On Saturday, Rising Stars graduate, Dalton Harris put on another impressive performance to wow the judges, the audience, and ultimately the voting public on the first live show of this season of the talent series X Factor UK.

Twenty-four-year-old Harris chose David Bowie Life on Mars and truly put his impressive vocals, heart and emotion into a 90-second performance which left the audience touched, and was enough take him into the top 14 performers. On Sunday two contestants, Trinidadian Olatunje Yearwood and Briton Armstrong Martins were eliminated.

Speaking of his song choice ahead of the performance, Harris noted that the song speaks to possibilities and opportunities.

"I'm singing that song because the line 'Is there life on Mars?' . I thought of Jamaica... Is that the only place that exists... No. Is there any opportunity anywhere else in the world. That song for me is the perfect song. I just need to put my soul into it the way I always do. That's the only way I can sing . That's the only way I know how to," Harris said

Following his rendition of the Bowie tune three of the four judges instantly rose to their feet, giving the youngster an ovation.

Judge Robbie Williams was the first to speak.

"I feel like you are an established act coming on to the X Factor to promote your own album. Your voice is absolutely incredible. I love you. Own it. You are a beautiful person with a beautiful voice. Congrats, I am a fan."
