The Burt man sang his heart out on tonight’s show despite battling a heavy head-cold all week.
Dressed in a cool grey t-shirt, scarf and jeans, the student looked every bit the pop star.
Brian’s sister Ann-Marie wished him all the back from the audience and revealed singing was all he ever wanted to do.
Ann-Marie also revealed that Brian’s son Oran is also following in his dad’s footsteps and never stops singing!
The handsome Donegal man also admitted that while he is studying and working part-time in a garden- centre, singing was his life and he wanted to make a career out of it.
Brian faced some very difficult competition from fellow singers Don Stiffe and Shauna Buckley who were many people’s favourites to go through this evening.
But his unique rendition of the Goo Goo Dolls song “I Just Want You To Know Who I am” drew the crowd.
However there was shock when Dubliner Shauna, a stunning singer, was voted out.
Brian punched the air as his name was called out to make it through to the final of the huge show.
A huge campaign to get the voting public from Donegal and the entire North West is already underway!
