Liverpool teenager on American Idol

A teenager from Liverpool, has wowed judges on American Idol...while on holiday.

Joe Slater's parents spotted auditions were taking place while they were on holiday in Disney World Florida.

The 15 year old stunned the judges with his voice with his rendition of 'What a Wonderful World' and he was given a golden ticket for the televised rounds of the show. That means performing in front of judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Tyler.

His family is now saving hard to send him to the USA at the end of this month.

On the YouTube video Joe says, "This has allowed me to by-pass the ques to audition stages for the American Idol show in any of the states the auditions will be held at. just wish i was able to go back to audition. never mind maybe one day. P.S. I would like to thank all of the staff at Disney for giving me this fantastic opportunity and one i shall remember for the rest of my life"
