The son of a Derry estate agent has wowed the judges on Britain’s Got Talent.

Jordan O’Keefe received huge applause when he sang a cover of One Direction’s Little Things on the ITV show last night.

The teenager told the panel of judges which included Simon Cowell that music was his passion, but said his Dad Paul had wanted him to study business.

“I went to college to do music and my dad changed the course to business on me,” said Jordan. “But I am here to do music. I really, really love my dad but he wants me to have a backup plan. It’s understandable but I am here today to prove him wrong.”

Jordan’s performance left his mother in tears, and he was so popular on Twitter he trended worldwide.

Amanda Holden said he was “amazing” whilst Simon said he was fantastic.

His dad Paul said he was “so proud” and “blown away” by his son’s performance.
