Giovanni Spano - known to his friends as Gio - brings a bit of Rock 'n' Roll to The X Factor stage. Coming from a musical family and with a history of performing in musical theatre, he's certainly ready for his shot at X Factor glory, and wants to bring fun and enjoyment to the audience.
Gio is 33 years old and lives in Ruislip, West London. He made his musical debut at the age of 12 performing in Bugsy Malone alongside Jamie Bell and Sheridan Smith. He has since performed in musicals like Footloose, Guys and Dolls, Fame and Jesus Christ Superstar, and sees himself as a rock 'n' roll entertainer. "I want everyone to feel like a superhero when they hear me perform on stage". Now aiming to go it alone as Gio, rather than the characters from his musicals, he's hoping the audience do feel that way and vote him to the top of The X Factor pile.
