Nervous X Factor hopeful Christopher Maloney wows the judges
It only took him five years to make the auditions...
He told ITV: 'I've downloaded the application form, filled it out, put it in an envelope and ripped it up every year'.
'I've always wanted to sing but people have discouraged me and said that, you know, you're not good enough'.
'They have really knocked my confidence, they've discouraged me from applying, in my head I just think I'm not good enough and that's what has stopped me from doing it'.
Christopher was joined at the auditions by his grandmother, which was fitting as he performed Bette Midler's The Rose, a song played at his grandfather's funeral.
Maloney was overwhelmed by the audience reaction to his voice, the judges were in awe.
Gary Barlow said: 'How the hell have you kept that voice hidden until now?'
Louis Walsh added: 'You stole the show today.'
Christopher, the five years paid off!
