The ten-year-old boy never thought he would be well-received by judges, let alone the crowd, after singing his heart out. His reaction was priceless.


Calum Courtney stole the hearts of the public when he auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent. Singing a classic, he gave it everything he had and didn’t let anything stop him.

He delivered such a great performance that it was not even evident that he has been struggling with a mild case of autism.

Singing is Calum’s passion and it was always his dream to perform in front of a massive stage.

Faith Tap shared that his drive was what made him try his luck to audition for the hit British talent show.


When he stepped foot on the stage, Calum was asked if he was nervous. In a nice manner, he replied that he wasn’t nervous at all.

At first, some of the judges kept silent and were just observing the young boy. Their reactions changed when Calum began belting out his chosen song piece.

Before joining Britain’s Got Talent, Calum became viral in the United Kingdom and was known as the “Asda Boy.”

He became famous for his rendition of Who’s Loving You by Smokey Robinson in front of the shoppers at Asda.

A random shopper recorded his performance and it quickly became a viral sensation.


The praise that the ten-year-old received was what made him want to continue his passion and pursue his music.

He made a bold choice to try his luck in national television and perform in front of Simon Cowell and the other judges on Britain’s Got Talent.

It took months for Calum to prepare for the big audition day. When that day came, he was ready and excited.

It was no surprise that the judges fell in love with Calum after he showed off his amazing talent in front of millions of people.
