Aiden Grimshaw’s Gold Digger gets him through to X Factor’s Boot Camp

18 year old Mancunian singer and star of his school production of Grease, Aiden Grimshaw takes to the stage with Kanye West’s Gold Digger. So pleased to see a guy who comes on stage looking fashionable, youthful and has a great voice.

He gives it a fantastic acapella version and a great voice. Perhaps one of the best we’ve heard at auditions so far. He handles both the Kanye and Jamie Foxx parts brilliantly.

Louis Walsh describes him as a “breath of fresh air”. Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger purrs “I love your voice. You have a lot of soul. You were in it and I was in it and I think the whole of Manchester was in it.” Get a room, guys. Simon Cowell merely points in cliched record exec fashion and says “Now that’s what I call a pop star.”

Cowell goes on to say “You’re one of the best we’ve found, certainly in Manchester and possibly one of the best in the competition.” All three judges give a yes vote, sending Aiden through to boot camp.

High praise from the judges. What did you lot think of Aiden Grimshaw’s performance? Think he’ll make it to the [[The X Factor 2010|X Factor]] live finals?
