After Simon Cowell boots him off for having another contract, Ryan is back

Last night on TV, Simon Cowell told Britain’s Got Talent contest Ryan O’Shaughnessy why he couldn’t put him through to the semi-finals.

He’d discovered that Ryan had signed a contract with ‘another show’ – The Voice Of Ireland.

But, as Ryan was kicked out of the rival series on the first night, and after lengthy negotiations, seems that he’s free to go ahead on BGT after all.

‘I’m over the moon to be through to the semi-finals,’ Ryan tells ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent site. ‘I was contracted to do another show, but I’ve since been released from my contract.

‘I want to thank the judges for giving me a second chance. The reveal was such an emotional ordeal for me. I was fraught with nerves. I felt as though I’d let Simon down. Simon‘s somebody you want to please, so it felt awful to disappoint him.

‘I’m looking forward to the live shows. I’ve been working on new material and focusing on the music.’

The Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals begin tonight.
