Joe still lives with his family in South Shields; he started singing a few years ago after playing around on a karaoke machine.


Since then, he’s performed in a few local musicals (inc Grease) and entered the ‘Music Means Life’ competition in 2008. This is a regional singing competition in North-East and he came 3rd – he’s also entered ‘Pride of Tyne Side’ competition and won ‘performer of the year’.

He entered The X Factor in 2007 and reached Boot camp but decided to leave the competition as he felt he was too young and wanted more experience (hence entering lots of local competitions). Since then he feels he made the right decision and is very happy to be back on The X Factor in 2009.


He has just started dance training and would love to perform around the world to thousands of people.
