Rimmers man 'wows' Britain's Got Talent

Graham Blackledge from Rimmers Music in Preston was a surprise hit on last weekend's Britain's Got Talent.

The organist, who runs the chain's warehouse in Preston made an impression on the panel of judges with his version of Richie Valens' hit La Bamba. He went through with two votes from the three man panel, but not from Simon Cowell who described his rendition as "horrendous" and "like eating vanilla ice cream with a sausage - they don’t go together.”

Graham's performance has become a Youtube favourite and also lead to him appearing on This Morning.

Marius Jones, who worked with Graham at the Rimmers Music branch in Chapel Brow, said: "We’ve known for ages he was going to be on the show. I was out doing a gig myself but I had a look when I got in and didn’t know what to make of it really."
