Who is Dalton Harris?

Dalton Andre Harris is a 24-year-old performer from Jamaica.

The aspiring singer flew over from the Caribbean for his chance to impress the judges.

In his audition, he sang Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word by Elton John.

Dalton said that he’d been preparing for the audition for seven years and described it as the most important moment of his life so far.

Not only did the singer secure four yeses, but he also got a huge hug from Ayda and Louis following his performance.

Since then, the hopeful performer has made it through the Six Chairs Challenge and the Judges’ Houses for which he sang Listen from Dreamgirls.

Louis was impressed by Dalton and said: “What was so incredible, aside from the unbelievable vocal, was the whole story you told us.

“I will never listen to that song the same way ever again.”

Now, he is preparing to put on a show as the live shows are approaching.
