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.

"He applied a few months ago but we heard nothing until Monday - when he got a letter saying he was invited to an audition in Sheffield on July 16.

"He has been walking around with a huge grin on his face since because he just loves singing."
