Scots boy wows Little Mix with Britain's Got Talent act
Kerr James, 12, has made some famous friends following his performance on the talent show.
A 12-year-old boy who wowed the judges on Britain's Got Talent had made some famous friends following his knockout performance.
Kerr James sang a powerful rendition of Try a Little Tenderness on Saturday night's show, crooning his way into the next round.
David Walliams said he was a "great performer" while Simon Cowell said the youngster had "real energy and real optimism" before praising him for standing out.
Now the Scot has revealed that since his performance, two of the stars of girl band Little Mix have praised the youngster on social media.
Kerr said: "One of my friends Snapchatted me and he just said that Jesy from Little Mix had shared me on their story, along with Jade from Little Mix and at that point I was actually freaking out."
"I direct messaged her back saying thank you and that I really appreciated it, and she ended up liking my posts and came back with a really nice comment and then she followed me.
"I was amazed by that because it's Jesy from Little Mix!" he laughed.
Kerr has set his sights set on becoming a recording artist, adding that it would be a dream to play at a venue like Glasgow's Hydro in the future.
He said: "The dream is to become a recording artist, as big as I could go.
"That's why I was loving it when people were sharing [the video of me singing]."
Kerr now has his fingers crossed that he will pass the next stage of the competition and be in with a chance of performing at the Royal Variety Show.
