Kieran taught himself how to play piano by watching YouTube videos, and is currently studying at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
Kieran Rhodes' audition in Episode 1704 consisted of singing Billy Joel's "She's Got a Way" while playing the piano. Halfway through the performance, Simon Cowell stopped him, wanting to hear something more original. Kieran then performed his original song "Disengage". All 4 judges voted "Yes", sending him to the next round.
