It took him five years but Ronan finally has success on the Australian X Factor as he mentored 15 -year-old Marlissa to take the title as this year’s winner.
Marlissa, known for her shy personality moved all four judges to their feet in her audition with a rendition John Lennon’s Yesterday.
Marlissa has slowly come out of her shell week by week and blown everyone away.
We can’t believe she’s 15! WOW!
She also performed at Ronan’s annual Emerald and Ivy Charity Ball in Sydney on October 10 along with such celebrities as fellow judge Red Foo and of course Boyzone.
Her debut single Stand by You is out now and we just love it!
Congrats Marlissa (and of course Ronan)
