24-year-old Seann Miley Moore has travelled pretty darn far for this year’s X Factor series, buying a one-way ticket from Australia.
His debut performance – Queen’s The Show Must Go On – had Rita Ora in tears, and the judges quickly marked him out as a favourite in this year’s competition.
At Boot Camp it was hard to tear your eyes away from Seann as his group performed The Eagles’ Hotel California.
For his second solo performance Seann dazzled with a highly-emotional cover of Donny Hathaway’s A Song For You.
At Six Chair Challenge there was barely any doubt about Seann getting a seat, playing up to his fellow competitors during his rendition of Shirley Bassey’s I (Who Have Nothing):
At Judges’ Houses in the Cotswolds, Seann admitted his song choice reminded him of his mum back home, his emotions clear to see as he sung.
And when it came to decision time, Boys category mentor Nick Grimshaw awarded Seann a seat alongside Ché Chesterman and Mason Noise.
The X Factor live shows kick off on Saturday 31st October at 8pm on ITV
