An Irish priest was among the acts shown auditioning for Britain's Got Talent over the weekend. 

Father Ray Kelly performed a powerful rendition of R.E.M's 'Everybody Hurts'. The 64-year-old from Oldcastle in Co. Meath went viral 4 years ago after a video of him singing at a wedding ceremony went viral on YouTube. 

Kelly's emotional audition on the ITV show ended in a standing ovation from the judges and the audience. 

We dare you not to well up...

Check out the original video of Father Kelly singing a version of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' in 2014:

We can't wait to see what Father Ray Kelly sings next!
