Ed called Andrea "fantastic".

Speaking to The Sun, Ed revealed: "I texted Cowell about the Italian dude because I think he is fantastic."

And it seems it's not just Andrea's voice that Ed has praised, as he also likes the hopeful's "love of pugs" - aww!

Andrea, who is mentored by Mel B, had another successful performance last Saturday after singing Whitney Houston's classic 'One Moment In Time'.

Andrea was all smiles this morning (22 October).

Andrea's song choice and powerhouse vocals certainly impressed the public, who voted him through to this week!

In fact, Andrea was pictured looking rather chirpy this afternoon (22 October) as he arrived at Media City in Salford Quays, Manchester.

The 20-year-old singer, who was on his way to an interview with BBC Breakfast, was stopped by fans and happily posed for photos while also signing a few autographs!
