A teenager from Wigan wowed the judges of The Voice Kids after singing an emotional duet with her granddad.

Gracie O'Brien and her granddad Wayne Boyd covered a duet of Elvis Presley's Always on my Mind and left one of the judges in tears.

Towards the end of the show, young Gracie took to the stage with a rendition of 'It's Quiet Uptown' from Hamilton, but none of the judging quartet decided to spin around their chairs for her.

Gracie's family were backstage supporting her through the audition, and one particular moment with her granddad Wayne was enough to set off the waterworks for Danny, as the pair shared an impromptu duet in-front of the adoring crowd.

Pixie Lott, Jessie J, Danny and will.i.am then all joined the vocalist onstage for a hug each, with Danny questioning:

Has anybody got a tissue or what?
