The music practice student got a yes from all four judges and received a standing ovation from David Walliams and Amanda Holden.

Alex, 20, from Chester, said: “I’ve been singing since I was about 7 years old and entering talent competitions since I was 10.

“It was very surreal going for the Britain’s Got Talent audition but I just thought I’ve been working for years to get here and I’m just going to go for it. I was really keen on impressing Simon as he is such a massive influence in the music industry.

“Life has been crazy since my audition was broadcast on TV - my Twitter and Facebook has gone mad and people have been so nice. I was also on This Morning which was unreal being interviewed by Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield but they were both really friendly.

“Studying the BTEC Extended Diploma in Music Practice course at West Cheshire College has really helped me- I’ve developed a stronger knowledge if music and it’s definitely increased my confidence.

“My ultimate goal is for my music to be heard across the world and for people to respect my music. My inspirations are Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Beyonce.”

Martin Holmes, Music Tutor from West Cheshire College, who has taught Alex, said: “I am thrilled that Alex has done so well in the auditions.

“He has an amazing talent and I have seen such an improvement from him since he joined the College.

“He deserves to do really well and I know everyone from the College and the local area will be supporting him all the way. We all hope he will take the Britain’s Got Talent crown!”

West Cheshire College offers a range of music courses including music practice, musical technology and managing a music business enterprise.
