Robbie Kennedy (Britain's Got Talent 2013)

Britain's Got Talent star Robbie Kennedy has sent Iris flying up the charts after his audition last night.

Singer Robbie performed the Goo Goo Dolls track at his try out before sailing through to the next round.

Alesha Dixon gushed “Robbie, you are so likeable. My heart is pounding. You just knocked me out. You have been blessed with a true gift.”

Amanda Holden added: “Robbie your voice is outstanding. So do any of your work mates know how talented you are? Well I can’t wait. You are absolutely going to knock them dead when this goes out on the telly. You were brilliant.”

And David Walliams agreed: “The contrast between your amazing voice and the acoustic guitar playing worked fantastically. It was really, really stunning and it blew us all away, so well done.”

Now the song has shot up the iTunes chart, currently in the Top 10 at the time of writing.

Speaking to him after his audition, Simon Cowell told Robbie: "I wasn't expecting that, I think if you were to put that record out, you'd have a number one hit."
