“Incredible opera performance tonight. He’s my winner. Golden Buzzer from me,” Lisa added alongside a number of star emojis.

Hundreds of her Twitter fans agreed, with the tweet racking up over 500 likes shortly after the show aired on Saturday night.

Viewers took to social media in their droves to share their shock and amazement at the singer’s incredible operatic voice.

After admitting to feeling nervous before the audition, he delivered a powerful rendition of the operatic song, which received roaring applause and a standing ovation from the audience and judges.

The unassuming singer dressed in a jumper and baseball cap appeared overwhelmed as the judges sang his praises and gave him four yeses.

Head judge Simon Cowell said: “Maxwell, that was extraordinary. Seriously, you’re so shy and quiet and then that happened.

“Your passion and obviously your voice and just you, I thought made it incredible.

“It was like one of those movies. This wasn’t supposed to happen and it was brilliant. Amazing.”

Alesha Dixon revealed that her arm hairs stood on end as soon as he began singing, adding: “It just felt romantic and powerful and meaningful and all the feels.”

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Maxwell had appeared on ITV before – and recorded an operatic music video.
