Isaiah performs raw 'It's Gotta Be You' in Nova's Red Room

The X Factor Australia winner stopped by the Red Room to sing his new track

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Nova's Red Room's latest guest Isaiah is a shining example of this. Last year, he appeared on The X Factor Australia, but, after forgetting his lyrics during the audition, didn't manage to make it far. However, fast forward to this year, and the 17-year-old from country Victoria walked away with the singing competition show’s winner.

Isaiah says after the first attempt, he was almost too scared to even audition a second time.

"Luckily I had really supportive people around me who encouraged me to forget about the year before and just have another go and I am so glad I did."

This month he releases his self-titled album with re-recorded studio tracks of some of his best performances on X Factor including, ‘‘Halo’, ‘A Change Is Gonna Come’ and ‘FourFiveSeconds’ and his winning single, ‘It’s Gotta Be You’’. 


Isaiah stopped by the Red Room this week to perform a stripped-back version of the new single alongside his guitarist.

The singer also took the time to perform one of the most beautiful covers of 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas' we've ever heard. We're pinching ourselves, it's that good.
