YouTube sensation Jaymee sets his sights on stardom
Thursday, 7 March 2013
An Antrim teenager is set to represent Northern Ireland at a UK wide talent competition in Glasgow.
Jaymee Floyd was invited to Scotland by the TeenStar Talent Competition after being spotted on You Tube.
The singing sensation auditioned with hundreds of other hopeful teens and the judges have since put Jaymee through the live stages of TeenStar which will see him present his talent in Glasgow City Halls on April 6.
TeenStar is an exciting national talent compeition which searches for the best teen and pre-teen singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists of all genres who perform either covers or original material.
The brand new music competition, TeenStar, is being brought to you by Future Music who already produce the hugely successful Open Mic UK competition bringing us such acts as Birdy and Hatty Keane.
The 18-year-old local lad caught the judges' eye and is now firmly in the running for a place in the National Final at the O2 in London.
A number of his videos are already available on You Tube with around 1,500 views already clocked up.
The former Parkhall Integrated College student went on to study A-Levels in chemistry, biology, maths and physics at Slemish College in Ballymena.
He began a teaching course at Stranmillis but realised his heart lies in singing and gave up to focus on his career.
He is no stranger to the audition process either after making it through to the second round of the X Factor auditions last year and is hoping to use that experience to his advantage.
Thousands of hopefuls entered nationwide and hundreds of auditionees queued patiently on the day for their turn to impress the judges.
The latter stages of the competition will also provide The Folly lad with the opportunity to impress guests from record labels, agencies and the entertainment industry, as well as judges from BBC Introducing.
