The 19-year-old had already auditioned in front of producers of the X Factor to win through to the second round.

Jethro said: "I started singing when I was a child in the Philippines and moved here in 2000 to get my new life.

"I sing a lot of Eurovision entries and can sing in many different languages.

"I would like to perform in front of a big crowd and my target is to enter Eurovision - I've been a fan all my life."
