Alejandro Fernandez-Holt: ‘Being a heartthrob is so surreal!’

Alejandro Fernandez-Holt: ‘Being a heartthrob is so surreal!’

If you saw Alejandro Fernandez-Holt’s arena audition this evening, then you’ll know he completely wowed the audience (and a certain Judge called Ms Nicole Scherzinger) when he took to the arena stage to sing Hero by Enrique Iglesias.

We think it was his silky smooth vocals and boyish charms that got the ladies on their feet - oh, and the fact that he burst into Spanish mid-song probably helped too. In fact, the latter earned him a standing ovation and some seriously high-pitched cheers.

“That was so surreal,” blushes Alejandro. “I got a standing ovation – and those cheers! It completely exceeded everything I thought would happen.

“I tried to pick a song that would not only appeal to me, but also appeal to the audience. I wanted to make it my own though and just decided on the spot to sing in Spanish. I’m quite fluent and I hadn’t seen that on the show so I thought I’d give it a go. I always like to be surprised by what comes out of my mouth, as much as the audience are!”

Well pal, you certainly managed that. And what a pleasant surprise it was. We were certainly standing up and applauding.

Check out Alejandro's full arena audition and see him show off his bet chat-up lines at the Talk Talk backstage party.
