Magherafelt barman Niall Sexton wowed the judges on the X Factor and booked his place in the next round.
The 22-year-old performed Sarah Bareilles’ Gravity last night and was described by Simon Cowell as a “class act”.
His audition was held earlier this year in front of Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh.
Nicole said: “I felt every single word from you and I just love you.”
Niall was watched by proud mum Lee and siblings as well as the show host, Dermot O’Leary.
