Simon Cowell will sensationally axe Ryan O'Shaughnessy from Britain's Got Talent on tonight's (05.05.12) show.
The 19-year-old wannabe wowed viewers and the judges - Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon - with his love song 'No Name', about pal Katie Keegan, at his audition but it was since revealed that Ryan is under contract to record company Universal Ireland after taking part in the Irish version of 'The Voice'.
Speaking to Ryan on tonight's episode, Simon says: "We have a bit of a problem, and I think you know what that problem is don't you? You're on another show which you're signed up to. You signed a contract with another company so why did you come and audition for this show?
"All you're doing is taking the place of somebody else, who isn't in your position on two shows. I'll be absolutely blunt with you, we were going to give you a yes, but I can't...you understand that"
Criticising 'The Voice', which he left after one week, Ryan replies: "Song writing is my thing and I wasn't allowed to express my own music on the other show, but I was on this show, it was a better opportunity for me"
However, this may not be the end of Ryan's time on 'BGT', viewers will see him vow to sort out his contractual obligations and make it back on the programme in time for the live auditions.
He says: "Right now I know exactly what I want to do, I need to get home, get that organised so I can get out of that show and come back over here and do 'BGT' because that's what I want to do"
