Hello… LAUGHS: Hello. I used to work at McDonald’s, and then I thought I’d take my
music career to the next level and just see what I could do. So I busk quite a lot on the
weekends. Wherever my nan will take me,
I go busking. And, actually, two years ago, someone randomly just posted
it on social media. And people were recognising me, like, the locals
and stuff like that. Well, this is like 100 people, and
all the eyes are going to be on me. So I need to pull this off. There is a lot of talent on here. This is going to have to be
spectacular to knock him off. If no-one stands up, then at least
I know myself that I’ve tried my hardest, and I won’t be walking away with my
head down. OK, the final walk-out. Fingers crossed, they stand up. Hopefully, yeah, hopefully. Please look up. Come on, lift your head up, boy. This will knock it out of the park,
though. Here is the final act of the night. If they score more than 81,
they get in the sing-off. If they score more than 88, they’re
straight through to the final. Hi, I’m Michael, I’m from
Hartlepool, I’m really nervous. But this is my favourite song,
and I really hope you enjoy it. # Left a good job in the city # Working for the man every night
and day… # It’s my song! # But those big wheels keep on
turning # Proud Mary keep on burning… # Ho-ho-ho-ho! # And we’re rolling # Hey! Rolling, yeah # Rolling on the river One, two, three… # Well, I left a good job in the
city # Working for the man every night
and day # And I never lost a minute of sleep # Worrying about the way
things might have been # Big wheels keep on turning # Proud Mary keep on burning # Rolling, rolling,
rolling on the river # We’re rolling, rolling, # Rolling on the river # I cleaned a lot of plates
in Memphis # Pumped a lot of ‘tane down in
New Orleans # But I never saw the good
side of the city # Until I hitched
a ride on the riverboat queen # Big wheels keep on turning # Proud Mary keep on burning # Rolling, rolling,
rolling on the river… # This could be our first-ever
hundred. He’s won… CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Wow, he’s done 100! # And we’re rolling on the river. # CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Everyone was up on their feet!
Incredible! Amazing! Yeah! What a performance! AUDIENCE: # Rollin’, rollin’… #
Thank you! # Rollin’ on the river # Rollin’, rollin’ # Rollin’, rollin’ # Rollin’ on the river # Rollin’, rollin’
Rollin’, rollin’ # Rollin’ on the river. # RAPTUROUS APPLAUSE Michael! Could not have done any better. Thank you. Everyone loved it, but there’s one
person I know that probably loved it more than
anyone else. Tina T. CHEERING Tina Turner tribute act. I am one proud Mary! CHEERING
Thank you! You’ve got 100 of
these amazing guys. Respect! Simply the best! Who-o-o-o-o-oa!
Who-o-o-o-o-oa! Oh, my God! I’ve never felt so alive! LAUGHTER This is absolutely unbelievable. Even Paulus stood up. CHEERING He’s not laughed since 1987. LAUGHTER Paulus. You’re loving life. You stood up.
What was it that got you going? LAUGHTER You’ve broken him. Thank you. CHEERING Now, Georg, what has Michael got in
store for him after that? Michael, you absolutely lit me up. That was incredible. Thanks so much. In the Brit School, over the last
17 years, we’ve had artists come out of there like Adele, Leona Lewis,
Jessie J, Ella Eyre. You are outstanding! Thanks. Unbelievable! Geri. You picked a brilliant song. Thank you. Brilliant performance. And then you
had so much charisma. Thank you. So you ticked all the boxes. You got 100 people on their feet.
That is All Together Now. Well done. Thank you. Cheers.
