Reality TV shows don't always have the best outcome for some contestants, however this hasn't been the case for Britain's Got Talent finalist Ryan O'Shaughnessy, who has told Entertainmentwise that the reaction has been 'positive' since the singer entered the show.
Ryan told us: "Since Britain's Got Talent the reaction has been fairly positive and without it I probably wouldn't be sitting here right now."
"BGT did really help with publicity and that's one thing that I wouldn't have got if I'd have stuck with Universal. When I was weighing them up that was a big factor."
However, not everyone can cope with the whole 'studio' experience upon finishing the show and it can be a bit overwhelming at times.
Ryan explained, "I've been in a fair few studios over the years with college so I was used to the whole studio experience, but working one on one with a producer is completely different to just going in for a day and singing in a studio."
"We were in that studio til early hours of the morning. You just get lost and forget what's happening. You get 'into the music' and I really hope that comes across in the album."
The singer then went on to talk about his current single: "No Name is the kind of song that I think people wanna hear. It's out at the minute and I saw it the other day on the TV. To see your own song on music channels is a bit mental...I hope people like it!"
"I'd describe my album as pretty easy-listening. I asked a friend the other day which genre I fall into and she said 'true', which is interesting. I think all my songs are true!"
