Every once in a while, we discover young talents appearing in reality competitions showing what it takes to be in the industry. The likes of Kelly Clarkson, Katharine McPhee, and Carrie Underwood have proven that a nobody can be the next big thing in the music world.
Just recently, a 15-year-old schoolboy from Portsmouth Grammar School stunned everyone with his mind-blowing rendition of Billy Joel’s “She’s Always a Woman.” Isaac Waddington didn’t fail to impress the judges and the audience of Britain’s Got Talent with his soulful performance of the 70’s hit.
Even the notorious judge Simon Cowell was convinced that the young singer and pianist absolutely nailed the song. Cowell believes they’ve found “someone truly special” after seeing Waddington perform.
Of course, the young lad earned the nod of four judges and will go through the next round of the reality talent search.
According to Waddington, he plans to perform his original work in the next round.
“I’m either going to polish up one of my own songs and sing that, and that will be really good because I can show people what I do. But if not it’ll be another cover,” Waddington revealed.
At the age of 7, Waddington began showing interesting in playing the piano as well as singing.
