On Monday night, seven million viewers saw a 6-year old Angel by the name of Connie Talbot sing Somewhere Over The Rainbow at the ITV1’s Britain’s Got Talent Birmingham auditions.
She received a standing ovation and left the programme’s three judges, Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan, speechless.
The trio of panellists will vote to decide if Connie makes it through to the following evening’s studio final for the chance to sing in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Show and win £100,000.
“This girl is just special,” Cowell told the Mail last night. “I have never felt such a powerful silence in my life as when Connie sang. It was pure magic.
