Despite making the top three, he lost to Jai McDowell.

The 12-year-old Framingham Earl High School pupils wowed judges with his performace of Kelly Clarkson’s Because of You.

Simon Cowell said: “How you’ve coped with everything so well at your age and then you come out on that stage and - and this is a big big song - and you nailed it, you just did brilliantly.”

He then referred to when Louis Walsh called Ronan a star in his first audition.

Louis said: “He’s made the hairs stand on the back of my neck.”

David Hasselhoff said: “Ronan, I actually wrote down ‘Ronan will win this competition if he nails it’. And buddy, you nailed it.”

Amanda Holden said: “From the moment that we set eyes on you in that audition I knew there was a magic about you - your composure, your voice and just the fact that you are a gorgeous, gorgeous boy.

“You’re a credit to your parents and to this show. Congratulations, you completely stormed it.”

Michael McIntyre said: “That was perfect, I think it was perfect. I’m such a great fan of yours that I felt nervous when you walked on and was hoping that you would do well but I was put at ease with the first note and it was perfection from then on.”

“It was absolutely exceptional and I would pay to go and see you, definitely.”

Ronan said he was pleased with his performace and thanked everyone for voting for him befoe breaking down in tears.

He faced stiff competition from teen group New Bounce and unique dancer Razy Gogonea.

Earlier in the week, Simon Cowell called in police after a blog, claiming to be written by a Sony BMG music executive said the competition was fixed and claimed Ronan had been working with Simon Cowell’s company, Syco, for two years.

Cowell blasted the romours as lies and Ronan said the whole situation was “silly”.

  • His chances were always going to be weak since the "scandal" in the red tops. Unfortunately us cynics see the scandals as just another publicity drive for the programme.

  • There is something wrong with EEN website. The video which I requested is not available - I didn't request it. Also the story about a street party in Muspole street is all over the place and in many font sizes. About X Factor in Britain come dancing got talent competition I would like to quote Rhett Butler from Gone with the Wind. " Frankly my dear I don't give a damn". All this hype and spin off CD's DVD's teashirts etc will be in the charity shops next week in abundance.

  • Well done Ronan and James 2nd n 3rd. You both have great talent as has Jai. You didn't lose as anyone with any sens eshould be able to see how the public are manipulated right the way through to vote forthe contestants who are going to make the promotors money. No looney dog act or sill old man doing an antiquated dance routine is going to win because they can't be recorded to make money but these acts are still put though at every stage often at the expense of someone who does have talent in order to manipulate votes. The results last night were what Cowell and co wanted as they now have three potential earners instead of just one. If Ronan had won Jai unfortunately would have slipped into obscurity. Its crap entertainment but this must never detract from great talent like Ronans and many others who reach for the stars. Pity MORE of the money isnt channelled back into helping the poorer in our society.

  • Find it bizarre that CUTHBERT feels the need to read the article and comment about BGT yet has no time for the programme?! A fabulous oppurtunity for ordinary people, well done Ronan and Jai.

  • Now this child can get down to his studies and get a degree that will help him get a job on the checkouts at Waitrose rather than Tesco. When the heat dies down maybe the Cowell machine will eat him up for a year or two - leaving him to do the career choices outlined above a few years later.

  • Us ? Speak for yourself. Some of us have no time for a third rate talent contest of pub singers and irritating school children ,designed purely to boost ITV ratings and advertising income and the coffers of a botoxed self publicity machine who i should remind you brought to the world the atrocious non-music of Robson and Jerome , a crime worthy of an appearance before a court in The Hague. The voting in these contests has been shown to be as reliable as that for FIFA president and still you mugs fall for it.
