BGT's Jamie Lee Harrison could be set to land a record deal alredy.

24 year old singer songwriter Jamie from Newcastle wowed the judges on Britain's Got Talent earlier this year.

Jamie sang REM's 'Everybody Hurts' and impressed the judges and audience with the powerful performance.

Simon Cowell concluded: "This is what I've been waiting for.

"I think we've just scratched the surface here, you have a great voice... I heard real soul. You're exactly the kind of person I want to find when we make these shows."

Now through to the live shows, Jamie is set for big things even if he doesn't make the final or win.

A friend told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Jamie is a rare talent. The public are completely in love with him and his unique voice.

"Already labels have been contacting him to sign him up."Regardless what happens this week on the show he's certain to land a deal and to have a good future ahead."

Meanwhile, it turns out that BGT wasn't Jamie's first shot at stardom, previously appearing on The X Factor in 2013.

Simon wasn't on the panel then, with Gary Barlow instead heading up the judges.

And while Jamie did get a yes through to bootcamp, he didn't make it any further.

Jamie told the Daily Star newspaper: “When I went on X Factor it was Gary Barlow.

"If Simon had been there I don’t know what would have happened. I guess it just wasn’t my time back then.”

He teased to the ITV website: “I feel that maybe I didn’t show my whole vocal range off in the first Audition, so I’d just love to show people my vocal range and pick another song that is close to my heart, that people can relate to and hopefully get the public on board."

Britain's Got Talent 2017 continues tonight at 7:30PM on ITV.
