Headliners reporters met with Joe McElderry at the Paralympic Flame Festival in Belfast.

"The night started with a bang when we received our press passes which made us very excited and we were lucky enough to get a interview with Joe McElderry" said Naomi.
"Later on stage was when the party really started and he performed hits such as ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ and ‘The Climb’ as well as his new material which had the crowd screaming for more!", said Emma.
