Calum Scott won over the British nation with his audition on 2015’s Britain’s Got Talent, where his cover of Robyn’s ‘Dancing On My Own’ earned him the golden buzzer from head judge Simon Cowell.
After going on to win his semi-final heat with a performance of ‘We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off’ by Jermaine Stewart, Calum finished in sixth place overall.
Just under a year before he first found fame on BGT, Calum self-released ‘Dancing On My Own’ as his debut single and it went viral in 34 countries on Spotify, charted at number one in six countries and ranked in the Top 10 in over twenty countries, peaking at No. two on the Global Viral 50.
On iTunes, the single has charted top 10 in twelve countries and has been in the Top 40 of the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart for over a month, ahead of any radio play.
“When I recorded ‘Dancing On My Own’ in my bedroom, I never thought for a second that it would reach as far as it has and bring this level of support from literally all over the globe,” says Calum. “I’m completely overwhelmed by it all, so excited about the next chapter because there is so much to come!”
