Speaking to West End Frame about his win, Dagleish said: "This is such an amazing honour seeing as it was voted for by the public. We're not at the biggest theatre in the West End but we obviously have the best fans, and it's them I want to thank for making this happen. So thank you! You know who you are! Also, it can't have hurt my chances of winning when I was nominated for singing one of the greatest songs ever written. Thank you Ray!! Waterloo Sunset's fine!"

The 2015 West End Frame Awards began in March with Sunny Afternoon being named Most Inspiring West End Show. Dagleish's win marks the first time the same show has won multiple West End Frame Awards in one year. 

Voting for Best Performance of a Song 2015 opened on Friday 8th May and closed on Wednesday 27th May. Last year the Award was won by Tam Mutu for his rendition of ‘Stars’ in Les Miserables. Previous winners also include Rachel Tucker ('Defying Gravity'/Wicked) and Sofia Escobar ('Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again'/The Phantom of the Opera).

Unlike other theatre awards, West End Frame only opens voting for one category at a time and combines male and female actors from new and long-running productions into the same categories (where applicable).

Congratulations to all the nominees and thank you to everybody who voted

*The Billys are Bradley Perret, Ollie Jochim, Brodie Donougher & Thomas Hazelby.
**The Matildas are Lara Mcdonnell, Lottie Sicilia, Violet Tucker, Anna-Louise Knight & Matilda Shapland.
