Here is one of the highlights from week one of Britain’s Got Talent 2013, Alice Fredenham singing ‘My Funny Valentine’.
Going into the audition, the 28 year old hadn’t told any of her friends or family she was going on the show in case the judges didn’t like her.
But if Alice had genuinely thought she was going to get buzzed off for not being good enough, then she couldn’t have been more wrong.
As usually seems to be the case on these talent shows, it’s the over confident people who turn out to be rubbish and the nervous ones that doubt themselves who prove to be great.
It was plain to see from the video the beauty therapist from Hertfordshire, England really impressed Simon Cowell.
When you consider just how many singing auditions he’s heard of the years, that really says something for Alice Fredenham’s vocal abilities and potential.
The song ‘My Funny Valentine’ comes from the 1937 musical ‘Babes in Arms’.
Alice Fredenham also appeared on the 2013 series of The Voice UK where she sang the more up-tempo song ‘Lady Is A Tramp’.
Amazingly, during her audition none of the four coaches turned around meaning Alice didn’t progress any further in the competition.
So we’ll have to wait and find out if The Voice’s loss proves to be Simon Cowell and BGT’s gain.
