2015: Britain's Got Talent

Main article: Britain's Got Talent (series 9)

On 11 April 2015, Scott's audition for the ninth series of Britain's Got Talent was broadcast on ITV. He performed a cover of Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" which he had heard Kings of Leon performing on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge in 2013. Following a standing ovation from the judging panel, Simon Cowell pressed the Golden Buzzer giving Scott an automatic place in the live shows. Explaining his decision to send Scott straight to the semi-finals, Cowell said: "I've never ever in all the years I've done this show heard a guy with the talent you've got. Seriously. And the version was sensational, which shows to me that you're more than a singer, you're an artist and that's why you got that (the buzzer)." After this audition, Scott received support from stars such as Little Mix and Ashton Kutcher.[8]

Following his appearance on the show's first episode, his Twitter followers jumped from 400 to over 25,000.[9] As of 25 April 2017 the audition has been viewed exactly 105,384,676 on YouTube. In the semi-final on 29 May, Scott performed "We Don't Have to Take Our Clothes Off" by Jermaine Stewart. Cowell commented "You really sound like a recording artist", whilst David Walliams suggested that he could have "success around the world". He won the semi final with 25.6% of the vote, sending him straight through to the final. In the final on 31 May, Scott performed "Diamonds" by Rihanna and finished sixth out of 12 contestants with 8.2% of the vote. After Britain's Got Talent, Scott embarked on a series of shows around the United Kingdom, including Viking FM Future Star Awards, Flamingo Land Resort Fair, Westwood Cross Shopping Centre's tenth anniversary, Gibraltar Summer Nights, Hull Daily Mail's Star and Dartford Festival.[10][11][12][13][14][15]
