South Shields X Factor hopeful, Aidan Martin, has been praised by an eighties pop icon after a powerful performance on the ITV talent show.

Aidan performed Point Of No Return and played piano to accompany his vocals.

The bartender says he is 'over the moon' to be through to the Judges' Houses stage of the competition after impressing judges during the Six Chair Challenge.

If Aidan makes it through Judges' Houses, he secures a spot on the live shows and could go on to win.
