During the audition round of this year's Britain's Got Talent, 10-year-old Calum Courtney impressed the judges as well as the audience by singing a rendition of Who's Lovin You, a popular song which has been sung by musical icons like Michael Jackson as well as Smokey Robinson.

A video uploaded on the official YouTube channel of the reality talent show revealed the spectacular vocal ability of the young boy, which moved the judges emotionally and forced the audience to get on their feet in appreciation.

When the boy first appeared on the stage, he looked nervous just like any other average contestant. However, when judge Alesha Dixon asked Courtney if he was nervous, he confidently answered, "No."

Dixon also asked the boy if he thought he could win the show. Courtney didn't think twice about it and answered, "Hopefully."

When he started belting out the lyrics of the song, the judges were started from the very first note. As he continued to sing and started hitting out more challenging notes, the appreciation of the judges only grew.

His family members, who were sitting in the audience as well as watching him from backstage, could not contain their joy and were in tears.

As soon as Courtney hit the final note, the judges along with the entire studio audience were up on their feet with loudest of applauds. The judges congratulated him and told him that he should be "proud" of himself.

After hearing the appreciation, Courtney could not contain his emotions either and the young boy broke into tears, earning more applause of encouragement from the audience.

It was truly an unforgettable moment for the young boy. However, it was not his first experience of gathering appreciation at such a large scale.

According to an Independent report, the young boy, who has a mild form of autism, had wowed the crowd at a local supermarket back in 2017 with the same song.

The source also showed a video that revealed the boy standing in the middle of the aisle and surprising the shoppers with his incredible voice and confidence.
