Cameron Richard – Gimme Love by Ed Sheeran – He has seen Keith Urban in concert twice! He’s from Louisiana, originally. Harry points out his typical New Orleans accent, that barely belies the cleft palate he once had. Cameron overcame major physical problems to not only be able to speak, but sing too. His cleft is barely noticeable. He accompanies himself on guitar, in a bright clear voice. He’s super emo, this kid. He belts out passionately and very earnestly. He’s a likable boy. Jlo says it felt good to her. Harry pays him a huge complimenting–that  he looks like a young Paul McCartney when he sings. Thank ya’ll!!! he shouts as he receives his golden ticket. “This is the best thing that’s every happened to me in my life!” Cute as a puppy! It’s 3 yesses.
