Little Mix The Search: The Guitar Act Billy Reekie That Really Impressed The Girls
22 September 2020, 10:40
Billy Reekie amazed Little Mix ladies Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock as he auditioned for new show, The Search.
And while not many spoilers have been given away, act Billy Reekie seems to be one audition that impressed our four favourite ladies, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
So who is the guitar act that wowed the biggest girl band? From Scotland, Billy is just 22 years old and it was his song about his grandparents relationship that apparently won them over.
Speaking to a national newspaper, the Scottish singer/songwriter said: “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I love singing and my dream is to tell my story through my songs.
"The show’s management got in touch as they heard my song Old Fashioned Way about my gran and grandad. They really loved it.”
Billy then went on to say the Little Mix ladies were all lovely and “even more beautiful in person”.
It’s not known just how Billy got on in the competition just yet.
