Britain's Got Talent contestant Aleksandar Mileusnic has told BOB fm it was an honour to meet Simon Cowell - and even better to be told 'a star is born'!

The 23-year-old from Stevenage recently impressed Judges with a swing version of the White Stripes' Seven Nation Army.

He's been telling us that having previously worked for a council in Hertfordshire, he now has fresh ambitions to make it in the music industry.

Aleksandar - who has just become a Dad - is no stranger to TV talent shows, having appeared on The Voice UK in 2012, when he was 17, under the name Aleks Josh. Aleksandar actually reached the quarter-finals of the first series!

But, he says his recent delve back into the spotlight is incredible, especially being complimented highly by the TV talent show Judges: "Simon Cowell is a big, big hero of mine so I suppose it was like meeting a hero of mine. He is massive in the industry and love him or hate him, I think he is amazing.

What he has done in the UK and America is huge. Praise coming from him was the best thing I ever heard".

Aleksandar went on to tell us about his choice of audition music: "I love jazz, blues, swing, big band, r 'n' b, soul, but swing seems to be the one that I always go with - I love that genre".

It's now a waiting game for Aleksandar, who'll find out if he will make it to the live semi-finals later on this series.
