BRITAIN'S Got Talent hopeful Cormac Thompson released an album on a major label two years before auditioning in front of the TV judges.
Last night viewers watched the 13-year-old Lancashire choral singer impress with a cover track that appears on his record.
He put his stamp on Snow Patrol's song Run, receiving four yeses.
Amanda Holden said his voice was "pure and angelic", while Alesha Dixon called it "heavenly".
Cormac said of his audition: "Taking part in BGT was an incredible experience. When I walked out on to the stage and saw Simon, Amanda, Alesha and David it was very scary but we had a little chat and I felt a bit better.
"The audience were brilliant, when they cheered as I started singing, I knew it would be OK. A huge thank you to Britain’s Got Talent for giving me the chance to sing on such a great stage."

The young singer was signed to Decca records after singing a song for his nannie Colleen on social media during the coronavirus pandemic.
It came to the attention of the iconic label, whose roster includes Andrea Bocelli, Dame Shirley Bassey and Diana Ross.
He recorded his debut album inside Metropolis Studios, which has hosted the likes of Queen, U2 to Adele.
Grandmother Colleen previously told Classic FM: “I could never have imagined that his little pieces, sung for me, would have led to this amazing opportunity.
“My husband and I are so very proud of Cormac, and we hope that his singing will give much pleasure. We also hope that it will help to shed a little light during these dark times we are all having to endure.”
