Brendan Murray recently appeared on The X Factor UK in the hope of winning one of the six chairs in the show’s ‘six chair challenge’.
Murray took the stage and told the judges that he is there to fulfill a dream and that music is his passion. They wish him luck and he turns to face the other contestants who have already taken their places on stage. Brendan then starts singing “Everybody Hurts”, a song written and recorded by the hit band R.E.M.
Everyone, including the judges, was surprised by his voice. You can also see the other contestants arguing back and forth about how amazing he sounds. When Brendan hits the high notes of the song, the other contestants’ heads drop, knowing that one of them won’t be on stage for long.
Brendan sings with such intensity that you feel every emotion he has, as well as the emotions the songwriter intended you to feel.
Brendan naturally gets a standing ovation from the audience and judges after he finishes the song, and he collapses in a huddle on stage, looking like he’s in tears.
Brendan is told by Simon Cowell that he is in a different category to the other contestants. Another judge approaches Brendan and expresses his desire to speak with him before pressing the button that takes the contestant to the next round of the show. Brendan is overjoyed and everyone is excited to hear this incredible performer again.
