A 14-YEAR-OLD schoolgirl from Stevenage is through to the final of ITV1’s Britain’s Got Talent after taking to the stage last night (Tuesday).
Gabz Gardiner was voted in the top three acts by the public following a live performance of her own composition, The One.
The Nobel School student, who sung, rapped and played the piano, is through to the live final after all four judges chose her over musical duo Jack and Cormac.
Gabz joins young comedian Jack Carroll for the final on June 8, along with 11-year-old singer Arisxandra and operatic duo Richard and Adam, who emerged victorious from the first semi-final on Monday.
After Gabz’ performance, judge and Little Britain comedian David Walliams said: “Simon Cowell get that song on to iTunes now that is a number one record.”
Actress and TV presenter Amanda Holden said: “You are a little star in the making. Listening to your voice and listening to the lyrics it was kind of like when Lily Allen first broke, it’s the same kind of feeling I had. Adsolutely amazing, well done.”
While head judge Simon, who created the show, added: “I absolutely love you, you’ve got such a great smile, even when you perform you’re so infectious, so likeable. I agree the song is a hit, I like the production on it, your piano playing has improved, I like what you’re wearing. You’re like a little popstar.”
