Craig Eddie grabbed a place on judge, Anne-Marie’s team, as the blind auditions concluded last night.

The 22-year old booked his place in the next stage of the competition with his version of Foy Vance’s Make It Rain.

He became the second singer from the district to be on her team.

Two weeks ago, Cameron Ledwidge, 18, from Denny, impressed the singer with his version of Conan Gray’s Heathers.

Craig’s performance saw Ann-Marie turn almost immediately to secure him, while fellow judge Olly Murs, who had no spaces left, was unable to make a pitch despite loving his voice.

The singer’s performance has already been viewed over 100,000 times on You Tube, and his social media pages have been inundated with messages of congratulation.

Announcing his success, Craig said: “Thank you so much everyone for the support.”

The next stage of the competition - the head to head battles - begin this weekend.
