Isaac Waddington, 15, is the big breakout contestant on Britain’s Got Talent, stealing hearts with his audition of Billy Joel’s “She’s Always A Woman.”

Isaac Waddington BGT Audition Goes Viral

Waddington performed from behind the piano in front of judges Amanda Holden, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and the notoriously critical Simon Cowell. The young performer took his time singing the Billy Joel ballad, and the huge studio audience was silent throughout, only to erupt into a standing ovation once he finished.

Waddington seemed a bit overwhelmed by the audience reaction, and his parents, little brother and sister, were all in tears watching him. Waddington, who is a treble in the Scottish Chamber Ochestra, was praised by all four judges, even Simon, who declared his performance “truly special.”

With his great voice and boyish charm, Waddington could be on his way to becoming a teenage heartthrob. After all, the boys of One Direction were similarly discovered auditioning for The X Factor only a few years ago. Already, fans have been declaring their love for the 15-year-old on Twitter, with many pledging to join his ‘fandom.’

Waddington is new on Twitter, though the young singer has already gained over 11,000 followers, most since his Britain’s Got Talent audition aired last week. He is also active on YouTube.
