Meet Sam Wilkinson

13-year-old Sam comes from Lewisham in London.

For his original blind audition, Sam performed Like a Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan, including playing the harmonica.


Before his performance, he opened up about losing his mum to leukemia a year before.

Sam’s performance got both Pixie and Danny to spin around for him.

Sam chose to join Team Danny after the pair enjoyed an impromptu guitar session on stage, with Sam showcasing an original song, ‘Everything’s Alright’ – which he reprised in the live final.

“Those two are made for each other,” remarked Pixie at the time

While Sam was left speechless by his victory, mentor Danny commented: “Tonight was the hardest because they were all worthy winners, the talent has been unbelievable, but Sam really deserves it

“He’s done amazing, he’s been a pleasure to mentor. He’s my little bro now!”

Sam walked away with a £30,000 prize towards their musical education plus a special family holiday to Orlando courtesy of Universal Studios and Norwegian Air.

For the final, Danny Jones brought in McFly bandmate and friend Tom Fletcher to help Sam work on his original song.
