Ronan Parke and his friend Julia.

13-year old Ronan Parke is Britain's Justin Bieber.

Ronan was brought up in a village in Norfolk, in the UK.

His Dad is a builder and his Mum's a nurse.

Britain's Justin Bieber.

Some months ago, Ronan appeared in Britain’s Got Talent.

His outstanding voice, 'angelic looks' and huge charisma made him the bookies' favourite.

An anonymous blogger produced a post suggesting that Britain's Got Talent was rigged.

Ronan came second in the contest, presumably saving the bookies some money.

Ronan is quoted in the Daily Mail as saying:

"Mum didn't want me to see the internet blogger thing, but I did anyway.

"It was all just lies.

"I was upset that people could say things like that.

"Simon called my mum up and said he was really sorry about it and very angry.

"He is such a lovely man.

"My parents said, 'We know the truth. You just need to concentrate on your performance.'

"When I was on the stage in the final I closed my eyes and forgot about all of it.

"Then when I finished and looked at Simon he gave me a little wink.

"I thought, 'Oh,' and wanted to smile."

Ronan prefers 'fashion' and 'music' to sport.

Ronan says: "Some kids would call me 'gay' when I'd walk past them.

"Some of the other boys just care about sport. I’m not like that.

"Instead I like to plan with my best friend Julia what our flat will be like when we're older.

"But everyone on TV gets things like that and I accept it."

"Girls do come up to me crying and shaking and say, 'I love you so much.'

"One day Julia and I were walking home when two girls saw us and just stood there, screaming.

"Julia was so shocked. To her I’m just Ronan, her best friend.

"My mum says you should always be who you are.

"If you try to change, you’ll only be unhappy. I'm me."

And the kids at school? "The ones who used to shout things at me smile at me now.

"I just smile back."

Ronan Parke’s album is out on 24 October on Sony Music.

Like Ronan Parke, Ruby Murray first appeared on UK TV at the age of 12.

Ruby Murray had been been spotted by producer Richard Afton.

"Owing to laws governing children performing, Murray had to delay her start in the entertainment industry until she was 14." (Ruby Murray - Wikipedia)

In 1955 Ruby Murray had seven 'Top 10 UK hit singles.'

Michael Junior (Michael Veschuere) was born in Bruges, Belgium in 1986.

His career began in March, 1998, when he sang Panis Angelicus with Helmut Lotti at the Casino of Oostende in Belgium.
