"It is such an honour to be a part of something as prestigious as Britain's Got Talent. To be representing the North East is a dream come true, I really hope the region gets behind myself and The Kingdom Tenors. I know they can. I can't wait for everyone to see our performance and I hope that it gets us to the live final on Sunday. I really want to thank everyone in the region for their support so far, it's been overwhelming and I genuinely appreciate it all."
