-I can't really believe what's

-happened over the past few months.

0:00:180:00:21

-It's been a rollercoaster...

0:00:240:00:26

-..it's been

-an incredible experience.

0:00:270:00:30

-It's just changed my life

-and my family's life completely.

0:00:300:00:35

-It's made me realise that there's

-a big, wide world out there.

0:00:410:00:45

-It's opened my eyes

-to what could be.

0:00:450:00:48

-What I've achieved up to now, my

-family's always been there for me.

0:00:530:00:57

-All the way through the X Factor

-and everything.

0:00:570:01:00

-A few months ago,

-there was only one Lloyd Macey.

0:01:170:01:20

-Now there's two.

0:01:200:01:22

-How do you like being filmed?

0:01:450:01:47

-Well, you've become part

-of the furniture by now.

0:01:480:01:52

-I've just got used to it.

0:01:530:01:55

-When I'm about the house,

-I forget that you're filming...

0:01:550:02:00

-..because you're my friend.

0:02:000:02:02

-Everything that's happened, you've

-caught on camera. It's been great.

0:02:020:02:07

-It started in February.

0:02:110:02:13

-I was shopping in town.

0:02:140:02:15

-I saw X Factor on the door

-and a girl said come in.

0:02:160:02:19

-If she hadn't invited me in,

-I wouldn't have done it.

0:02:190:02:23

-I was in Mam-gu's house

-and I got a call.

0:02:240:02:27

-I was eating

-my fish fingers sandwich.

0:02:270:02:29

-I said, "I'm eating,

-can I pass you on to my nan?"

0:02:300:02:32

-They said, "Yeah, no worries,

-it's the X Factor."

0:02:330:02:36

-Mam-gu came off the phone and

-said we were going to Manchester...

0:02:360:02:40

-..in a fortnight's time

-for an audition.

0:02:410:02:44

-OK.

0:02:490:02:51

-I'm mentally in the shower.

0:02:530:02:55

-Get up!

0:02:550:02:57

-OK, right, come on 'en.

0:02:580:03:00

-Alright.

0:03:000:03:01

-It's 5.00am.

0:03:020:03:04

-I don't know what to expect.

-It's crazy.

0:03:060:03:08

-I'm looking forward to it though.

0:03:090:03:12

-Nan's ready. Here she comes.

0:03:190:03:21

-Up at half past four!

0:03:210:03:23

-Are you sure

-you're alright in the back?

0:03:230:03:27

-There's your blanket by there.

0:03:270:03:29

-Where we going, Snowdon, is it?

0:03:300:03:32

-Me, Mam, Dad and Mam-gu

-travelled up.

0:03:350:03:37

-Dad missed a Lions rugby match

-that day.

0:03:380:03:41

-I knew this was a big thing.

0:03:410:03:43

-We went up to Manchester.

0:03:440:03:46

-It was fantastic. I remember

-the journey, we were all excited.

0:03:460:03:50

-Lloyd Macey!

0:03:510:03:54

-Are you the right person

-to say hello to?

0:03:560:03:59

-You'd better eat something, love.

0:04:000:04:02

-Lloyd have always loved

-fish finger sandwiches.

0:04:020:04:05

-I heard that Simon loves

-his fish finger sandwiches.

0:04:060:04:08

-I remember walking in thinking,

-"What have I got to lose?"

0:04:090:04:12

-It was my first visit to Manchester.

0:04:130:04:15

-Hello, hiya.

0:04:150:04:17

-Hello, hiya.

-

-Are you a group?

0:04:170:04:18

-I'm singing. My nan's come in.

0:04:190:04:21

-It's your fish finger sandwiches.

0:04:220:04:24

-He loves a fish finger sandwich.

0:04:250:04:26

-He loves a fish finger sandwich.

-

-We'd like to hear Lay Me Down.

0:04:260:04:28

-# Yes, I do, I believe

0:04:310:04:33

-# That one day I will be

-where I was right there

0:04:330:04:37

-# I'm missing you

0:04:380:04:40

-# Deny this emptiness

0:04:400:04:42

-# This hole that I'm inside

0:04:420:04:43

-# These tears,

-they tell their own story

0:04:440:04:47

-I was nervous

-but having Mam-gu with me...

0:04:470:04:50

-..thinking back to when I was a boy,

-she was always there...

0:04:500:04:55

-..encouraging me to do well.

0:04:550:04:57

-I just stood there

-thinking this was totally surreal.

0:04:570:05:03

-# Can I lay by your side

0:05:030:05:10

-# Next to you

0:05:100:05:15

-# You #

0:05:150:05:24

-Yes, yes, yes, definitely.

0:05:290:05:31

-Yes.

0:05:310:05:33

-Christine?

0:05:330:05:34

-Yes!

0:05:350:05:36

-Yes!

-

-You've got five yeses.

0:05:360:05:37

-Thank you very much.

0:05:380:05:40

-It's so good to meet you.

0:05:480:05:49

-It's so good to meet you.

-

-I liked him. She's adorable.

0:05:490:05:52

-I can't quite believe

-what happened to me today.

0:05:520:05:56

-I've just returned from an audition

-on the X Factor in Manchester.

0:05:560:06:01

-And... wow!

0:06:010:06:03

-A totally incredible experience.

0:06:030:06:07

-Singing in front of four

-of the most influential people...

0:06:070:06:11

-..in the music business,

-in Britain and across the world.

0:06:110:06:15

-I'm on cloud nine.

0:06:150:06:18

-I still can't process

-what's happened.

0:06:180:06:22

-I'm so happy, I had four yeses.

0:06:230:06:25

-I'm through to the next round.

-Who knows what will happen next.

0:06:260:06:30

-I'm shattered but it's fun

-but I probably won't sleep tonight.

0:06:310:06:36

-I'll just be thinking

-about a truly incredible day.

0:06:360:06:41

-CHILDHOOD

0:06:430:06:49

-I think singing has always

-been an interest of mine.

0:06:540:06:57

-I have a few memories.

0:06:580:06:59

-I remember Mam-gu

-grabbing a brush to brush my hair.

0:07:000:07:04

-She'd give me the brush

-to keep me quiet...

0:07:040:07:07

-..and I'd stand there

-using it as a microphone.

0:07:070:07:10

-I'd sing and perform

-in the living room.

0:07:100:07:12

-I remember in Year 1...

0:07:130:07:15

-..there was a turning point

-in my shyness and confidence.

0:07:150:07:19

-My teacher, Mrs Millington, said,

-"I think you have a singing voice.

0:07:190:07:24

-"There's something there. Stand

-on the table and sing to the class."

0:07:240:07:28

-I remember that moment.

0:07:280:07:30

-I felt different when I sung,

-I felt so confident.

0:07:300:07:35

-Everyone applauded.

0:07:350:07:37

-I didn't feel as if I owned

-the world, but I felt such freedom.

0:07:370:07:42

-I remember sitting down,

-going back into my shell...

0:07:420:07:46

-..and finishing the lesson.

0:07:460:07:49

-I sang from Year 1 until Year 6.

0:07:500:07:53

-I would compete in the eisteddfod,

-I loved competing in the eisteddfod.

0:07:530:07:59

-When I reached secondary school,

-it was different...

0:08:000:08:04

-..I felt like a small fish

-in a very large pool.

0:08:040:08:08

-I always wanted a career

-and I always worked hard in school.

0:08:080:08:14

-I stopped singing

-and I concentrated on my studies.

0:08:140:08:19

-I was wondering

-if I'd made the right decision.

0:08:190:08:22

-Hello.

0:08:460:08:47

-Lloyd. Lloyd Macey.

-You're looking good.

0:08:470:08:50

-Thank you for everything

-on the show. I learnt so much.

0:08:510:08:55

-At least I was honest with you.

0:08:550:08:57

-You were hands-on. I never thought

-you'd help that much.

0:08:570:09:00

-I love voices, I love music. I loved

-the fact I could be honest with you.

0:09:000:09:05

-Sometimes you didn't want

-to hear it.

0:09:050:09:08

-At least I did it

-and I'm glad I did.

0:09:080:09:10

-It was important. I've got

-a little friend I want you to meet.

0:09:100:09:14

-OK.

0:09:140:09:16

-He was named after you.

-This is Louis.

0:09:160:09:19

-Don't tell me it's a dog!

0:09:190:09:21

-He's called Louis, like you.

0:09:210:09:23

-I like it. That's funny.

0:09:230:09:25

-Louis the little Jack Russell.

0:09:260:09:28

-Jack Russell you called me after,

-that's nice. That's very funny.

0:09:280:09:32

-Are you in Wales, yeah?

0:09:330:09:35

-Yes, in my living room in the house.

0:09:350:09:37

-In the living room.

0:09:370:09:38

-In the living room.

-

-I thought you said Liverpool.

0:09:380:09:40

-You've lost a lot of weight.

-How much have you lost?

0:09:410:09:44

-About two stone, maybe more.

-I'm really trying.

0:09:450:09:48

-It's important.

-Image is important as well.

0:09:490:09:52

-It is, it is.

0:09:520:09:54

-It is, it is.

-

-The full package.

0:09:540:09:56

-You have to be professional,

-you have to believe in it.

0:09:560:10:00

-You've got it all now.

-It's all ahead of you.

0:10:000:10:03

-Thank you very much.

0:10:030:10:05

-Thank you very much.

-

-You're through to the next round.

0:10:050:10:07

-Of your life!

0:10:080:10:10

-Thank you very much. Ta-ra.

0:10:100:10:12

-ILLNESS

0:10:240:10:28

-When I went to college,

-I dropped from 18st down to 11st.

0:10:280:10:34

-Within a couple of weeks.

0:10:340:10:36

-I was pale.

-Mam-gu would say I was pale.

0:10:370:10:40

-I just remember being in hospital...

0:10:410:10:46

-..just thinking

-that I was still young.

0:10:460:10:49

-I didn't want to die.

0:10:490:10:51

-I didn't know what was wrong.

0:10:520:10:54

-Then the doctor came in

-and told me I had Crohn's disease.

0:10:540:10:59

-I thought it was going to be cancer

-or something like that.

0:10:590:11:03

-I remember the three of us,

-me, Mam and Dad...

0:11:040:11:07

-..celebrating the fact that they'd

-found out what was wrong with me.

0:11:080:11:13

-Dad said

-it was a blessing in disguise.

0:11:150:11:18

-This illness has helped me.

0:11:180:11:21

-I remember a day at home,

-we had a celebration with Mam-gu.

0:11:290:11:33

-Everyone went back to Mam-gu's house

-for food.

0:11:330:11:36

-She said, "Give us a song."

-She always said that.

0:11:360:11:40

-I sang and realised

-it was a lot easier.

0:11:400:11:42

-She said it was brilliant.

0:11:430:11:45

-It was always brilliant with Mam-gu,

-she always said I was good.

0:11:450:11:49

-Then something clicked in my head.

-I just wanted to sing.

0:11:500:11:55

-Hello, good evening.

0:12:020:12:04

-Hello, it's nice to be back again.

0:12:040:12:06

-My name's Lloyd Macey,

-I know you all know me.

0:12:070:12:10

-I'm so proud of my home area.

-It's such a tight-knit community.

0:12:110:12:15

-Whatever happens,

-we all support each other.

0:12:160:12:19

-I've done

-so many different gigs locally.

0:12:190:12:23

-After every gig,

-I feel it's been a great night.

0:12:230:12:26

-Not just singing in front of

-everyone, they give something back.

0:12:270:12:31

-They dance, they enjoy themselves,

-they congratulate and thank me.

0:12:310:12:36

-They say I'll go far

-and I should go for it.

0:12:360:12:39

-I can't describe the support

-in words.

0:12:400:12:43

-We're all so proud of one another.

0:12:430:12:45

-Thank you.

-What was he like?

-It was horrific really.

0:18:060:18:09

-It was horrific.

0:18:090:18:11

-It was horrific.

-

-Terrible.

0:18:110:18:12

-What was you like, Mam?

0:18:120:18:14

-I was sitting down then

-all of a sudden we were like this.

0:18:140:18:19

-All of us were going, "Four, six,

-seven, all this and that."

0:18:200:18:24

-I went like this,

-"Simon, not No.1, not No.1."

0:18:250:18:29

-Someone there was putting No.1 up.

0:18:290:18:32

-I went,

-"Put it down, get your hand down.

0:18:320:18:35

-"Simon, not No.1. Louis, Louis!"

0:18:350:18:38

-It was awful.

0:18:430:18:44

-It was awful.

-

-Hysterical.

0:18:440:18:46

-Awful, it was.

0:18:460:18:48

-Come on, Lloyd.

0:18:490:18:51

-I'm getting excited now.

0:18:520:18:54

-I'm really getting excited.

0:18:550:18:57

-The Six Chair Challenge, wow.

0:18:570:19:00

-This time, it felt like a challenge

-against the other boys...

0:19:010:19:06

-..to secure my place

-in the next round.

0:19:060:19:09

-Hello, Nan!

0:19:150:19:16

-What song have you picked?

0:19:170:19:19

-What song have you picked?

-

-Feels Like Home.

0:19:190:19:20

-# It feels like home to me

0:19:210:19:24

-# It feels like home to me

0:19:250:19:29

-I really enjoyed it on stage

-because everyone was supporting me.

0:19:290:19:33

-That's important

-for a community like mine.

0:19:340:19:36

-Everyone supports one another.

0:19:360:19:38

-# It feels like

-I'm all the way back home

0:19:390:19:41

-# Where I belong #

0:19:420:19:47

-Strong performance from Lloyd.

0:19:480:19:50

-You're taking the first seat.

0:19:500:19:53

-# This time I want it all

0:19:530:19:56

-# This time I want it all

0:19:570:20:00

-# I'm showing you all the cards #

0:20:000:20:04

-I came off stage, ran to Mam, Dad

-and Mam-gu and gave them cwtshes.

0:20:060:20:09

-Mam-gu cried, I cried.

0:20:100:20:11

-Then I went home with them.

0:20:110:20:13

-I went home in the car and thought,

-"I'm through to judges' houses."

0:20:140:20:18

-THE CONTRACT

0:20:260:20:31

-I've changed from being a person

-who wants to do something...

0:20:350:20:40

-..to someone who's halfway through

-one of the world's biggest shows.

0:20:400:20:45

-Life is going to change.

0:20:450:20:47

-Dad made me realise

-that this was my career.

0:20:510:20:54

-It was fantastic

-but I could have lost my way.

0:20:540:20:58

-He kept me grounded,

-as my family always do.

0:20:590:21:01

-"Keep grounded and think

-about what you want from life."

0:21:010:21:05

-We're here. London.

-Oh, no, you can't see.

0:21:050:21:08

-This is London.

-Victoria stop, I think.

0:21:090:21:12

-London. We've arrived.

0:21:150:21:17

-It's huge, London, isn't it, Dad?

0:21:180:21:20

-It's so different to home.

0:21:230:21:25

-We're not in the Rhondda now!

0:21:250:21:28

-Between now

-and you going to judges' houses...

0:21:290:21:33

-..the show's going to be on TV.

0:21:330:21:35

-It's going to explode.

0:21:350:21:37

-You'll no longer be

-Lloyd Macey from Ynyshir...

0:21:370:21:41

-..you'll be Lloyd Macey

-from X Factor.

0:21:410:21:43

-I'm at the end of the line,

-I'll be in the vicinity.

0:21:440:21:47

-If you need anything, get in touch.

0:21:470:21:50

-Don't sign anything

-without speaking to me.

0:21:500:21:53

-I can give you a ring if I need to.

0:21:530:21:55

-Good luck.

0:21:550:21:57

-Thank you.

0:21:580:22:00

-OK?

0:22:130:22:14

-How did it go?

0:22:150:22:17

-How did it go?

-

-OK. It was an experience.

0:22:170:22:19

-I have loads to talk about,

-loads of things to consider.

0:22:200:22:25

-I've already signed a lot of things.

0:22:280:22:31

-Some of the questions they asked,

-I didn't expect them at all.

0:22:320:22:37

-Quite personal.

0:22:370:22:39

-Will I be OK

-with the family being filmed...

0:22:390:22:42

-..and paparazzi turning up at home?

0:22:430:22:45

-My life's going to change so much.

0:22:460:22:48

-I knew that this programme was big

-but maybe not as big as it is.

0:22:480:22:54

-Hello? Hello?

0:22:540:22:56

-It's Nan.

0:22:560:22:57

-It's Nan.

-

-Are you OK?

0:22:570:22:58

-How'd you go, love?

0:22:580:23:00

-Brilliant, thanks.

-I'm on the Megabus on the way back.

0:23:010:23:04

-It was brilliant.

-We had to choose from three lawyers.

0:23:040:23:10

-I chose a really good one.

0:23:110:23:13

-She's worked with people

-like Sam Smith, One Direction...

0:23:130:23:18

-..and people in the business.

0:23:180:23:20

-They've told me to go through all my

-Facebook and Twitter and YouTube...

0:23:210:23:26

-..just to make a professional page

-and then the other side of it.

0:23:260:23:30

-Anything I don't want to be shown in

-the newspaper, I need to take down.

0:23:300:23:34

-Is Dad with you, is he?

0:23:350:23:37

-He's on the bus as well.

0:23:370:23:39

-Just to prepare us, really, and you.

0:23:390:23:42

-They said speak to the family

-as well to prepare us for the show.

0:23:420:23:47

-Five o'clock we left the house.

0:23:480:23:50

-I can tell Mam's come back

-looking at the car parked.

0:23:510:23:54

-Hello.

0:24:010:24:03

-Hello. Alright?

0:24:040:24:07

-How did it go?

0:24:070:24:08

-Good, thanks.

0:24:090:24:11

-Have you had a good day?

0:24:110:24:13

-Yeah, 18 hours. I know.

0:24:130:24:16

-So proud of you, love. Well done.

0:24:160:24:19

-Tell me all about it.

-I'm going to make a cup of tea.

0:24:190:24:23

-It was just like, yeah.

0:24:230:24:25

-The lawyers were there,

-the press team were there...

0:24:250:24:28

-..telling me about social media

-and how I had to change everything.

0:24:280:24:32

-There might be paparazzi outside.

0:24:320:24:35

-What? Oh, my God.

0:24:350:24:37

-They told me what I've got to say.

0:24:370:24:40

-They gave me different forms

-and that...

0:24:400:24:43

-..like how careful

-I've got to be and stuff.

0:24:430:24:46

-Are you ready for this?

0:24:460:24:48

-We've got to be now. It's too late.

0:24:490:24:51

-I'm so proud of you.

0:24:510:24:53

-Come on, let's have a cup of tea.

0:24:530:24:56

-Come on then.

0:24:560:24:57

-By Christmas, our lives

-will completely change.

0:24:590:25:03

-Let's be prepared

-for a rollercoaster...

0:25:030:25:06

-..the next couple of months

-so good luck.

0:25:060:25:09

-Cheers!

0:25:100:25:11

-Good luck, babe.

0:25:120:25:14

-Good luck to us. To you and Dad.

0:25:140:25:16

-You're the one

-who's doing all the hard work.

0:25:160:25:19

-I've got to have the family

-behind me, though.

0:25:190:25:22

-FIRST TRANSMISSION

0:25:220:25:26

-OK, one more for the camera, right.

0:25:260:25:28

-Pretend it's not there.

-We'll take a selfie.

0:25:290:25:32

-I watched the first programme

-with all my family...

0:25:360:25:39

-..in Mam-gu's house.

0:25:400:25:41

-Everyone was supporting me.

0:25:420:25:43

-Everyone was supporting me.

-

-Lloydy! Lloydy!

0:25:430:25:45

-Lloydy! Lloydy!

0:25:460:25:48

-I had so many messages. "I'm sure

-I've just seen your Nan on telly."

0:25:480:25:52

-People said "Nan Chrissie

-is sitting next to Simon."

0:25:520:25:56

-People who didn't believe me were

-saying "Sorry I didn't believe you."

0:25:560:26:02

-I was replying, "I told you so."

0:26:020:26:05

-Me and Mam-gu were sitting there

-wondering if it was going to happen.

0:26:160:26:20

-Mam-gu played the game by saying,

-"I hope he gets through."

0:26:200:26:24

-People were saying, "You can drop

-the act. We know he gets through."

0:26:240:26:28

-It was great to have my friend

-filming me in Mam-gu's house...

0:26:330:26:37

-..with all the family

-and him saying how proud he was.

0:26:370:26:41

-He couldn't sit and watch,

-we had to capture this on camera...

0:26:410:26:45

-..because this was

-a life-changing moment.

0:26:450:26:48

-Ogi, ogi, ogi!

-Ogi, ogi, ogi!

-a fan of the programme...

0:27:430:27:46

-..and this year,

-I'm part of the six.

0:27:470:27:49

-It's just made me think,

-"What on earth is happening?"

0:27:500:27:54

-You take Mam to work this morning?

0:27:540:27:56

-She got up for eight, fair play.

0:27:560:27:59

-There's no time to lose.

0:28:030:28:05

-It's not long till I go. Time

-to choose a song for judges' houses.

0:28:350:28:37

-I'm excited and looking forward

-to travelling to Istanbul.

0:28:370:28:42

-'Amdani', as Buddug would say.

0:28:420:28:44

-I'm so excited

-and looking forward to it. Cheerio!

0:28:440:28:48

-We're at judges' houses now

-and this is Sam Black.

0:28:490:28:52

-Alright, mate?

0:28:520:28:54

-This is the view.

0:28:540:28:56

-This house is amazing.

-Look at the boat we're going on.

0:28:560:29:00

-We'd gone from 5,000 people

-down to two people.

0:29:020:29:07

-All I could think about,

-if I'm totally honest...

0:29:070:29:10

-..I'd done this

-in an eisteddfod many times.

0:29:100:29:12

-Judges in front of me.

-Remember the eisteddfod.

0:29:120:29:15

-I like this guy.

0:29:150:29:17

-Hello.

0:29:190:29:20

-What's your song?

0:29:200:29:22

-How Far I'll Go from the film Moana.

0:29:220:29:25

-# See the line

-where the sky meets the sea?

0:29:260:29:28

-# It calls me

0:29:280:29:30

0:29:400:29:42

-Mika, what do you think?

-

-I think there's no-one like you.

0:29:420:29:45

-You hold up a different flag.

0:29:460:29:48

-How are you? Sit down and tell me.

0:29:490:29:52

-How are you feeling?

0:29:520:29:54

-Nervous. Excited. Anxious.

0:29:540:29:57

-You know what I'm gonna tell you.

0:29:580:29:59

0:31:160:31:18

-Being on the X Factor and getting

-all this attention isn't important.

0:31:180:31:23

-That's not what life is.

0:31:230:31:26

-What's important is love and

-remembering where you come from...

0:31:260:31:30

-..and friends, community.

0:31:310:31:35

-It makes me appreciate the fact that

-I'm standing on the X Factor stage.

0:31:360:31:41

-It also reminds me

-why I'm doing it.

0:31:410:31:44

-# E is even more

-In London,

-walking down the street...

0:32:000:32:02

-..waving at people or smiling.

0:32:020:32:05

-Someone told me,

-"They don't do that up here much.

0:32:050:32:09

-"You'll find that people

-walk past each other.

0:32:090:32:12

-"It's a busy area, London."

0:32:130:32:14

-When I'm home I stop on the street

-and talk for half an hour sometimes.

0:32:150:32:19

-It's a different way of life.

0:32:190:32:21

-# Love was made for me and you #

-MOVING TO THE X FACTOR HOUSE

0:32:290:32:31

-Just put the cake there.

-Get your shoes that you're taking.

0:32:320:32:36

-Yes, I've got everything.

-Don't film in here, Mam'll go crazy!

0:32:390:32:42

-It's untidy.

0:32:430:32:44

-Toiletries.

0:32:440:32:45

-Toiletries.

-

-I'll have to sort that now.

0:32:450:32:47

-Now rub that in your hands.

-Two hands together.

0:32:480:32:52

-Apply to the facial area.

0:32:520:32:54

-Mam, where are the socks?

0:32:550:32:57

-Where are the socks?

0:32:570:32:59

-With the pants.

-Oh, no, with the new pants.

0:33:000:33:03

-Just be yourself and you'll be fine.

0:33:030:33:06

-Come here.

0:33:060:33:08

-Call me, call.

-Good luck, my darling.

0:33:080:33:11

-Love you.

0:33:110:33:12

-Love you.

0:33:130:33:14

-Have I got everything now?

0:33:150:33:18

-We can always send it up to you.

-Look after yourself.

0:33:180:33:21

-Keep in touch, right. Good luck.

0:33:240:33:26

-OK, right.

0:33:270:33:28

-OK, right.

-Love you.

-Come here.

0:33:410:33:42

-All the luck in the world, love.

-Love you so much.

0:33:420:33:45

-I'll be thinking of you

-every second.

0:33:460:33:48

-Don't take no messing off no-one.

0:33:480:33:51

-I won't.

-They'll have you to deal with.

0:33:510:33:54

-Oh, God, Lloyd. Good luck.

0:33:550:33:57

-Believe in yourself now, right.

0:33:570:33:59

-Really believe in yourself

-and show them what you're made of.

0:34:000:34:04

-I will.

0:34:040:34:05

-Point at them.

0:34:110:34:13

-The whole experience

-is surreal right now.

0:34:150:34:18

-I live in London.

-I go to meetings with newspapers.

0:34:180:34:21

-I'm in the building

-where Sharon is getting ready.

0:34:210:34:26

-There's also a room here,

-Simon Cowell's room.

0:34:260:34:30

-This is where the set is created.

-I think that's for me.

0:34:310:34:35

-Hello.

0:34:370:34:39

-This is where we eat every day.

0:34:390:34:41

-This is my favourite.

0:34:410:34:44

-Thank you.

0:34:450:34:46

-A lot of things changed.

0:34:470:34:50

-My appearance became more important.

0:34:500:34:53

-People were brought in

-for teeth whitening.

0:34:530:34:57

-Then facials.

0:34:570:34:59

-Spray tan. It's a different world

-to the one I'm used to.

0:35:000:35:04

-Louis spoke to us all...

0:35:070:35:10

-..and gave us all advice.

0:35:100:35:12

-He told me the way I was is great,

-my voice is incredible...

0:35:130:35:17

-..but I need to lose weight.

0:35:170:35:19

-"People aren't voting

-with just their ears...

0:35:190:35:22

-"..they're voting with their eyes."

0:35:220:35:25

-They want to see someone

-who looks good.

0:35:250:35:28

-They showed me how

-to make everything look perfect.

0:35:290:35:33

-I was starting to turn into,

-I wouldn't say a robot...

0:35:330:35:37

-..I was turning into Lloyd Macey

-but not the familiar Lloyd Macey...

0:35:370:35:42

-..but Lloyd Macey the performer.

0:35:420:35:44

-When my family and friends come,

-they wait here.

0:35:450:35:49

-There are long queues of people

-before they go into the studio.

0:35:490:35:54

-The toilets are there,

-everything's outside.

0:35:540:35:57

-It's cold, Mam-gu always says

-it's cold but she loves the studio.

0:35:570:36:01

-It's worth the wait.

0:36:020:36:03

-THE LIVE SHOWS

0:36:040:36:09

-Team Lloyd in the car right now.

-Dad Darren.

0:36:120:36:15

-Hey, Darren, how are you feeling?

0:36:160:36:18

-A little bit nervous but I know

-he's going to do his best.

0:36:180:36:22

-That's all that counts for us.

0:36:220:36:24

-That's all that counts for us.

-

-He is the best in the competition.

0:36:240:36:26

-Hello, everyone. Hello, Mam.

0:36:270:36:29

-You are lookin' 'andsome.

0:36:300:36:32

-You look fabulous.

-I'm glad I've seen you.

0:36:320:36:35

-Cheerio!

0:36:350:36:37

-Love you, love.

0:36:370:36:39

-You have reached your destination.

0:36:410:36:43

-I can't believe I'm here.

0:36:460:36:48

-I have a student singing

-in the X Factor. It's very exciting.

0:36:490:36:53

-The live shows

-is the first chance...

0:36:530:36:57

-..for the audience and viewers

-to vote.

0:36:570:37:01

-You're not only performing

-for the judges...

0:37:010:37:04

-..you're performing for everyone.

0:37:050:37:07

-Lloyd Macey!

0:37:070:37:10

-# I don't care if I know

0:37:100:37:13

-# Just where I will go

0:37:130:37:15

-# 'Cause all that I need

-is this crazy feeling

0:37:150:37:18

-# A rat-tat-tat in my heart

0:37:190:37:22

-# Think I want it to stay

0:37:220:37:28

-# City of stars

0:37:310:37:33

-When I sing,

-I feel happy and confident.

0:37:330:37:36

-I forget that millions of people

-are watching.

0:37:360:37:40

-# City of stars

0:37:410:37:43

-# You never shined so brightly #

0:37:440:37:52

-I'm through, as are Rak-Su.

-They were fantastic.

0:38:030:38:07

-I think the world of them,

-they're great.

0:38:070:38:10

-They're so much fun to live with.

-We're having an amazing time.

0:38:100:38:14

-We love him!

0:38:140:38:16

-I'm trying to teach them Welsh.

0:38:160:38:19

-Yeah, yeah, it's, uh, I've got...

0:38:190:38:21

-He's got nothing. He's got nothing.

0:38:220:38:24

-I can't remember.

0:38:250:38:26

-I can't remember.

-

-Next time!

0:38:260:38:27

-How do you feel?

0:38:280:38:29

-How do you feel?

-

-Marvellous.

0:38:290:38:30

-Michelle, Buddug, how was tonight?

0:38:320:38:35

-Absolutely amazing.

0:38:350:38:38

-Nannie Chris?

0:38:380:38:40

-Weren't it, Nan?

0:38:400:38:41

-Weren't it, Nan?

-

-Absolutely...

0:38:410:38:42

-Perfect.

0:38:440:38:45

-It's strange,

-I was so happy to go through.

0:38:540:38:57

-Then I reverted back

-to being shy Lloyd.

0:38:570:39:00

-I remember going to VIP

-to meet everyone.

0:39:000:39:03

-It was like being back

-in school again.

0:39:030:39:07

-Fantastic day, fantastic day.

0:39:150:39:17

-See you soon.

-After the first live show,

-everything changed.

0:39:570:40:01

-Even if I left the house

-to go and rehearse in the studios...

0:40:020:40:07

-..in the newspaper that night

-or the following morning...

0:40:080:40:11

-.."Lloyd Macey walks out

-of the house carrying..."

0:40:120:40:15

-I had an Asda bag.

0:40:150:40:17

-The press then called to say

-be careful what you're advertising.

0:40:180:40:22

-Every time I went somewhere...

0:40:220:40:24

-..the producers booked taxis for us.

0:40:240:40:27

-We'd get into taxis

-with blacked-out windows.

0:40:270:40:31

-The paparazzi took photos of us.

0:40:310:40:33

-I thought "Whoa, this is big."

0:40:330:40:36

-I remember meeting my friend...

0:40:360:40:39

-..and we went for a meal

-and had a little catch-up.

0:40:390:40:43

-People were watching us

-and staring at us.

0:40:430:40:46

-It was too much then.

0:40:470:40:49

-In the house, I couldn't leave.

0:40:500:40:53

-I tried to make it

-as natural as I could...

0:40:530:40:58

-..to try and make out I wasn't in

-a... I don't know, not a prison...

0:40:580:41:03

-..but somewhere I couldn't leave.

0:41:030:41:05

-A few times I longed

-for some time with my family...

0:41:060:41:10

-..or I wanted

-to do something normal.

0:41:100:41:13

-It was busy

-but I felt alone for the first time.

0:41:130:41:18

-I wasn't home with everyone I know

-around me.

0:41:180:41:22

-At times, I thought,

-this is too much.

0:41:230:41:27

-I just wanted to be home with

-the family but I knew I couldn't be.

0:41:270:41:31

-Then I was asking myself

-if I was still enjoying it.

0:41:310:41:36

-Has this become too much for me?

0:41:370:41:39

-Yeah, a couple of times

-I decided I wanted to leave.

0:41:400:41:43

-Every time I felt ready to leave

-or that it was all too much...

0:41:450:41:49

-..I checked my Facebook page.

0:41:500:41:53

-Good luck, Lloyd.

0:41:530:41:54

-Wanna wish you the best of luck

-for Saturday. You'll smash it.

0:41:590:42:04

-Good luck to Lloyd.

0:42:050:42:06

-Good luck, Lloyd.

0:42:060:42:07

-Good luck, Lloyd.

-Good luck, Lloyd.

0:42:070:42:09

-We'll put some up.

0:42:190:42:20

-Good afternoon, customers,

-we have a message from Nannie Chris.

0:42:210:42:25

-Vote for Lloyd this weekend,

-please, in the X Factor.

0:42:260:42:29

-Very, very proud of him.

0:42:290:42:31

-I'm just...

0:42:320:42:34

-..hoping now he can

-go through because I love him.

0:42:340:42:38

-He deserves it.

0:42:380:42:39

-I have to carry on.

0:42:420:42:44

-This will only be a small part

-of my life.

0:42:440:42:48

-I have to make the most of it.

0:42:480:42:50

-Lloyd Macey.

0:42:530:42:55

-# I'd say love was a magical thing

0:42:570:43:00

-# I'd say love

-would keep us from pain

0:43:010:43:05

-# Had I been there

0:43:050:43:07

-When I sing and perform,

-I just feel so much relief.

0:43:080:43:13

-It makes me feel comfortable.

0:43:130:43:15

-# I should go back

-to being lonely and confused

0:43:150:43:23

-The way I see it, every song

-has a beginning, middle and end.

0:43:250:43:29

-There's a certainty in a song,

-there's certainty in singing.

0:43:290:43:33

-In everyday life, you don't know

-what's going to happen.

0:43:330:43:37

-# I swear #

0:43:440:43:48

-I went through to the semi-final

-of the X Factor, but no further.

0:44:100:44:15

-The week before I left

-the competition...

0:44:150:44:18

-..I had the amazing experience...

0:44:180:44:21

-..of performing before Little Mix

-in Manchester.

0:44:210:44:24

-I'm at the Little Mix UK Tour,

-the Glory Days.

0:44:300:44:33

-I can't believe I'll be performing

-tonight before 21,000 people.

0:44:340:44:38

-I walked into the stadium

-and had the shock of my life.

0:44:380:44:42

-I can't wait to get out

-on that stage and perform.

0:44:420:44:46

-It's just opening up,

-I'm so excited to perform tonight.

0:44:460:44:51

-Hello, Manchester.

0:44:530:44:55

-So, I went from people

-in the Rhondda knowing me...

0:45:070:45:10

-..to people in London knowing me and

-now people in Manchester knowing me.

0:45:110:45:15

-It made me think that people around

-the world were starting to know me.

0:45:160:45:20

-# And you'll be alright

0:45:200:45:26

-# I don't care if I know

0:45:260:45:29

-# Just where I will go

0:45:290:45:32

-# 'Cause all that I need

-is this crazy feeling

0:45:320:45:35

-If anyone had told me I'd reach this

-far, I wouldn't have believed them.

0:45:350:45:39

-# Think I want it to stay #

0:45:390:45:44

-It still feels like a dream today.

0:46:000:46:03

-I've come far, I've been

-on an incredible platform...

0:46:180:46:22

-..but I couldn't wait

-to come back home.

0:46:230:46:26

-I think succeeding

-and being successful...

0:47:080:47:11

-..even though it's incredible...

0:47:120:47:14

-..it can be lonely

-because I'll be alone.

0:47:140:47:18

-I have a chance to reach the top.

0:47:280:47:30

-I'm not sure how I feel...

0:47:320:47:36

-..about leaving everything behind.
