Twelve-year-old Ronan Parke gave a performance of a lifetime on Britain's Got Talent while singing Kelly Clarkson's "Because of You." Taking on the powerful ballad is not an easy feat, but little Ronan stunned not only the audience, but the judges as well! He sang with so much maturity that it is hard to believe he is so young!

The judges all praised him and gave him a standing ovation. Judge Michael McIntyre loved his performance so much that he said:

"That was perfect. I think it was perfect. I'm such a great fan of yours that I felt nervous when you walked on and was so hoping that you would do well. And I was put at ease, literally, with the first note.  And It was perfection from then on. And I love the song as well because it can show off just how much strength you have in your voice. It was just absolutely exceptional and I would pay to go and see you. Definitely."  

The other judges agreed with his statement, as did the audience.  His vocals were stunning and at such a young age, you can tell he has a long career ahead of him.

"Because of You" was written and recorded by Kelly Clarkson for her second album, Breakaway.  She originally wrote the song when she was sixteen-years-old, to deal with the pain of her parents' divorce.  It explores the pain of her deteriorating relationship with her father.  It's one of her most successful hits, and became certified platinum, selling over 1.5 million digital downloads.

Ronan put his own spin to it, even bringing in a choir to join him the chorus! He ended up being the runner-up on the fifth season of the talent-competition show, despite being the fan favorite. He got a recording contract with Sony Records days after the show ended and put out an album!

Check out his jaw-dropping performance below!

Lyrics

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did,
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you
