Let it Shine: Alexis Gerred is a massive hit with Dannii Minogue!

Alexis Gerred had a lot to live up to when he took to the Let It Shine stage tonight. The handsome singer revealed that he has already performed on the West End, so expectations were high from the judges.

Alexis performed a rock track, which was a little different to what we have become used to hearing on the BBC show. His rendition of Come Together was gritty and raw and the judges and audience reacted brilliantly.

Amber Riley said: “I loved it. You are clearly comfortable on stage. The crowd was rocking and you have a great voice. I loved it.”

Dannii Minogue added: “You definitely would work well with a team and you can shine right out the front on your own.”

Alexis sailed through to the next round with an impressive 18 stars!

Martin Kemp said: “I think you could tell you were in your happy place. All the pros stand there and a few seconds before they start singing they take a deep breath and calm down.”

Do you think he deserved his place? Leave your comments below….
