Rhydian James Roberts (born 14 February 1983), known as Rhydian, is a Welsh singer, musical theatre actor and television presenter.
Of his five studio albums, the first went platinum, and composer Karl Jenkins co-produced his second. After forays into 1980s pop classics and Welsh songs, his fifth album release, One Day like This, returned to the "flamboyant crossover style" which established his reputation, topping the UK classical album charts within one week of release in April 2014. It went on to hold the No 1 spot for 10 weeks.
Rhydian has completed three solo UK tours since appearing on The X Factor. His UK galas and charity appearances include the Royal Albert Hall, and he is an ambassador of The Prince's Trust.
Following his musical theatre debut in a European arena tour of The War of the Worlds - Alive on Stage!, Rhydian has toured the UK in We Will Rock You, Grease, and The Rocky Horror Show, and is currently playing Pontius Pilate in a UK tour of Jesus Christ Superstar.
