We have a massive line up this yea headlined byÂ Marcus Collins, at just 23 years old, has already achieved great heights in his singing and musical career after his journey started on TVâ€™s highest rating talent show, The X Factor. Marcus became a firm favourite right from the beginning and his talent was nurtured by his mentor, Gary Barlow. Marcus proved himself adept at putting in startling musical performances, moving through different styles and genres of music with ease. However, it was his slick interpretation of Motown and soul classics that assured him a place in the final, where he got to sing his series showstopper â€˜(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higherâ€™ as well as teaming up with Gary for a spectacular duet.
