American RnB singer Aiden Grimshaw debuted in music as an X Factor contestant

He attended the Michael Hall Theatre School. Before auditioning for The X Factor, he played Tom Holmes in an episode of CBBC show Half Moon Investigations. He auditioned with "Gold Digger", prompting Cowell to say "Now that's what I call a pop star!". He then auditioned with "This Year's Love" during Bootcamp, and "Cannonball" at Judge's Houses.

Dannii Minogue selected Grimshaw as one of her three contestants to continue in the competition for the live shows. For the first live show he sang "Mad World", which the judges praised. In the second live show he sang "Jealous Guy". In the third live show, his performance of "Diamonds Are Forever" was praised by the judges. In live show 4 he sang a slower rendition of Michael Jackson's "Thriller". Grimshaw sang "Nothing Compares 2 U" in week 5, and in week 6, Grimshaw sang "Rocket Man". Grimshaw landed in the final showdown that week, along with Katie Waissel. While he was saved by Minogue and Walsh in the judges vote, Cole and Cowell had voted for Waissel to stay, thus leaving the votes deadlocked. The public vote revealed that Grimshaw received the fewest votes and he was eliminated.

His debut album, Misty Eye, is due for release on 13 August 2012 via RCA Records. It will be preceded by his debut single, Is This Love, which was released on the 3rd of June.The music video for Grimshaw's new single was released on YouTube on 30 April 2012.

On June 29th, Aiden premièred Curtain Call on The Scott Mills Show on Friday, which will be the second single from his hotly anticipated debut album 'Misty Eye'. The single offers up a different direction than his first single. 'Curtain Call' plays thematically like a snapshot of Aiden's mind before his relationship fell desperately apart.
