester and I love Stop Crying Your Heart Out," Rowetta is quoted as saying by ITV news.
Let's hope Noel and Liam won't be crying their hearts out when they hear what Rowetta has done to their classic track!
