He is already being tipped to win this year's X Factor after what Simon Cowell said was the best audition he'd ever seen. But the bisexual singer has not spoken to his father Owen McCubbin for a year after a falling-out. While Mr Johnson spent the weekend at a holiday park with friends to escape the sudden media attention, Mr McCubbin was glued to the TV, cheering on his estranged son. Holding back tears, the former delivery driver, 51, said he had no idea his son had even auditioned for the programme until last week. Mr McCubbin, who separated from Mr Johnson's mother Maria Burgess, 48, ten years ago, suffered a nervous breakdown last year.

There are some songs that get covered over and over again on talent shows. It makes sense that so many artists would choose to perform them. As we saw this week on American Idol , going with an original song can also be risky. These are the songs we wish we could stop hearing on talent shows. This season alone, three contestants on American Idol have sung it. In fact, Madison Vandenberg changed from an original song to this one during her solo in Hollywood Week. This is a popular song choice for contestants with emotional backstories.

Entertainment industry professionals are holding meetings, drinking coffee, furiously typing away on their laptops or smartphones, but Bevier remains chill. She arrives with her boyfriend, Sam, in tow, and is rocking the perfect shade of pink hair. It all might sound like the culmination of years of hard work, but Bevier is not a typical year-old pop star on the rise. I have this whole very positive outlook on life. But she did. The video features her boyfriend, Sam, who recently transitioned from female to male. So, I was actually pitched this song. They sent it to me, and I was lucky enough to really connect with it.
It appears on her extended play EP of the same name and on her major label debut studio album, and third overall, Wildfire Platten co-wrote the song with Dave Bassett. The song peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot and also reached number one of the Adult Contemporary and Adult Pop Songs airplay charts. Outside the United States, "Fight Song" topped the charts in the United Kingdom and Poland and also peaked within the top ten of the singles charts in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Ireland and the top twenty of the charts in Slovakia. I wrote it because I needed to remind myself that I believed in myself.
