Filipino nurse Rodelle Borja received a standing ovation in Ireland’s Got Talent.

The 29-year old, who works in a nursing home in Dublin, Ireland, was commended for his rendition of "Can't Help Falling In Love.”

All four judges stood up and clapped for him at the end of his performance.

“Brilliant, you nailed that. You’re a beautiful human-being you got beautiful voice” said judge Jason Byrne.

American singer Michelle Visage also praised the Filipino nurse’s performance.

“You have nothing to be nervous about, yours did not get in your way but what I love most in your version is that you made it 100% your way. I didn’t hear any echo of Elvis Presley at all, it was all Rodelle.”

Denise Van Outen added: “It is such a beautiful moment hearing you, it was so lovely.”

Rodelle’s heart-melting rendition earned him four yes votes from the judges.

In an interview, Rodelle disclosed that he joined the competition in order to inspire other people.

“Growing up with stutter was quite difficult because I am not really that confident in expressing myself by talking. I expressed myself more, better by singing," he said.
