BUDDING musician Owen Armstrong is tuning his vocal chords ready to face up to television's Mr Nasty - and meet his very own music idol at the same time.
He will be off to Sheffield on July 16 for an audition for this year's X-Factor competition.
His grandmother Sandra Armstrong said though that Owen was not fazed by singing in front of Simon Cowell, and was more looking forward to meeting one of his fellow judges, Sharon Osbourne.
She said: "When Owen watched X-Factor on television he kept saying he would go and audition just to meet her.

Owen, 16, of Blackbear Lane, Walsoken, has just finished his GCSE exams at the Queen's School, and is busy rehearsing his lines for the forthcoming We Will Rock You Queen tribute show which is being held at the Wisbech school between July 10-13.
He has performed in a number of productions at the school and taught himself how to play guitar.
Mrs Armstrong said: "He is going to sing Moondance, one of Van Morrison's songs, because he is a fan of Van Morrison and other similar artists.
