He might not have won Britain’s Got Talent last year, heck, you might not even remember him at all, but sixteen-year-old BGT alumni, Bailey McConnell has done a Cher Lloyd and taken off in a big way stateside, so much so that his US fans are practically begging Ellen DeGeneres to let him on her chat show.
Talk about pulling out the big guns.
The singer-songwriter won the hearts of thousands when competed on the hit ITV talent show last year and is now gearing up to embark on a 25-date American tour later on this month, but his fans want more than to see him perform up and down the country – they want him on their TV screens.
Bailey’s legions of fans have started an actual Twitter campaign in a bid to capture the attention of everybody’s fave blonde-haired chat show host, and even have an online petition for him to appear on The Ellen Show.
To be fair, it was Bailey himself who first kicked off the movement by starting the hashtag #BaileyOnEllen, and obvi his 114K followers weren’t going to give up on his dreams without a fight, and before long the hashtag was trending across the globe.
Not too shabby, good going Bailey fans.
The young starlet then took to Twitter again to pretty much gawp at the dedication of his fans, writing: “Wow!! You lot got #BaileyOnEllen trending!!
“Haha.. Be very cool to go on @TheEllenShow”
‘Course it would, after all, who wouldn’t want to go on The Ellen Show, hmm?
In fact, we think that we might start a Twitter campaign of our own…
