The Harlesden resident blew the judges away singing Danny Hathaway’s ‘A Song For You’ blew the nation and the judges away leading while Storm and Diva Fever were booted out.

Simon Cowell said: “Unfortunately I’ve got to hand this over to Louis Walsh and say that was a fantastic choice of song. I can see it in your eyes, John, that meant a lot to you. You gave it 100%. It was a great performance.”

Dannii Minogue said to John: “I know you are on of the most loved contestants in this year’s line up. It just radiates from you when you sing. You have such a natural voice.

“There’s a few people in this competition where you can turn off the visual and just listen to the voice. And you’re one of them.”

Mr Adeyele is becoming renowned for his huge fan base, his colleagues at a Westminster care home are giving him their full support and his page on Facebook has already got 3,306 fans, one of them being A-lister Paloma Faith who descreibed him as ‘Amazing!’
