A love song about a mystery girl wowed the judges on Britain's Got Talent last night (31.03.12).
Singer/ songwriter Ryan O'Shaughnessy - who spent nine years on Irish soap 'Fair City' and recently auditioned out for the Irish version of singing contest 'The Voice' - impressed Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon with 'No Name', his self penned declaration of love to a friend, although he refused to name her despite encouragement from the panel.
Simon said: "Have you played her that song? So that's the first time she's ever gonna hear it? Wow. Well, if that doesn't work, nothing will. Are you sure you don't want to give me the name? But she's gonna know when she watches this, I presume? I think you've got a brilliant sense of melody, I think your lyrics are superb. And I love your voice."
David added: "I can't believe she won't go out with you. That's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, sung incredibly well. That was absolutely astonishing. Well done."
Alesha was equally impressed, saying: "Ryan, that was really sweet and sincere. I really enjoyed it. And I felt it. It was really lovely. Well done."
Following the show last night, Simon sent Ryan a message on twitter asking if the song had worked on his mystery crush and the 19-year-old musician replied: "Im stll working on it (sic)."
